According to Rani :
They have reported these bugs to Apple, and they have fixed it by iOS 11.2.5 update. However, Rani promised to publish more details regarding the research process and technical write up, along with the full exploit source code. He expressed his gratitude to Apple as well as the zLabs team and Nikias Bassen (@pimskeks) for the support throughout the project.
Sandbox escape is essential parts of jailbreak. if they release this as open source code project, definitely jailbreak experts can develop this up to Jailbreak. However we recommend you to follow the below steps to get iOS 11.2 Jailbreak as soon as it released.

Russ Cox’s kernel exploit :
According to rumors :
Security Researcher Russ Cox who works for Google has found the new Kernel Exploit for iOS 11.2. As once Ian beer released iOS 11-iOS 11.1.2 exploit many jailbreak tools arrived for iOS 11, everyone expects it will hit iOS 11.2 Jailbreak using this kernel exploit.
According to Russ Cox Kernel exploit support list, it will work on iPhone 5S and later, iPad Air and later, iPod touch 6 devices running iOS 11.2, iOS 11.2.1 & iOS 11.2.2. Therefore, some jailbreak experts advised you to get ready for iOS 11.2 to iOS 11.2.2 jailbreak.
In addition to that rumors says, Russ Cox did not release the exploit to the public yet and informed via the official Twitter account that he has planned to release the kernel exploit to the public soon.
According to Russ Cox :
However, Russ Cox said he did not release any kernel exploit and he just reported the bugs only. Here is the screenshot of his tweet.
He is absolutely right and we can find that from Apple’s Security content. Apple patched this vulnerability in iOS 11.2.5 which is discovered from iOS 11.2. Here is the Screenshot of Apple’s security content of iOS 11.2.5.
However, there is still the chance to Jailbreak the iOS 11.2 because that bug remains same for the iOS 11.2 versions hence this was patched in iOS 11.2.5.
Whatsoever it is advisable staying on iOS 11.2-iOS 11.2.2 versions than updating to iOS 11.2.5.
Kernel level async_awake exploit :
This tfp0 exploit has discovered by Google security researcher Ian beer for Google’s Project Zero. That exploit released for the iOS 11 and higher versions for the 1st time and many developers released Jailbreak tools for iOS 11 & higher versions using this exploit.
This time many hackers are busy with releasing untethered or Semi-tethered Jailbreak for iOS 11.2 to iOS 11.2.2 using this exploit.

Semi-tethered LiberiOS has released for iOS 11.1.2. Unfortunately, you can only downgrade iOS 11.2.1/ iOS 11.2.2 to iOS 11.2 if you haven't saved your SHSH blobs.

Unfortunately, This may be the most significant disturbance for iOS 11.2.1/ iOS 11.2.2 Jailbreak. Apple just introduced a new Bug Bounty Program who find and Vulnerabilities of iOS.
According to the DMCA laws, Apple can prevent Jailbreaking from the technical end. Apple doesn't hesitate to spend millions of dollars to avoid future jailbreaking offering big cash prizes.
Almost every Public Jailbreak tools are free (donateware) and Hackers cannot earn reasonable money to release jailbreak to the public.
They can easily make big money just selling their exploit to the Apple.
However, This will be the biggest challenge for iOS 11.2.1/ iOS 11.2.2 Jailbreaking.
Also, there are a lot of jailbreak scams for iOS 11.2.2 /iOS 11.2.1. Do not get caught with jailbreak scams. Click here to get complete details.
