Jailbreakers: Avoid iOS 10.3.2 update as Apple Has Made It Even More Difficult to Jailbreak it

Recently Apple released iOS 10.3.2 update after fixing many bugs and security developments.If you have not still upgraded to this bug fix known as iOS 10.3.2 update and still wondering then you should do this immediately according to your situation.

Here are all the scenarios:

iOS 10.3.2 update: Already Jailbroken 

If you’ve already jailbroken then it is recommended that you avoid iOS 10.3.2 update as Apple has fixed quite a few kernel level security exploits in iOS 10.3.2, which will make it even harder to jailbreak iOS 10.3.2 update. You could manually install iOS 10.3.1, but Pangu team has yet to confirm if they plan to release the iOS 10.3.1 jailbreak, so it would still be a risk to install iOS 10.3.1.

On iOS 10.2 or lower but Not Jailbroken

Best rules of jailbreaking and stay where you are to increase your chances of a jailbreak. But since Apple may stop signing iOS 10.3.1, you may want to consider installing iOS 10.3.1 manually and hope that the jailbreak supports iOS 10.3.1 or lower.

On iOS 10.3.1 update

If you’re on iOS 10.3.1, then you may avoid iOS 10.3.2 update. Apple has fixed quite a few kernel level security exploits in iOS 10.3.2 to stay ahead of the cat and mouse game with jailbreakers.

Adam Donenfeld, the security researcher who has been credited for 8 exploits that were fixed in iOS 10.3.2, has revealed plans of releasing the exploits at a security conference in August. Donenfeld has clarified that he does not plan to release an iOS 10.3.1 jailbreak, however, he is happy to help someone who wants to use the exploit to develop a jailbreak for iOS 10.3.1 or lower.

I think our best bet is still the Pangu team, who had demoed a working iOS 10.3.1 jailbreak at a tech conference last month as August would be too late. So if you want to jailbreak your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, then you may want to stay at iOS 10.3.1.

Already Upgraded to iOS 10.3.2

If you’ve upgraded to iOS 10.3.2 then you may want to downgrade from iOS 10.3.2 to iOS 10.3.1 to improve your chances of a jailbreak. Apple is still signing iOS 10.3.1, so you can still downgrade back from iOS 10.3.2 to iOS 10.3.1.

It is also a good idea to save the SHSH blobs as Apple is still signing iOS 10.3.1 if you haven’t done so already

While we love jailbreaking, security is also very im.portant to us, so I would also like to highlight the risks of staying on iOS 10.3.1 or lower, it also exposes you to the exploits that have been patched in iOS 10.3.2. So you need to weigh the pros and cons, though we are yet to hear a case where they have been used to target iOS users.
