iOS 11.3.1 Jailbreak

A few days back, security researcher and hacker, Min Zheng aka SparkZheng of Alibaba Labs revealed that he has successfully jailbroken iOS 11.3.1, the latest iOS version, and published the demo video of the iOS 11.3.1 jailbreak.

Security researcher and hacker, Qixun Zhao aka SorryMyBad of the Qihoo 360 Vulcan Team, has also published a video demonstrating the iOS 11.3.1 jailbreak called Project Moon. He has also thanked other members of the Qihoo 360 Vulcan Team and John Leven aka @Morpheus______ for the help in successfully jailbreaking iOS 11.3.1. It again reiterates the fact that iOS 11.3.1 can be jailbroken.

As you can see in the video, you can see Zhao using the Project Moon app to jailbreak iPhone running on iOS 11.3.1. It seems to install Cydia during the jailbreak process, but you can see Zhao needs to run a few commands using Terminal before launching Cydia. Zhao hasn’t mentioned if he plans to release the iOS 11.3.1 jailbreak.

Coolstar, well-known hacker and developer of Electra Jailbreak, the jailbreak tool for iOS 11 – iOS 11.1.2 has also indicated that he may release an update for Electra jailbreak that supports iOS 11.2 – 11.2.6.

It would be great if we could get a jailbreak for iOS 11.3.1, the latest iOS version. But as I had mentioned previously, with iOS 11.4 release imminent, which could be the last update for iOS 11, it may be prudent to wait for Apple to release iOS 11.4 before releasing the jailbreak so that they don’t patch the iOS 11.3.1 vulnerabilities in iOS 11.4.

We also expect the iOS 11.2 – iOS 11.2.6 jailbreak or iOS 11.3.1 jailbreak to be a semi-tethered jailbreak like the Electra iOS 11.1.2 Jailbreak. A semi-untethered jailbreak is similar to an untethered jailbreak, it gives the ability to reboot your iOS device on its own. On each boot, the iOS device startup sequence is unmodified and it boots into its original, non-jailbroken state. However, instead of needing to use a tool from a computer to re-jailbreak the iOS device again, like a tethered or semi-tethered cases, the user can re-jailbreak their device with the help of an app running on the iOS device. While an untethered jailbreak would have been ideal, I think the semi-tethered jailbreak is quite convenient and not as bad as a tethered jailbreak.
