Electra 1.0.2 Jailbreak Tool Released; Fix APT 0.7 Strict (lib) Error
APT 0.7 Strict (lib) error can be fixed now after CoolStar has released Electra 1.0.2 jailbreak tool for iOS 11 to iOS 11.1.2. It came on the heel of the release of 1.0 and 1.0.1 as CoolStar’s response to Jay Freeman’s (a.k.a. Saurik) alleged move to block Electra’s Cydia fork for iOS 11 in releasing APT 0.7.
The release of an APT update, conspicuously happened when CoolStar had announced the release of Electra jailbreak tool with Cydia, had broken Cydia on the Electra jailbroken devices. This, however, is no longer a problem for affected jailbreakers.
This version, according to the official release notes of 1.0.2, can fix “APT 0.7 Strict on devices that updated to the broken copy on Saurik’s repo, blocks package installation from Saurik’s repo, and fixes the last issue with liberiOS being detected as topanga.”
CoolStar, in his tweets after the release, said “on Electra 1.0.2, Saurik’s repo will fail to load with ‘Connection Refused.’ This is normal.” He explained “If Saurik’s repo appears empty on Electra 1.0.2 and there’s an error loading Saurik’s repo, this is normal. This is a feature. Not a bug.”
The official Electra 1.0.2 changelog reads as follows: fix false positives where Electra would think topanga was installed when only liberiOS was; prevent loading packages from Saurik’s repo (since Cydia can’t be patched to remove it; and fix APT 0.7 Strict (lib) on devices that may have already updated the broken copy from Saurik’s repo.
Users can download the newest version from https://coolstar.org/electra. In sideloading Electra IPA and running it to jailbreak the iOS device, users are advised to use Cydia Impactor. A step-by-step guide how to jailbreak iOS while installing Cydia during jailbreak is also available.
