Apple Has Stopped Signing iOS 11.1.2, Downgrade No Longer Possible

If you are one waiting on iOS 11.1.2 for a jailbreak then it is good, but slightly bad for those who have already updated their devices to iOS 11.2 or 11.2.1 are out of luck. Apple has stopped signing iOS 11.1.2 firmware for both iPhone and iPad.

You can now no longer downgrade from iOS 11.2.1 to iOS 11.1.2 for a future jailbreak because Apple stops signing 11.1.2 literally. Killing downgrade possibility for upcoming iOS 11.1.2 jailbreak. All this happened shortly after a guide on how to prepare for an upcoming jailbreak for iOS 11.1.2 was published.

Bad news for those of you who didn’t upgrade or downgrade to iOS 11.1.2 in time can now no longer do so as Apple stopped signing that particular firmware for any compatible device.

If you are a jailbreaker, then this might be a big deal for you given Google’s Ian Beer’s recent release of an exploit for iOS 11.0-11.1.2 firmware which could potentially bring first iOS 11 and iPhone X jailbreak to the public. But unfortunately, now Apple has thrown a little snapper into the first iOS 11 jailbreak situation by ceasing to sign the aforementioned firmware.

Do not think about downgrading back to iOS 11.1.2, as the opportunity for reverting back has ended for good and there’s nothing you can do to get onto that firmware.

The most talented hackers in the form of Tihmstar, Abraham Masri, siguza and even Luca Todesco to some extent has given something, chances are that we are going to see a jailbreak for iOS 11.0-11.1.2 based on Ian Beer’s tfp0 exploit sooner rather than later. The only problem is that those of you who didn’t upgrade or downgrade to pre-iOS 11.1.2 firmware will now be out of luck.

Just hours back the iOS 11 untethered jailbreak has been achieved, especially on iPhone X, Apple has directly taken the decision to stop signing window.While the jailbreak achieved wasn’t made available or released to the general public and the tool necessary to liberate devices will remain with developers for research purposes only.

What we have to admit is that Apple’s firmware is indeed jailbreak-able and it’s only a matter of time someone out there replicates the procedure and release a solution for the public launch. Those of you who are running any firmware between iOS 11.0 to iOS 11.1.2 and are interested in jailbreaking, it goes without saying that stay on those firmware versions and avoids upgrading to iOS 11.2.x.
