Although there are methods to install third-party apps without jailbreak, the security implemented by Apple in its software platform has greatly hindered the unlocking of the iOS kernel. Progress in this regard has been scarce. We are facing a dark phase. However, the security company Alibaba Pandora Labs has just shown that the Untethered Jailbreak is perfectly possible on the iPhone X with iOS 11.2.1.
The difficulty that Apple poses to the "crackers" in their latest versions of iOS has made the Jailbreak take a back seat. Saurik himself -Jay Freeman- developer who designed Cydia, has already stated on several occasions that the security of Apple implemented in its software platform makes it increasingly difficult to jailbreak, to the point that the same Freeman apostille that the Jailbreak has died . However, the latest news says the opposite.
Untethered Jailbreak on an iPhone X with iOS 11.2.1
While there have already been advances in the Jailbreak on the iPhone X at the beginning of November - on that occasion on iOS 11.1.1 - the news launched by Alibaba Pandora Labs is even more notorious since they speak of perfect Jailbreak. Why? Simply because the security company focused on mobile telephony has managed to exploit a vulnerability in the latest official version of iOS 11.2 that not only allows the installation of Cydia, but in turn keeps the changes in the kernel even after restarting the system . It is what we know with Jailbreak Untethered, with the incentive that occurs in turn on the iPhone X with Apple A11 Bionic chip.
The bad news for Jailbreak regulars, at least for now, is that Song Yang; director of the security firm; has indicated that they will not release any tool to the public to achieve the Untethered Jailbreak on the iPhone X with iOS 11.2.1. However, the reading between the lines of their statements can be extracted the possibility that, once Apple is informed to correct the security flaws, the method used will be released.

Similarly, another of the hopes is deposited in the researcher Ian Beer, of the team of security analysts of Google Project Zero, which published this week an xploit of iOS 11.1.
