Recently, Apple starting signing i OS 11.1.2, which isn’t exactly surprising based on the fact that 11.2.1 is now the most recent public release.
Apple has kept up to date with the current goings-on in the jailbreaking community, and the recent information regarding the impending release of an i OS 11.1.2 jailbreak has pushed them into action.
That’s not to say things don’t go wrong, and it might surprise you to learn there’s actually a “right way” to go about doing this.
Here’s how to remove your jailbreak and restore stock i OS to your i Phone, i Pad or i Pod Touch.
Once you choose i OS 11 you have to wait until a compatible jailbreak becomes available. It can take several minutes because the package can be over 2 GB large.
More to the point, most i OS software updates modify your hardware’s baseband version, which means if you’re dependent on your jailbreak for an unlock, you will lose your unlock when you finally do upgrade.
Jailbroken i OS firmware can run riot accessing different parts of the filesystem usually only reserved for apps and system components.
If a tweak you were using has been storing data in an unorthodox place, and you create a backup of this data, when you restore the phone you might never be able to access (or delete) said data again.
Updating your device to i OS 11 will instantly wipe your jailbreak along with all the tweaks that you installed on your i Phone, i Pad or i Pod touch.
More, Apple has recently stopped signing i OS 10.3.3, which means that you can’t downgrade to i OS 10 and jailbreak back.
Important: Please backup your i OS device before proceeding with this update! Fact: At the time of writing, i OS 11.0.2 is the most recent Software Update available for your i Phone and i Pad.
