Keen IPA for iOS 11.1 jailbreak

Apple continuously releases iOS 11.1 beta these days. Every beta releases include bug fixing or new features adding. It always makes stable iOS version finally. When comparing iOS 11 betas and iOS 11.1 betas, iOS 11 is the iPhone mobile history’s turning point. Apple has added more than 100 features through iOS 11 betas, and It introduced iPhone X to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Apple with the iOS 11 version. Most of those introduced features already have been used as jailbroken features. So, Jailbreak always raises the value of the iDevice by adding third-party apps.

Jailbreak means removing Apple software restrictions of iDevices to install third-party apps, which is not available in the App store. Even if Apple tries to prevent the jailbreak, it is a legal process. However, it can not apply the same jailbreak process for every device or iOS version. It may vary depending on the device model and the iOS version. When looking at iOS 11.1 jailbreak, it is the same procedure.

So far, the Keen Team is the only developer hinted about the jailbreak possibility of iOS 11.1. However, the Keen Team is done it privately. According to the developer, this method can apply to all the iOS 11.1 beta versions to install third-party apps. This is the second successful attempt of the Keen Team. The First Jailbroken attempt was made showing the possibility of iOS 11 second beta and iOS 10.3.2 at MOSEC 2017.

What is the Keen IPA, and how to use it?

IPA file means iOS application archive file. It fulls of the content of functions or apps. Keen Team made Keen IPA a jailbreak tool targeting only iOS 11.1 beta versions, and It needs to develop more to use for iOS 11.1 version. There are several challenges to be successful for the Keen team to archive jailbreak for iOS 11.1. The main challenge is jailbreak prevention of Apple. Apple always tries to stop the jailbreak by increasing security protection. Apple already has protected iOS 11 version, and it will increase more when it releases iOS 11.1 version.
