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 11.3.1?
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, iOS 11.3 and iOS 11.3.1. However, Chinese security researchers and hackers, Min Zheng aka SparkZheng andQixun Zhao, have both published videos to demonstrate that they have successfully jailbroken iOS 11.3.1. It is a matter of time for the iOS 11.3.1 jailbreak to be released.
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.
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.
The initial version of the Electra iOS 11.1.2 jailbreak did not include Cydia. But the latest version of Electra installs a patched version of Cydia that supports iOS 11, so it makes it easier to install jailbreak apps and tweaks. We recommend using Electra Jailbreak. There are several jailbreak tweaks compatible with iOS 11 – iOS 11.1.2.
There are more than 200+ jailbreak tweaks that are compatible with iOS 11 – iOS 11.1.2.
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. We recommend using Electra Jailbreak.
Beware of Scams
The fake news problem also affects the jailbreak community. We regularly come across websites and videos on YouTube that claims that they have a tool to jailbreak iOS 11.3.1. Please avoid such websites and YouTube videos as they are trying to scam users into paying for it, which are generally repackaged versions of the free jailbreak tool but won’t be able to jailbreak iOS 11.3.1. The jailbreak tools that have been released so far are free, and if a jailbreak is released we will be the first to inform you about it. So check trusted sites like iPhoneHacks to ensure you don’t fall for such scams.
