iOS 11.3 Jailbreak With Cydia Installed Achieved; SparkZheng Confirms
After the iOS 11.3 vulnerability has been released to the public, good news has arrived. Ming Zheng, also known as SparkZheng confirms that he was able to successfully come up with an iOS 11.3 jailbreak.
According to iPhone Hacks, Zheng who is a Chinese security researcher tweeted “This time. It’s a real JB now” and has posted two screenshots. The first one is showing Cydia on a jailbroken iPhone’s Home screen. Meanwhile, the second one appears to reveal that he was able to install the Cydia application after obtaining the shell access.
But before the jailbreak community gets really excited, it is perhaps still early days since Zheng still has to create an iOS 10.3 jailbreak tool which can be made available to the public. But then, the good news is that it’s just a matter of time for the much-anticipated iOS 11.3 jailbreak tool to be released.
It appears that the vulnerabilities utilized by Zheng to jailbreak iOS 11.3 have been patched in iOS 11.3.1. This is because he has only stated obtaining access to iOS 11.3 root shell in the former tweet.
In case your device is in iOS 11.3 or lower, then you must stay where you are and elude upgrading to iOS 11.3.1. It is also worth mentioning that Apple has stopped signing for the iOS 11.3, thus you won’t be able to downgrade to iOS 11.3 once you already updated to iOS 11.3.1. It took a very long time for another jailbreak to be released, thus the jailbreak community can’t wait to see when Zheng’s iOS 11.3 jailbreak will be made public. This is your chance so it’s advised that you stay at iOS 11.3 and wait for a bit.
