Unc0ver is one of the most popular jailbreaks available. It is a semi-untethered jailbreak. This means every time you reboot your iOS device, you have to run the Unc0ver app to re-jailbreak.
But then again, if you’re installing Unc0ver JB directly from the developer’s recommended sources, you might run into certificate revocation issues from time to time, which can be a bit annoying.
The reason for this is that, based on the method used to sign the Unc0ver IPA file, the app might be usable only for a limited time before you need to re-sign the app. If you’re signing the app using Apple’s temporary developer’s certificate, for instance, it can only be used for a week.
After the 7-day period, the Unc0ver certificate is revoked, and you need to renew it using a signing service such as Cydia Impactor over a USB connection (computer required). You have to repeat the process every 7 days to solve the Unc0ver not working issue.
Other app signing mechanisms may give you a longer validity, but then again, it’s only a matter of time before your app eventually stops working.
In this article, we will explore a way to install Unc0ver jailbreak online without computer on your iOS device. With this method, you need to install Unc0ver only once without having to worry about certificate revocation issues.
