iOS 11.2.1 Has Been Jailbroken!

iOS 11.2.1 Has Been Jailbroken!

Posted December 15, 2017 at 6:12pm by iClarified · 48588 views
Security researchers at Alibaba's Pandora Labs have successfully jailbroken the iPhone X on iOS 11.2.1. The news comes following the group's untethered jailbreak of iOS 11.2.

"[Jailbreaking] is a very technical challenge and a peak for every iOS security researcher trying to climb." says Long Lei, a security researcher who has reported seven vulnerabilities to Apple.

The Apple-implemented SMAP for iOS 11.1 is flawed and can be bypassed in a certain way. However, in the latest version, this issue has been fixed, which requires safety researchers to use other ways to solve the impact of SMAP . In addition, in older versions of iOS , security researchers could also trigger the kernel GC via the mach_zone_force_gc interface, or they could only populate the same type of data. But in iOS 11 , Apple disables the mach_zone_force_gc interface, so a new way to fire the kernel GC is needed.

iOS 11.2.1 Has Been Jailbroken!

Song Yang, head of Ali Secure Pandora Laboratories, says compared to other jailbreak in the past two years, Pandora Lab's jailbreak is "perfect."

"Although iOS 11.2 fixes some security issues, we confirmed on the day of release that the new version will still be able to jailbreak." Song Yang said, "Although we soon escaped iOS 11.2 perfectly, we were limited to security research purposes, So it does not provide jailbreak tools. "

While this jailbreak is unlikely to see public release, we're hopeful that the recent exploits released by Ian Beer will lead to jailbreak for iOS 11.1.2. The exploit is also expected to result in a jailbreak for the Apple TV.

It's not aligned because the other icons are wiggling (though I don't know why he'd have it in that mode to begin with). So it really is aligned, but the other icons moving makes it look unaligned. Although, still could be fake as f@&k though.

It's in that mode so that you know it's not just a shortcut to a website that has the cydia icon saved as its logo. That's how other people have been faking a jailbreak on YouTube and stuff

This is kinda why I don’t really care for JB anymore. It’s become a dic waving contest.

Another tool bites the dust... in older times, the whole community would rejoice with these announcements and the corresponding tool already available. Now it's only BS with zero probability of any public release, my iPhone 6 won't ever leave iOS 10.2 and my iPhone X... not holding my breath at all.

Blah blah... teases... lot of jail breakers have been teasing iOS 11 jailbreak, telling us that “look we did it first” . While Apple keeps shutting them down with a new beta update containing “Bug Fixes & Improvement”...if You need to do something different, make a public tool and make it happen...

Would tweaks even work with iPhone X? I would love a tweak to have control center back at the bottom and have more my battery % shown on the top.

I hope he releases it this time, jailbreak community has been awaiting for too long.

Release both exploits for the Apple TV and iPhone as a Christmas present for users. Don’t let greed overcome you by selling it for cash to Apples software team. It’s an iPhone season miracle!

If I could upvote this I would 😂👍🏽

Lol I hate when pictures are reversed like a mirror. Use the rear camera!

You do know that Apple isn't paying as much as other hackers are paying for iOS exploits right? Apples exploits payment thing has been a failure because it makes more sense for them to sell them to other companies

Selling to Apple or another private company, and even prize “cash” winning competitions are the war for them to go likely making it less probable for a free public Jailbreak is what I’m saying.

I hate those teasers showing off, forcing Apple to faster close the doors on those jail-breakable iOS's..

Exactly, why they are even born?
