iOS 10.3.1 Jailbreak Update: Pangu to Release Jailbreak Tool After Summer Tech Conferences

By Jeff Harris, Posted: 05/19/17 01:13AM EDT

Latest information from the jailbreak community brings a little bit of smile to those who are waiting for the next jailbreak tool. As

rumors suggest, Pangu may be releasing the jailbreak tool for iOS 10.3 and iOS 10.3.1 after the major tech conferences this summer. If this is true, then we could be feasting for new apps and themes available in Cydia, say, by middle of June.

The information came from a series of tweets and replies by Adam Donenfeld, a security researcher. If you have checked the security content of iOS 10.3.2 as posted by Apple, the name Adam Donenfeld is familiar as he was credited for in the security log, in particular, the AVEVideoEncoder and IOSurface.

Here's what Adam posted on his Twitter, "#Apple fixed 8 kernel privilege escalation bugs I sent them. A privilege escalation exploit is already written. It will be released during conferences' season in the summer. You may want to save SHSH blobs :) #ZIMPERIUM #HITBGSEC."

The jailbreak community on Reddit has come alive with this revelation made by Adam. Moreover, many believed that since there was a video presentation showing a jailbroken iPhone 7 running iOS 10.3.1 and not just some bunch of craps, there could be a possibility that a release might happen in the coming weeks.

One member suggested staying in the lowest possible version of iOS that is still covered by the supposed jailbreak tool. As a long time jailbreaker, this Reddit member believes this is how the process of jailbreak works.

Others suggested that while Apple has not removed the option to downgrade to iOS 10.3.1, to stick with this more stable iOS version and backup its SHSH blobs.

In this way, Apple users are able to capitalize on the latest updates, bug fixes among other features of iOS 10.3.1 yet will still be able to jailbreak once the jailbreak tool is released.
