Unrestr1ct0r – Apple File Conduit 2 alternative for iOS 11

Since Saurik is yet to release a jailbreak, developers have started updating his core packages for iOS 11. You can download a new alternative to Apple File Conduit 2 for iOS 11 below.

What is Unrestr1ct0r?

Unrestr1ct0r is an Apple File Conduit 2 alternative for iOS 11. It is developed by hacker Jake James.

For the uninitiated, Apple File Conduit or AFC allows your computer to access your device’s root filesystem. You can then make use of utilities like iFunBox to install music, wallpapers, etc.


Apple File Conduit was originally a tweak by Saurik. He usually pushes an update once Apple rolls out a major firmware upgrade.

However, there have been quite a few unexpected events that have delayed its release further.

  • Warning – I highly recommend not to install Unrestr1ct0r at this stage unless you really require this functionality. Wait for an update to drop and then install.


  • An iPhone, iPad, or iPod running iOS 11-11.1.2
  • Electra jailbreak
  • Cydia
  • iFunBox

How to install Unrestr1ct0r on iOS 11-11.1.2  

Step 1 Open Cydia.

Step 2 Downgrade Link Identity Editor (ldid) to version 2.0.0. This step is essential because Coolstar’s latest version of ldid is broken. Going back to a previous version will fix this issue.

Step 3 Reinstall jtool Installer if it’s present on your device. If it isn’t, simply skip this step.

Step 4 Your device is now ready to install the main package. Go to Sources and tap on Edit > Add.

Step 5 Add Jake’s repository to Cydia – jakeashacks.com/cydia and install the following package.

Step 6 Launch iFunBox or any other utility to get unfettered access your root filesystem. Remember, these tools will still detect your device is “jailed” state, not in “jailbreak” state.

The reason behind this is that these tools can only detect the original Apple File Conduit tweak by Saurik.

Since you are using Unrestr1ct0r (an alternative version), you will get that message but you will still be able to install anything on your device.
