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.

I’m currently at 11.3.1 and I don’t wanna go up to 11.4. Is there by any means any way to stop my phone from updating to 11.4???? PLEASE HELP
Yes, you can download the tvOS beta profile to block all updates.
How can I keep myself at 11.3.1 without my iPhone X doing auto update on the software to 11.4? I already deleted the update for 11.4 about 6 days ago.PLEASE BELP
I tried to Restore from 11.0 to 11.3.1, but my iPhone 8 Plus is Stuck in Recovery mode (itunes Icon), i tried Mac and windows, but still no luck, kindly help me to get out of it….
Try Reiboot software.
I really appreciate your site!
I’m running iOS 10.1.1 on a Jailbroken iPhone 7 Plus, and would gladly upgrade, IF the jailbreak proves, over time, to be stable.
Can I just keep my SHSH blobs and use FutureRestore when the jailbreak drops and is tested?
Also, there have been reports that iOS 11.3 corrupts the iPhone 7 Plus microphone:
Was this ever resolved?
Blessings, and thank you!
Hello, Richard. It’s best to stay on iOS 11.1.2 for now and let other users confirm the reliability of iOS 11.3.1. I believe this bug was fixed in iOS 11.3.1 but I’m not sure.
Thank you so much for your response!
Because I’m on iOS 10.1.1, will it be possible to use FutureRestore to go to iOS 11.3.1, or do I have to be on iOS 11?
No, you will be able to update from iOS 10.1.1 firmware just fine. Welcome :).
Shift upgrade or shift restore?
If you are not jailbroken, just update.
No im not unfortunately anymore, im on 11.2.1 and want to go to 11.3.1 to be sure i can JB again!!!!
Ready nowww 11.3.1 when u said is coming.. ?! 😬😬😬
how can i get fresh 11.3.1 firmware
Using iTunes. Download the IPSW from ipsw.me and shift+restore.
I am jailbroken on ios 11.1.2 Electra, can you tell me a way to completely unjailbreak and clean up all the jailbreak trace files, so that i can do a fresh install of 11.3.1
A fresh restore will remove all files so don’t worry about that.
Thank you, i did that, all good now.
So, is somewhere a list of compatible devices?
All devices are supported.
I can’t even update I don’t have a computer with internet for 1 week any workarounds?
Unfortunately, there’s no to restore without a PC to this version.
I have a pc just without Internet
And the bug must be backward compatible
It’s not backward compatible as far as I know.
Should i upgrade to ios 11.3.1 on my iphone or stay on 11.0.3?
For now i’m running on ios 11.0.3 and using electra 1.0.4
Stay where you are and save SHSH.
