Hacker iBSparkes achieves tfp0 2020 on A13 with iOS 13.3 – iOS 13.3.1 Beta Jailbreak

The jailbreak community has been on fire these past few months, with checkra1n delivering an un-patchable jailbreak experience for handsets ranging from the iPhone 5s to the iPhone X, and with unc0ver picking up support for iOS 12.4.1. But hey, why let the pwn20wndstuff stop there? In order to jailbreak, you have to use a suitable tool (checkra1n, unc0ver, Chimera, etc.)

All devices, iOS 12 — 12.2 and 12.4 Download Chimera 1.3.9
iOS 12 — 12.2 and 12.4
Install Chimera 1.3.8 (No PC)
iOS 12 – 12.2 and 12.4 via TweakBox
Download ChimeraTV 1.3.9
tvOS 12 — 12.2 and 12.4

Note: Only Nonce setter available on 12.1.2 – 12.3 and 12.4 on A12

Each one of them wield an exploit. For example, checkra1n manoeuvres checkm8 bootrom exploit, unc0ver (v3.3.7), Sock Port kernel exploit, and Chimera (v1.3.9), Sock Puppet 3 exploit.

Renowned hacker and iOS security researcher iBSparkes broke the silence this weekend after sharing a teaser of what appears to be successful tfp0 on a brand-new A13 device running iOS 13.3 – iOS 13.3.1 Beta. Yes indie folks, that’s both Apple’s latest hardware and software – pwn in one fell swoop. Not too shabby!

Developer Teases New tfp0 Bug To iOS 13.3 jailbreak A12 / A13 Devices On iOS 13.3 – iOS 13.3.1 Beta

iBSparkes wasn’t specific about what type of A13 device he achieve tfp0 on, but this shouldn’t matter as the iPhone 11, 11 Pro, and 11 Pro Max are each power by the same silicon, which means they should all be susceptible. Need to live with congested abilities of the raw OS if you have an iPhone XS/XS Max/XR/11/11 Pro/11 Pro max, iPad Pro 2018 11-inch/12.9-inch (Third-generation), iPad Mini (5th generation), or iPad Air (2019, 3rd generation).

TFP0 Kernel Exploit jailbreak

Developer Version IOS 13.3 / 13.2.3 / 13.0 JAILBREAK: 2020 TFP0 Kernel Exploit For IPhone XS / XR / 11 (A12 / A13)

Notably, a tfp0 proof of concept was recently demonstrate on an A12 device running iOS 13.3 as well. Web application security specialists mention that tfp0 is a kernel task port.

The success of jailbreak would depend on this implementation, as developers can write to the kernel memory of the platforms.

For those who don’t know, tfp0 is essentially a means of obtaining read and write rights in the kernel memory, which is something that Apple tries very hard to obfuscate. In doing so, jailbreaks can be produce, enabling system-wide customization since the operating system runs subordinate to the kernel.

It should be noted, however, that iBSparkes’ teaser only involves iOS 13.3 – iOS 13.3.1 Beta, and Apple is currently testing iOS 13.3.1. After testing, Todesco may not post more details about the tfp0 exploit. In addition, the jailbreak’s release date still looks far away, as the iOS 13 operating system is still in development and its builds remain unstable.

iOS 13.3 – iOS 13.3.1 Beta tfp0 exploit teased, hints at possible jailbreak on A12/A13 devices

With this in mind, Apple still has time to patch this vulnerability before iOS 13.3.1 is release. And it should be interesting to see whether this will be the case or not. A brand new tfp0 bug has been expos on Twitter via user @08Tc3wBB offering support for up to A13 devices running Apple’s latest iOS 13.3 operating system.

tfp0 exploit

we happened to notice a tweet that teased tfp0 exploit (more info about tfp0 patch here). What makes it alluring is the possibility of having it to jailbreak A12/A13 devices, for which no alternative options are available right now.

As for jailbreak ability, this is particularly good news as Apple stopped signing iOS 13.2.3 last week, thwarting downgrades from iOS 13.3.

If you’re already on iOS 13.3, then we’d suggest staying where you are to see if anything interesting comes out of this. If you’re on an earlier version of iOS, then you should avoid upgrading as history shows that older versions of iOS tend to be more susceptible to jailbreaking.

Expert Luca Todesco released a tfp0 exploit for iOS 13.3 jailbreak that opens up huge possibilities

Given iBSparkes’ reputation in the jailbreak community, we’re excited to see what this could turn into if released. If you want to upgrade to iOS 13.3.1 beta in the hope that a possible jailbreak will be launched, we recommend that you stay in your current iOS 12 – 12.1.2 settings. Do not update to the latest build as Apple has stopped signing iOS 12.3.

Although not certain about the current development stage of this project, Todesco has published some details on the progress in its iOS 13.3.1 jailbreak project. Then again, developing a jailbreak for an entirely new platform is an indescribable amount of work, and if anything did materialize from it, it would unquestionably take a lot of time.
