How to jailbreak iOS 13.5.5 Beta 1 with unc0ver v5.2.0

Didn’t update to iOS 13.5 while it’s signing window was still open? No worries! You can now update your device to iOS 13.5.5 Beta 1 and jailbreak it with unc0ver v5.2.0.

Since iOS 13.5.5 Beta 1 is older than iOS 13.5.1, it’s still vulnerable to the kernel exploit used in unc0ver. And fortunately enough, Apple is still signing it.

Apple’s security team only patched the kernel exploit in iOS 13.5.1, which is also the latest signed version.

Version 5.2.0 of unc0ver adds support for iOS 13.5.5~b1 firmware along with other minor changes.     

Given how swiftly Apple patched iOS 13.5, we doubt they will allow iOS 13.5.5 Beta 1’s signing window to remain open for more than a few days.

So if you missed iOS 13.5’s signing window, now is the time to upgrade your device and get it jailbroken.        

IMPORTANT: We do not recommend installing a beta version of an operating system on your daily driver. If your device uses iOS 13.0-13.5, you can easily jailbreak it with unc0ver or checkra1n without upgrading.
