LiberiOS iOS 11 Jailbreak, Cydia And Substrate: Here’s What You Need To Know
Now that we have LiberiOS iOS 11 / 11.1.2 jailbreak, most of you are asking about Cydia and Cydia Substrate, and rightly so given Cydia Installer is the most popular and easy way to install jailbreak tweaks, and Substrate is the framework which most, if not all, tweaks use.
So Cydia Installer and Cydia Substrate are both essential for most consumers, but why does LiberiOS doesn’t enable or install it by default when jailbreaking the device? Quite simply put, Saurik hasn’t yet updated both with full iOS 11 compatibility.
He is working on them both though as confirmed by him few days ago. It’s important to note that iOS 11 changed a lot of things when it completely dropped support for both 32-bit devices and 32-bit apps. Due to those changes, Substrate needs to be almost rewritten from scratch. Give Saurik some time and I am sure both Cydia and Cydia Substrate will be fully functional on this iOS 11 and iPhone X jailbreak soon.
The hard work of finding vulnerabilities in the Apple’s system, then exploiting them, and then packaging them into a jailbreak and releasing it all to public for free is all done.
Having said this, there are still of course ways of enabling and installing Cydia right now in its current state, but it’s extremely risky thing to do and isn’t recommended unless you are advanced user because you are more likely to mess up something with it, which will require you to restore to latest iOS 11.2/11.2.1 firmware, killing the ability to jailbreak again.
We will of course keep you updated on the state of Cydia and Cydia Substrate for LiberiOS iOS 11.0-11.1.2 jailbreak. Stay tuned to us for more on this.
