Beware of Tw3lve Jailbreak for iOS 12, blatant copy of UnC0ver

Although jailbreak community offer good things to help Apple users for better experience of iOS devices, but some people use it in a wrong way. Earlier today a shady jailbreak tool for iOS 12 called "Tw3lve" ominously materialized from thin air on /r/jailbreak over the weekend, and the post was quickly removed by board moderation after it was discovered to be a blatant copy of Pwn20wnd’s open-source unc0ver jailbreak tool with a custom GUI behaving as smoke and mirrors to the general public.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Tw3lve was closed-source (otherwise it would have revealed the tool’s true nature upon release), but it didn’t take long for Pwn20wnd and other prominent jailbreak developers to reverse-engineer the disgraced jailbreak tool and learn that it was a copy and paste of an existing tool with a different face. It has since been open-sourced.

Pwn20wnd on Twitter:

Pwn20wnd saying that the developer cloned UnC0ver jailbreak tool with a difference GUI only. But the rest is 100% identical to UnC0ver.

The unc0ver jailbreak tool was updated just this weekend to version 3.0.0 beta 49 with fixes for all known bugs to date. Pwn20wnd says the tool will come out of beta after a full A12(X) jailbreak is achieved. As usual, you can download unc0ver from Pwn20wnd’s GitHub repository.
