With an iOS 11.3.1 jailbreak looming up on the horizon, preparing your device beforehand will surely pay dividends down the road. Here are three tips for all jailbreak users who want an iOS 11.3.1 jailbreak.

1. Upgrade/downgrade to iOS 11.3.1
Upgrading or downgrading to iOS 11.3.1 should be your number one priority right now. Staying on the right version is essential if you want a jailbreak.
Although Ian Beer’s exploit will likely work on iOS 11.3 and below versions, the hacker didn’t mention the full compatibility range anywhere.
Therefore, it makes sense to stay on iOS 11.3.1 firmware, at least for the time being.
If you updated to iOS 11.3.1 via OTA, fire up iTunes and upgrade (shift + Update) using the IPSW firmware file while there’s still time. Apple will probably stop signing iOS 11.3.1 come June 4.
If you already have a jailbreak, you must restore (shift + Restore), not upgrade, using iTunes. Updating your iPhone or iPad may cause issues in the future.
I have never experienced any problems with updating but it’s always good to stay on the safe side.
2. Save SHSH Blobs
SHSH Blobs are still relevant and will allow you to upgrade to iOS 11.3.1 once a jailbreak drops in the future. Check this tutorial out if you don’t know how to save blobs.
With that being said, SHSH Blobs are essentially useless for iPhone X users.
Even if you use FutureRestore somewhere down the line, your Face ID will break and it will stop working.
If you happen to own an iPhone X, you can upgrade to iOS 11.3.1 right now or stay on iOS 11.1.2 or below and use Electra jailbreak.
