Alter analyzing the tweets, we found that there is a high possibility of releasing iOS 12.1 Jailbreak by Umang Raghuvanshi

Yalu Jailbreak for iOS 12.1

Luca Todesco, the well known Italian hacker who was in the drama in iOS 10 jailbreak made his appearance again in iOS 12 after being quiet in iOS 11 Jailbreak. And what he stated is similar to Umang Raghuvanshi, and iOS 12.1 Jailbreak is no longer a dream. Also Luca stated that the devices A12 chip can be jailbroken. That is obviously a good news as jailbreak will be available for latest iPhones.

iOS 12.1 Jailbreak Tweets

Electra Jailbreak for iOS 12.1

Electra jailbreak is the latest jailbreak to appear in iOS jailbreak community for iOS 11.4.1 jailbreak. Hence, many of the community anticipated that Electra would come up with another jailbreak for the latter versions like they did in iOS 11.4 jailbreak and 11.4.1 jailbreak. It has not yet been possible as Apple has patched those vulnerabilities in their latest releases. But Electra by coolstar, being the very latest jailbreak for iOS versions, has a higher possibility to release a tool for iOS 12.1 jailbreak.
How can we expect that? Below is his latest tweets.
Electra is still in touch with the game and rejuvenate Electra with more updates and error fixing.

iOS 12.1 Electra

Coolstar has not let his motivation go down without being able to release a next Electra update for iOS 11.4 jailbreak and is now being prepared for Sileo release making Dynastic Repo a default repo in Electra.

Jailbreak for iOS 12.1 by Keen Labs

Keenlab, the expert chinese security researchers dominated in iOS 11.1.1 jailbreak. After a little while they demonstrated a successful jailbreak for iOS 11.3.1. And very recently Liang Chen and the team of of Keenlab successfully demonstrated iOS 12 beta 1 jailbreak on an iPhone X.
iOS 12 beta 1 jailbreak demo by Keenlab


After all these efforts, KeenLabs has now demoed iOS 12.1 jailbreak on A12 chip inside, iPhone XS Max. This was revealed via a Tweet by Liang Chen. This brand new iPhone XS Max with iOS 12.1 on it has been pwned with proprietary exploits. Image shows the Jailbreak app created by KeenLabs
KeenLabs iOS 12.1 demo

But there is no news of a public release of this iOS 12.1 Jailbreak yet. This can be considered as the first Jailbreak tool for iOS 12.1 but it's not yet clear whether this is untethered, semi-untethered, or tethered. But we will be able to get a news on this iOS 12.1 jailbreak by Keen Labs at POC 2018 on this Friday. This move clearly hints us that the latest Apple technology also can be jailbroken. So the light of a jailbreak from any team is to be shed and stay with Taig9 for your claim of Jailbreak.

0 Day Demonstration on an exploit in iOS 12.1

Richard Zhu and Amat Cama, a duo of white hat hackers won a $60,000 cash prize with the “Master of Pwn” title for identifying an exploit in iOS 12.1 file system. They were able to recover a recently deleted photo from an iPhone X running on iOS 12.1. The exploit they have discovered could be used to access numerous files other than the photos. Now, the Apple has been reported with this exploit which they’ll be addressing in the upcoming release.

New iOS 12.1.2 Jailbreak Exploit

Security researcher S0rryMyBad has confirmed that he will release information related to an iOS 12.x.x vulnerability. Hopefullye the drought will be over and a jailbreak for iOS 12.1 or higher may be appear out of the thin line.
The bug which is reported by S0rryMyBad affects iOS 12.1.2 and below. Further explaining, this is said to be compatible with all pre-A12 devices. That means that iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR owners won't be able to enjoy taste of a jailbreak as they all run Apple’s latest A12 Bionic chipset. But, all the other devices which support iOS 12 would be able to enjoy the snith.

iOS 12.1.2 Jailbreak Exploit
S0rryMyBad has confirmed that this exploit provides the kernel task port (known as tfp0). So this exploit would allow jailbreak developers to read and write to the kernel memory and apply the “necessary jailbreak patches".
Once Apple has officially patched this bug we will be able to hear more from @S0rryMyBad and let's hope for the best and stay with Taig9 for the latest from the jailbreak front.

iOS 12.1.2 Jailbreak Update by Min Zheng of Alibaba

Min Zheng has tweeted about an iOS 12.1.2 exploit. He has attached some screenshots of the terminal and an iOS-powered device showing iOS 12.1.2 (Build 16C101) in operation running on an iPhone 6s.
Now, Min “Spark” Zheng and Xialong Bai have tweeted again saying about an "Attack Proof 3",which has root on iOS 12.1.2 (iPhone XS Max with A12 core). This marks the jailbreak possibility reveal of Apple’s latest A12 Bionic chip that includes the latest hardware such as iPhone XS Max.

iOS 12.1.2 Jailbreak Exploit

All these iOS Jailbreak news along with @S0rryMyBad and tihmstar is indeed a booster and definietely a base for the jailbreak developers. Hang on with Taig9 for more upcoming events and latest news of the Jailbreak community.

