iOS 11.2.2 Jailbreak Still Under Works, Downgrade To iOS 11.1.2; Process Detailed
Users can not go back to iOS 10 if they’re unhappy with iOS 11 glitches and features. Nonetheless, if the users wanted to downgrade from iOS 11.2 to iOS 11.1.2, they can still do it without sacrificing their files and data. In fact, this could be a good thing since there is still no available jailbreak tool for iOS 11.2.
Why Should Users Stay Within iOS 11 -11.1.2?
Users might be asking why a lot of tech pundits would suggest them to stay within the bounds of iOS 11 – 11.1.2. The reason behind this is that if they will update further utilizing iTunes or over-the-air update, then they wouldn’t have the chance to obtain the latest supported jailbreak version. Just in case they updated to iOS 11.2.2, they will get stuck on that level until a possible jailbreak tool will be released.
Nonetheless, we have previously reported that the Alibaba Pandora Labs is working on the iOS 11.2.2 jailbreak tool. Unluckily, if the jailbreak team was able to come up with the tool it wouldn’t be released publicly.
