Jailbreak iPhone X on iOS 11
You can jailbreak iPhone X on iOS 11 – iOS 11.4.1 using Electra Jailbreak for free.
Electra Jailbreak toolkit is a semi-untethered jailbreak for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch running iOS 11 – iOS 11.4.1 by coolstar, a well-known hacker, and developer.
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 such as the Electra app in case of Electra jailbreak.
Jailbreak iPhone X on iOS 12
You can currently jailbreak iPhone X on iOS 12 to iOS 12.1.2 using unc0ver jailbreak, or chimera jailbreak. The free jailbreak tools don’t support iOS 12.1.3, iOS 12.1.4, iOS 12.2, iOS 12.3, and iOS 12.3.1 currently as Apple has patched the exploits that were used by the jailbreak tools.
