How to install Unc0ver jailbreak for iOS 11 – iOS 11.4 beta 3
Step 2: Connect your iPhone, iPad or iPod to your computer with a Lightning cable to download the Unc0ver IPA file to your device. Run Cydia Impactor on your computer. It will detect your device.
Step 3: Drag the Unc0ver IPA file into the program window. Enter your Apple ID and password and wait while the program downloads the file to your device. If you see the error message “provision.cpp: 168”, use our article on how to fix the error “provision.cpp: 168” in Cydia Impactor.
Step 4: Begin to trust the developer profile. When the Unc0ver tool file is uploaded to the device, open the Settings application and go to Settings> General> Profiles and Device Management. Select a developer profile and click Trust. This step is not needed if you used an Apple developer account.
Step 5: Turn on Airplane Mode. It is recommended to enable Airplane Mode before starting the installation of the Unc0ver jailbreak. Open a control point and click on the icon with the plane.
Step 6: Disable Siri by going to Settings > Siri and Search and click on the radio buttons next to Listen “Hi, Siri”, Calling Siri with the “Home” button and Siri with a screen lock.
Step 7: Reboot the device. Turning on Airplane mode and turning off Siri, restart the device. After that, make sure that Airplane mode is still disabled, and Wi-Fi is turned off.
Step 8: Run the jailbreak. Open the Unc0ver application from the home screen, and then tap the blue Jailbreak button.
The jailbreak installation process will begin, and the device will do the re-spring.
Step 9: Wait for the installation to complete. Congratulations, you installed a jailbreak on your device! The Cydia application icon will appear on the home screen, through which you can install tweaks.
If the icon does not appear, reboot the device and launch the Unc0ver application again. After successful installation of the jailbreak, turn off Airplane Mode and turn on Siri.
About semi-tied jailbreak
Unc0ver is a semi-tethered jailbreak, like an Electra jailbreak, which means it will cease to act after the device is rebooted. You can not use tweaks, and the application Cydia will not run. To activate the jailbreak again, simply launch the Unc0ver application and click the “Jailbreak” button.
Unc0ver expiration date
If you downloaded the Unc0ver IPA file to your device using your regular Apple ID, the tool’s application will no longer work after 7 days, so you will have to reinstall it through Cydia Impactor to extend the action for another 7 days.
However, please note that you only need the jailbreak application when you need to activate it after restarting the device. Even if the time expires, the jailbreak itself will continue to operate.
