New Project Zero Exploit Will Allow For iOS 11.3.1 Jailbreak [iOS 11.4 As Well]

Thankfully, iOS 11.3.1 jailbreak with Electra is happening in no time as to Ian Beer’s exploit for the said firmware. iOS 11 was a rough version for the jailbreak community, with a working jailbreak exploit showing up pretty late in its life cycle. Currently, the only way to jailbreak any iPhone or iPad running iOS 11.0-11.1.2 device is through CoolStar’s Electra jailbreak. However, we might soon see a jailbreak being available for iOS 11.3.1 as well.

Once again the jailbreak communities have broken silences to ignite the fire in the collective bellies of the jailbreak community and hinted towards an iOS 11.3.1 Electra jailbreak update coming soon.

Project Zero’s Ian Beer has tweeted that if you are “interested in bootstrapping iOS kernel security research keep research-only devices on iOS 11.3.1 for more tfp0.” The recent posts from those individuals confirm their continued dedication.

If you’re interested in bootstrapping iOS kernel security research keep a research-only device on iOS 11.3.1 for more tfp0. Release probably next week. Oh, and the 11.1.2 KDP-compatible kernel debugger really is coming soon!

As said previously that CoolStar’s Electra jailbreak is the only real iOS 11.0-11.1.2 jailbreak tool of note, complete with Cydia. The only accepted method of jailbreaking an iOS 11-powered device. Now, thanks to a post from Project Zero’s Ian Beer for his statement saying that is going to be released likely before next week.

Beer also recommended that individuals keep “a research-only device” around for when he releases that. Jonathan Levin – who is a polarizing figure in the community – has also confirmed that iOS 11.4 closes that aforementioned Ian Beer exploits and that Apple will likely end the signing window of iOS 11.3.1 as early as next week.

iOS 11.4 closes Ian’s upcoming Exploit. 11.3.1 update window likely to close by next week. Update *NOW* or suffer later.

(Btw #QiLin is forward compatible, but rootfs remount requires APFS snapshot workaround)

Reports of jailbreaking’s demise have been greatly exaggerated 🙂

Obviously, it’s within Apple’s remit to close the signing of iOS 11.3.1 as soon as is humanly possible to prevent device owners from downgrading when an iOS 11.3.1 jailbreak is released.

This exploit is only available on iOS 11.3.1 as Apple has already patched it in iOS 11.4. With Apple also likely close the signing window of iOS 11.3.1 next week, just after unveiling iOS 12. Its very much advised you update/downgrade your device right away to it if you are interested in jailbreaking your iPhone or iPad.

Speaking of that jailbreak for iOS 11.3.1, both CoolStar and nullpixel have provided a ray of hope to the community and stipulated that Electra “might be updated to support 11.3.1 soon.”

ps: Electra will probably be updated 🙂

Electra might be updated to support 11.3.1 soon, however there is a non-zero chance of it only supporting devices up to A9 due to requiring a KPP bypass

I have no real interest in devices newer than the iPhone 6S, so if we have to patch something protected by KPP I’ll likely just use the KPP bypass and not bother with iPhone 7 or newer

If you are a jailbreak enthusiast, and an iOS 11.3.1 jailbreak appeals to you, then get onto that firmware right now while you still can.
