    I have been out of the iPhone loop awhile, currently on the Pixel 2 XL, and have an upgrade due, and can get the iPhone X for cheap, but I would only get one if it can be Jailbreaked.

    Can a brand new iPhone X be JB ? Not sure what version iOS they ship with in the box ? And which iOS versions are JB compatible ? And is the current JB untethered ?

    Thanks

    No jailbreak after iOS 11.1.2 and it is semi-untethered.

    Oh 11.1.2, that sounds old and doubtful phones even ship with that ?

    What happened to the good old days of Jailbreaking ? Full untethered on the latest firmware. I thought the iPhone X would have brought back a ton of development.

    Oh well, Android I stay.

    It's from iOS becoming a lot more secure over the years and JB developers are having a hard time making newer JB's for iOS 11. (this is my guess)

    What is the benefit anymore to jailbreak?

    Most of those features are native now.

    I use iBlacklist to actually block calls. Unlike iOS, iBlacklist actually prevents the call from even completing. iOS simply sends a blocked caller to voicemail where the message ends up in a blocked messages folder in visual voicemail. There was a time when I got a new phone number and it was previously owned by a hooker. I started getting all her calls immediately asking if certain amounts of cash were ok and what time she could meet up with the caller. I used iBlacklist to immediately send them a text telling them this was a new number for me and whoever they were looking for no longer owned the number. The calls and texts stopped in a week.

    I use 3G Unrestrictor to get around Apple stupid download restriction if it is over 200MB.

    I use NoPromosTwitter to block all the ads in Twitter and get rid of the in case you missed it sections. I use No Promos Appstore to get rid of the ads in the app store.

    I use AppAdmin to use older versions of apps that still include useful features that Apple doesn't allow such as with Adguard and it's ability to block ads in apps using a VPN.

    I use Instagram ++ to be able to download any picture or video posted by anyone.

    I use NoMoreStories to get rid of FaceBook stories.

    I also use LocationFaker. It can make me appear as if I am anywhere in the world using FaceBook, Twitter or any app that wants to use my location. I've had people convinced I was visiting Russia.

    I would absolutely love to jailbreak if only to enable input during animations or cancel them altogether.

    My iPhone blocks almost every follow-up input unless I stop and wait a moment between each. Sad in 2018 this is the state of things.

    Jailbreaking gives you the ability to install any software you want. Yes a lot of jailbreak tweaks in the past became part of the OS but new software that does different things can, will, and has came into existence.
