iOS 11 - 11.4 Jailbreak released using UnC0ver

When it comes to jailbreaking iOS 11 we had no other options except using Electra jailbreak tool . But as of this week many things have changed. Earlier today Electra team member Pwn20wnd announced the release of a semi-untethered jailbreak tool called UnC0ver.

Calling it  “the most advanced jailbreak tool.” Moreover, enc0ver is cited as being a joint effort between Pwn20wnd and hacker Sam Bingner, with the UI having been designed by Dennis Bednarz and Samg_is_a_Ninja.

Right out of the box, unc0ver supports iOS 11.0-11.4 beta 3, which means it supports more firmware versions than Electra. But what really sets it apart is the distinctive jailbreak app, shown above, which incorporates a bevy of handy jailbreak-centric features.
