Apple recently hosted its WWDC event where it unveiled everything there is to know about iOS 12. The major software update is scheduled to roll out during this fall and this means that jailbreakers need to step up their game if they want to unlock iOS 11.3.1 before Apple stops signing it. Luckily, Abraham Masri managed to create a semi iOS 11.3.1 jailbreak tool which gives us hope that a full version might arrive in the upcoming future.
Houdini iOS 11.3.1 Semi Jailbreak Tool
In case you didn’t know, Abraham Masri is an experienced hacker and developer who loves to take on Apple’s iOS. The developer just launched a Houdini iOS 11.3.1 semi jailbreak tool that uses the iOS exploit which was found by none other than Ian Beer, another prominent personality in the iOS jailbreak community.
Nonetheless, the Houdini tool is renowned for giving iOS fans the ability to access multiple apps, features and functionalities that stock Apple devices are not usually able to run. Unfortunately, this is not a full jailbreak, and this means that Cydia cannot be installed.
Complete Jailbreak Tool
We should mention that Abraham Masri is not the first developer to release a semi jailbreak tool for iOS 11.3.1 since the folks behind Electra managed to do the same thing. On the downside of things, the semi jailbreak doesn’t allow for a complete Cydia installation and it doesn’t fully open iOS to features and functionalities that Apple doesn’t agree with.
Although, having a semi jailbreak tool is better than nothing. Moreover, the semi jailbreak tool also shows that cracking iOS 11.3.1 is possible and that in due time, Houdini or Electra might be able to offer a complete jailbreak. The only thing we can do right now is to wait and hope that Abraham Masri, Ian Beer or other jailbreakers will find new exploits.
