Apple Stops Signing iOS 10.3.1, Downgrades and Restores No Longer Possible

Posted June 28, 2017 at 2:31am by iClarified · 7859 views
Apple has stopped signing iOS 10.3.1 which means that downgrading or restoring to that firmware version is no longer possible.

Currently, Apple's latest firmware is iOS 10.3.2 and developers have been seeded with iOS 11. If you accidentally update or restore, you'll find yourself on iOS 10.3.2.

While Pangu demonstrated a jailbreak of iOS 10.3.1 that worked on the iPhone 7 it was never released. Just last week a jailbreak of iOS 11 beta was demonstrated by KeenLab; however, it's unclear if the group plans to publicly release the jailbreak or whether it will even work on the final version of iOS 11.

I can downgrade anytime I want...only dummies who didn't save their blobs can't downgrade.

Jailbreaking iPhones in 2017 is pretty much dead.

Article Translation: Basically....if you upgrade...you'll find yourself upgraded...and you may/may not be able to jailbreak on ios 10.3.1 if the tool is released, which will not happen most likely... Because you may/may not be able to jailbreak on ios 11 when it comes out because that may not/may be released ...so basically...go ahead and upgrade/don't upgrade....but be careful because a tool may/may not be released....maybe....so go ahead and upgrade but these guys at this event showed a tool that jailbreaks the operating system that you are currently on but most likely wont be released because of ios11/bounty issues. maybe just go ahead and buy an android or buy an iphone on 9.0.2 or lower and be done with it. Sincerely iClarified....

Good translation, You're just missing one piece, "you may/may not saved you're shsh blobs so you may/may not be able to downgrade using a downgrade tool which may/may not be released"
