CoolStar Recommends Restoring To iOS 11.3.1 As iOS 11.3.1 Jailbreak Tool Imminent
Coolstar already publicized that it has a plan of releasing the Electra iOS 11.3.1 jailbreak that has support all iPads and iPhones. With that, the team advised that all the iOS device owners who wanted to jailbreak their devices to restore to iOS 11.3.1 firmware.
CoolStar has advised the jailbreakers on iOS 11 – iOS 11.1.2 jailbreak to save the iOS 11.3.1 blobs. This is for them to be able to restore to iOS 11.3.1 even after Apple stops signing the iOS 11.3.1 firmware through the use of the future restore tool.
The jailbreak team has also advised the jailbreakers who have updated to iOS 11.3.1 via the OTA (over the air) update method. This can be done by installing the iOS upgrade via the Settings Application to restore to iOS 11.3.1 using iTunes, idevicerestore or future restore for them to be on the safe side. Here’s what CoolStar posted on its Twitter account:
Anyone who OTA updated to 11.2/11.3.x, make sure to restore to 11.3.1 to be safe
We don’t know yet if OTA updates could possibly mess up rootfs rw
The over the air updates are known to cause problems with the jailbreak procedure. Thus it is advised for the users to install iOS upgrades utilizing iTunes instead of using OTA update.
It is also worth mentioning that CoolStar will be able to work on iOS 11.3.1 jailbreak the moment Ian Beer releases the iOS 11.3.1 tfp0 exploit. Ian Beer has plans to release the said exploit next week. It can be recalled that Beer is also the one behind releasing the iOS 11 – iOS 11.1.2 tfp0 exploit, which was utilized to develop the Electra Jailbreak tool for iOS 11 – iOS 11.1.2.
In case you already upgraded to iOS 11.3.1 through the OTA method and interested in jailbreaking iOS 11.3.1 then you must restore to iOS 11.3.1 utilizing iTunes. Always stay tuned for further announcements about the iOS 11.3.1 jailbreak tool release as we’ll surely keep you updated.
