Apple has been trying hard to eliminate the chances for its iOS to be jailbroken, which means many iOS jailbreaking users may soon see the ability end. What is making it so hard for a jailbreaking tool to be developed? It’s Apple’s constant updates for patching vulnerabilities that make it so difficult.
Apple’s newest OS is iOS 11, which means there is not a jailbreak tool for this version just yet. There is, however, a possible jailbreaking tool for its 10.3.3 version.
A Look At The Possible iOS 10.3.3. Jailbreaking Tool
Adam Donenfield shed some light on the information. He said there were tools available that would permit users to downgrade their system to iOS 10.2 so that they could jailbreak their phones. His unclear answers about these tools mean that a possible 10.3.3 jailbreaking tool is near.
A Twitter asked Donenfield if a jailbreaking tool was going to be available soon, and his reply suggested he was working on one. However, he came back and clarified that he wasn’t working on it per say but that a jailbreaking tool was possible for 10.3.3.
This confirmation of a possible 10.3.3 jailbreak tool is extremely good news for those holding out hope. It means the possibility of jailbreaking your iPhone is high. Is he working on it or knows of someone else working on it? It really doesn’t matter. It’s clear the jailbreaking community has yet to give up on the prospect that one will become available.
Will There Be Another Jailbreaking Tool For The iPad and iPhone
Jailbreaking fans are happy with the iOS 11 jailbreaking tool, but still wonder if there will be a jailbreaking tool for 11.0.3 or 11.1.1 for the iPad or iPhone.
For now, jailbreaking tools are only available up to iOS 10.2.1. And, after the firmware version was made public, Pangu created a functional 10.3.1 jailbreaking tool. A demo by KeenLab during the MOSEC 2017 event showed a tool for 10.3.2 and 11.
There’s not a lot of information about newer jailbreaking tools, and many are wondering if the Chinese teams are going to package them together before they release it to the public.
KeenLab’s jailbreak is the only public demo of an iOS 10.3.3 jailbreak that could work on that version and iOS 11. However, KeenLab developers have been mum about the demos and upgrades.
With the iOS 11.x publicly available, chances are the only public jailbreak will be the iOS 10.3.x. This is because Apple fixed a plethora of vulnerabilities seen in the iOS 11 and not in the iOS 10.3.x. No confirmation about this has been made either.
As it currently stands, Apple is still using iOS 3.3, which means if you plan to downgrade, you can get a public jailbreaking tool for it. If you have updated your device to the iOS 11.x, you’ll need to downgrade back to the iOS 3.3.
