Build Status

unc0ver dark (EOL)

The most advanced jailbreak tool, with more freedom

Darth Vader Dancing


  • Will the jailbreak see an update to 12.4? -- No. unc0ver has remained closed source for a while now, and the project is now dead. Please use Diatrus' Sileo for unc0ver as an alternative from now on.
  • Where can I stay up to date on unc0ver dark? -- Join the unc0ver dark Discord
  • My Cydia is crashing? How do I fix this? -- Uninstall CyDown. It is not updated for the new fork of Cydia. Also, piracy is no fun. ;(
  • Jailbreak is failing first try? -- You need WiFi for initial jailbreak, and therefore cannot use Airplane Mode. This is due to licensing on Cydia Substrate.
  • How do I switch from another jailbreak? -- unc0ver dark automatically handles the switching process. So no need to worry about switching. No rootFS restore is required.
