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.
