    iOS 11.3 doesn't have a jailbreak for it yet. I doubt it'll get one in the future either, Apple's cracking down on jailbreaking and ruining our fun.

    11.3 is jailbreakable, but the jailbreak will probably never be released. One jailbreak developer, I think, indicated that he was going to hold off on releasing his info for an 11.3 jailbreak until iOS 12 was out in order to see if the necessary vulnerability had been patched.

    Well, we hope very soon. The vulnerability will be released soon, I understand. Coolstar has offered to develop his Electra jailbreak for A10 and A11 devices if he can get those models to develop on.

    Yeah it even says it on his website that it’s coming soon. And he just bought an iPhone X.

    I tend to agree, but Saurik also said "soon."

    Apple has always been cracking down on jailbreaking. But I don't believe this holds as much truth anymore.

    For starters, Apple's policy against repairing or replacing jailbroken devices changed about 3-4 years ago. You don't have to hide your jailbreak anymore because now the Apple genius has to prove that your JB caused the issue before they can deny you. The worst they can do now is ask you to restore.

    Second, a lot of people who used to jailbreak to get one specific feature aren't doing that anymore because Apple now offers that feature. I often argue that what Apple offers is watered down and that people are willing to settle for that garbage as a feature, but that's a different argument.

    Third is money. All Apple really had to do to combat jailbreaking was put out bug bounties. There is money in reporting bugs to Apple. There is minimal money and a lot of aggravation in preparing and releasing a public jailbreak.

    This has all added up to reduce the amount of people who jailbreak. A lot of JB devs have also abandoned jailbreaking and what we are left with now then is semi-untethered jailbreaks. The nature of those jailbreaks tend to discourage adoption by those who are thinking of jailbreaking their devices and so the community diminishes.

    But Apple actively combatting jailbreaking? Not anymore. They don't need to now.

    Get on 11.3.1 if on X

    FaceID won’t work with 11.4 SEP and 11.3.1 blobs when 11.3.1 is unsigned

    I just sacrificed 11.1.1 jb for it

    If on a stock version get to 11.3.1 on other devices too before signing window closes

    When Apple gives me the option for a 5-column home screen and dock and the ability to completely turn off the animations (I don't mean reduced motion), then I'll consider not jailbreaking.

    And the less said about the ridiculous intrusive volume hud the better. :D

    I'm pretty much over the whole jailbreaking thing now. I had 2 SEs, a 6+, 7+ and a 8+ and an iPad Pro all on 11.1.2. I jailbroke the two SEs and it's kind of a disappointment. Most of what I used to JB for isn't there for 11.1.2 and when I would check for new tweaks, maybe a handful would come out each week. I upgraded all but the two SEs to 11.3.1 and I'm about ready to upgrade them to the latest. I was getting so tired of not being to update any iPhone to the latest all because I kept hearing the 11.1.2 JB would be amazing. It's not for me anyways.

    I still have a 6+ on the 9.0 JB and a 6S on the 10 JB plus a iPad mini on the 9.0 JB and I rarely even use those devices anymore.

    AT&T has a nice call blocking app that is catching several calls every day and I used to JB to use iBlacklist to block calls. The only thing that still kind of bothers me is Apples stupid 150MB app download limit over my data connection and that limit doesn't exist in the Android side. It was nice to get around that with a JB.

    Hopefully Coolstar gets his x before the signing window closes!

    I’m excited for the first time in a long time because I was able to downgrade before the signing window closed for the first time in over 2 years. The iPhone X is begging for a dark mode plus some home screen tweaks, will be the perfect phone with a jailbreak.

    The only similarity I have to your situation is a 6s+ jailbroken on 9.0.2 as my primary phone.

    But I use that phone and it's JB every day, because it's my primary phone.

    My next phone will not be an iPhone. With the fact that jailbreaks are now sem-untethered, a lot of JB functionality that I used to have since iOS 6 has declined (specifically, BiteSMS is gone) and with Apple locking things down more and more with both iPhone and Mac, my compromise of using Apple devices and then jailbreaking them to use them how I want is no seriously constricted.

    Add in the fact that Apple has not made an iPhone since the iPhone 5 that I have really wanted and it adds up to Android for me later this year.

    But I still have an iPad and several PowerPC Macs so I won't be leaving Apple entirely.

    I updated my iPad Pro too to 11.3.1 from 11.1.1

    A six months of development leap

    Woooo

    I plan on buying the Note 9 on launch day. As for the iPhone, it depends on what they do with whatever phone doesn't have the X design. I like my home button and I don't want a device that relies on face ID to unlock it. I could easily go Android full time since I've been buying the latest Samsung phone every year.

    My jailbreak days are over, I'm just so done with it. I upgraded my 7+ and 8+ to 11.4 shortly after I posted above.

    I won't be back to iPhone for a very long time, if ever.

    Apple's design aesthetic and it's current course with iOS is not to my liking and I anticipate no deviation on Apple's part since their sales figures tell them people are still buying. As long as they do not deviate I won't come back.

    As far as jailbreaking, as long as my iPhone 6s+ holds out I will still be involved. We don't sell our phones so it will just move down.

    But, yeah, for anything new I won't be involved. I have no plans to jailbreak my new iPad, except in one specific instance. If the new JB that drops (or doesn't) for 11.3 is fully untethered then I will jailbreak. But the chances of that happening are very minimal. My iPad is strictly secondary so this concerns me much less.

    You mean Face ID doesn't work with 11.4?

    I mean once 11.3.1 is unsigned, correct

    Apparently you can use 11.3.1 firmware with 11.4 sep it will successfully restore as far as I’m aware Face ID will Just be broken

    It does but there’s no jailbreak for 11.4. Just update to iOS 11.3.1 if you want to jailbreak. Just use a computer with iTunes and downloaded the ispw file and install it.

    If / when there's a jail break for 11.3.1, will it also work on am iphone 6?

    I'm currently jailbroken on ios 10 but would hate to lose it simply due to Consolidation and notification symbols in the task bar.

    Apple bribes hackers not to release jailbreaks so we can’t improve our expensive iPhones we own. I would pay a hacker to have a jailbreak .
