Let’s see about his history.
Actually, iH8sn0w motivates others jailbreak teams, when they are in trouble. Therefore, he is an important person to this field.
iH8sn0w’s jailbreak involving for iOS 10 & iOS 11
iH8sn0w successfully demonstrated iOS 10 jailbreak using the first beta version of it. He used the iPhone 5C to complete it. iH8sn0w hinted to other jailbreak developers the possibility of iOS 10 jailbreak with this demonstration. However iH8sn0w did not release any jailbreak tool for iOS 10. Here is the confirmed video of iH8sn0w iOS for 10/10.0.1 Jailbreaks.
The previous jailbreak demonstrations of iH8sn0w
Every time jailbreak tool’s developers are having trouble finding a method to release JB tool, iH8sn0w helps them directly or indirectly. Here is an example.
When Apple killed iOS 9 and iOS 8.1 jailbreak, he was directly to find the JB method. For the first time, Apple introduced Rootless Jailbreak to prevent the jailbreak as a security update from iOS 9 version. At that point, all the jailbreak tool developers failed to find a method, except the iH8sn0w. He demonstrated it on 10th September 2015 & released a video too. Then Pangu and TaiG got his method to find their own jailbreak tool. Pangu released iOS 9 Jailbreak. TaiG released iOS 8.1.1 Jailbreak. So, because of the iH8sn0w, we had these two jailbreaks.
Here is the iH8sn0w iOS 8.1.1 jailbreak demonstration video.