iOS 12.1.2 Developer Only Jailbreak by Geosn0w

After some incredible news of iOS 11.4 Jailbreak by Electra, we have now another news of iOS 12.1 Jailbreak. A hacker name Geosn0w has developed a Jailbreak for iOS 12.0-12.1.2 to developers only. This has this limitation which is "Only for Developers". So it is clear enough that OsirisJailbreak12 will not for public usage.

iOS 12.1 Jailbreak Status

iOS 12.1 jailbreak status at the moment is again in green eventhough Apple has made their efforts to patch the vulnerabilities prevailed in the previous versions. Though Keenlab has so far been able to demonstrate a successful jailbreak for iOS 12 beta 1 and now, iOS 12.1 jailbreak, we cannot expect that Apple might stay calm without attempting to find the bug and fix it as they did in iOS 12.0.1 for Luca's invent.
For being precise, there should be work under the skin for a iOS 12.1.1 jailbreak or iOS 12.1 Jailbreak. Bugs which were exist in those versions are fixed in iOS 12.1.2. Jann Horn of the Google Project Zero team has published a privilege escalation bug and this is the reason we are asvising you to stay on iOS 12.1 or iOS 12.0.1 if you wish for a jailbreak. Anyway this moment, is indeed a happy one for the jailbreak lovers, yet truth be told, there’s is no public tool yet for iOS 12.1 jailbreak.

iOS 12.1 Jailbreak Release Date

We know that Apple has already released iOS 12.1. And there has no jailbreak even a demonstration to be found after jailbreak iOS 12 beta 1 release. However as the public version has been released now, the jailbreakers who have methods to jailbreak the latter versions and iOS 12.1 can release those methods in no fear. So the smell is around for a iOS 12.1 Jailbreak. We are keeping our eye on CoolStar from Electra team, KeenLabs and Luca Todesco for the latest news of iOS 12.1 Jailbreak. In the meantime enjoy jailbreak apps and tweaks on your iOS 12.1 with TaigOne.

Cydia for iOS 12.1

Cydia or Sileo for iOS 12.1? It is really a competition between Saurik, the creator of the best app store for jailbroken iOS devices for the last decade and the last year star, CoolStar. It is obvious that Sileo is much faster than Cydia and will bring all the cydia purchases to the new Sileo app. And it is a mind game to select either Cydia or Sileo for iOS 12.1 as both apps have pros and cons. When talking about Cydia, it will be supported by any jailbreak tool like Yalu Jailbreak / Electra / Pangu but it is not sure whether Sileo will be supported by the other jailbreak tools other than Electra. But in general, if both Cydia and Sileo can be installed on iOS 12.1 with jailbreak, it will be a great achievement for jailbreakers and to the jailbreak community.

Cydia vs Sileo for iOS 12.1

Both Cydia and Sileo do the same job for jailbroken devices and it is high time for the new and younger fellow, Sileo to run the game. So we expect Saurik will help Sileo developers with his expertise knowledge of previous years and Sileo will be the next version of Cydia for iOS 12.1 and up.

Cydia vs Sileo for iOS 12.1

Why iOS 12.1 was released?

Apple has provide a new feature in this release: Memoji syncing. Apple has introduced a new daemon to iOS, called avatars. A daemon is a program that runs in the background and is usually necessary to coordinate access to system resources and information between different apps, or to perform activities such as syncing. This new daemon will be used to handle the storage and syncing of Memoji through iCloud.
The feature is only enabled for Apple internal builds of iOS 12.1 at the moment.
The setup app shows "iPad2018falls" and the previous version has only included identifiers for 2018 iPhones.

Latest news in iOS 12.1 Jailbreak Community

iOS 12.1.4 Released

Apple has released their newest edition with the bug fix for their worst bug. Here is how this bug happens.
When you add a person in Group FaceTime, you can hear the audio of the person that you call, before that person accept the call.
This bug mainly effected to the users privacy, so Apple decided to disable this feature. Now, with this iOS 12.1.4, Apple has restored the FaceTime facility. The release notes says: "iOS 12.1.4 provides important security updates and is recommended for all users".

Apple stops signing iOS 12.1.1 And iOS 12.1.2

Apple stopped signing iOS 12.1.1 and iOS 12.1.2 after the release of iOS 12.1.3. This makes it difficult for iOS users to downgrade to the previous build unless thay have saved the blob earlier. Bad news here is, jailbreak users were informed to downgrade to these versions because of the sudden boost of the jailbreak community with RootlessJB, uncOver and other jailbreak tools. So it is advisable to not to update to iOS 12.1.3 if you are a jailbreak lover as iOS 12 - iOS 12.1.2 jailbreak is right behind us.

Cydia Store Shutdown

Saurik took the difficult decsion of pulling out Cydia Store from the jailbreak community. How this will affect you? Well here is the answer. First of all, Cydia Store is a back-end payment system that allowed to purchase paid jailbreak tweaks from default repositories in Cydia, such as BigBoss, MacCiti, and ModMyi. (MacCiti, and ModMyi are no longer available). Please note that this is not the Cydia app.

Cydia Store ShutDown
This shutdown will not impact the Cydia Installer app and you can continue Cydia for installation of Jailbreak Tweaks as you did before. Further explaining, purchases of Tweaks can be done by third-party repositories like Packix, Chariz, and Dynastic Repo, among several others. The best way to install Tweaks at the moment is TaigOne.

Apple stops signing iOS 12.0.1
