In our previous post, we discussed Google released details of an iOS 11.1.2 tfp0 exploit to the public. Now, it seems there is a fully successful story of an extension to the first ever iOS 11 jailbreak. As it seems, iOS 11.2.1 / iOS 11.2 jailbreak has been successfully achieved. That too, it’s an untethered jailbreak solution.
Jailbreak! It was thought that the liberation of an iOS version 11 was dead, but we have seen in the past where new jailbreaks are concerned, Alibaba Pandora Labs has issued a statement on the subject which doesn’t actually confirm everything, but does clarify that the team behind jailbreak has no iterations on actually releasing anything to the wider public.
iOS 11.2.1 / 11.2 jailbreak fully untethered has been achieved on iPhone X as claimed by the folks over at Alibaba Pandora Labs. The operation installs Cydia successfully as detailed by Song Yang. Moreover, the jailbreak is completely untethered in nature and is available for the iPhone X. Untethered jailbreak which claimed by Alibaba Pandora Labs also allows the device to be rebooted which is a big deal if you’re familiar with the liberation process.
It has also been discussed by Alibaba Pandora Labs Song Yang that the jailbreak successfully installs Cydia which would expect with an untethered experience, but there’s a catch; the company has no plans to release it publicly.
However, there is a tiny bit of a problem that might annoy you, which the company does not have any intentions to release it to the general public, even though iOS 11.2.1 / iOS 11.2 fully untethered jailbreak has been achieved on the iPhone X. In a statement regarding the unavailability to the general public, the company said:
Although iOS 11.2 fixes some security issues, we confirmed the new iOS will still be jailbroken on the first day it was released. Although we escaped iOS 11.2 quickly, we were limited to security research purposes, our team won’t provide any jailbreak tool.
This means that Alibaba Pandora could potentially release it to the wider audience when Apple will patch the exploits, meaning that once Apple has actually patched the vulnerabilities in future versions of iOS then it could be possible that the company will share the jailbreak with the world.

The current best hope to stand at is a public jailbreak that sits with the use of the Ian Beer’s exploit which has recently released supporting iOS 11.1.2 and below. Also, we have minor hopes attached with Alibaba Pandora’s iOS 11.2.1 / 11.2 fully untethered jailbreak. The image attached shows Cydia successfully installed on an iPhone X.
This development is still positive news for the jailbreak community as of now. There will be more to the story, so be sure to stay tuned in for more details.
With that said, it doesn’t mean that we should all jump into the Software Update mechanism and start downloading iOS 11.2.x. This could only be our best hope of a public jailbreak of any kind currently sits with iOS 11.1.2, which is why device owners should act while they still can and downgrade to that firmware if necessary before Apple stops signing it.
