The jailbreak community is brimming with constant updates regarding the development of jailbreak for iOS 12/12+. Recently jailbreak for iOS 12.1 on iPhone XS Max was achieved by Keen Labs. However, being a security research company it is highly unlikely that they will release the jailbreak in public. Also, UnC0ver Jailbreak launched a V 2.0.0 for iOS 11.4/11.4.1 with support for Cydia substrate. Each and every day new exploits are coming up and the time is not far away when a working jailbreak tool will be released for iOS 12/12+ for the general jailbreak community.
Each and every exploit brings in a new ray of hope to the jailbreak enthusiasts who are eagerly waiting for iOS 12 jailbreak. Recently, Apple hacker, Linus Henze released a WebKit Regex exploit for iOS 12.1/12.1.1 which, according to Alibaba’s cyber team, has the potential to play a critical role in developing a working jailbreak tool for iOS 12/12+. Now, Reddit developer JohnLough has launched an application named as Cydia Explorer for iOS 12+ which enables iPhone/iPad users to browse Cydia repos on their iOS device.
What is Cydia Explorer? Can We Install Packages Through Cydia Explorer?
Cydia Explorer is a repo browser application for iOS 12. Users won’t be able to install packages through it, but, it is an intuitive way to keep iOS users, who are waiting for iOS 12 jailbreak to come up, to indulge in a little fun and be busy. Please note that the application is still under the status of ‘Work in Progress,’ however, the developer has ensured to release it pretty soon.
As of now, following functionalities are working in Cydia Explorer for iOS 12.
- Add Repos
- Save Repos
- Retrieve Repos on Startup
- Repo Selection
- Show Package Details
Will Cydia Explorer be available on the official App Store?
The end goal of the developer is to submit the application to the App Store. Chances are high that the App Store accepts the application as it is not breaking any guidelines as of now. Till then, let us wait and watch what the future has in store for Cydia Explorer. Stay tuned with us and we will let you know immediately as and when the developer releases the application.
