Hot topic these days, everywhere, the new Unc0ver Jailbreak.
As we receive many inquiries about this topic, we clarify that unlocking by IMEI is not the same as jailbreaking.
Both procedures are 100% legal according to the DMCA (Digital Millenium Copyright Act), but there are certain aspects to be taken into account.
As we have been requested our professional opinion on this, we’ll share it with all of you!
What does Jailbreak mean and what does it do?
It’s a method to bypass Apple’s restrictions regarding certain apps and features. With this method you get access to applications and options which are not regularly available on iOS.
As good as it might sound, it’s important to know the donwsides of the jailbreakm before installing it.
Description of the new Unc0ver jailbreak
This jailbreak is so impressive as it manages to bypass Apple’s protocols in a way never seen before.
The most striking achievement of the hackers who did it is the development on a 0day exploit.
What does that mean? It’s the vulnerable part of the iOS, which has no protection, update nor patch to correct this vulnerability, through which another software can modify the behavior of your iOS.
Is it worthy using this Jailbreak?
Nowadays, most of the apps are both available for Android and iOS, therefore jailbreaking is not so useful as it used to be.
Installing Android apps on an iOS doesn’t run the APK format specific to Android (executable files which allow the installation of apps), and as a consequence, getting a malware on our device it’s easier.
This means that there are negative consequences regarding the safety of all your files stored on your iPhone, and the extent of them is not fully known.
Can I unlock my iPhone with this new Jailbreak?
At this time, Unc0ver Jailbreak does not include the network lock bypass.
Shall I do it if it becomes available? The most recommended network unlock is the IMEI one, such as the one doctorSIM provides.
Using the network unlock by IMEI, as it doesn’t interfere with the software nor the hardware of your device, does not void the warranty.
It’s easy and quick, and it doesn’t affect the security of the data stored on your phone, and there is no risk in losing any data nor personal information, as it might happen with the Jailbreak.
