iOS 11.4 Jailbreak Tool Still Possible As Two New Bugs Discovered?
As of this moment, the owners of devices running on iOS 11.3.1 and the iOS 11.4 beta 3 only have the Electra jailbreak toolkit for liberating their devices. The jailbreak enthusiasts are now eagerly waiting for the iOS 11.4 jailbreak tool and it appears to be possible since two new bugs were discovered.
Billionaire365 has learned that Min ‘Spark’ Zheng, a security researcher who’s working for Alibaba presented during the Defense Conference 26. This event is a hacking conference which occurs regularly in Las Vegas and Zheng took the chance to show two new bugs that ensue in the iOS 11.4. With this, the jailbreak enthusiasts now speculated that the iOS 11.4 jailbreak is still possible.
With that being said, there’s also a possibility that the iOS 11.4 jailbreak tool release could happen the moment the iOS 12 gets released next month. Moreover, it is worth noting that the complete presentation, called Fasten your seatbelts: We are escaping iOS 11 sandbox is accessible on GitHub. This also suggests that the bugs that Zheng presented were reported to Apple in August. Luckily, after two patches, these bugs are still there.
Unluckily, since Zheng is a security researcher, there is a huge probability that the jailbreak enthusiasts will not be able to see anything from him. Nonetheless, there is still hope that someone else will take advantage of these bugs.
Furthermore, a talented developer named Brandon Azad is anticipated to share its piece regarding the possible iOS 11.4 jailbreak sometime in September during a conference in Hong Kong. In that event, he will demonstrate how to utilize one of the bugs in iOS 11.4, the one which Apple allegedly fixed in iOS 11.4.1 release.
As of now, the fate of iOS 11.4 jailbreak is still unsure but, it is not impossible to happen. With that, let’s just keep our fingers crossed and let’s hope that a new toolkit will become available soon.
