In today's video, we are discussing the latest news about a project that is as ambitious as it sounds. An #iOS 11.3.1 Safari-based #Jailbreak which takes advantage of the CVE-2018-4233 WebKit exploit and empty_list kernel exploit (CVE-2018-4243) by Ian Beer of Google Project Zero. The project created and maintained by Sem Voigtländer aims to be able to jailbreak other iOS versions as well. That is iOS 8.4.1, 9.3 up to 9.3.3 & 11.3.1 (64-bit), though for the moment iOS 11.3.1 is supported only on iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, and iOS 3.1.2 up to 4.0.1 & 8.4.1 and 9.1 up to 9.3.4 (32-bit).
As you can see, the project is quite big targeting a very wide range of iOS versions. The project is still not done, but the development seems to be on-going. I was recently asked on Twitter to check whether the project is legitimate or not and as far as I can tell, it is. There are missing pieces here and there before this can be a mainstream #Safari based jailbreak, but it is not very far either.
For the moment, as far as I can see from the code and the available project files, it doesn't target Electra but rootlessJB, another iOS 11.3.x Jailbreak which doesn't need a remount for the ROOT File System. I did not see any notes by Sem in the documentation that would tell Electra will not be supported so I think it is just a matter of more testing / developing. The project is clearly not ready for prime time but it is an ambitious project which deserves to be known. Once done, this jailbreak would allow one to perform it without Cydia Impactor, IPA files, a computer or re-signing every 7 days, not untethered but the second best.
