To install Yalu jailbreak, you needuse the computer program Cydia Impactor. This is a semi-tethered jailbreak, and when the device reboots, it ceases to function. You need to launch the Yalu application again and install the jailbreak again. Another limitation is that the Yalu certificate expires after seven days, so you will have to reinstall it every week through Cydia Impactor to renew it for another seven days.

Jailbreak status for iOS 11

A lot of time has passed since the release of the last jailbreak. The latter was released in January for iOS 10.2, except for the Pheonix jailbreak released for iOS 9.3.5.

The good news is that a team of specialists onSecurity released a jailbreak demo for iOS 11 beta 2 and iOS 10.3.2 at this June’s Mobile Security Conference. The jailbreak author for iOS 11 is Lian Chen of Tencent Keen Lab.

Since jailbreak for iOS 11 betaIt turned out to create, we hope that a jailbreak for the final version will be released later. Apple has already released ten beta versions of iOS 11, so you can’t say whether the company fixed the exploit used for jailbreaking. It is also likely that the jailbreak of iOS 10.3.2 and iOS 11 was created exclusively for research purposes. But the fact that the software versions turned out to be hacked gives hope that hackers will be able to develop a jailbreak if the exploits are not fixed.

If jailbreak for iOS 10.3.2 and iOS 11 was developed only for research purposes, hackers and specialists may not release it publicly. We hope that the Pangu team will be able to find exploits in the final version of iOS 11. But you should not raise your expectations. We will keep you informed as usual.

Anyone interested in iOS jailbreak status11, we can only say that there is no news about him yet, although a week has already passed since the final release of iOS 11. So far, we cannot please you with anything, but we will definitely let you know if any news arrives.
