CoolStar, the developer of Electra jailbreak toolkit has posted on a social networking site advising the jailbreak community to stay at iOS 11.1.x. Apart from that, he also confirms that iOS 11.2.2 jailbreak might be possible with its recently rolled out tool.

According to Redmond Pie, CoolStar has posted on Twitter giving an essential advice to the iOS device owners. The developer stated those who are interested in a jailbreak should decline any chance to upgrade beyond iOS 11.1.x. This is because Electra jailbreak toolkit presently has support for iOS 11 through to iOS 11.1.2.

Apart from that, CoolStar posted another tweet giving another piece of advice for the iOS device users. It stated that if anyone has already upgraded their iOS handsets beyond iOS 11.1.x, up to iOS 11.2.2 or iOS 11.2.5, then they must absolutely remain there and wait patiently.

In addition, this tweet also confirmed that most of the patches utilized in the Electra jailbreak toolkit are still well-matched and applicable to iOS 11.2.x. The developer also stated that it’s just a case of a new exploit needing to be discovered order to utilize those patches at best. However, the use of the word “yet” in the initial tweets of CoolStar suggests that something is probably in the works for versions of iOS beyond iOS 11.1.2.

iOS 11.2.2 Jailbreak News

In a separate report, iPhone Hacks stated that as of this moment there hasn’t been much news about the development of iOS 11.2.x jailbreak. But then, it has been confirmed that the security researchers at Alibaba’s Pandora Labs were able to jailbreak iOS 11.2.1 as well as iOS 11.2 on iPhone X.

Unluckily, Alibaba also said that though they were able to jailbreak the iOS 11.2.1 quickly, they don’t have any plans of releasing a jailbreak. This is because their work was restricted for research purposes only.

With that being said, it is still unclear if they were able to jailbreak iOS 11.2.2 as well or the Cupertino-based company has patched the security vulnerability utilized to jailbreak iOS 11.2.1. It remains to be perceived if hackers and jailbreak developers like CoolStar can find out the weaknesses utilized by the researchers.

Do you think CoolStar will manage to crack Apple’s security on iOS 11.2.2? Please share your thoughts in the comment section below.
