Apple stops signing iOS 10.3.3 and iOS 11.0 Firmware

Since newer versions are upon us, Apple has stopped signing iOS 10.3.3 and iOS 11.0. Here’s why this is bad news for the jailbreak community.

Why did Apple stop signing iOS 10.3.3 and iOS 11.0?

The closing of the signing window of iOS 10.3.3 was always going to happen no matter what.

However, Apple closing the signing window of iOS 11.0 does come off as a surprise since this version is still rather fresh.

I believe this may have something to do with the annoying errors present in the very first build. Since iOS 11.0.1 and 11.0.2 fix a lot of such errors, it’s better that users update directly to this version.

Anyone who is still using iOS 10 can now only upgrade to iOS 11.0.1 or 11.0.2.

You must hurry up since it’s only a matter of few days that Apple will close the signing window of these versions as well. After a week or so, you will only be able to update to iOS 11.1 as it’s already in beta.

Why is this bad news for the jailbreak scene?

This is very bad for the jailbreak scene because you will no longer be able to downgrade to iOS 10.2. Downgrading to this version is very important since it’s the last firmware that is compatible with yalu102 jailbreak.

Since iOS 10.3.3’s SEP is compatible with iOS 10.2, you can only use that to downgrade with Future Restore. If you try to use any other version, Future Restore will throw an error.

Moreover, iOS 11’s SEP is no longer compatible with iOS 10.2 so there’s no point in downgrading.

Just as I predicted, Adam Donenfeld’s ziVA and Google Project Zero’s triple_fetch exploit have now gone down the drain. If you are still sitting on iOS 10.3.3, it’s high time you upgrade your device to iOS 11.0.2.
