LiberiOS is here to not only jailbreak iOS 11.1.2 – iOS 11 software version, the tool can also jailbreak iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. It is the first official jailbreak for all the new iPhone models released late 2017. In this guide, we are going to share step-by-step instructions to jailbreak iOS 11.1.2 – iOS 11 on any compatible iPhone, iPad, or iPhone Touch model using LiberiOS jailbreak.
The jailbreak is developed and released by Jonathan Levin, and it makes use of the recently released tfp0 iOS 11.1.2 exploit also dubbed as async wake vulnerability.
Before proceeding with the iOS 11.1.2 jailbreak steps, please make sure to read these important points:
- Just like any modern jailbreak, the LiberiOS is a semi-untethered jailbreak. It means you’ll have to enter your device in jailbreak mode after every reboot. If you’re using a free Apple Developer account, you will also need to resign the jailbreak application every seven days.
- The jailbreak does not include Cydia, the App Store for jailbreak applications. Saurik is currently making it compatible with iOS 11. Avoid installing Cydia or jailbreak apps from unknown sources.
- The MobileSubstrate is also not supported so far, which means many jailbreak apps & tweaks won’t work on your jailbroken device.
- You can download LiberiOS jailbreak for free. Do not pay anyone for the jailbreak tool.
- Avoid downloading the jailbreak tool or installing Cydia from unofficial sources.
- Make sure to backup your device either using iCloud or backup using iTunes.
- Make sure your device has sufficient battery level before proceeding with the jailbreak process.
- This is the first release candidate for the jailbreak. We highly recommended to wait until Cydia and MbileSubstrate are available for iOS 11, and the developer releases LiberiOS jailbreak update that bundles all these goodies.
