Big Unc0ver JAILBREAK NEWS / UPDATES For Substitute (Including A12 Devices)
Pwn20wnd surprises again with his continued dedication towards including A12 and A12X devices (iPhone XS, XS Max, XR, and the latest iPad Pro) into the supported Unc0ver Jailbreak devices list. For a few good months, Pwn20wnd has been working on an alternative to Cydia Substrate (former Mobile #Substrate) by Saurik, after Saurik (Jay Freeman) has stated publicly that he's no longer interested in updating Cydia Substrate for A12 devices and he could not ensure continued support for the Substrate development. Unfortunately, Cydia Substrate is closed-source, unlike Cydia, so it cannot be updated and kept up to date by the community. A solution was needed for A12 devices, otherwise, these devices would never support tweaks. 

The Chimera Jailbreak Team (basically Electra Team lead by Coolstar) have developed a modernized version of Substitute, a publicly available Cydia Substrate alternative that was in dire need of updates as it wasn't very well known and used until iOS 11. They've updated and improved it and released Chimera Jailbreak for A12 devices on #iOS 12.0 to 12.1.2, however, 12.1.3 up to 12.2 aren't supported to this date on A12 because of PAC. The Electra / Chimera Team did not publish their changes to the Substitute, so we're running again into the closed-source limitation that brought us here in the first place. 

For that, Pwn20wnd started working on his own solution for #Unc0ver #Jailbreak, so that A12 people don't need to switch gears to Chimera in order to jailbreak their devices, a move that seems to be appreciated in the community, as Unc0ver Jailbreak is a well-established, reliable tool.
