How To Prepare For Upcoming iOS 11.1.2 Jailbreak The Right Way
So, we might be about to welcome a jailbreak into the community which will support iOS 11.1.2.
The key word here is might, but that is a good enough indicator for excitement levels to rise and individuals prepping themselves for its introduction.
The discovery and release of an exploit by Ian Beer means that we could be about to welcome a new iOS 11.1.2 jailbreak into the community. If something does get released, which is likely to happen at some point, then it would support iOS 11.0 to iOS 11.1.2 only, but there is currently no estimated time of arrival for the tool. While there’s no promise of it arriving very soon, it’s important to get your device ready for it early. Here’s what you need to do:
Downgrade To iOS 11.1.2 While You Can
This one may seem like common sense but you can’t jailbreak a device on iOS 11.1.2 until it’s already running that firmware. So, with that in mind, you need to go through the process of downgrading your device to iOS 11.1.2 while you still can. Apple is currently still signing that firmware which means that it is still possible to move to iOS 11.1.2 for upcoming jailbreak.
SHSH2 blobs may feel like something that used to get talked about in the world of jailbreaking many moons ago but it’s still very much a thing. Having those blobs saved will allow you to either downgrade or upgrade to iOS 11.1.2 in the future even if Apple has stopped signing 11.1.2. The said blobs can be easily grabbed by heading to the TSS Saver website at tsssaver.1connan.com. You may need to hurry though as this won’t be possible once Apple stops signing iOS 11.1.2.

Wait Patiently For Jailbreak To Arrive (& don’t annoy the developers)
We still don’t know for definite when exactly is an iOS 11.1.2 jailbreak actually coming, which makes the patience aspect of this preparation a lot more important. As is generally the case in this community, patience is most definitely a virtue, which extends to be sitting comfortably, waiting for a release, and not annoying those involved in the production of the jailbreak with consistent demands for time expectations and information about whatever is going to be released. If you find yourself wanting to be part of the “wen jb eta” or “eta son” brigade, then it’s time to rethink your strategy. The exploit for iOS 11.1.2 is here already thanks to Ian Beer. All we need is someone to package it in an easy-to-use tool for everyone to use and enjoy.
