How to update jailbroken iPhone to iOS 11!

If you own a jailbroken iPhone or iPad you won’t be able to update to iOS 11 over-the-air. That’s because latest jailbreaks intentionally disable the OTA update feature in order to prevent users from accidentally upgrading to the latest iOS version, thus losing the jailbreak. However, if you want to step up to the 11th iOS generation you have to use iTunes. The process pretty straightforward and explained in the step-by-step tutorial provided below.

Before, proceeding with the upgrade you have to be aware that there currently isn’t any iOS 11 jailbreak available. Updating your device to iOS 11 will instantly wipe your jailbreak along with all the tweaks that you installed on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. More, Apple has recently stopped signing iOS 10.3.3, which means that you can’t downgrade to iOS 10 and jailbreak back. Once you choose iOS 11 you have to wait until a compatible jailbreak becomes available.
