We’re still here – all the people that waited for the iOS 12 jailbreak tool for months (we still do), but there’s no sign on it anywhere. However, this does not mean that the developers are not interested in it. Apple introduced us to the iOS 12 software and the A12 Bionic chip, so it’s much harder than before actually to jailbreak iPads or iPhones. One of the developers found and made the most out of an iOS 12.0.1 WebKit RCE bug that can be the basis of a new iOS 12.0.1 jailbreak somewhere in the future.
Is it really going to happen?
A Korean user called Ahn Ki Chan posted on Twitter that the developer named Kudima, also known as BigD got a WebKit RCE to exploit to the GitHub repository. This exploit works with 12.0.1, which means that there’s still a little hope that there will be an iOS 12.1.0 jailbreak. It also makes us understand that Apple patched the bug in the iOS 12.1, which was recently released and which came with brand new features and fixed issues – they finally solved Group FaceTime.
In the tweet, Chan said that Kudima submitted another Webkit RCE exploit to the repository and that he wrote the whole exploit together with a very detailed annotation, which can face iOS 12.0.1.
Kudima is very popular in the jailbreaking community. There’s another security researcher that’s quite known, that’s named Niklas B, who also praised Kudima, saying that the annotations and exploits are useful. In August, Kudima had submitted an annotated WebKit info leak exploit, that was meant for the iOS 11.4.1. The newest exploit given to us by the BigD is one step forward into the long journey that we have to deal with to get a released public iOS 12.0.1 jailbreak.
