We are one step closer to getting the first ever public iOS 11 jailbreak as Google’s Project Zero has released the exploit necessary to create a jailbreak. Just last week we reported Project Zero’s Ian Beer will be releasing his exploit soon, and now he has delivered on his promise.
The exploit that is called ‘tfp0’ has been fixed in iOS 11.2, which means only devices running iOS 11.1.2 or earlier will be able to work with the jailbreak if it is released.
While Beer has not personally tested the exploit on all available iOS devices, he has noted the tfp0 should work for all devices. If this includes iPhone X, we will have to wait and see.
tfp0 should work for all devices, the PoC local kernel debugger only for those I have to test on (iPhone 7, 6s and iPod Touch 6G) but adding more support should be easy

Good news is you can still install iOS 11.1.2 even if you have updated to iOS 11.2, since Apple is still signing the operating system. Here’s our complete guide on how to install or downgrade to iOS 11.1.2 and get ready for the possible iOS 11 jailbreak.
As always we will keep a close eye on developments and will let you know if any news about possible iOS 11 jailbreak is made available. Stay tuned for more updates.
