The much-awaited Electra 1.0.x jailbreak tool with Cydia for iOS 11 seeded by CoolStar. The creator of Electra jailbreak has been tirelessly updated his jailbreak tool for iOS 11.

CoolStar and his team have finally made the final 1.0.x version of Electra jailbreak available to everyone. The new update comes with Cydia Installer support built in. This version of Electra jailbreak tool is believed to be stable enough and therefore developer has marked it as 1.0 rather than any beta or RC. It has released publically that means anyone can go ahead and download it.

Electra is compatible with 64-bit devices iOS 11.0 to iOS 11.1.2 firmware because Electra is based on Ian Beer’s exploit that was only applicable on iOS 11.0-11.1.2. The original version of said jailbreak tool was dropped as the beta in January without Cydia. However, the latest Electra 1.0.x jailbreak is the final version of the tool and it is also the first jailbreak for iOS 11 that offers Cydia support.

For the jailbreak process, it almost remains precisely the same. Once the latest version of the Electra jailbreak is downloaded, and the IPA is sideloaded to the iOS device, the jailbreak process will be exactly as it was previously. However, the only change is that this time it will come with the added advantage of actually installing a usable version of Cydia to the Apple device. Several compatible tweaks and packages would also be available to install using the Cydia interface.

Electra 1.0.x changelog notes reads:

An APFS snapshot is created of / so you may revert it at a later date if needed

Substitute, Tweak Loader and Substrate Compatibility Layer available from Electra repo

Many packages need to be updated for both Electra and iOS 11 (make sure they’re updated before installing as they may not work yet)

Jailbreak community should be thankful to CoolStar and his team to once again put the effort and made the release of promised jailbreak with Cydia for iOS 11 even before Saurik. The final version of Electra jailbreak for iOS 11 can be downloaded from coolstar.org/electra/.
