File Explorer demonstrated running on iPhone X on iOS 11.1.2

The jailbreak community is making great strides and there’s being progress being made on iOS 11. A new developer has just demonstrated

File Explorer can now run on iPhone X

A new developer who goes by the name, Joniand, has developed a file explorer for iPhone X.

He utilized George Dan’s async_awake-fun project with necessary modifications. He actually merged a file explorer with read/write permissions with this exploit.

Here’s the video demonstration Joniand uploaded on Youtube.

This file explorer allows you to perform the following actions –

  • Access all system files in the root filesystem
  • Edit system and text-based files

In a strange twist of events, another developer also got a file explorer working on iOS 11.1.2 at the same time. Here’s a screenshot of his iPhone.

How is this useful?

As you already know, Apple is still signing iOS 10.3.3 via OTA for A7 devices. This means you can downgrade your A7 device by OTA spoofing.

To use the OTA spoofing technique, you must edit your systemversion.plist file to trick Apple into thinking you are on a lower version.

Once the changes are applied, iOS will notify you about a new OTA update (iOS 10.3.3).

You can then easily downgrade your device without iTunes, Future Restore, or even SHSH Blobs.

Where can I download it?

Update – You can now download an even more powerful alternative, FilzaJailed.

Evidently, this file explorer is quite “barebones” at the moment but it’s still a great start. The main reason behind this is that the developer is inexperienced in C and is a web developer.

This is why the developer will not be releasing an IPA file because it can lead to issues. Some users did try the resolution change trick with Ian’s exploit and were forced to restore.

With that being said, the developer is still working on a stable version. It will be ready in a few weeks and released to the public in the form of an IPA file.
