In today's video, we're discussing the latest iOS 12.x / iOS 11.4.x #Jailbreak news and updates, as well as the release of Unc0ver v2.1.1 and Tihmstar's new kernel, exploit with tfp0 and some details about it. We're also discussing the best versions to be on for Jailbreak purposes and which versions should be avoided.
Tihmstar has recently posted on Twitter that he's got tfp0 (the kernel task port) on #iOS 11.4.1 / 11.4. This is a pretty good achievement for the Jailbreak community especially since many people have refrained from updating to iOS 12.x because they wanted to Jailbreak on 11.4.1. A few days ago, however, @tihmstar has announced that he won't be able to release his exploit for the moment because it would interfere with other people's projects. However, he advised people to stay on iOS 11 because something is coming soon.
According to tihmstar, this exploit allowed him to port the KPP bypass from iOS 10 on iOS 11.x up to iOS 11.4.1. A jailbreak on top of this would likely be a KPP (Kernel Patch Protection)-bypass Jailbreak like Yalu was for iOS 10.2. After iOS 11 came out, KPP bypass fell out of favor for the KPPless approach.
For the iOS 12 folk, security researchers Min Spark Zheng and Xiaolong Bai seem to have something up their sleeve. Recently Min has posted a picture on his Twitter account in which he shows not only the fact that he got the kernel task port (#tfp0) on iOS 12.1.2 which is currently the latest version, but he also got root. In the picture he clearly shows how he's initially mobile (501) unprivileged, then the exploit escalates his privileges to root (0). This is shown by the getuid command. Although this is not the end game, it's a very big step forward for the Jailbreak community. It is, however, recommended that you avoid iOS 12.1.3 and newer once they are out.
