A working iOS 10.1.1 jailbreak is not going to be released any time soon, but it is now known that such jailbreak is possible. A well-known iOS hacker, Luca Todesco, recently posted a picture online that shows his iPhone 7 jailbroken on iOS 10.1.1.

The last jailbreak friendly version of iOS is iOS 9.3.3, and the tool was released by the Pangu team. Several users of iOS 10 on iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are waiting for a jailbreak to be released.

iOS 10.1.1 Jailbreak

Apple released iOS 10.1.1 recently to the public with a few bug fixes for the Health app. For those waiting to jailbreak their iOS devices running on iOS 10.1.1, they will be happy to know that it is possible. However, Luca Todesco, the hacker behind the iOS 10.1.1 jailbreak, will not release the tool.

Recently, a video was posted on Reddit that showed a working iOS 10.1 jailbreak, but it was widely believed to be fake. Even the creator of Cydia, Saurik, commented that the video is probably fake.

Instead, it can be expected that the jailbreak teams such as Pangu will come up with a working jailbreak for iOS 10.1.1. It is known that several teams are currently working on bringing a fully working iOS 10 jailbreak to the public. Several video demos have been posted online as proof.

Jailbreak Demo

This is the first proof for a working iOS 10.1.1 jailbreak, as the hacker posted a picture of his iPhone 7 running Cydia on Twitter. According to him, the jailbreak will also work on the previous iOS 10.1 firmware.

Release Date For iOS 10.1.1 Jailbreak

As mentioned earlier, Luca Todesco will not release this jailbreak for the public. This isn't the first time he is doing so. Previously, he teased jailbreaks for other iOS firmware versions, but did not release anything for the public.

It is possible that a working iOS 10.1.1 jailbreak may be released by another team, but there is no ETA yet. Meanwhile, Apple has started to seed iOS 10.2 beta to registered developers.
