If you are part of the jailbreak community, we have some great news for you! Jake James, the web, iOS and tweak developer (@Jakeshacks) has finally put an end to our waiting and released a jailbreak tool with the name of RootlessJB 3.0. Limited devices support this jailbreak, and only developers can use it.
James announced over the weekend via Twitter that the RootlessJB 3.0 will soon be released. The tool offers initial support for A11, A10, and A9 devices that run iOS 12.0 to iOS 12.1.2.
If you take a look at what James twitted, no code and tweaks injections are included in his new tool yet. Aside from that, via dropbear, it spawns SHH.
As it does not offer package manager installation in the form of Sileo or Cydia, you should keep in mind that this is not a standard jailbreak that the public domain can take advantage of especially because it requires you to use SSH and dropbear to install the program.
Are A12 devices left out?
James said that he is also working on the A12 support that jailbreakers had asked for and that soon enough their wishes will come true. This will be followed by support for A8 and A7 devices once there is an exploit.
How is RootlessJB3.0 doing at the moment
Since RootlessJB 3.0 was releases, James has tweeted a lot of updates. The recent one was announced not too much time ago by James who provided a video that shows people what the RootlessJB 3.0 is capable of. The footage comes from Sammy Guichelaar (@SammyGuichelaar), and it practically proves how successful James’ tool is. If you want to try it yourself, you can do so, but you should still keep in mind that it is not in its final form yet.
