Jailbreakers: Coolstar Recommends Restoring to iOS 11.3.1 if You Have Updated to iOS 11.3.1 – iOS 11.2 OTA
A few days back we reported that a new Project Zero exploit could result in an iOS 11.3.1 jailbreak. However, there was some confusion about whether the jailbreak will support all the iPhones and iPads, especially devices newer than iPhone 6s.
iOS 11 was a rough version for the jailbreaking community, with a working jailbreak showing up pretty late in its life cycle. Right now, CoolStar’s Electra jailbreak is the only way to jailbreak any iPhone or iPad running iOS 11 – 11.1.2 device. However, we might soon see a jailbreak being available for iOS 11.3.1 as well.
The jailbreaking scene for iOS 11 has recently picked up steam with some potential iOS 11 jailbreaks being demoed along with the first developer beta of Installer 5 being released. Today, Activator Installer for iOS 11 has also been released.
As promised by the AppTapp team, the first developer beta of Installer 5 has been released. Billed as the Cydia alternative, Installer 5 is a fully featured package manager for jailbroken iOS devices running iOS 8 – iOS 11.
At the tail end of 2017, we covered the news about the AppTapp team working on a Cydia alternative called Installer 5. The alternative App Store for jailbreak apps and tweaks for iOS 10 and iOS 11 has been long under development. Today, the AppTapp team has announced that they will be releasing the first developer beta of Installer 5 tomorrow (i.e. May 22).
A few days back, security researcher and hacker, Min Zheng aka SparkZheng of Alibaba Labs revealed that he has successfully jailbroken iOS 11.3.1, the latest iOS version, and published the demo video of the iOS 11.3.1 jailbreak.
As they say, when it rains it pours. It seems that way when it comes to iPhone jailbreak news given the sudden flood of activity in the jailbreak community.
