Electra Jailbreak for iOS 11 - iOS 11.1.2 Released

Electra Jailbreak for iOS 11 - iOS 11.1.2 Released

Posted February 27, 2018 at 6:21pm by iClarified
Coolstar has released Electra, a jailbreak compatible with all iPhone, iPod touch, iPad and iPad mini models running iOS 11.0-11.1.2.

The KPPLess jailbreak uses a modified version of comex's Substitute to provide functionality previously offered by saurik's Cydia Substrate. This means that most tweaks, apps, binaries will not work until updated. There is a compatibility list here. Make sure you check it before installing anything from Cydia.

Important Information
● An APFS snapshot is created of / so you may revert it at a later date if needed
● It is recommended to futurerestore if you have blobs before running Electra to ensure the best possible installation
● Cydia is included
● OpenSSH is running on port 22
● Electra repo added by default
● Substitute, Tweak Loader and Substrate Compatibility Layer available from Electra repo
● Many packages need to be updated for both Electra and iOS 11 (make sure they're updated before installing as they may not work yet)
● RocketBootstrap 1.0.6 or higher is required for use on iOS 11
● Many apps, launch daemons and installation binaries are broken as they require entitlements to be added

● Everything on saurik's repo right now is broken on iOS 11
● If you’re on iOS 11 and see an update for “APT 0.7 Strict”, or any package for that matter, that’s from saurik’s repo (Cydia/Telesphoreo) DO NOT UPDATE IT

Notably, saurik has criticized the use of a jailbreak daemon and says he is working with a well known developer to release a jailbreak of iOS 11.0 - 11.1.2 with a working Cydia and Cydia Substrate. Unfortunately, we don't have an ETA on when that will arrive.

If you want to try the Electra jailbreak, it can be downloaded from here. You can install on it on your device using Cydia Impactor and your Apple ID credentials. If you're not a developer you will only be able to sign the app for seven days after which you'll have to sign it with Cydia Impactor again.

We'll be providing more information shortly. Please follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, or RSS for updates.

Is this jailbreak untethered?

No dude. When an untethered jailbreak comes out...you will know. It's a big thing everyone is waiting for.

That would imply not having to plug into a computer to install anything. That’s hasn’t been done in a long while. I’m guessing since the Green Poison days or possibly even iOS 8, but I thought that’s was a TaiG tether.

The million dollar question is how stable is the jailbrake?
Dylan - March 1, 2018 at 5:18pm
According to EverythingApplePro it’s running fine on his personal iPhone X. Couple minor UI hiccups with tweaks, but that’s understandable since some were developed before that phone came to market. Also don’t download anything from Saurik as it states. His Repo is DOA ATM, so only update the essentials for Cydia.

Saurik probably has a day job......or switched to Android over a year ago. Or both....either way....Dude sounds busy. I think people started to not root Android anymore because out of the box, Android is solid now. I feel this same sentiment will apply to iphone soon. Where jailbreaking is not needed because ios has come a long way since the last untethered jailbreak back on 9.0.2 i think.

I always thought that too, but it still seems to be the same walled garden. I love Android phone manufacturers who keep their phones clean and near stock Nougat/Oreo. Nokia, Moto, OnePlus, and ZTE just to name a few. I honestly hope we get there with iOS, but after I saw what the GS9 could do I felt like I was using an ancient artifact.

Is VideoPace working?
Dylan - March 1, 2018 at 5:24pm
Which tweak is that? They have a PiP mode for YouTube videos where you can watch it while switching apps it’s super slick!

DO NOT INSTALL THE ESSENTIAL APT UPGRADE. It's fine to jailbreak and running great, however DO NOT RUN THE APT UPGRADE
Dylan - March 1, 2018 at 5:25pm
I will take your word for it, as well as what the article said about Saurik’s Source!

Beware the electra jailbreak tool, it already make a lot of users iPhone getting error, auto respring, bootloop, cydia not working , tweaks not compatible or cydia missing. If you are planning. Research more information first. Once get worst, it is hard to restore back 11 to 11.1.2

Me to I'm waiting for perfection and there is only one who is able to create a perfect jailbreak, the Master of jail braking and Cydia, Saurik himself and I don't want problems because of Electra plus you know that iOS 11 Cydia will be released with Saurik jailbreak so I've waited this long I can wait a little longer.

Coolstar ROCKS! Thanks a lot for his hard work, the jailbreak community needed this so badly... however I'm probably gonna wait till Saurik releases his own ¿tool? Too many roadblocks, even if I've got both, my SHSH2 blobs and access to futurerestore, won't take chances. Meanwhile, tweak devs will have time to update their stuff, Ryan Petrich is already on it.
Ace* - February 27, 2018 at 6:45pm
Damn. When is Saurik’s coming? Any idea?
D4xM4Nx - February 27, 2018 at 7:11pm
No idea at all... he's given no ETAs.
Dylan - March 1, 2018 at 5:28pm
Sounds like a plan. I think I’m going to slow my train and wait like the others for a proper Saurik release. What firmware should I stay on at this point?
