Unc0ver Jailbreak for iOS 14.5

Unc0ver v6.0.0 update is out a couple of days ago. It has added iOS 14 – iOS 14.3 jailbreak support. Also, Unc0ver jailbreak support for almost every iOS version of iOS 11 – iOS 11.4.1, iOS 12 – iOS 12.5.1 & iOS 13 – iOS 13.7 jailbreak on all devices. Unc0ver was the most user friendly semi-untethered Jailbreak tool.

Unfortunately, it does not support iOS 14.4, iOS 14 4.1, iOS 14.4.2 or iOS 14.5. Reason for that, Unc0ver latest version developed using @pattern_F’ s Stable kernel r/w technique based on the cicuta_virosa kernel LPE. @ModernPwner Anonymous developers released new cicuta_virosa kernel LPE for all devices.

However, iOS 14.4 has added many security patches to fix the vulnerabilities that existed on previous iOS versions. So, it can not use the same exploit to Unc0ver iOS 14.4 – iOS 14.5 jailbreak at the moment.

But the developer @ModernPwner mentioned a brand new technique to bypass PAC along with the iOS 14.5 exploit. According to the developer, still work is ongoing and it may publish with 14.5 exploit after Apple patch. So, it can be used to develop iOS 14.5 Unc0ver Jailbreak tool. On the other hand, Pwn20wnd normally updates the Unc0ver tool for every iOS version using many techniques. So, Unc0ver iOS 14.4 – iOS 14.5 is the next target. Sometimes it will release when the iOS 14.5 version comes out because iOS 14.5 is in beta stage. 

Until then, iOS 14.5 users can install Zylon as an unc0ver alternative. Zylon offers many jailbreak repo extractors, jailbreak apps, game apps, tweak apps and online Jailbreak apps.


Taurine (odyssey14) for iOS 14.5 Jailbreak

Taurine jailbreak developed by Coolstar & the Odyssey team. This is based on the cicuta_virosa exploit. Previously it was expected as Odyssey Jailbreak for iOS 14 versions. But as usual Coolstar changed the jailbreak name to Taurine jailbreak. Now, Taurine Jailbreak released to jailbreak iOS 14 to iOS 14.3 versions. It cannot jailbreak iOS 14.5 beta with Taurine jailbreak yet. Also, iOS 14.4, iOS 14.4.1 and iOS 14.4.2 versions are not compatible with Taurine jailbreak.

Normally, CoolStar has added all the iOS versions into the support list on each jailbreak tool previously. Electra tool support added all the iOS 11 versions as Electra for iOS 11 – iOS 11.4.1. Then Chimera tool support added all the iOS 12 versions as Chimera for iOS 12 – iOS 12.5.1. At last, Odyssey jailbreak tool support added all the iOS 13 versions as Odyssey for iOS 13 – iOS 13.7. So, when it realizes all this jailbreak support information of CoolStat’s, we can expect Taurine iOS 14.5 jailbreak support as well.

Get iOS 14.5 features with Jailbreak

  • Using Face ID on your Apple Watch to unlock your iPhone

iPhone unlock is the most discussed feature during this Global Pandemic period. Face ID is a great feature to unlock so far.
