Extra_Recipe_Extra_Bug KASLR Bypass for iOS 11.2.6 | KASLR No Longer A Problem in iOS 11.2.6
KASLR is actually a protective measure implemented by Apple and the extra_recipe_extra_bug tool is able to successfully bypass KASLR for iOS 11.2.6. Developed by Norwegian security researcher John Akerblom, the tool has paved way to new hopes for the development of a successful jailbreak for iOS 11.2.6.
In the coding for iOS 11.2.6, Apple was meant to add a value two times to a function. However, instead of doing this, the engineers at Apple actually added an unverified value to the respective function. Consequently, there was a heap overflow. On this overflow the extra_recipe_extra_bug does its work and weaves magic.
If you are wondering from where the name of this KASLR Bypass tool comes from then let me clear that out for you. It is an extension of the extra_recipe jailbreak tool, developed by Xerub, for iOS 10-10.1.1 firmware. However, please don’t relate this KASLR Bypass tool with the jailbreak tool.
The original code written in this jailbreak tool is quite helpful in the development of extra_recipe_extra_bug for a modern iOS version like 11.2.6.
If you want to download the Xcode project file of extra_recipe_extra_bug you can download it from here.
