now that checkm8 exploit is live how long do you guys think until we get an untethered jailbreak for iphone x ?! wouldn't that be awesome!?

If you could jailbreak your newer iphone in 2019/2020 what would you fix on it first?

checkm8 is tethered. So once it's sorted it probably will be quick tethered jailbreak releases after apple drops updates. Untethered/ semi-untethered jailbreaks still require exploits so they will be rarer.

Probably add a setting for 3D-Touch / Haptic Touch configuration. Enable it faster, enable it on other keys on the keyboard, etc.

I developed a few jailbreak tweaks back in the day and might get back into it as a hobby if it's really coming back to life.

The exploit is tethered not untethered. In spite of that, a semi-untethered jb can still be achieved. This article delves deeper into what checkm8 can and can not do. I would recommend giving it a read.

checkm8 exploit is really tethered tho. But I like the idea of iPhone X jailbreak and can't wait for it to fulfill.

Could had sworn it's untethered. Why is everyone saying it's tethered. There's a video of an untethered boot on ios 13...

That's the problem with videos. They are easy to fake. I'm sure someone out there has a video for how to jailbreak and install Cydia on iOS 14.

Checkm8 is an tethered exploit. The device must be tethered before each boot. It's an exploit, but not a jailbreak itself. If anyone is running a untethered or semi-untethered jailbreak on iOS 13 right now it's either a private jailbreak or fake, no matter what they claim.

Actually NO. The video was real. I just realized it was my understanding of "untethered", that was incorrect.
