    Post You Can Suddenly Jailbreak Your iPhone Again

    ... But not for long.

    Security researchers discovered over the weekend that Apple mistakenly unpatched a security vulnerability in iOS 12.4. What is now effectively a 100+ day exploit means that for the first time in years users can jailbreak their iPhones again—that is, those models running the A7 to A11 chipsets. If you wanted to jailbreak your iPhone XR/XS/XS Max or your 2019 iPad Mini/iPad Air then you can pretty much stop reading here, as those devices are all powered by A12 chips.

    As an Android user who insists on unlocked bootloaders and root access I am all for taking control of your technology, even if iOS isn't my specific area of expertise. This dude seems to know what he's doing, though:

    If you wanted to take the plunge yourself—and understand the risks—there's also this step-by-step guide on Lifehacker. If you were wondering why you'd even want to bother, here are some use-cases via the comments on iPhone in Canada:

    -Carbridge – for those with CarPlay, you get any app on your car screen. That means when I’m parked waiting for the ferry, I can watch movies. Note Netflix isn’t supported, but anything in the TV app works.
    -reddit no ads
    -YouTube tools (no ads)
    -Audio recorder – automatic recording of phone calls. Yes that’s legal in Canada. Why would I want that? If someone is telling me details I need to remember and I’m not able to write them down at that moment I don’t need to worry about it, I can just listen to the call again.
    Of course, if you didn't want to jailbreak and are just worried about your phone being vulnerable, hang tight for a few days. Apple will almost certainly release iOS 12.4.1 and re-patch the vulnerability.

    Kind of wish they'd held their peace until the first few patches for iOS 13 had rolled out...

    I used some online jailbreak method from this website - for my iPad mini. So could I Jailbreak it again with this method? Is it OK?
