In today's video, we're going to discuss the latest iOS 11.3.1 Jailbreak demo from Min (Spark) Zheng. Min Zheng has posted a video showcasing his full iOS 11.3.1 and lower jailbreak with Cydia installed and with MTerminal fully working. The MTerminal is opened during the video and Min Zheng runs the "uname -a" Unix command which prints the information about the Kernel.
The #jailbreak is apparently based on a vulnerability that survived in #iOS 11.3.x since iOS 11.1.x. Min Zheng has discovered the vulnerability over a month ago and he said that the vulnerability helped him to get root access. Some people believe that Min Zheng will not release the jailbreak but I tend to believe he will due to the following reasons.
At first, why would Min bother to add Cydia and a working MTerminal if he only wanted to have a proof of concept? Gaining root via SSH would have been more than enough for demonstration purposes on a private jailbreak. Second, Min Zheng announced a few weeks ago that he will be submitting a talk to a conference and will give out more information about the vulnerability. We're talking about the same vulnerability used in his jailbreak so if he discloses the vulnerability, why not taking the extra step to disclose the jailbreak too?
This is mere speculation at this point but we're going to see exactly what happens after the conference. He did not say to which conference he applied but I will keep you updated once we get more trustworthy info.
