If you have a device that supports the Fugu14 tool and want to use it in tandem with the unc0ver jailbreak, you’re lucky. With the new version of AltStore, you can automatically install Fugu14 via the unc0ver application. The process is straightforward.
Before you proceed. READ THIS!
So far, the Fugu14 tool only supports the iPhone XS and newer, with iOS and iPadOS 14.4-14.5.1.
The exact list of supported devices:
A14 — iPhone 12 mini/iPhone 12/iPhone 12 Pro/iPhone 12 Pro Max
A12 — iPhone XS/iPhone XS Max/iPhone XR A14 — iPad Air (4th generation)
A12X — iPad Pro 12.9-inch (3rd generation)/iPad Pro 11-inch (1st generation)
A12 — iPad Air (3rd generation)/iPad (8th generation)/iPad mini (5th generation)
The tool may be updated in the future, adding support for iPhone X and older. There may also be support for older versions of iOS and iPadOS 14. There is currently no news on when that will happen.
If you have a suitable device with iOS or iPadOS 14.4-14.5.1, you can install AltStore v1.4.8 and later download the unc0ver app (v7.0.1 and newer) and install the Fugu14 tool.
Note that Fugu14 is released only recently, so it may contain bugs. The developer tries to eliminate them as soon as possible, but proceed to the installation only if you are willing to take a chance.

After you install the latest available version of the unc0ver application, a notification will appear in the AltStore stating that you can install an untethered tool. If you don’t see this message, your device doesn’t support Fugu14.

Untethered jailbreak flies off after rebooting the device, but the main advantage is that you do not need to reinstall or re-sign the unc0ver tool with some frequency. More information about the types of jailbreaking can be found here.
It’s important to note that Fugu14 is the first publicly untethered tool since iOS 9. This is a historical event.
Soon, other jailbreak tools will receive support for Fugu14. We can only wait.
