With the way things have been going just lately as far as jailbreaks are concerned, every time Apple releases a new update, you can almost hear the collective groan go around the jailbreak community, knowing that the chances of a new iOS 11.2.6 jailbreak have just been pushed back once more. There is always room for good news and that’s what we have for you today , it has just been determined that the Baseband and SEP (Secure Enclave Processor) from iOS 11.2.6 download is fully compatible with iOS 11.1.2. So, what does that mean for you ?
Well, iOS 11.1.2 was the last version of the iOS that could be jailbroken, and this news means that it will be possible for iOS device owners to restore their devices back to iOS 11.1.2 and install the CoolStar Electra Jailbreak. However, this will only work if you have been using TinyUmbrella to save your SHSH blobs and you have those for iOS 11.1.2 saved and it will involve the use of FutureRestore.
This has all been fully tested and has been shown to work on the iPhone 5S with a high degree of success However, you do need to note that the betas for iOS 11.3 do not have the iOS 11.1.2 compatible SEP so anyone who is thinking of updating when iOS 11.3 is released will not be able to restore and jailbreak. This is it, your one and only chance to get that jailbreak on your iPhone or iPad. Nothing past iOS 11.2.6 will have the required SEP and Baseband needed to restore, even if you are using TinyUmbrella.
The jailbreak community has been thrown into chaos in recent times with so few jailbreaks being released. The downfall started with iOS 10, with just one usable jailbreak being released. Yalu was kicked out by Luca Todesco, but it would only work with the 64-bit iPhone, leaving many without a jailbreak. A few have been released, with Electra being released but most can only be used with certain devices and, as we are all aware, neither Cydia nor substrate has been updated to support iOS 11 by Saurik, or Jay Freeman as you may know him.
If you are not using TinyUmbrella, you should be. Although the tool cannot be used to restore your device back to an earlier version of the iOS, it can be used for saving your SHSH blobs and as we all know, this is important for jailbreaking purposes so download it and start using it today.
