The jailbreak for iOS 11.1.2, getting closer thanks to a security breach

Although the Jailbreak is not what it was, it is still alive and promises to give a lot of war, although perhaps in a different way. And it is that if before we launched into the pool to customize our iPhone and get vitamin apps , now it seems that security experts are looking for gaps that notify Apple as soon as possible, preventing the jailbreak itself from materializing. If we already saw it in iOS 10.2.1 - iOS 11.0.3 and even for the iPhone X , now it would be for iOS 11.1.2.

Google security researcher Ian Beer, who is currently immersed in the Project Zero team, discovered a few days ago an exploit in iOS 11.1.2 called "tfp0", which could be the basis for the future iOS jailbreak 11.1.2 . During the afternoon of yesterday, he made it public on the Twitter social network:

According to Beer, this exploit would enable the jailbreak of all devices that have iOS 11.1.2 or lower installed , although he would only have tried it on iPhone 7, iPhone 6s and iPod touch of sixth generation. Eye because the security expert is not that he has launched the jailbreak itself, he has only pointed out the bug that would make it possible if someone developed it.

However, if you have installed iOS 11 on your iPhone or iPad , you probably already have the latest version, iOS 11.2, which was released on December 2. However, Apple is still signing iOS 11.1.2 for now, although it will soon stop doing so and its end would be closer now that the tfp0 exploit has been detected.

As we said initially, there are no good times for jailbreaking , between Apple continues to improve iOS incorporating more and more features that allow us to customize our terminals on the one hand, and that two of Cydia's main repos have recently closed , but do not lose the hope.
