With the Webseite racecondition.win you are able to jailbreak iOS 11.3.1. Before you start you should read this post to get a few more informations. Is this tool serious? What does it do and how does it work? Read our post and get everything you should know.
iOS 11.3.1 can be jailbroken (as you know). Coolstar showed with its most recent Electra version that this can be done in a really fast and simple way. To make use of this jailbreak you have to install an .ipa file on your device with a tool like Cydia Impactor (or use one of the many online services that provide presigned versions). If this is too complicated for you or you just want to try something new then you should take a look at this Jailbreak Me version. This jailbreak runs via webkit and ist based on the emptylist exploit from Ian Beer.
Since the project is completely open source we took a closer look at it on GitHub. In the modules directory you find the file called libsploit.ios.1131.modules.js. This file is used for the jailbreak on iOS 11.3.1. It makes use of the exploit CVE-2018-4233 found by Niklas Baumstark from the phoenhex Team (@phoenhex). Together with emptylist, a version for RCE (Remote Code Execution) in Safari and vfs from Ian Beer you have the jailbreak.
Currently this jailbreak only work with iOS 11.3.1 on an iPhone 8 or 8 Plus. Since the project is still in development it is likely that we can expect compatibility for more devices in the feature.
A jailbreak in development: racecondition.win
You should always keep in mind that this jailbreak is still in development. Sem Voigtländer (@userlandkernel) is the developer of this tool and already put lot of effort into this tool. The online Jailbreak Me tool supports the following iOS versions:
- 8.4.1 & 9.3 to 9.3.3 & 11.3.1 (64-bit)
- 3.1.2 bis 4.0.1 & 8.4.1 & 9.1 to 9.3.4 (32-bit)
racecondition.win does not work
If you try to open the page you get at the moment an error and cannot access the page. The developer is aware of this issue and will publish an update in the near feature.
