The beta version of Apple’s iOS 11 has been jailbroken, but everyone keeps wondering if there will be a tool for jailbreaking the iOS 11. Major jailbreak releases There hasn’t really
been a significant jailbreak release lately, not since the iOS 10.2 was jailbroken back in January. On the other hand, a successful functional jailbreak was performed on the iOS 11 beta version in Shanghai, China at a mobile security conference back in June by a group of security researchers.
iOS 11 power Apple’s three new iPhones which have been unveiled on September 12: the premium iPhone Z, iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus. iOS 11 includes lots of improvements and new features, and iOS jailbreak developers are currently looking for ways of breaking the codes.
There hasn’t really been a significant jailbreak release lately, not since the iOS 10.2 was jailbroken back in January.
On the other hand, a successful functional jailbreak was performed on the iOS 11 beta version in Shanghai, China at a mobile security conference back in June by a group of security researchers.
If the beta version was able to be compromised, it’s safe to assume that a fully-developed iOS 11 jailbreak could be released these days as well. The fact that the beta version of iOS 11 was jailbroken gave everyone hope that there’s a chance to develop a jailbreak for iOS 11 as well if the exploits that have been used by the hackers will not be patched of course.
Apple has already rolled ten beta versions for the iOS11, but it’s not yet confirmed if the company fixed the exploits that led hacker Liang Chen of Tencent Keen Lap to develop the iOS 11 jailbreak tool.
The very first iOS 10 jailbreak was released back in December 2016, and the tool was compatible with 64-bit devices such as the iPhone 6s, iPhone 6s Plus, iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. The tool was released by developer Luca Todesco who came up this January with a more stable version for iOS 10.2 which supported all 64-bit devices but the iPhone 7 and the iPhone 7 Plus.
The tool featured some limitations such as the fact that it was a semi-untethered jailbreak and it required users to rerun it to re-jailbreak their iOS devices in case they were rebooted.
By circumventing this process on iPhone 7/7 Plus running #iOS 10.3.x, it allows a full, un-tethered jailbreak of the device. Yet, another mistake pushed more people to think that this could just be another scam — 09/31/2017. According to the latest post from XigTeam, they plan to release the jailbreak tool on Sept. 31, 2017, which obviously is non-existent.
A new group of hackers known as #XigTeam claims to have successfully bypassed Apple Memory Controller (AMCC). By circumventing this process on iPhone 7/7 Plus running #iOS 10.3.x, it allows a full, un-tethered jailbreak of the device.
But their intention to bring a new #Jailbreak Tool is met with a lot of criticisms from Apple community especially after posting a couple of misleading information on their Twitter account. With these mistakes, many Apple users are thinking this could be another hoax.
While many believe that this newcomer is a fake, some would still want to see whether XigTeam would be able to deliver the much-awaited jailbreak tool for iOS 10.3.x, or not.
One of the biggest reasons is Liang Chen of Keen Lab who has followed them on Twitter.

Yet, another mistake pushed more people to think that this could just be another scam — 09/31/2017. According to the latest post from XigTeam, they plan to release the jailbreak tool on Sept. 31, 2017, which obviously is non-existent.
With another blunder like this, more people began to wonder whether they can and will deliver the next jailbreak tool. Others try not to make a big issue out of it thinking that the poster deliberately made this mistake to piss off those who believe they are “fake” or “scam”. Some believe it should have been 09/13/2017 while others think it could be October 1, 2017.
One of the more recent major hoaxes related to jailbreaking Apple iOS happened back in June of last year. A hacker group calling themselves “GSMagic Team” claimed to have attempted to create a jailbreak tool for iOS 9.3.3. Unfortunately, the team was unable to deliver their promise release of jailbreak tool by June 10 — a few days before Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference event — and so they abandoned their work altogether.
A few months later, “3K Jailbreak” surfaced. According to its developer known as 3K Assistant, this tool intends to jailbreak iOS 9.3.x. However, a lot of people reported that it was indeed nothing short of a malware.
Many websites also claim to have the latest jailbreak tool for the most recent iOS version. However, they only serve as notification tool by the said website wherein it works as news feed alert notifying users once a certified jailbreak tool is released.
Since Apple successfully launched its new file system on iOS 10.3, no jailbreak tool has been released so far. The last jailbreak tool release for the latest iOS version was Luca Todesco’s semi-tethered Yalu jailbreak which initially targets iOS 10.0.1 to iOS 10.1.1. With the help of Marco Grassi, Luca expands the coverage up to iOS 10.2.
Yet the most recent jailbreak tool is called Phoenix. Released by Siguza and tihmstar last August, this new jailbreak tool actually targets the iOS 9.3.5, the last update before iOS 10.
