If you are familiar with the world of jailbreak iOS, you probably heard about the new jailbreak tool rootlessJB for iOS 12.
The jailbreak community is now fullenthusiastic and positive due to increased activity in recent weeks. This is very good, but many users have become confused about what is happening. Many people do not understand what rootlessJB means, and how it differs from a full-fledged jailbreak with full root access, which can be released for iOS 12 in the coming days. Let's try to figure it out.
What does an ordinary jailbreak mean?
Jailbreak is “officially unsupportedApple’s operation, which allows access to the file system of a number of iPhone, iPod or iPad models. ” The definition says about access to the file system, which is very important, because it allows you to install themes, tweaks and jailbreak applications, bypassing the restrictions of Apple. Of course, jailbreak is a more complex concept, which provides even more features, but you must understand the essence.
What does jailbreak mean rootless?
The “rootless” jailbreak is not fulljailbreak It does not provide full access to the root file system of the device, but only the lowest level to the / var directory. It is much safer, because there is no possibility to modify and modify the system files with the ability to damage them. Such a jailbreak will not detect applications from the App Store, which usually do not work if available. However, many tweaks with such a jailbreak will not work either.
In fact, rootless jailbreak works the same way as a regular jailbreak, but it is much safer and its capabilities are limited. Such a jailbreak has access only to the root part, but not full access.
Such a jailbreak can be the basis for a full-fledged iOS 12 jailbreak or for something completely new.
