Published

on

“Can I jailbreak iOS 11?” It’s one of the most popular questions and it’s right up there with “Can I jailbreak the iPhone X?” The answer to both is yes, it is definitely something you will want to think about before you jump on it.

We’ve seen a lot of new info in the last month, and now a working iOS 11 jailbreak. The LiberiOS jailbreak will jailbreak iOS 11 and iOS 11.1.2 on the iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone 7 and other 64 bit iOS devices.

We’ll walk you through what you need to know about the iOS 11 jailbreak progress, what to watch out for and help you understand what’s happening in iOS 11, iOS 11.1 and iOS 11.1.2.

With no iOS 10 downgrade available and the temptation of new iOS 11 features and iOS 11.2 features this is what you need to know before you update.

iOS 11 Jailbreak Release Date

The iOS 11 jailbreak release date snuck up on us in late December with the LiberiOS jailbreak tool arriving just after Christmas. Since then the developer has worked through delivering fixes to issues and streamlining the tool.

You can download the LiberiOS jailbreak using the official source.

iOS 11 Jailbreak Status

The LiberiOS jailbreak tool is available free of charge and it works on iOS 11 through iOS 11.1.2 for all iPhones and iPads on iOS 11 according to the jailbreak developer.

This tool delivers a jailbreak for the Apple TV and Apple TV 4K as long as you are on tvOS 11 to tvOS 11.1.2.

The liberiOS tool delivers a semi-untethered jailbreak. You will need to re-run the jailbreak app every time you reboot your iPhone. Download the liberiOS tool here.

Here’s what to do now if you are thinking about installing the iOS 11 jailbreak when it is released.

iOS 11 Cydia Detials

Cydia is not working on iOS 11 yet. Saurik is working on an iOS 11 Cydia update.

He details this on Reddit saying, “I never made “millions” and I currently lose a lot of money each month on Cydia. I now have a “day job” where I spend a bunch of my earnings to pay for it (which I then have to balance with Cydia work). I am working on the iOS 11 updates even so, because despite people like you always trying to dispell people from thanking me for my efforts, I have managed to maintain my passion for the concept of jailbreaking as I truly believe in the concept.”

While there is a different to.panga jailbreak that lets some users install tweaks, it is aimed at jailbreak developers, not at normal users.

Houdini is a tool that allows you to change some options, but it doesn’t offer full theme access or the ability to install Cydia tweaks.

iOS 11 Jailbreak Warning

Watch out for fake iOS 11 jailbreak websites. The iOS 11 update just arrived and there are already half a dozen websites claiming you can start downloading the iOS 11 jailbreak tool to your computer.

Most of these use common jailbreak names like Pangu, Cydia, Yalu or Evad3rs to appear legit. In most cases, they will ask you to download a file that is behind some kind of test to prove you are a human. Instead of a captcha, they require you to fill out an online offer or sign up for a service. This allows the website operator to trade your personal information for a referral or affiliate fee.

The liberiOS jailbreak creator warns that you should only download from his website. This will give you the most up to date version, will make sure there is no malware added and that you don’t have to pay for the jailbreak.

What to Do If You’re on an iOS 10 Jailbreak

If you are already on an iOS 10 jailbreak, you’re in a tough place. You cannot install the iOS 11.1.2 update.

At some point, you may need to get onto a version of iOS 11 that you can jailbreak, but before a point version arrives to close the jailbreak.

Don’t upgrade to iOS 11.2 or higher as they will not be jailbreakable with this exploit. At this point, stay on your current jailbreak.

What’s New in iOS 11.4.1

What's New in iOS 11.4.1

The iOS 11.4 update added Messages in iCloud and AirPlay 2, but it also brought issues along with it. The iOS 11.4.1 update keeps these long anticipated features and includes fixes for some iOS 11.4 problems. 

Specifically the iOS 11.4.1 update;

  • Fixes an issue that prevented some users from viewing the last known location of their AirPods in Find My iPhone. 
  • Improves reliability of syncing mail, contacts and notes with Exchange accounts.  

This update also includes other bug fixes and security upgrades. It's possible that this update includes a fix for bad iOS 11.4 battery life. 

Messages in the Cloud allows you to backup your iMessage conversations to the cloud just like you back up your notes, contacts and photos. This means they are backed up in case something happens to your phone, but that's not all. 

Messages in the Cloud syncs deleted messages and threads across your iCloud devices. This means everything will show up the same across your Apple devices. With this in place you should see the same conversations everywhere, all of the time. 

This also backs up the photos and attachments in the cloud so you have more room on your iPhone or iPad. When you get a new device all of the messages sync to that device so you don't lose anything.
