If you often feel tempted to execute commands manually on your iOS device running iOS 11.1.2 or a lower version, you should better go for MTerminal-Jailed app and operate your device just the way you want.
AppleBetas developed the jailed version for MTerminal app that uses same technique as in FilzaJailed that was based on tfp0 exploit known as async_wake. Ian Beer released this exploit and it opened up new options for creating various tweaks and apps.
It really is a useful tool for developers who’re always looking to run the Terminal commands right on their iOS device without even needing SSH for getting all the access they need. Installing MTerminal allows users to access different commands like UICache and chmod which really prove to be handy in getting all things jailbreak. As iOS 11 jailbreak is closing in, this tool can really turn out to be quite useful.
The project takes a couple of works and puts them together into terminal for iOS 11.0 to iOS 11.1.2. The developer actually takes credit on specific parts rather than the original terminal or the entire exploit. The work done by them includes:
- UI changes specific to iOS 11 (screen sizes similar to iPhone X, safe area, some fixes to the keyboard)
- Addition of tfp0 which runs on open
- Turned it to Xcode project (to make debugging easier on the jailed devices)
- Changes to script locationsfor making it work on what we’ve got now (because everything is located in /bootstrap)
It is also admitted by AppleBetas that currently the tool offers limited functionality and runs only basic commands. It’s just the start!
It is now possible to download MTerminal-Jailed IPA file and use Cydia Impactor or Xcode to sideload the app using any of the two methods below:

In recent times, people had started to wonder if jailbreaking is going to die sort of slow death. However, with all the work being done for producing such tools, it’s quite clear that still there are many who are interested in jailbreaking iOS devices and some work is being done in this domain. And, of course, new jailbreaks are certainly on the cards.
