More than a month ago, we have seen three iPhones running jailbroken iOS 10.3.2 and iOS 11 Beta version proving once and for all that the new Apple File System (APFS) has its own flaws. Yet after five weeks of waiting, it remains unclear whether a jailbreak tool will be released, or not.

Jailbreak Tool for iOS 10.3.2 Exists

As iSportsTimes reported back in June, KeenLab of Tencent senior security researcher Liang Chen showed attendees of the Mobile Securities Conference (MOSEC) 2017 event that they were able to jailbreak iOS 10.3.2 and iOS 11. As proof, he showed the crowd an iPhone 6 running a jailbroken iOS 10.3.2, an iPhone 7 running a jailbroken iOS 11 betas 2, and a jailbroken iOS 10.3.2 running on iPhone 7.

Not more than a week following iOS 10.3.2 and iOS 11 jailbreak revelation, a video demonstration was released on YouTube. This video tutorial shows the step-by-step process of jailbreaking iOS 10.3.2.

Unfortunately, while there was a link provided in the comment section, the said jailbreak tool was never mentioned to be directly coming from KeenLab. much less Liang Chen himself. Thus, the integrity of the so-called "jailbreak tool" remains questionable.

Glimmers of Hope

It seems like one really knows as to when the jailbreak tool for iOS 10.3.2 will be released. As iSportsTimes reported previously, while it is possible now to jailbreak iOS 10.3.2, there is no guarantee that a jailbreak tool will be released for the public to download and use.

However, there are still a couple of reasons why the Apple community remains hopeful that a jailbreak tool will be released sometime soon. Marco Grassi, also a senior security researcher at KeenLab, is one of them.

Grassi posted a picture on Twitter showing the three jailbroken iPhones. His connection with hacker Luca Todesco remains to be seen whether it leads to another jailbreak tool, or not.

This is also the reason why many Apple device owners still have not upgraded their iPhones, iPads and iPad Touch to the latest mobile operating system. The reason is simple - there is no known jailbreak yet for the newly released iOS 10.3.3.
