To install this Jailbreak you should have A12/A13 device running on a supported iOS firmware “Check the list for all supported devices and iOS firmware“:-
iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs, Max iPhone Xr, iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11 Pro Max.

How to Jailbreak:
As I have mentioned before, Unc0ver Jailbreak is semi-tethered so you don’t mainly need a computer to install it, but you still need a Jailbreaking app which is Unc0ver in this case. And fortunately, you can install this app directly from your iPhone or by using computer.
1. Installing Unc0ver app:
Without a Computer:
To get this app without a computer, you should use one of the online singing services such as “Ignition“, “AppCake“, “Tweakbox“, all of these services are easy to use, but, for this tutorial I’ll be using “AppCake” as its certificate works with no problems. Also keep in mind that after installing Unc0ver app, you should use a Jailbreak tweak called “ReProvision“, which will help you to resign the app certificate every week so that it won’t get revoked!
To install Unc0ver app through AppCake with no computer:
- Install “AppCake” by heading to their Official website and then clicking on “Install AppCake“.
- After installing “AppCake” you will need to trust its certificate by going to “Settings, General, Device Management, Click on the certificate name, Then Trust it“,
- Once you lunch “AppCake”, you will be transferred to Safari and asked to install its profile, click on “Download”, the exit out of Safari, and go to “Settings, Profile Downloaded“, a screen will pop up, click on “Install”, then enter your PassCode, and finally click on install.
- Lunch “AppCake”, and head to “Tweaked” from the down bar, here you should see Unc0ver Jailbreak at the top, click on “Get, then Install” and Unc0ver App will start downloading in your Home Screen.
- After it finishes Downloading and Installing, you will have Unc0ver Jailbreak App icon in your home screen, and remember that before you open the app you should trust its certificate by going to “Settings, General, Device Management, Click on the certificate name, Then Trust it“
Apple always tries to prevent Jailbreaking, as Jailbreaking basically is exploiting iOS system. And In order to prevent the Jailbreak, they need to cut all sources from where the Jailbreaking app can be installed. Consequently, the up mentioned singing services get constantly revoked, and in case of revoking these services you need to SideLoad the IPA to your iDeviec creating a free developer certificate that lasts for 7 days. Of course, you can use “ReProvision” tweak so that you extend the certificate to last longer.
To side-load Unc0ver Jailbreak using Cydia Impactor:
- Download Unc0ver Jailbreak IPA form the official Unc0ver Site.
- Download Cydia Impactor for your OS, “it supports MacOS, Windows, Linux“, this is the tool that we’re going to use to SideLoad Unc0ver.
- Extract Cydia Impactor, lunch it, and Connect your iPhone to the Computer.*
- Drag the Unc0ver IPA file to Cydia Impactor.
- Enter your Apple ID and password**, it’s totally safe.
- wait till Cydia Impactor displays “Completed“.
- Trust the certificate by going to “Settings, General, Device Management, “YourAppleIDName”, trust it“.
*If you have connectivity issues, make sure to download iTunes to get the USB drivers.
**You may have to generate a password by going to AppleID, Security section, Generate Password.
2. To Jailbreak:-
- Turn off “FindMyiPhone” service from iCloud settings.
- Disable Passcode.
- Delete the old OTA update file*
- lunch Unc0ver Jailbreak App, hit “Jailbreak” button**
- After a successful Jailbreak you will get the “Cydia” icon in your home screen.
*You don’t need to do this step anymore, as the Jailbreak App now deletes the OTA files automatically.
**This process may take up to five tries, so if your iDevice restarted, redo this step tail it gives you “Jailbroken” screen.
