The rootlessJB has officially released its tool to jailbreak iOS 12 to iOS 12.1.2 versions on iPhone/iPad devices. Although the tool is SSH-based, it would not prevent others that are running on iOS 12 from attempting to jailbreak.
Use rootlessJB tool to jailbreak iOS 12 to iOS 12.1.2
Unlike other jailbreak tools, rootlessJB jailbreak for iOS devices is more tedious and challenging. Since it does not function like a standard jailbreak, the process of installing Cydia isn’t also straightforward. Additionally, it does not come with any root access so you cannot get your hands on many modifications that could be done with a normal jailbreak.
However, if you really want to use rootlessJB to jailbreak your iPhone/iPad running iOS 12 to iOS 12.1.2 firmware, simply follow these steps to do so.
At the time of writing, rootlessJB only works with iPhone 6s, 6s+, 7, 7+, SE, 8, 8+ and iPhone X.
It’s a pity when it does not work for iOS devices that are powered by A12 Bionic chip like the 2018 iPad Pro, iPhone XS/ XS Max iPhone, or XR. We’ll update when the jailbreak is available for those. rootlessJB can also jailbreak other iPads without powering A12 Bionic chip.
Follow these steps below to jailbreak iOS 12– iOS 12.1.2 versions:
Step 1: First, you need to download rootlessJB by visiting ignition.fun on your iPhone/iPad running iOS 12 to iOS 12.1.2. You can use the search function to search for the tool. Next, tap on “Get” and wait for the tool to download and install on your phone.
Step 2: You need to trust Certificate by heading to Settings –> General –> Device Management. Tap on the name of the developer and trust the certificate. Without doing this, you will not be able to proceed with the jailbreak.
Step 3: It’s time to use rootlessJB to jailbreak iOS 12 to 12.1.2. To do this, enable the Airplane mode on your iPhone, open rootlessJB app and make sure to toggle on “Tweaks.” After that, simply tap on Jailbreak and wait for the process to be completed.
Once you have done all steps, your iPhone/iPad will automatically respring. In case it shows up an Apple logo (), it means the process wasn’t successful. You need to try it again if that happens.
There is no guarantee if rootlessJB can indicate the revival of the iOS jailbreak community, but it’s still an exciting tool to try.
