Google Security Researcher Released iOS 11.1.2 Exploit Details, Jailbreak Could Coming Soon

Ian Beer, a Google security researcher who works for the Project Zero team, has released an iOS 11.1.2 exploit called "tfp0," Beer believes could be the basis for a future iOS 11.1.2 jailbreak. He says it should work on all iOS devices running iOS 11.1.2 or below, though he only personally tested iPhone 7, iPhone 6s, and a sixth-generation iTouch.

This exploit gives complete control of the core of the operating system, though what Beer released is not a full iOS 11 jailbreak as some had hoped, but what he has shared could potentially be used to create a jailbreak in the future. Beer tweeted today for sharing the details on the exploit.

Since iOS 11.2 was released by Apple, iOS 11.1.2 is no longer the current version of iOS, but they still signing iOS 11.1.2 at this time. Apple will likely stop signing the older update in the near future, and its end could come sooner now that further information on the tfp0 exploit has been released.

While the popularity of jailbreaking has waned from both users and developer perspective. And now both ModMy and ZodTTD/MacCiti, which provided apps, themes, and tweaks for jailbroken iOS devices, shut down in November. Through a hacker demoed iOS 11 jailbreak couple month ago, but the hacker unlikely to release iOS 11 jailbreak.
