Great! You want to know about...

It's safe to assume that if you're reading this, you're a jailbreak fanatic who wants to jailbreak his or her iPhone 12. As a result, you'll be relieved to learn that the iPhone 12 can be jailbroken.

However, jailbreaking for iPhone 12 does not support the most recent iOS versions, including iOS 14.5 and iOS 14.5.1. This is because Apple has since patched the exploit that was utilized to create jailbreak. Only iOS 14.3 and upgrades issued prior to it are supported.

Read on as this full guide will show you what you'll get from a jailbroken iPhone and how to jailbreak iPhone 12 using unc0ver.

Part 1 Why You May Want to Jailbreak iPhone 12?

Jailbreaking is the process of altering the iPhone (or iPad) software to circumvent Apple's constraints and limitations. The main restriction is that software can only be downloaded through the App Store. You can install software from a rival to the App Store, as well as manually using files downloaded from the internet, on a jailbroken phone.

People who desire to be free of the constraints they claim Apple has imposed on us all –  from the default apps that come with iOS to the fact that the operating system's core structure cannot be customized by individual programmers, third-party developers, or even consumers themselves. These unsatisfied individuals are the jailbreakers.

The following are five compelling reasons to jailbreak your iPhone:

  • It's your phone, first and foremost! You ought to be able to do whatever you want with it.
  • Your apps can be downloaded from anywhere, not only from the App Store.
  • You can use alternatives to iOS's default apps, many of which offer more features.
  • Rather than being restricted to the significantly fewer options available in iOS, you may customize the look and feel of your phone to fit your personality.
  • You can tether your Mac to your iPhone to avoid using your network's Mobile Hotspot, which is sometimes restricted and/or pricey.

Although it is reasonably easy to accomplish and legal (in most countries), jailbreaking your iPhone is frowned upon by Apple and is likely to void your warranty.

Part 2 Introducing unc0ver

unc0ver is a jailbreaking tool, which will help you jailbreak your iPhone so that you can do whatever you want with your iOS device. unc0ver unlocks the actual power of your iDevice by allowing you to modify what you want and function within your own boundaries. unc0ver jailbreak is a semi-untethered jailbreak method, which means that if your device reboots or you switch it off and back on, your jailbreak will be lost, and you will have to jailbreak the device again.

The software creators have put a lot of time and effort into creating the jailbreak app, making sure it doesn't cause you any difficulties and is free of spyware and viruses. It works with all devices running iOS 11, iOS 12, iOS 13 or higher.

Part 3 How to Jailbreak iPhone 12 Using unc0ver Without a Computer?

The good news is that you can use unc0ver to jailbreak your iPhone 12 without utilizing a computer. This works from iOS 11 to iOS 14.2, but it won't work if you're on a version of iOS newer than 14.3 right now.

Without a computer, follow these step-by-step instructions to jailbreak iPhone 12 with unc0ver:

  • 1 To get started, you'll need to download the TuTuBox app. Follow these steps if you don't know how to download the app:
  • (1) Go to tutubox.io/install.html on a browser. (There are a few pop-up adverts and redirects on the site; make sure you click the download file until you see the install option.) "Signed or No Revoke" is a file that you can download.

    (2) After clicking install, TuTuBox begins downloading and installing in your app drawer. On the iPhone home screen, you can verify if the app is loading and install it.

    (3) Now when you try to open the app, you'll see a message saying "Untrusted Enterprise Developer". Open iPhone Settings > General > Profiles & Device Management to fix the issue warning. Look for the Developer, and you'll notice that the app is listed as Unverified.

  • 4 On some devices, the app's homepage may say "0/30 already jailbroken", while on others, it may say "9/30 already jailbroken". As a result, you'll have to keep clicking "Jailbreak" until it works.
  • 5 When you click "Jailbreak", the screen displays "Jailbreaking" and counts down from 0/30 to 20/30. When it reaches 20/30, it displays "Ready to Jailbreak" and "Jailbreak Completed". You should press the Ok button, which will reboot your iPhone 12. When it turns on again, enter your passcode and launch the unc0ver program, then click "Jailbreak", which will restart the jailbreak process until a window appears that says "Substitute - Request for Permission". When you click "Always Allow", it will display "Jailbreak Completed", and when you click Ok, your iPhone 12 will reboot.
  • 6 After the reboot, enter your iPhone 12 device passcode. When you open your iPhone 12, you'll notice a new app called Cydia has already been installed.
