How to Jailbreak iPhone 12

Different types of methods are available for jailbreak your iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, or iPhone 12 Pro max and you can select your preferred method of those methods. Let us see what those methods are.

  1. Tethered Jailbreak

In this method you are not allowed to restart your iPhone. Everytime you turn off your iPhone 12, the jailbreak will be gone. 

Ex:  redsn0w Jailbreak

  • However, the redsn0w jailbreak for iPhone 12 is not available now. 
  1. Untethered Jailbreak

This is the opposite part of the Tethered method. You can restart or turn off your iPhone 12 every time you want without impacting jailbreak. Jailbreak will not be gone after restarting.  

Ex: Pangu Jailbreak

  • Despite that Pangu iPhone 12 Jailbreak is not available now. 
  1. Semi-tethered Jailbreak

This method is a combination of the above methods. If you restart your iPhone 12 you will be able to use it normally like making phone calls and sending text messages. But jailbroken tweaks won’t work until you run Jailbreak. On the other hand, it needs to get PC support to run the Jailbreak tool. 

Ex: brand-new checkra1n Jailbreak

  • Although checkra1n is supported for iOS 14 versions, it does not support iPhone 12 models. 
  1. Semi-untethered Jailbreak

This method is the same as the semi-tethered method. The only difference is, it doesn’t need the PC support to move to the jailbroken state. 

Ex; unc0ver Jailbreak

  • Unc0ver Jailbreak already supports iPhone 12.

In order to jailbreak your iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPhone 12 Pro max, you should use jailbreak software. So, let’s discuss some of the most popular tools. Be mindful that all tools are not compatible with iPhone 12 Jailbreak.

PanguUntethered
OdysseySemi-Untethered

As you can see Jailbreak methods vary for each of these tools. 

Most importantly, you must check for the iOS version compatibility before choosing an iPhone 12 Jailbreak method/software as well. Because you cannot jailbreak all iOS versions.

How to Jailbreak iPhone 12 using Unc0ver

Things to do before jailbreaking iPhone 12 with uncover

There are some things you must do before starting the iPhone 12 unc0ver Jailbreak. If you don’t do those things, you may not be able to jailbreak your iPhone 12 or it may be broken. Let us discuss what they are. 

  1. If you are running rootless jailbreak on your iPhone 12, you need to clean it. 

You may already know that those jailbreaks are completely different. They work in a completely different way. So, if you keep both of them they will collide. When you try to unc0ver and run it for the first time, by default, unc0ver will try to eliminate rootless jailbreak. Because, otherwise they would conflict. So, it’s better to clean them first. 

  1. If you have OTA updates, you need to delete them. 

In your iPhone 12 device models, if there is an update that has been downloaded and waiting to be installed, remove it. Go to Settings → Storage. If you can see there is an update click on it and delete it. Most importantly, you need to do it right before running unc0ver because you need to make sure it doesn’t download again.

You won’t be able to jailbreak your iPhone 12 with unc0ver if you have already upgraded your iPhone and your iOS version is within iOS 14.4 – iOS 14.6. Also, you are not capable of downgrading your iPhone for unc0ver Jailbreak as well. Apple doesn’t allow downgrading the iOS version for jailbreak.

Most importantly, you will be stuck on the older iOS version if you jailbreak your iPhone 12. That is, you will no longer be able to get official iOS updates from Apple. 

  1. Void your iPhone 12 warranty
  1. Battery issues

You will face battery life issues due to tweaks. Because your iPhone 12 device will heat up through some tweaks and it will drain your battery life.

  1. Can infect virus

Sometimes when you are installing pirate apps from pirate sources, those resources can be put in some malwares. So, you must be very careful when installing tweaks because malware is harmful for your device.

Let’s see some iOS malware that can infect your iPhone 12, iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12 Pro, or iPhone 12 Pro max. 

  • AdThief/Spad

Steals the advertisement modules used by other installed apps to display their own advertisements.

  • Unflod

  • Xsser mRAT

It is a mobile Remote Administrative Tool (RAT) can be installed via a rogue repository on Cydia.

  • AppBuyer

iPhone 12 Jailbreak Errors

Once you jailbreak your iPhone 12, sometimes you will have to face some errors like your springboard is crashing, and your jailbreak keeps crashing and doesn’t work. 

The immediate reason for these errors may be carelessly installed tweaks. That is, once users find the list of tweaks they tend to install all the tweaks at once. When you try to install 30 tweaks at once, it will cause problems. You need to install one tweak at once. Take your time and install tweaks freely. 

And also there may be some tweaks that are not compatible with each other or not compatible with the version. As a result of conflicting tweaks with one another, your springboard will be crashing. 

  1. Springboard keeps crashing

So, as a solution to springboard crashing, go to your package manager and delete recently installed tweaks. When it comes to delete tweaks also do the same as installing. Delete one at a time! Delete one, go to springboard and come back and delete another. 

  1. Jailbreak keeps crashing

Another error that can occur is, jailbreak cannot be used. It keeps crashing. In order to solve this problem, what you can do is, restore your root file system and start over.
