Currently, all available jailbreak tools support versions of the system prior to iOS 12.1.2. However, tfp0 exploit for iOS 12.2 was discovered not so long ago that gave rise to the hope of creating a jailbreak for this version.
For most users, a full jailbreak is not only root access to the device’s file system, but also a functioning tweak manager for installing various extensions. Not surprisingly, well-known hackers, like Pwn20wnd, immediately began working on Cydia compatibility with iOS 12.2.
Today, the hacker Pwn20wnd wrote that both Cydia and Cydia Substrate work in iOS 12.2:
Not surprisingly, iOS 12.2 is not much different from 12.1.2, not counting several security patches. Nevertheless, the news is good, because Saurik is not going to work on Cydia Substrate updates in the future, and the tool will not need to be updated under iOS 12.2.
Recently, a hacker iBSparkes posted an application teaser Cydia in the first beta version of iOS 13 but in this case nothing can be said about compatibility exactly.
There are no guarantees that iOS 12.2 jailbreak will be released soon, but this does not prevent us from sticking to the following rules:
– If you already have a jailbreak installed and it suits you, do nothing.
– If you have iOS 12.1.3-12.2, avoid updates.
– If you have iOS 12.3 and newer, if possible, roll back to the previous version of the system.
It is worth noting that Cydia Substrate still does not support A12 (X) devices: iPhone XR, XS and XS Max. The jailbreak tool unc0ver only partially supports these devices, but this will change in the future, as is the case with the jailbreak Chimera.
