Apple recently released iOS 12 on last Monday, so it should not come off as much of an amaze that there is not a public jailbreak solution available for download Cydia on it at this time.
But that has not stopped Cydia creator Saurik from releasing an update for the direct Cydia download app Cydia Impactor side-loading tool with official iOS 12 support. As of this writing, the latest version of the utility is v9.46.
Cydia Impactor is commonly used by direct online semi-untethered jailbreak solutions to load the app that hacks your handset. Min’s Online CydiaPro jailbreak and Luca Todesco’s Yalu jailbreak are just two examples of tools that use Cydia Impactor, but they’re not the only ones.
Freeman’s rapid response to the iOS 12 release raises a few eyebrows, especially considering his absence throughout the iOS 11 jailbreak scene. One can only speculate that he wants his platform readily available in case any jailbreak tool developers are ready to work on a new jailbreak.
Existing direct online Cydia Impactor users will see the prompt above about updating immediately after launching the application on their computers. If for some reasons you do not, or you have not download Cydia Impactor utility yet, then you can download the latest version from Saurik’s website.
Just to reiterate, there is no jailbreak available for 12 for now. However, researchers with Ali Security recently demoed what believed to be the first video evidence of an iOS 12 jailbreak thus far, indicating that it is indeed possible to jailbreak Apple’s latest firmware.
