May be this is speculation but there are people hinting that Saurik may release the latest Cydia substrate which will support iOS 11 jailbreak. As we know that Saurik has already confirmed that he is working on Cydia to make it compatible with iOS 11. In that case people who are able to jailbreak ios 11 shall be able to install Cydia as well.
I am quoting one Facebook update from a jailbreak group, which may help you to understand the subject, in reply someone corrected that Cydia was released on 28 Feb not January 2008.
Now this is only speculation but I believe Cydia and mobile substrate may go live tomorrow Jan 28th. Why Jan 28th you ask? Because it’s the 10th anniversary of Cydia! Cydia was released by Saurik (Jay Freeman) Jan 28 ‘08! I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised if it was tomorrow. Saurik saying he was working with a well known jailbreaker lends itself to the theory. Who might this mystery hacker be? My guess is the return (maybe just for this project) Comex!
What is you opinion? Do you think Cydia may be released on 28 January or may be on 28 February 2018.
G0blin, a jailbreak for 64-bit devices prior to the iPhone 7 (A7 – A9) running iOS 10.3.x , has been released by Sticktron.
If you’re not a developer, we recommend that you must wait until the final version has been released.

We are hearing much about the Cydia alternative because Cydia is not supporting the latest iOS versions especially iOS 11 jailbreak. Installer 5 is one of those projects which has managed to make space in the jailbreak community. On one hand, some individuals believe it can step into the footsteps of Cydia due to the fact that Cydia hasn’t been put through an update for a long while.
However, there’s also the obvious issue that most of the important tweaks and packages need Substrate to be installed and working on the device, which is still yet to be updated with iOS 11 compatibility and it seems highly unlikely that the Installer 5 team will have an alternative to this.
Saurik has updated that he is working on Cydia 11 and its substrate to work with iOS 11 jailbreak. After which Installer team has also started giving update to keep the community awake. Here is latest from Installer team, which came from Dennis Bednarz, also confirms that Installer 5 is being developed in separate parts:
The UI and the actual black magic code in #installer5 are developed separately for now so developers can optimize their time and so designers can do the same. We will have a working UI “prototype“ in the coming days where people will be able to install a dummy app to test the UX
This release of a prototype is useful for developer as well to grasp the inputs and improvement opportunities. We shall keep you informed once we see the real breakthrough in the achievement of iOS 11 jailbreak with working Cydia or Installer 5 app store.
The announcement of Installer 5 update is not telling when the prototype version of the tool will actually be released but the suggestion of the “coming days” would lead us to believe that we should definitely expect a version during next week. As always, we will let you know as soon as it’s available. Stay tuned.
Another supporting update for iOS 11 jailbreak seekers, that Cydia developer Saurik is working with a well known developer to release a jailbreak for iOS 11.0 – 11.1.2 with a working Cydia and Cydia Substrate.
I have been working on putting together an end-to-end replacement for the userland parts of the exploit tooling–with help from a well-known jailbreak developer (who did tell me he would like to come public with this, so I will be crediting him in the final release and you will all find out who it is… “SURPRISE REVEAL” ;P)–that, when combined with my crazy new Substrate “let’s hook dyld itself” implementation, simply fixes all of the reasons why this “jailbreakd” that coolstar and Morpheus want so badly supposedly needs to exist.
Saurik further notes that the architecture without a jailbreak daemon is much cleaner and will be more stable, “it means that there isn’t some weird coordination boundary halfway between Substrate and the jailbreak”.
Although work on Substrate is ‘almost done’, saurik says he still has some work to do to get the full Cydia Installer stack ported. He also expressed concern that we are are reaching an era of jailbreaking where we get a cygwin-like Unix simulation rather than real and high-quality tooling “which had been the core thing that motivated me to jailbreak my own devices.”
We have already got LiberiOS 11 jailbreak tool which is now waiting for patching or integrating with Cydia and users can jailbreak ios 11 & 11.1.2.
