Yesterday, we reported the release date teased by CoolStar for the Cydia for iOS 11. Everyone has expected that the much-awaited Cydia for iOS 11 will be available to the public on February 15. However, latest tweet from the developer of Electra Jailbreak hints that the Electra jailbreak RC1 that will include Cydia for iOS 11 will be available for developers only.

CoolStar in the series of tweets given the following reason for delaying the release of Cydia for iOS 11 to the public:

Electra RC1 will be a limited release to developers only initially. It will be made available to the public once core 3rd-party packages are updated (E.g. Filza and RocketBootstrap).

As of right now, all packages from saurik’s repo and many 3rd party Cydia packages that depends on daemons are broken on iOS 11. Hence the initial developer-only release while we get electratools set up and let 3rd parties update.

The famous developer has also reportedly consulted with the jailbreak developers like Ryan Petrich, who is the developer of popular jailbreak tweaks like Activator, so the process can be expedited. Right now, it’s probably the nice time to launch the Cydia when packages from Saurik’s repo and previous 3rd party Cydia packages are accessible. The developer release of Cydia for iOS 11 will give developers time to update the packages.

CoolStar has also shared screenshots (above) of packages loading in Cydia. The developer also being able to install them. CoolStar hasn’t openly mentioned it but his tweets force us to speculate that on February 15 we will see the Electra jailbreak with iOS 11 Cydia for developers only.
