As they say, it's all or nothing. It looks like it can be applied to the jailbreak area, where there is a lot of activity suddenly.
Yesterday there was news that hacker SparkZheng managed to jailbreak iOS 11.3, but later clarified that technically it was not really a jailbreak.
Coolstar also decided to take the opportunity and talked about plans to release an update to his Electra jailbreak with support for iOS 11.2.6 – iOS 11.2, and also advised users not to update if they have these versions installed.
Also, today SparkZheng wrote about jailbreaking iOS 11.3.1, the latest version available iOS, and posted a demo video.
If that's not enough, hacker Abraham Masri just posted a Houdini semi-jailbreak demo video for iOS 11.4. At the moment, version iOS 11.4 is in beta testing. New features include support for Messages in iCloud, Airplay 2, stereo for HomePod, etc.
Houdini's tool is not like the others like Electra and the like, it is a semi-jailbreak that allows you to do the following:
- Reshape icons
- Block ads
- Change emoji
- Change logo at system startup

The latest version of Houdini beta 2 supports iOS 11 – iOS 11.1.2. The demo video of Houdini beta 3 on iPad with beta version iOS 11.4 shows the ability to disable system updates, hide icon captions and do respring, as well as change keys on the password screen, color of signatures, etc.
Houdini is a good option for customizing your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch without needing to jailbreak.
