Here’s a tutorial on how to jailbreak iOS 11 to iOS 11.1.2 on iPhone X, 8, 7, iPad and all other devices using LiberiOS jailbreak tool.
Before we proceed are some important points to note down. This LiberiOS jailbreak too comes as a semi-untethered in nature which means you will have to put your devices back into ‘jailbreak mode’ after every reboot, and resign the jailbreak app every 7 days or so.
And of course, this latest jailbreak has been made possible by the Google’s Project Zero member Ian Beer’s exploit. Developer and hacker Jonathan Levin being able to produce this jailbreak called LiberiOS and released it to the public. So, let’s dive into and see how one can go about using it on your device. Before that, you can think about going through the tutorial below and jailbreaking. where there are a few things that you need to have in place. You can find the checklist below for reference:
- Supported devices and firmware: All 64-bit devices, including iPhone X and iPhone 8/8 Plus, running iOS 11.0 through iOS 11.1.2.
- LiberiOS jailbreak: get full details from our original announcement post here.
- Saurik’s Cydia Impactor tool, which is needed to get the IPA file onto your device, and can be downloaded from cydiaimpactor.com
- The latest version of Apple’s iTunes software.
- A computer running macOS or Windows.
- A free or full developer ID, which can be obtained from developer.apple.com using an existing or new Apple account.
It’s been notified that Cydia and Cydia Substrate don’t properly work just yet after the liberation. Wait for Saurik to update them. As of right now, you can use this jailbreak for root and SSH access, only.
Note: If you are the first time candidate and are new to jailbreaking then we would recommend waiting for MobileSubstrate and Cydia compatibility with iOS 11 to be released first and a jailbreak that pre-installs Cydia.
You can now follow the step-by-step guide below:
Step 1: Connect your 64-bit iOS 11.1.x device to your computer using a Lightning cable. Make sure you go through the process of creating a full backup using the latest version of iTunes 12.7.1 just in case anything goes wrong during the jailbreak process.
Step 2: Once done, launch Cydia Impactor on your computer and drag the downloaded LiberiOS jailbreak IPA file into its UI. Enter your Apple ID credentials when prompted and wait for Cydia Impactor to sideload the signed app on your connected device. New to sideloading using Cydia Impactor?

Step 3: Just after the app sideloaded, launch Settings > General > Profile(s) & Device Management (on some iOS versions it could just be General > Device Management) and tap the Profile associated with the jailbreak app. make sure you trust this to allow the LiberiOS jailbreak app to launch.
Step 4: Go back to the Home screen where the LiberiOS app is installed and launch it. Tap the Do It button in the center of the app (Screenshot below), sit back, and wait for it to do everything.
Step 5: After few minutes, you will get a screen that looks like below, indicating that the jailbreak has been successful.
That is it! Your device should now be jailbroken successfully!
