Apple Stops Signing iOS 11.2 - 11.2.2, Downgrades and Restores No Longer Possible

Apple has stopped signing iOS 11.2 to iOS 11.2.2. This means that downgrading or restoring to those firmware versions is no longer possible.

iOS 11.2.5 is latest public firmware version available and developers have been seeded with iOS 11.3. If you accidentally update or restore, you'll find yourself on iOS 11.2.5.

Jailbreakers, especially those on iOS 11.1.2, should take care not to update as saurik is working on a jailbreak with full support for Cydia and Cydia Substrate. Additionally, the liberiOS jailbreak for iOS 11.1.2 is already available.

We all know that in China - the world piracy capital - all gets copied and duplicated, excepting jailbreak tools lol. Now Apple no longer signing these versions is irrelevant tbh. iOS 11.3 may be the only one worth the shot, or not.

Even though Apple is struggling between sales and law suits and between MacOS and iOS bugs, critics on the iphone x design and price tag.... and yet they still put time and effort to kill old firmwares and fight jailbreak, and I proudly say I rather use an old iPhone on an old jailbroken firmware than a new one, and I remember when I bought my iphone 5s which I'm still using, I kept it in a drawer for moths and kept using my iPhone 4 until the jailbreak came out, couldn't stand a day without the jailbreak, I bet there's millions of users like me, I would like to be around when they terminate the jailbreak once and for all and see how would that affect their iPhone sales and adoption.

Eh, more like a few hundred or thousand. Jailbreak is too much drama and bs. Stupid worthless foreign wen eta kids who have no respect for developers, everyone wanting everything for free, and offering zero contributions to the community. The scene will never be what is used to be .

Wtf are you talking about no respect for developers? You mean apple’s bullchit closed and constantly crippled system? I have a ton of respect for jailbreak developers and I’ve purchased many tweaks which are waiting for me when Saurik finishes the new Cydia port for 11.1.2. I purchase the tweak or app once and I own it for life. That is the way it should be. I’m eagerly awaiting the release and have had no issues operating on 11.1.2 for several months on this iPhone 8.
