With the release of the iOS 11.2.1 download [ext link], Apple is pushing on with their bid to stop two things , bugs from running rife through the iOS firmware and jailbreaking. They are certainly keeping up with the first one, fixing bugs as quickly as they happen and, if the last year is anything to go by, they are succeeding at stopping jailbreaking in its tracks. iOS 10 only produced Yalu jailbreak for 64-bit devices, leaving many without Cydia and iOS 11 isn’t looking to be any different. The constant updates from Apple are certainly making things difficult for iOS 11.2.1 jailbreak [ext link] developers right now even though we are aware that jailbreaks are not a given.

There isn’t any doubt that some developers have been trying and we have seen a few jailbreaks talked about. Sadly, despite raising our hopes, none of them have come to anything so the only hope we have is that Luca Todesco will come up with an update for Yalu Jailbreak. It is possible that a new jailbreak development team will just appear but anything that a new team does produce will need to be fully tested first before any of us can use it.

We can also hope that, with iOS 11 settled in, an iOS 10 jailbreak could be produced, working on an exploit that Apple has neglected to kill off with their many updates. Not all iOS users are on iOS 11 , some preferred not to update and others can’t because their devices won’t support it. In short, no jailbreak and no news of one right now but we always have hope.
iOS 11.2.1 Jailbreak Alternatives :
Over the last few months, we have seen no end of app installers, each one trying to replace Cydia. While they are never going to do that, they can offer us a little of what we are missing, a few Cydia tweaks and lots of other content to help out those who are not in a position to jailbreak right now. They don’t offer everything from Cydia, but they are a great help while we wait for new jailbreaks so have a look at these, both of which have support for iOS 11.2.1:
Mojo Installer is a decent alternative, offering a certain amount of Cydia content and modified apps all easily accessible through a user-friendly interface. A search feature lets you find what you are looking for easily and there is a Package History feature that lets you keep track of everything you downloaded. Once installed you do not need a Wi-Fi connection to run Mojo so find out more information and get a Mojo Installer guide at the given link.
FlekStore provides free access to a very large number of apps, tweaks and premium content, all for free. You can find your favorite Cydia apps, like vShare and AirShou, lots of Cydia tweaks, plenty of paid app store content for free and some modified apps as well but what makes FlekStore different is that you can create your own apps and add them to the store for others to use. Find out how you can download FlekStore by clicking the given link
While the best option is always to jailbreak, these installers are great interim solutions and can give you a little of what Cydia can’t at the moment so download them and let us know what you think of them and, for more jailbreak news, you can follow us on Facebook .
