Apple on 4th Wednesday has officially stopped signing iOS 10.3.3 and iOS 11.0 making you only the option to iOS 11.0.1 and recently updated iOS 11.0.2. With this change, you are longer allowed downgrading to iOS 10 iteration as it closes gates for 10.3.3. So considering the changes with the signing, let us look news around Jailbreak iOS 11 and chance could have for iOS 10 Cydia.
As to the usual practice of Apple, they close signing window for older firmware with new releases at hand. This is Apple’s attempt to keep the user to the latest firmware at the point which is in one healthy for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch for a flawless iOS run. And on the other hand, this is Apple’s way of threat jailbreaking which gets the highest possibilities as long as you are on an older firmware. So for now, iOS 11.0.1 and iOS 11.0.2 are the latest firmware signing for 64-bit devices for which Apple’s decision on stop signing the older firmware comes not too surprising. But in case if you are in the perspective of jailbreaking?
What is the possibility of a new Jailbreak iOS 11?
Since there was no jailbreak seen from Yalu up to iOS 10.2, this move not looks much affecting for jailbreak fans. But As there have been times iOS 10 Cydia Download possibilities are discussed, there is some chance to have updates to a new iOS 10 jailbreak. So if you believe in a chance, it is better to avoid upgrading the device at the moment only in the aim of iOS 11 features and system updates.
While iOS 10 moves in that way in concern jailbreak and Cydia, we are almost set in a new prospect of iOS 11 Jailbreak. In addition to the KeenLab demonstrations when iOS 11 at betas, we recently came to a new exploiting at the times iOS 11 is official. So all thanks here go to developer Todesco for revealing WebKit Exploit in iOS 11.
There are times developers do research for vulnerabilities and exploiting for their personal research purpose. If so, the chance we could see Todesco back in a jailbreak is quite low. But in case if it is not, there would likely be a new Safari based Jailbreak update with use of the WebKit exploit. However, as we are still with ground support to the fact, it is unknown how would Todesco will come in a new jailbreak. And do not forget Todesco is a name already announced the departure from the jailbreak chapter since the release of Yalu. So here we have double cheers having Todesco back with the most expected Jailbreak iOS 11 clue.
What is the current possibility to Downgrade?
As iOS 10.3.3 and originally released iOS 11.0 are no longer signed, you only can take iOS 11.0.1 or iOS 11.0.2. And if needed, you can still downgrade iOS 11.0.2 to iOS 11.0.1 previous version as both are the only signing through iTunes. For that, you need latest iTunes installed PC either running Mac OS X or Windows.
