Continuing the work started from the side of Ian Beer, we now find exciting news from Alibaba’s Pandora Lab. It looks like they have successfully achieved Jailbreak iOS 11.2 targetting Apple’s flagship iPhone X. The jailbreak claims to work for both iOS 11.1.2 and iOS 11.2 quite different from all recently seen jailbreak versions. In fact, the tool runs untethered jailbreak making you free from the conditions of re-signing to jailbreak. So let us now see what is all about the update and what can anyone say about its release to the public.
In Alibaba’s words, the jailbreak is named “Pandora”. And as to the picture, it has successfully Download Cydia on iPhone X Home screen. Considering the word of Song Yang, the head researcher at Alibaba, the tool here accepts untethered jailbreak unlike Todesco’s Yalu and several other jailbreaks we came across this far. This means you can still stay on Cydia privileges, even after the reboot. So it will be stable and comfortable for the user more than the time you had with all semi-untethered jailbreaks so far.
Will Jailbreak iOS 11.2 be Public?
As researcher Song Yang furtherly states, Pandora jailbreak would remain for research purpose. So we hardly find any plans for an immediate tool launch of “Pandora”. But it does carry some new hopes making the user quite encouraged for the new scope of Jailbreak iOS 11.
As to all the updates recently came in view of the jailbreak community, it seems like a new season of jailbreak is on. If you remember, what was on the side of Ian Beer some weeks before this, he proves the possibility of tfp0 exploit on iOS 11 to iOS 11.1.2 in approaching a new jailbreak and Cydia session. And this time, it is a different story by team Alibaba, as Pandora claims to work for iOS 11.1.2 to iOS 11.2. So all these give us one thing to remember. In fact, there is still chance for new jailbreak opportunities although Apple takes attempts to cover up holes and use new security measures. In that way, the reveal of Pandora is a very powerful piece of an update to those who eagerly wait for a new chance of Cydia Download. But there is no promise yet about a public release of Pandora, which is the only part here makes the user disappointing.
A Note for the User in the wait for a new Cydia Update
If you are in the need of a new jailbreak, you should not upgrade the device. So it is wiser to stay with iOS 11.1.2 as it has more chance to be jailbroken soon in considered both exploiting by Alibaba and Ian Beer sometimes back. So if you are currently on 11.1.2, it is a reason to cheer up. But in case if you have already upgraded, it is in vain as the doors for the downgrade to 11.1.2 are almost closed by now. In that case, stay with iOS 11.2 which is possible in jailbreak as to Alibaba.
It seems like we are entering a new era of jailbreak with a new hope of Jailbreak iOS 11.2. So stay with open ears to grab all updates from us.
