Just yesterday, iOS hacker Pwn20wnd dropped a pre-release version of unc0ver v2.0.0 with preliminary support for Cydia Substrate, a bevy of new features, and a long list of bug fixes and improvements. But he also noted that he would update the pre-release again if bugs were reported.
Pwn20wnd made good on his promise Friday afternoon after he shared an updated version of the unc0ver v2.0.0 pre-release via his Twitter account. As suspected, the new pre-release fixes bugs that were reported in the initial pre-release during the last 24 hours:
unc0ver v2.0.0 pre-release was updated to fix the bugs that we got reported about in the past 24 hours or so. https://t.co/xwxRUDYbqj

Citing Pwn20wnd’s official unc0cver GitHub repository, the updated unc0ver v2.0.0 pre-release encompasses the following changes and improvements:
- Enable Restart and Restart SpringBoard buttons on iOS 11.4 – 11.4.1 (Jailbreak itself doesn’t work on iOS 11.4 – 11.4.1)
- Improve the reliability of the Restart button
- Fix the broken multi_path entitlement check
- Add the compatibility layer for the other jailbreaks back to fix the apps like iCleaner
- Fix the bootstrap error
Following Friday’s light revision, unc0ver v2.0.0 should still be considered a pre-release. As always, we recommend holding out until the final release unless you’re an advanced user and know exactly what you’re doing.
Those certain that they’d like to move forward ahead of the final release can download the revised unc0ver v2.0.0 pre-release from the releases section of Pwn20wnd’s GitHub repository.
Unc0ver is a semi-untethered jailbreak just like Electra, which means you need to re-run the tool after every reboot. That aside, it encompasses a newer Saurik-approved version of the Cydia Store that runs better on iOS 11.
