Apple puts so many limitations on its iOS operating system that there is an entire community dedicated to breaking it in order to allow users to install Cydia and all other apps that Apple doesn’t agree with on their iPhones and iPads. Fortunately, recent news are showing that Apple fans who are stuck iOS 11 which cannot be jailbroken should consider updating to iOS 11.31 because a jailbreak tool is on the way.
iOS 11.31 Electra Jailbreak
As previously mentioned, there is a dedicated community to jailbreaking iOS devices and Electra is an important member. Electra is a team of developers who are known for creating iOS jailbreak tools when no one else can. Therefore, Apple fans should be happy to know that the official Electra website is saying that an iOS 11.3.1 is coming soon.
The “tfp0” Exploit
“All iOS 11.2 -> 11.3 should get to iOS 11.3.1 ASAP. We do not know yet whether the exploit will work below 11.3.1, so get to 11.3.1 to be safe” said CoolStar who is a member of the Electra team of developers.
Nonetheless, the reason why Electra will be able to crack iOS 11.3.1 is that the team will use the newly unveiled “tfp0” exploit which was announced by Ian Beer. In case you don’t know who Ian Beer is, he is a security researcher that made numerous discoveries which helped hackers crack Apple’s operating system.

We should also mention that Apple recently rolled out its latest iOS 11.4 software update which means that the tech giant is looking to stop signing anymore devices on iOS 11.3.1. Therefore, iPhone and iPad owners who are running on an older version of iOS should make sure to update their operating system.
