It Is Impossible To Download iOS 10.1.1 Jailbreak On iPhone Just Yet

Would it be possible to download iOS 10.1.1 jailbreak on iPhone is the only question of time, as currently there is a proof that this iOS version could be jailbroken. At the end of last week, a demo video revealed iPhone 7 running iOS 10.1 that was jailbroken. There was a lot of skepticism surrounding its legitimacy, but now the well known iOS hacker Luca Todesco posted image evidence of his own iPhone 7 jailbroken on iOS 10.1.1 via Twitter.

iOS 10.1.1 is currently Apple’s latest public firmware for iOS devices, and it has closed bulk of security holes that could have been used for jailbreaking. Todesco’s personal jailbreak isn’t linked to the one from last week. Each were made by two different persons who would more than likely be using different exploits to get to the jailbroken state.

Creating a jailbreak for Apple’s latest iOS firmware requires getting around new security measures to thwart jailbreaking, like kernel patch protection (KPP). Todesco says he’s managed backwards compatibility with iOS 10.1, in addition to iOS 10.1.1:

Todesco has a long track record of releasing teaser videos and pictures on Twitter. There were browser-based jailbreak for iOS 9.3.2 devices, jailbreak for iOS 9.3.4 and 9.2.1 versions. But unfortunately none of these tool were released to public forcing us to think that it won't be possible to download iOS 10.1.1 jailbreak on iPhone from Todesco.

The rapid releases of new iOS software updates from Apple makes it harder for jailbreak teams who are undoubtedly researching the exploits to release jailbreak to public. What is more releasing a jailbreak to the public is a long process that requires a lot of resources and testing across the iOS devices. This is tremendous work that could be done by team like Pangu or TaiG not by a single person.
