Hacker and developer, Jonathan Levin, has released an update for LiberiOS jailbreak for iOS 11 – iOS 11.1.2 devices. LiberiOS jailbreak was the first jailbreak to be released for iOS 11, and iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.
Levin has said LiberiOS 11.0.3 update includes the following improvements:
fixes for odd use cases I never run into.. most notably FAT self-signed. Should be diamond solid
You can download LiberiOS 11.0.3 from the official website. Avoid using mirrors as they could include malware.
LiberiOS jailbreak is a semi-tethered jailbreak which makes use of Ian Beer’s async_awake exploit. It works by sideloading the LiberiOS jailbreak IPA using Cydia Impactor. If you need help on how to jailbreak your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch with LiberiOS jailbreak then you can check our tutorial for the step-by-step instructions.
Levin has also confirmed that code injection works but has also said that Cydia will not be supported.
And yes, Code injection works, but CYDIA WILL NOT BE SUPPORTED. EVER. So please don’t ask.
So if you had jailbroken iOS 11 – iOS 11.1.2 with LiberiOS jailbreak, then you shouldn’t expect Cydia to be released for it. It looks like there is some rift between Levin and Jay Freeman aka saurik, the founder of Cydia.
saurik has been working on Cydia for iOS 11 but he has indicated that he is working with people from past jailbreaks. So it is also not clear if that’s the reason for Levin’s decision not to support Cydia. It remains to be seen when saurik and ‘people from past jailbreaks’ will release the iOS 11 jailbreak with Cydia and Substrate.
Meanwhile, if you want to install jailbreak apps and tweaks then you need to use coolstar’s Electra jailbreak toolkit for iOS 11 – iOS 11.1.2. coolstar has used Substitute, an alternative for Cydia Substrate, which allows you to install jailbreak apps and tweaks. There are already more than 70+ tweaks that are compatible with iOS 11 – iOS 11.1.2.
