What is Spring?
Spring is a new jailbreak that works for iOS 10.3.3, according to its developer. It is developed by a YouTube user, DevelopApple.
Here’s the video DevelopApple uploaded on YouTube.
Unlike other fake jailbreaks, the developer openly mentions the public exploits used in his jailbreak. Here’s the list of exploits that are used in this tool –
- Some code from Luca Todesco’s yalu102
- Other patches
He also claims to publish some new iOS 10.3.3 bugs soon, which obviously sounds very fishy to me.
Why on earth would anyone hand out exploits like candy for iOS 10.3.3, the most secure build of iOS 10 firmware?
3 Reasons why Spring Jailbreak is fake
Adam Donenfeld’s ziVA exploit is compatible only up till iOS 10.3.1. The reason being Adam reported it to Apple and they promptly closed the security vulnerability in iOS 10.3.2.
Therefore, any tool claiming to use an iOS 10.3.1 exploit on iOS 10.3.3 firmware must be a fake.
You will notice how Cydia is redownloaded after jailbreaking. This simply doesn’t happen in a semi-untethered jailbreak. Cydia is always there on your device.

Moreover, the App Switcher clearly uses an older Cydia icon, which was present in iOS 6 and below.
If you watch the video given above, you will notice there’s a cut in the recording at 00:49.
The uploader cleverly replaces the original device with another jailbroken device with Cydia on it and then launches it.
ETA WEN 10.3.3 Jailbreak
At this point, the odds of iOS 11 being jailbroken are a lot higher than someone developing a jailbreak for iOS 10.3.3.
There are many fake tools floating around on the internet. As always, be sure to confirm and just don’t go about installing anything and everything you get your hands on!
