Apple started rolling out its latest iOS 11.4 a couple of days ago which features a new version AirPlay 2 and iMessages in Cloud. However, not everyone is that willing to receive all of Apple’s latest updates because this means that their operating system cannot be jailbroken anymore. Talking about iOS jailbreaks, Apple fans who enjoy installing Cydia and all other free apps on their iPhones should be happy to know that an iOS 11.4 SEP (Secure Enclave Processor) jailbreak took is close to being launched.
Ian Beer Exploit
Ian Beer is a security analyst who is renowned for his ability to find exploits in Apple’s operating system. The security analysts always announce the exploits that he manages to find and these are used by hackers and software developers to create jailbreak tools.
Nonetheless, Ian Beer recently unveiled that there is an exploit in iOS 11.3.1 and that he is working with the CoolStar team in order to create an iOS 11.3.1 jailbreak tool. To make things even better, the exploit is being incorporated into an upgraded version of Electra which features Min Zheng’s KPP bypass.
iOS 11.3.1 Jailbreak Tool
With that being said, Apple fans who are still running on iOS 11.1.2 and waiting for a jailbreak tool should make sure to update to iOS 11.3.1. We should also mention that Apple devices which are running on an older version of the 11.2.1 toolkit can still upgrade their operating system to iOS 11.3.1 by using saved SHSH2 blobs.
As previously mentioned, Apple rolled out iOS 11.4 and this means that the Cupertino based tech giant might want to stop signing iOS 11.3.1. Fortunately, this is not going to be an issue for any jailbreak fans since they can use the SHSH2 blobs and get iOS 11.3.1 without any problems.
