iOS 11.3 jailbreak by Alibaba security researcher with Cydia. A Chinese hacker and security researcher named Min Zheng got amazing skill set as he has ability to successfully jailbreak iOS 11.3 by installing Cydia.
In recent past, Zheng had showed an ability to obtain root shell right of entry on the platform, however now his recent tweet demonstrates that he was capable to achieve read and write access to jailbreak iOS 11.3 and install Cydia.
On the other hand, it’s good to know that as a security researcher for Alibaba, his keen interest is more in testing and increasing security rather than blustering operating systems wide open and letting people to jailbreak iOS 11.3 at will. Moreover, Zheng is fully assisting Apple when it comes to patching out the issues.
Well, now it’s clear and confirmed that jailbreaking community can install Cydia. All they need to do is to find out the solution on their own rather than with the help of Zheng. Several fixes from Apple will come in a patch, and if they decide not to install that patch they can effort on the capability to jailbreak iOS 11.3.

Zheng tweeted with two screenshots, one with Cydia running on the iPhone home screen and also a picture with root shell access showing the reality of Cydia.app in the /Applications folder.
His tweet says,
“This time. It’s a real JB now”
It confirms that Zheng was able to get around some of the problems the community was suffering in the past and in fact install Cydia on the device.
Apart from exciting factor that there is ability exists to jailbreak iOS 11.3, it’s significant to keep prospect in check
Despite the fact that jailbreak developers may be talented to streamline the process moving forward, the truth that Zheng is cooperating with Apple rather than with the jailbreaking community is surely going to build the process take longer and it will make it even trickier for moving forward into new builds of the OS.
Possibility are there that Zheng will ultimately make his work public, however given his earlier statements and his recent cooperation with Apple it’s really unlikely that his detailed command line work will ever come to light. The skill to jailbreak iOS 11.3 will have to appear from the community themselves.
