iOS 11 - iOS 11.1.2 Jailbreak LiberiOS Has Been Released for iPhone X & Other Devices.
If you thought Christmas was over, then you already know it isn't, if you're readying this of course. LiberiOS is the first ever jailbreak for iOS 11 based on Ian Beer's discovered exploits, and works flawlessly on the iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and every other device that is 64-bit and is able to run up to iOS 11.1.2. That is basically pretty much every device after the iPhone 5s. Without further ado, let's jump right into action and show you how to use this solution for an iOS 11.1.2 jailbreak.
Before You Proceed...
It's very, very important to know that this jailbreak works on anything and everything between iOS 11.0 and iOS 11.1.2. If you are not on any of those firmware versions, then you are out of luck. But thankfully, since Apple is signing iOS 11.0.2 all the way up to iOS 11.1.2, therefore you can downgrade your device to any firmware version of your choice using iTunes. Just make sure you save all your data using iTunes or iCloud.
Make sure you do the downgrade / upgrade part quick as it is impossible to tell when Apple might close the signing window, killing the jailbreak altogether.
LiberiOS is a Semi-Untethered Jailbreak.
In case you were wondering, LiberiOS is a semi-untethered jailbreak for iOS 11 - iOS 11.1.2. This means that if your device reboots or loses power, you have to kick it back into the jailbreak state by following the guide (below) again. So keep that in mind.
Make Sure You Have a Free Developer Account.
Strong emphasis on the word FREE, you will require an Apple developer account, which can be created without spending a dime. Head over to developer.apple.com to create one right now. You can use your existing Apple ID to create one, which is a huge plus.
Download Cydia Impactor & iTunes.
Make sure that you have downloaded and installed Cydia Impactor (cydiaimpactor.com) and iTunes (apple.com/itunes) on your PC or Mac.
iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone SE, iPhone 5s, iPod touch 6, iPad mini (2, 3, 4), iPad Air (1, 2), iPad 5, iPad Pro (all models).
Jailbreak iOS 11 Using LiberiOS.
- Connect your device to your PC or Mac using a Lightning cable.
- Download LiberiOS from this link.
- Launch Cydia Impactor and drag the LiberiOS IPA file onto it, then follow the on-screen prompts for installation. You will be required to enter your Apple developer account credentials here so make sure you enter that when prompted for it.
- Once the installation process is complete, go to Settings > General > Profiles & Device Management and TRUST the LiberiOS profile here.
- Once trusted, run the LiberiOS app from your device's home screen then tap on 'Do It.'
- Give it a few seconds and your device will be jailbroken, and completely liberated from Apple's shackles.
As mentioned earlier, this is a semi-untethered jailbreak, so you have to sign it again after a period of seven days. Follow the steps again in order to do so.
Also, since Cydia hasn't been updated for iOS 11, therefore you won't get Cydia or Cydia Substrate after jailbreaking your device. We will notify our readers whenever it is live and ready for consumption.
