If you’re a fan of first-person shooting platformers, the news of Epic Games’ entrance into the mobile gaming industry, by way of Fortnite: Battle Royale, has probably reached your ears and has peaked your curiosity. The game, which just recently found its way on the iOS platform, has already created a steady stream of intrigue inside the community, grabbing the attention of regular users, but more especially jailbreakers –individuals who have a knack for customizing their devices.

However, despite jailbreakers’ enthusiastic attempts at having a go at the game, Fortnite: Battle Royale has been integrated with a jailbreak detection feature, which prohibits jailbroken devices from accessing the much-anticipated title. This particular move isn’t all new in the community as developers often associate the act of jailbreaking iOS devices to piracy.

Although this is the current state of things, players hoping to get a piece of the action that is Fortnite: Battle Royale could just throw their worries out the window as a surefire method of bypassing the game’s jailbreak restriction has been uncovered. If you want to know how to correctly employ this workaround, just follow the steps listed below.


  • A jailbroken device running iOS 11
  • FilzaEscaped app for non-jailbroken devices must be installed on the device
  • Fornite: Battle Royale must be installed 


Step 1

Before anything else, users should make sure that their device is in a non-jailbroken condition. This could be done by simply turning the device off and then powering it back on. Once the device has successfully rebooted, refrain from running the Electra Jailbreak. After this, you’re ready for the next step.

Step 2

Open the FilzaEscaped application and find your way to the root folder marked with this particular symbol ‘/’. Here, you will be able to gain access to the bin folder, which you should then copy and transfer to another storage folder. Take note, the bin folder should be placed where it wouldn’t be tampered with or deleted.

Step 3

Sift through all of the bin folder’s contents and erase all files without the extensions df and ps. Files without these extensions are associated with Electra and Cydia, that’s why removing them is a must if you want to be able to play the game. Once you’re done deleting files with those specific extensions should only be the ones left inside the folder.

Step 4

Lastly, navigate your way out of FilzaEscaped. Following this, open Fortnite: Battle Royale on your device and run i. This time around, you should be able to access the game without being obstructed by Epic Game’s detection feature.

On the other hand, if you want to return your device to a jailbroken state, all you have to do is return the bin folder back to the root ‘/’ folder. Once accomplished, turn the device off and reboot it. After powering up, run the Electra jailbreak application and you’re done.
