Update [7-11-2018]: Saurik has confirmed that he is working to finalize the Cydia for iOS 11 jailbreak. This is big news and we may be able to jailbreak our idevices running iOS 11 – 11.1.2 etc. Source
Jailbreak game is on again since many days. JB hungry community is running behind the blogs and videos and posts that are picturing jailbreak success. But the truth is that there is no jailbreak available that can give an end user like you and of course me the working Cydia app store. So we can say all these releases are actually partial and does not give full benefit of iOS jailbreak.
If we talk about last 10-15 days we have seen lot of claims and releases of which latest is Meridian iOS 10.3.3 jailbreak that is supporting all 64 it idevices. Before this we got update regarding LiberiOS11, h3lix 10.3.3 jailbreak which was updated as Rc5. At the same time news are coming that Cydia may get new life for iOS 11 compatibility, especially after the evolution of Installer 5 Cydia competitor.
Lets grasp some useful information on latest updates one by one.
1. Meridian Jailbreak Released
This jailbreak is released by PsychoTea as ips file that means it requires impactor to inject the file into your idevice after which you can say it is jailbroken. You can download Meridian Jailbreak Tool from our download section. But still Cydia will not work if your device is having any other jailbreak tool.
Meridian Jailbreak supports all 64-bit devices, running any iOS version between 10.0 and 10.3.3. The devices that are compatible include:
- iPhone 7 & 7+
- iPhone 6S & 6S+
- iPhone 6 & 6+
- iPhone SE
- iPhone 5S
- iPad Air 1 and 2
- iPad (2017)
- iPad Mini 2, 3, and 4
- iPad Pro 1 and 2 (12.9″ and 10.5″)
- iPod Touch 6th Gen
2. Houdini Semi Jailbreak Beta 2
Houdini is actually a jailbreak like tool which is not a jailbreak. It provides many tweaks and options and user may think that he is working in jailbreak environment. The process is same like other tools i.e. use impactor to inject ips file. Below is note from developer:
note: this is not meant to be a jailbreak replacement nor is this a full jailbreak. it will never be. although it is safe to use, I am not responsible for any mess up also, some features might not work in beta
How to Install Houdini
- Download the houdini.ipa file and Cydia Impactor
- Open Cydia Impactor and connect your device
- Drag the Houdini.ipa file onto the Cydia Impactor window
- Enter your Apple ID (email and password)
- Open Settings → General → Profiles & Device Management
- Trust the new certificate → open Houdini
- Tap ‘start’ and enjoy!
3. G0blin iOS 10.3.3 64-Bit Jailbreak
G0blin is third recent jailbreak that people are looking for and hoping for working jailbreak for iOS latest versions. The tool is available as G0blin.ipa file and as usual need impactor to install it. G0blin does not provide Cydia substrate at the moment which shortly shall be available for public in coming revisions. Refer below update from G0blin developer:
g0blin status update As you may know g0blin is basically a “yalu103” jailbreak: same devices as yalu102 but for iOS 10.3(.x) made possible by Siguza’s new v0rtex exploit. There is only one remaining issue: a missing entitlement for root apps. (1/x)
I gave Cydia the entitlement manually so it works 100%. Now I have to find/implement a solution that applies automatically to all such apps. I have a backup plan that I will implement temporarily just to release sooner, while working on the real solution.
In summary community is still waiting the release of iOS 11 jailbreak because Saurik is also working for Cydia iOS 11 finalization.
