iOS 11.4.1 Jailbreak Status: Here’s What The Jailbreak Community Has To Know
The iOS 11.3.1 Electra jailbreak that can be used for the iOS 11.4.1 beta 3 firmware has been very successful. But despite that, a lot of jailbreak enthusiasts are still looking forward to the iOS 11.4.1 jailbreak tool.
According to Redmond Pie, the ideal scenario is that Apple will place a certain firmware into a pre-release phase and this is the time when the security researchers and some developers will be capable of jailbreaking it throughout the beta period. The Cupertino-based tech giant wouldn’t patch the discovered vulnerabilities and there would be a jailbreak toolkit that will be available for that firmware on its release.
Unluckily, the case is really different; we are in scene wherein the jailbreak for a particular iOS version was often rolled out once a major new version was able to find its way into the public domain. This is also exactly the same case for the iOS 11.4.1.
The iOS 11.3.1 Electra jailbreak is undoubtedly a great solution for those who are running on iOS 11.3.1 and iOS 11.4.1 beta 3. Unfortunately, Apple has recently closed the signing window so there’s no way your iOS 11.4.1 device can be downgraded to iOS 11.4 beta 3. With that being said, the devices running on iOS 11.4.1 are left helpless with no direct jailbreak release in sight.
Aside from that, the iOS 11.4.1 SEP and baseband aren’t well-matched with the iOS 11.3.1 either. To make it short, the possibility of having an iOS 11.4.1 jailbreak is still in a blur.
But despite that, there’s still hope. The Electra team was able to discover a Substitute that was being utilized in current jailbreaks. This is complete with the backwards compatibility, an alternative for Cydia Substrate, and it does even consist of the support for upcoming APT package installer and a manager that’s called Sileo. It will be bundled with existing and upcoming jailbreaks as a direct substitute for Saurik’s Cydia Installer.
Though the iOS 11.4.1 jailbreak tool release is still in a blur, it is hoped that soon the toolkit will be discovered and made available for public use. Let’s keep our fingers crossed and always stay tuned as we’ll surely deliver new updates about the jailbreaking scene.
