The new iPhone XS Max iOS 12 jailbreak tool by Luca Todesco

Two weeks ago, it has been reported that Pangu jailbreak team successfully jailbreak the iPhone XS running on iOS 12. In the present, Italian developer and renowned jailbreaker, known for his iOS 10-centric Yalu jailbreak tool, Luca Todesco, has confirmed via Twitter that he has successfully jailbroken his iPhone XS Max hardware running on iOS 12.

Last October 8, 2018, Todesco posted this tweet:

‘Since I’m finally done hacking the Xs Max I started using it as my daily driver and I gotta say it’s a damn fine piece of hardware’

Luca Todesco has now a major contribution in the jailbreak community as he was responsible for the Yalu and Yalu102 jailbreaks as well. The release of his iOS 12 jailbreak tool is entirely up for debate.

Since the Italian developer brags about the iPhone XS Max as being a “fine piece of hardware”, one Twitter user who goes by the name Ben Vinci asked Todesco if he has experienced any issues with his phone. The main complaints about iPhone XS Max coming from users are:

  • It won’t charge if plugged into a wall charger when in standby.
  • When trying to charge, the device’s screen will freeze for several minutes and will have to be reset.
  • LTE connectivity and signal problems.

Forbes’ Gordon Kelly reports:

‘Speaking to me ahead of publishing, Lewis Hilsenteger – aka Unbox Therapy – told me of “hundreds” of posts detailing a phenomenon whereby the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max will not charge if they are plugged into a wall charger when in standby. Moreover, some of the phones become frozen and have to be reset.’

But Todesco replied that his device just works fine and that he did not experience any charging and connectivity issues so far.

Since the charging and reception issues are the most common, an article report says that Apple will be releasing a fix in the next few weeks, but until then owners will just have to figure out a way to charge their iPhone XS and XS Max.
