You may find it weird for Google to be releasing exploit details of iOS 11.1.2, but there really was a research conducted by the company to determine how vulnerable this version of iOS was.
Google has discovered an iOS exploit that caught the attention of the developer community. Accordingly, this was a potential for a first iOS 11 jailbreak. The vulnerability of the kernel was publicly shared.
Google’s Project Zero researcher Ian Beer has released a statement that he would one day share one of the many exploits to the recent iOS. The security patches provided by Apple for its security flaws were intended for iOS 11.2. So, Beer was set to share the said exploits anytime.
It was also found out by Beer that this exploit would work for all devices, but sadly he wasn’t able to test them personally. The said exploit should complete control to the operating system’s core.
Although the popularity of jailbreaking for the developer and user perspective, a new interest has resurfaced from the developer community for the iOS 11 – 11.1.2 exploit.
Due to the fact that there was no more update in relation to the latest iOS firmware, users are already looking forward to the latest features by updating their devices. However, users were advised that if they wanted to enjoy the upcoming iOS 11 jailbreak, they should hold on to it for now.
At this point, no update regarding a new jailbreak has been released. Nevertheless, it is recommended that you must wait a bit longer. If you update to the latest firmware, you will no longer be able to run the exploit discovered by Google’s Project Zero on your device.
Apple has already stopped signing iOS 11 – 11.1.2, so you may want to keep it low for now and wait for the biggest jailbreak revelation to happen in January 2018 from the developer community.
