    It has been a long time since I have been in the JB scene, so I am going to consider myself a newbie while I refresh my memory and see how things have changed if they have. I am currently on IOS 11.2.2, is it possible to update to 12.1.2 for the the latest Jailbreak IOS option? Or is it too late?

    If it is, do I download the IOS (recommended safe link please) and follow the steps as it was in the past for picking the ipsw file?

    If it is not possible to update to the IOS 12.1.2 is there a stable JB for the IOS 11.2.2? If so can I get a link to the recommended how too.

    Thank you for your advice in advance

    Iphone 7 Plus
    Version 11.2.2

    It is to late to upgrade your IOS. You can use Unc0ver JB on your version of 11.2.2. Download the latest ipa and install it with Cydia Impactor. After you JB download ReProvision from repo http://repo.incendo.ws in Cydia so it will auto resign for you. Make sure you do not have a software update sitting in your storage. If so, delete it. Before tapping on the JB U0 app, you have to trust/verify in general settings profiles. After that put your phone in airplane mode and then tap the JB. After it resprings you should be Jailbroken and you can turn airplane mode off. https://github.com/pwn20wndstuff/Undecimus/releases

    I'm just going to deal with this part.

    If the last jailbreak you were on was pre-iOS 9.2 then you are going to find a significant change.

    First off, jailbreaking is no longer fully-untethered. It's what is now referred to as semi-untethered. You boot your device stock and then use a jailbreak app to jailbreak. You have to do this every time you reboot.

    But to even get that far you have to sideload the app using Cydia Impactor. That requires an Apple ID. If you use a developer account then you're fine for a year. If you use your own account then there is a seven day clock during which the authorization is good.

    If you jailbreak and then do not reboot your phone until seven days or more later you will need to reload the app using Cydia Impactor.

    One other thing that has changed is the jailbreak culture. A lot of devs have left, either due to hazing by trolls or better money elsewhere. The state of tweak development is such that a lot of former tweaks have died off and their functionality has not been replaced by new tweaks. An example of this is Anchor and Gridlock. As of iOS 10, there is no real way to put your icons anywhere on your homescreen. There is Boxy 3, but that's a comprehensive theming tweak and icon placement is just one part of that tweak.

    So, we've lost some of the basic things we had and no one new is working on them.

    Jailbreaking isn't like it used to be.

    That is what ReProvision is for. It automatically re-signs for you. No need to use Cydia Impactor again

    I disagree about no one new is working on them. I have most every tweak and more that I had used prior. New devs are posting new tweaks everyday and older tweaks are getting updated for IOS 12. The new JB's are very stable. It's worth it to give the new jailbreak a try.

    Hadn't heard about that. I assume it works for iOS 12? How about iOS 10 and iOS 9.3.5?


    I won't deny new stuff is being worked on, but I have a long memory.

    I'll try and keep it short though.

    BiteSMS? Who is working on that?
    Dashboard X? That I know of, this was abandoned entirely as of iOS 7.
    Anchor?
    Mail Enhancer Pro? Dead since iOS 7.
    Netatalk? Dead since iOS 9.

    That's just five I can name off the top of my head. No one is working on alternatives. Sure there's some replacements, such as Asteroid for Forecast, etc.

    I have four jailbroken iPhones and a jailbroken iPad. Between them that's iOS 9.0.2, iOS 9.3.5, iOS 7.1.2, iOS 10.3.3 and iOS 12.1. The iPhone on 9.0.2 has over 200 tweaks installed, several of which do not have equivalents on iOS 10 and iOS 12.

    I'm not saying jailbreaking is dying, I'm just saying it's not like it used to be.

    Yes, it works for all of those. The repo is http://repo.incendo.ws you want to give it a try. Go into settings>advanced>change the Check Expiry Times to every other day to save on battery
