iOS 11.2.5 / iOS 11.2.x Jailbreak Tool Update: What’s The Real Score?
The jailbreak community has been relentless in releasing exploits. But despite that, a lot of jailbreak enthusiasts have been wondering about the real status of the iOS 11.2.5 or iOS 11.2.x jailbreak tool.
There is a good reason why the freshly released jailbreaks only offer compatibility up to iOS 11.1.2. The kernel level async_awake exploit that was discovered and released by Ian Beer of Google’s Project Zero supported the jailbreak the LiberiOS by Jonathan Levin and Electra by CoolStar. This is because the said exploit was basically “burned” when Apple was learned about it. Then it successively patched it in iOS 11.2, which is no longer can be used in any firmware after iOS 11.1.2.
With that being said, in order to jailbreak iOS 11.2.1, 11.2.2, iOS 11.2.5 and beyond effectively, the jailbreak enthusiasts will need to have another kernel level exploit. This is for them to be able to allow them kernel escape rights.
Additionally, it can be recalled that a jailbreak revealed by the moderately unknown Alibaba Pandora Labs has roamed around the wire. The company’s boss Song Yang explained that the jailbreak is fully untethered and it lets full root access, as users would expect. This is the first, and presently the only jailbreak that claims to set free devices on iOS 11.2.x. Nonetheless, Yang also stated that they have no plans on releasing this tool for public use.
The official statement from Alibaba Pandora Labs was open to a definite level of elucidation. This only means that tech pundits could actually see something release once the bugs used have been conveyed to Apple and patched in upcoming versions of iOS. As of now, it’s still unknown if the team has plans of cashing in on the bug through Apple’s Bug Bounty Program. It only means that there is a very small possibility that something will be rolled out in the future when iOS 11.3 or beyond is unveiled.
As of this moment, these are the only available information about the iOS 11.2.5 or iOS 11.2.x jailbreak tool. Please stay tuned as we will keep you updated.
