In today's video, we have great news for those of you waiting on iOS 12.3.1, iOS 12.3, iOS 12.2, iOS 12.1.4 and iOS 12.3.1 for a Jailbreak. A very important component without which the jailbreak cannot be created has been achieved a few days ago by Proteas, a security researcher with interest in iOS internals. He has successfully achieved #tfp0 (Kernel Task Port) on iOS 12.3.1 and lower and used it to dump a part of the #iOS 12.3.1 Kernel memory to show the version string. This is quite a huge achievement, especially since he managed to get tfp0 on the latest signed iOS version.
Of course, he did not mention any release, and even if he plans to release it, he will very likely wait for Apple to patch it in iOS 12.4 first before releasing it because otherwise, it would be 0day. In the meantime, this goes to show that tfp0 can still be achieved as far as iOS 12.3.1 and it is pretty good news for those of you interested in iOS #Jailbreak. Tfp0 exploits are what we've been using for 3 years now to be able to develop iOS Jailbreaks for iOS 10 and newer. Such exploit can, indeed, provide arbitrary read/write to the kernel memory which is all we need to start creating a jailbreak.
Since many were confused by Proteas' post, I messaged him on Twitter and he confirmed it is, indeed, tfp0 that he achieved. Do not forget to subscribe to stay updated with the latest iOS Jailbreak news, tips, and tutorials.
