Electra 1.0.3 iOS 11 Jailbreak Tool Available Now, Fix Freezing Issue
CoolStar dropped Electra 1.0.3 IPA download for iOS 11 jailbreak with Cydia. The latest version of Electra jailbreak tool released in order fix the intermittent freezing issue, which certain people might be facing after using Electra.
The freezing issue has been apparently occurring for some users who have jailbreaked their devices on iOS 11.0-11.1.2 using Electra jailbreak tool. We have reported this issue and offered a temporary workaround method on how to fix this issue couple of days ago.
After releasing Electra Jailbreak tool with Cydia for iOS 11 the famous CoolStar dropped Electra 1.0.2 for fixing the APT 0.7 strict error that was created by the APT update rolled out by Cydia. With the latest Electra 1.0.3 release, the problem of freezing will be gone once and for all. However, it should be noted that jailbreaking procedure will be a bit slower than usual when using Electra 1.0.3 due to the fix implemented.
The full official changelog of latest Electra 1.0.3 jailbreak tool details the exact changes in this release:
-Revert change to XPC in xpcproxy in beta 11
-Fix intermittent freezing issues that would affect certain devices on beta 10 -> 1.0.2
Coolstar has also revealed that bad tweaks may still cause a problem that is probably the reason why some users are reporting the freezing issue with Electra 1.0.3. He said that the problem is not with Electra iOS 11 jailbreak tool “but with said tweaks that are loading Launch Daemons.”
Note: Bad tweaks can still cause problems even on 1.0.3
Most notably, if a daemon is installed into /Library/LaunchDaemons and the binary is missing the “platform-application” entitlement. launchd on iOS 11 will constantly loop trying to load the daemon as it’s killed by Sandbox
Also, Safe Mode only protects against backboardd/SpringBoard crashes If a tweak crashes a system daemon, it’ll get stuck in a crash loop, which definitely would cause freezing
Electra version 1.0.3 is available to download on the official website i.e. coolstar.org/electra. For safety, you shouldn’t download Electra from anywhere else.
Once downloaded, you can simply follow our step-by-step tutorial in order to jailbreak, or re-jailbreak your device and fix the freezing problem. However, if you haven’t had any freezing issues with your device after Electra jailbreak, then you can skip re-jailbreaking your device with Electra 1.0.3 altogether and continue using Electra 1.0.2 jailbreak tool.
