iOS 12 Jailbreak: SorryMyBad Releases iOS 12-12.1.1 Jailbreak Proof-Of-Concept

1:40 PM

Gather around jailbreak fans, because we’ve got some interesting news regarding the iOS 12.1.1 jailbreak. SorryMyBad (@S0rryMyBad) of 360 Vulcan team shared a proof-of-concept.

The Announcement

Just a few days ago, SorryMyBad tweeted an interesting screenshot. It was a proof-of-concept of the bug that he used to jailbreak before which could work below iOS 12.1.2. So anyone who is interested of it must have their device running iOS 12.1.1 or lower? Thankfully, Apple is still signing in iOS 12.1.1 and iOS 12.1.2 so it’s not too late yet to downgrade from iOS 12.1.3 in order to take advantage of it. Hopefully, this will lead to a public iOS 12.1.1 jailbreak release.

In addition to that, he also mentioned that a blog post about the exploit on the A12 chip will come soon.

Previous iOS 12 Jailbreak News

Earlier last week, we published a report about the “(Mach) Post-Oriented Programming Attack Proof series” by the Alibaba team. The first part of the series was about a local privilege escalation for the macOS 10.14.2. The second part of the series was an iOS 12.1.2 exploit which showcases an iOS-powered device showing iOS 12.1.2 (Build 16C101) in operation running on an iPhone 6s.

Later on the same week, we reported about the third part of the series which was still about an iOS 12.1.2 exploit. But instead of an iPhone 6s, the device used was an iPhone XS Max with A12 core.

About this series, It is speculated that this is probably going to form the basis of a presentation at a security conference somewhere in the world. Nevertheless, we still hope that an iOS 12.1.2 jailbreak will be released.

And lastly, just a few days ago, we published a report regarding Brandon Azad (@_bazad), a prominent figure in the jailbreak community, announcement via Twitter. According to him, those who are interested in bootstrapping iOS kernel security research should keep an A12 research device on iOS 12.1.2. Reports hinted that an iOS 12.1.2 jailbreak may be coming out soon.

Are you excited about SorryMyBad’s announcement? When do you think an iOS 12 jailbreak will be released to the public domain? Also, which iOS 12 jailbreak version are you looking forward to the most? iOS 12.1.1 jailbreak or iOS 12.1.2 jailbreak? Tell us in the comment section below.
