VIDEO: Apple iOS 12 Beta 1 jailbreak occurs on iPhone X

There happened to be few noises going on in the Apple (AAPL) iOS jailbreak communities. In just a week after the first beta of iOS 12 was made available, it has been jailbroken on an iPhone X. No other hardware is required and it takes less than a minute for the process to install the jailbreak iOS app store Cydia.

The iOS 12 jailbreak on an iPhone X was first demonstrated by Tencent Keen Security Lab Company’s security researcher Liang Chen. Also, without a PC or other additional hardware, KeenLab has built iOS 12 first-beta jailbreaking app in less than a week. The iOS 12 is expected to be released to the public this fall.

Chen posted a video on his Twitter account featuring jailbreak of an iPhone X that runs iOS 12 beta one. The video showed proof that the phone runs iOS 12 beta one version, followed by exploitation of the device using the KeenLab jailbreak app that installs Cydia, and finally shows the jailbroken device in working condition.

As usual, KeenLab won’t be releasing the jailbreak app publicly and it will be used only for their internal testing purposes. Despite Apple’s efforts to prevent the jailbreak community, this video will serve as a proof that the Cupertino giant’s firmware can still be jailbroken.

Apple has been bringing out new features in the latest version of the standard OS. This has been cited as the reason behind the death of jailbreak, which usually replaces the software restriction imposed by Apple with a custom kernel.

Meanwhile, Grayshift, which supplied a device to Indiana State Police for unlocking iPhone in a case, has a workaround for Apple’s upcoming USB Restricted Mode security feature, which closed the loophole that police gains access the date through iPhone’s Lightning port. But it is unclear how Grayshift managed to overthrow the USB lockdown.
