Apple Stopped Signing For iOS 11.3 Beta 5 and 6 Ahead iOS 11.3.1 Electra Jailbreak Release
If the hackers and jailbreakers are doubling their efforts in cracking Apple’s security, the Cupertino-based tech giant is also doing the same. As a matter of fact, the company has stopped signing the iOS 11.3 beta 5 and 6 ahead iOS 11.3.1 Electra jailbreak public release.
To have some background, after Apple has released the iOS 11.4, it the tech company closed the signing for the iOS 11.3.1 making downgrades to the said iOS version impossible. Luckily, a workaround was discovered which let downgrades from iOS 11.4 as Apple was knowingly or unknowingly still signing iOS 11.3 beta 5 and 6. Since the iOS 11.3 can also be supported by upcoming iOS 11.3.1 Electra jailbreak, those who are interested in jailbreaking their handsets downgraded to the beta firmware.
Unluckily, at this moment it appears that Apple has also stopped signing the iOS 11.3 beta 5 and 6. With that being said, there will be no more downgrades from iOS 11.4 to a version of iOS 11.3.x that can be jailbroken when the forthcoming iOS 11.3.1 Electra jailbreak drops for the public. Speaking of the impending Electra update, it appears to be going very well and must be released in the public domain earlier than expected.
It is also worth mentioning that there’s an internal conversation with the CoolStar team about whether or not to deliver the iOS 11.3.1Electra jailbreak as a JailbreakMe 5.0 experience. Aside from that, the jailbreak community has also witnessed the Cydia essentially working on the iOS 11.3.1 jailbreak, which gives the jailbreak enthusiasts great optimism that the release of this much-anticipated jailbreak is really near.
It can also be recalled that CoolStar has also established that there will be no developer previews of the iOS 11.3.1 Electra jailbreak or limited beta-testing launched. The moment it’s done and out, it’s released for everybody. Always stay tuned as we’ll continue to keep you updated on all things regarding jailbreak as they progress.
