Substitute 0.0.5 Released For Electra iOS 11 Jailbreak Tool
If you have a jailbroken device running on the iOS 11 and experiencing intermittent performance issues then this article is for you. Substitute, which is the Comex-developed Cydia Substrate replacement that ships with the Electra jailbreak, has been updated officially via Cydia to version 0.0.5.
Comex’s Substitute is a Cydia Substrate alternative which will now work with iOS 11. Substitute 0.0.5 has been dropped by the developer, which made some of the most popular jailbreaks such as JailbreakMe and Sprint back in 2015, an alternative for Cydia Substrate. The latest version, Substitute 0.0.5, is compatible with Electra iOS 11 jailbreak CoolStar.
For those who are new, Cydia is like the App Store of jailbreak community that allows device owners to install tweaks, packages, and themes to their device using a user-friendly interface. While Cydia is the storefront, Substrate lets Springboard-based tweaks function on a jailbroken device.
Electra, which is the only real in-depth jailbreak for iOS 11.0 through iOS 11.1.2 as of writing, now offers a modified version of Cydia but it does come with Substitute instead of Cydia Substrate. This package was put together by Comex as a replacement for Substrate and only should be used when Substrate hasn’t been updated to give the compatibility with a higher iOS version.
A number of device owners’ jailbroken with the latest Electra jailbreak reported performance issues, including devices freezing when any type of data is being refreshed, and even some just crashing in total. These are the issues that have been attributed to functional issues with Substitute.
The latest update raises the Substitute to version 0.0.5 as it resolves at least some of the problems that users have been complaining of. Those who are jailbroken using the public release of Electra can head to Cydia right now and grab the latest update of Substitute.
Based on previous impressions, it looks like some device owners are finding that Substitute version 0.0.5 resolves a lot of the issues with Electra and makes the apple device faster. For more updates on jailbreak stay tuned with us.
