iOS 11 brings hundreds of new features to iPhone and iPad such as the all-new and customizable Control Center, powerful multitasking features for iPad, new Files app, AR experiences using ARKit and lots more.
With every new iteration of iOS, the operating system is getting more polished and feature-rich, which makes jailbreaking less exciting. But we’re guessing you are here because you still have many reasons to jailbreak iOS 11.
How to Jailbreak iOS 11.3?
There is currently no jailbreak available for iOS 11.2, iOS 11.2.1, iOS 11.2.2, iOS 11.2.5, iOS 11.2.6 and iOS 11.3. However, Chinese security researcher and hacker, Min Zheng aka SparkZheng has revealed that the two vulnerabilities that he had discovered are still not patched in iOS 11.3, and has managed to successfully get root shell access.
How to Jailbreak iOS 11 – iOS 11.1.2?
You can jailbreak iOS 11 – iOS 11.1.2 running on your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch using LiberiOS Jailbreak or Electra Jailbreak tool. Both the jailbreaks are semi-untethered jailbreak. A semi-untethered jailbreak is similar to an untethered jailbreak, it gives the ability to reboot your iOS device on its own. On each boot, the iOS device startup sequence is unmodified and it boots into its original, non-jailbroken state. However, instead of needing to use a tool from a computer to re-jailbreak the iOS device again, like a tethered or semi-tethered cases, the user can re-jailbreak their device with the help of an app running on the iOS device.
LiberiOS Jailbreak is a semi-untethered jailbreak developed by hacker Jonathan Levin. It makes use the async_wait exploit released by Ian Beer. It was the first jailbreak released for iOS 11, iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.
Currently, Cydia is not included so it won’t be that easy to install the jailbreak apps and tweaks. Cydia Substrate needs to be also updated for iOS 11 by saurik, so most jailbreak tweaks may not work currently.
Electra Jailbreak Tool
Electra Jailbreak toolkit is a semi-untethered jailbreak for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch running iOS 11 – iOS 11.1.2 by coolstar, a well-known hacker and developer. coolstar has released the jailbreak primarily for developers so that they could test their jailbreak apps and themes.
It does not include Cydia, as Jay Freeman aka saurik has not updated it for iOS 11 yet. But Electra includes Substitute, a Cydia Substrate alternative, so you can install jailbreak apps and tweaks manually. There are several jailbreak tweaks compatible with iOS 11 – iOS 11.1.2.
