Download and Install Cydia for iOS 12 & Higher
Waiting for iOS 12 Cydia download or availability of Cydia install on iOS 12.0.1? Let's get some facts straight.
Fully functional Cydia is only available for jailbroken devices. Which means you can't install or run Cydia on your iOS 12 or iOS 12.0.1 running iPhone or iPad, because iOS 12 jailbreak is not available for general public at the moment.
If you want to use Cydia with iOS 12 or iOS 12.0.1, you have to wait for iOS 12 jailbreak or iOS 12.0.1 jailbreak to arrive. You can use Cydia apps on your iOS 12 - iOS 12.0.1 devices, but you can't use Cydia tweaks such as NGXPlay. Because Cydia tweaks need a jailbroken device to work properly.
Even Cydia download is not available for iOS 12, you can install Cydia apps or jailbreak apps on your iOS 12 - iOS 12.0.1 devices. What you have to do is install a Cydia alternative which offers Cydia apps to work without jailbreak.
Do not forget that official Cydia support is not available for devices running iOS 11 or later versions. Even Electra jailbreak offers a patched version of Cydia. If your only concern is iOS 12 Cydia, you will have to wait for iOS 12 jailbreak release.
iOS 12 Jailbreak Approaches
iOS 12.1 - iOS 12 Safari Sandbox Escape by SecuriTeam
SecuriTeam disclosed a Safari Sandbox Escape for both iOS and macOS systems. This vulnerability is in CoreAnimation framework of Apple which is used in iOS and macOS.
This could lead to an untethered iOS 12 jailbreak or iOS 12.1 jailbreak with a jailbreak expert. However, more details are to be revealed on this disclosure. Until then, you can read more on iOS/macOS Safari Sandbox Escape via QuartzCore Heap Overflow documentation by SecuriTeam.
Pangu Team Jailbreak iOS 12 on iPhone XS
iPhone XS is in market for about a week and Pangu team was able to jailbreak it on the latest firmware iOS 12. Min Zheng from Alibaba security team tweeted this recently and mentioned that Pangu team has bypassed PAC mitigation on the new A12 chip. A12 chip is the latest hardware from Apple which was introduced to this year's iPhone lineup.
Pangu team is an experienced jailbreak team who released many jailbreak tools in the past. They have released untethered jailbreak tools for various iOS versions but stay quiet for some period. But it also seems that they have never left the game.
Will they release iOS 12 untethered jailbreak this time? And will this exploit able to jailbreak iOS 12.0.1? Keep in touch for more info.
Luca Todesco Jailbreaks iPhone XS Max
The creator of Yalu jailbreak, security researcher Luca Todesco was able to hack the iOS 12 final release. Security researchers play with beta builds and some able to crack those. Luca was probably able to crack beta 12 of iOS 12. As we knew, iOS 12 beta 12 became the iOS 12 GM without any under the hood updates and released as the public version later. Proving this fact, Luca stated that he was able to pwned the iOS 12 final even without changing a line of code.
Luca has admitted that he is able to jailbreak iOS 12 running iPhone XS Max. It's the same exploits he used for the iOS 12 jailbreak he mentioned in early tweets. He just wanted to confirm his iOS 12 jailbreak tool with iPhone XS Max hardware compatibility and the results have arrived.
Will Luca Todesco's iOS 12 jailbreak tool find the day of light and will it support for a iOS 12.0.1 jailbreak? Stay tuned.
Ian Beer will Focus on iOS 12 Exploits
Google Project Zero's Ian Beer says he will focus on iOS 12 exploits. He was the man behind almost all latest jailbreak tools. Because Electra and many other jailbreak teams build jailbreak tools for exploits revealed by Ian Beer.
He released iOS 11.4.1 exploits to the public, so that we can hope for an iOS 11.4.1 jailbreak soon. As he has already started to work on iOS 12, iOS 12 jailbreak will not be a fantasy anymore.
iOS 12 Jailbreak for A10 and A11 Devices Achieved
A known tweak developer Umang Raghuvanshi has claimed that he is in the possession of iOS 12 exploits which could lead to iOS 12.x jailbreak. He has confirmed these exploits work on A10 and A11 chip running devices. He is waiting to get his hands on the latest A12 chip powered devices which are iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR.
He stated that the exploits he discovered are available in latest iOS 12.1 beta versions. In case those exploits survived in the production line until the iOS 12.1 public release, we would be able to see an iOS 12.1 jailbreak using the same vulnerabilities.
These exploits’ availability in iOS 12.1 beta means they have survived iOS 12.0.1 release. If so, jailbreak iOS 12.0.1 will not be farther.
If Umang is successful at jailbreaking iOS 12 and iOS 12.0.1, he will release a jailbreak tool and move on to iOS 12.1 jailbreak. Fingers crossed with the A12 Bionic chip support for his jailbreak but we could find its availability soon. Wait for more details.
iOS 12 Kernel Memory Read and Write Privilege Achieved
This is the news that shocked Apple when they were getting ready to release iOS 12. Group of security researchers discovered a bug, which could exploits to achieve iOS 12 kernel memory read and write privileges. And the best thing is this could lead to an iOS 12 untethered jailbreak tool. Security researcher Simone Ferrini tweeted the news with a video proof.
Security researchers @Simone_Ferrini, @jndok and @f_roncari is the team behind the scenes to achieve this. This exploit was presented in iOS 12 beta 12 and we hope it wasn't fixed in iOS 12 public release.
CoolStar Reserved a Bug for iOS 12 Electra Jailbreak
CoolStar, the creator of Electra jailbreak released iOS 11.3 - iOS 11.3.1 jailbreak a few months back. When developing this jailbreak, he has found another critical bug and he is going to reserve it to develop iOS 12 jailbreak.
It's uncertain if that bug will be saved till the iOS 12 public release. But, as Electra jailbreak for iOS 11.2 - iOS 11.3.1 is based on a different bug, it's ok to save the bug for iOS 12 so that they can release an iOS 12 jailbreak as soon as iOS 12 arrives. However, if the bug was patched before the public release, they could use it to improve the iOS 11.3.1 jailbreak. No matter what, it's a win-win situation for everyone except Apple.
Keen Lab Jailbreaks iOS 12 on iPhone X
Keen Lab team jailbreak the iOS 12 beta 1 within a week after releasing iOS 12 beta 1. They have demonstrated the iOS 12 jailbreak on iPhone X. Jailbreaking took less than a minute and installed Cydia after the jailbreak process.

As this is developer beta 1, the bug will not exist until the public release of iOS 12. Also, it's certain that Keen Lab will not release a jailbreak tool for iOS 12.
360Vulcan Team Demonstrated iOS 12 Remote Jailbreak at MOSEC
360 Vulcan team recently posted a video claiming a remote jailbreak on iOS 11.4 and iOS 12 and it was confirmed at MOSEC as they have demoed the jailbreak.
They had successfully jailbroken the iOS 12 beta and demonstrated the iOS 12 remote jailbreak at MOSEC security conference. They have used the Safari + kernel bug for this jailbreak.
However, it's uncertain that this bug will survive until iOS 12 public release even the jailbreak team is ready to develop a jailbreak tool.
