iOS 10.3.3 jailbreak teased by Tihmstar

There have been a couple of developments for iOS 10.3.3 jailbreak exploits from different authors recently. The latest came from Tihmstar who showed off a screenshot of his work.

Tihmstar on Sunday, December 17 took Twitter to tease the possible arrival of iOS 10.3.3 jailbreak soon through a photo. He never said anything but let the photo speak for itself.

From the looks of it, an iPhone 5 running Cydia displays the iOS version number of the device. Although Tihmstar did not pin down anything specific, this prompted speculations that iOS 10.3.3 is well on its way.

Since the jailbreak is performed on an iPhone 5, it is most likely coming to all 32-bit devices only which means newer phones like iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus and iPhone X will not be eligible once the jailbreak is materialised.

After the developer posted the photo, his tweet has been flooded with aggressive questions from the community, including the release of iOS 11 jailbreak. He asked people to be patient with the developments and take the process one step at a time.

Tihmstar admitted that he still has a lot of work to do for the iOS 10.3.3 jailbreak.

In the meantime, Apple has already stopped signing the iOS 11.1.2 which makes downgrading from a higher version impossible. Also, Alibaba Pandora Labs has reported that its team was able to jailbreak iOS 11.2.1 on iPhone X. However, they do not intend to release it to the public.
