How To Prepare For CoolStar's Electra iOS 11.3.1 Jailbreak Before Public Release
Everyone in the jailbreak community got a boost of hope when CoolStar tweeted that, “Electra might be updated to support 11.3.1 soon, however, there is a non-zero chance of it only supporting devices up to A9 due to requiring a KPP bypass.” Special thanks for the efforts of Ian Beer and Min Zheng, Electra iOS 11.3.1 jailbreak tool is now on track and should be up and running sooner than later.
It is also confirmed by CoolStar that Electra Jailbreak works on iPhone X and other types of iOS devices will face no problem. The tweet goes like this, “Thanks to everyone’s donations, got 2 test devices (A10X already here, A11 on the way) for iOS 11.3.1 :).”
Now, the introduction to Electra iOS 11.3.1 is now set and you know some backgrounds, this guide will give you a quick overview and what you need to learn about Jailbreaking.
Make sure your Device is on iOS 11.3.1
If you’re on a previous version, get iOS 11.3.1, if not, downgrade it to 11.3.1. There is a chance that Apple may shut down the signing window anytime so it’s better to get this done as soon as possible if you’re planning to jailbreak your device.
For downgrade or update purposes, save iOS 11.3.1 SHSH2 Blobs/ECID SHSH
This will help you preserve your firmware, it will act as your backup during your attempt. SHSH2 is a unique fingerprint Apple uses for every device and a protocol ensuring your device will only get trusted software. For more details, you can check this guide for saving your device’s SHSH2.
