In today's video, we're going to discuss the latest iOS 11.4.1 and #iOS 11.4 #Jailbreak news coming from iOS developer tihmstar. He has recently announced that he is working on an exploit that appears to be working on iOS 11.4.1 and lower. He said that he managed to achieve #Kernel Read for the moment, so no writes yet, but his work seems promising. Tihmstar has released multiple iOS Jailbreaks in the past including H3lix, DoubleH3lix, and Etas0nJB, with other developers including siguza.
According to tihmstar, he's not sure if he'll port the exploit to all the supported iOS versions himself (that requires finding the proper offsets and can be done by other developers too in order to help tihmstar), or whether he will port the exploit to iPhones "without a headphone jack", pretty much anything newer than iPhone 6S Plus (iPhone 7 and newer). These devices use KTRR or Kernel Text Read Only Region which is a security module added by Apple starting with iPhone 7 which may need additional work to get an exploit running around it.
All in all, if we take into consideration that Ian Beer also released an iOS 11.4.1 / 11.4 exploit back in October, we quickly realize iOS 11.4.1 is a very good iOS version to stay on if you haven't already updated to iOS 12. If you're still running iOS 11.4 or iOS 11.4.1, I'd recommend staying where you are, but also saving your SHSH2 blobs for iOS 12.x, you never know when you may need them.
