After hitting the Electra icon it goes through 1/3 and then the screen goes almost black during step 2/3 and doesn't do anything beyond that. I can hit the home button and I get springboard back but no jailbreak. I revoked certificates in the old Impactor and loaded the new 9.44 before starting. I have an iPhone 8plus.

You all may want to give Coolstar some time to fix bugs Electra could come with. Nice weekend gift!!

Yeah, I’ve waited this long, I can wait longer, was just wondering if it was something I was doing wrong, I never turned on hey Siri on my phone, so I tried turning that on to program hey Siri with my voice, then rebooted, then turned it off and turn airplane on, then rebooted again and tried Electra, got some different results, but this time it showed error mounting rtboot or something like that, and tried again but now it’s back to same black screen... :/ I’ll just have to wait

I figured it out, you have to make sure you delete 11.4 ota update file(cool star website info) install tvOS profile( also cool star website info) sign out of icloud(YouTube video) and turn off Siri(iClarified info) and put in airplane mode( iClarified) after doing all that and rebooting a couple times, it finally started working properly.

So I’ve turned off Siri, and put it in airplane mode. Rebooted, and the Electra app just goes to a black screen and doesn’t do anything after a couple of seconds of the step 1/3, once or twice I saw it go to step 2/3 but still went to a black screen and never rebooted, what am I doing wrong?
