Samg_is_a_Ninja Teases Siri Shortcut for Jailbreaking and Installing Cydia on iOS 12


Siri Shortcuts became a major feature when iOS 12 debuted, but will this have any implications for the upcoming iOS 12 jailbreak from team unc0ver?


A Captivating new teaser video shared to /r/jailbreak by iOS developer Samg_is_a_Ninja demonstrated the official use of a Siri Shortcut for unofficial means: jailbreaking and installing Cydia.

Soon after Samg_is_a_Ninja speaks the words, “Hey Siri, Install Cydia,” the unc0ver app launches and begins jailbreaking the iOS 12 handset.


We can clearly distinguish a successful jailbreak after the tool cycles through all 38 exploration steps and resprings after completing its task. The complimentary Cydia demonstration afterward serves as another welcomed flex.


Although a public iOS 12 jailbreak with Cydia and Cydia Substrate support isn’t yet available, that’s expected to change in the foreseeable future. Hacker and unc0ver lead developer Pwn20wnd shared a progress update just this morning, adding that internal testing still needs to be completed before a public beta can be distributed.


If you’re on iOS 12.0-12.1.2 right now, then you’re advised to stay where you are; conversely, if you’re on iOS 12.1.3 or 12.1.4, then you’re are advised to downgrade to iOS 12.1.1 beta 3 immediately while you still can:
