Houdini iOS 11.3.1 Semi-Jailbreak Released

Houdini Semi-Jailbreak for iOS 11.3.1

As we eagerly wait for Electra iOS 11.3.1 jailbreak, hacker Abraham Masri has released Houdini beta 3 for iOS 11.3.1, the iPhone hack that brings semi-jailbreak experience to iOS devices.

Houdini is not a jailbreak tool like Electra Jailbreak but it brings semi-jailbreak experience by offering features such as:

  • Change Icon shapes
  • System-wide ads Blocker
  • Change Emoji fonts
  • Change boot logo
  • Add your face to Animoji (iPhone X only)
  • Themes
  • Hide/rename user-installed apps’ labels
  • Add Cydia sources and install themes
  • Clean all apps cache
  • Change device’s display resolution
  • Hide/rename 3D Touch icons’ shortcuts.
  • Edit Siri’s suggestions list
  • Theme passcode keypad (iOS 11 style or custom pictures)
  • Colorize and resize icon badges.
  • Theme Control center icons and sliders
  • Theme Lock Screen ‘Music Control’

Here’s what’s new in Houdini beta 3:

  1. Support for iOS 11.2 to 11.3.1 (thanks to Ian Beer)
  2. Home and lock screen widgets
    (temporarily disabled)
  3. Added Passcode customization in iOS 11
    (with new features included)
  4. Re-enabled themes in iOS 11
    (partially works)
  5. Added customizable icons
  6. Customize iOS 11 Control Center
  7. Option to disable system updates
  8. Option to remove Houdini (stock iOS)
  9. Faster startup time
  10. UI Changes and bug fixes
  11. Cleaner code base

Masri has also teased the Houdini semi-jailbreak for iOS 11.4 so we expect him to release it for the latest iOS 11.4 soon.

You can download Houdini beta 2 from the official website. You will need to sideload the Houdini.ipa file using Cydia Impactor.

Houdini is a good option if you are interested in customizing your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch without jailbreaking your device.

Meanwhile, we are also expect coolstar to release Electra Jailbreak for iOS 11.3.1 using the iOS 11.3.1 kernel exploit released by Ian Beer of Google’s Project Zero.
