Security researcher Adam Donenfeld reveals ZiVa exploit now runs on 64-bit devices running iOS 10.3.1. But there's a catch.

Less than a week after the news on iPhone X being jailbroken, most recent development in the backend reveals another exciting progress in the jailbreak landscape.

Zimperium security researcher Adam Donenfeld took Twitter on Tuesday, November 21 to announce a bad news. At the end of his tweet though is a silver lining as Donenfeld confirmed that ZiVa exploits now runs on 64-bit devices running iOS 10.3.1.

Back in August, when Donenfeld attended the Hack in the Box conference in Singapore, the infamous exploit finder previously hinted as well on the microblogging website that he might be releasing the exploit very soon "if nothing pops up".

In most recent tweet, he talked about how his exploit is challenged since Apple reordered the cache.

Despite ZiVA working on iOS 10.3.1 devices, Donenfeld is not all-out to declare that jailbreak is possible to be released anytime soon. As a matter of fact, one of his followers asked when to expect it.

But Donenfeld seems to be dodgy in his response.

Even so, fans can cross their fingers and just hope for the best.

However, the exact release date was confirmed.
