iOS 11.3.1 / iOS 11.4 Beta 3 Electra Jailbreak Source Code Now Available For Download
CoolStar, the team behind the successful iOS 11.3.1 / iOS 11.4 Beta 3 Electra jailbreak has publicized a huge announcement in the jailbreak community. With immediate effectivity, the Electra 1131 source code is now an open source and the jailbreak enthusiasts can now download it through GitHub.
For the jailbreak community, seeing the code become an open source is really good news. However, based on CoolStar’s tweets, the case is quite the opposite. This is because was made available on GitHub before a dismissed member of the Electra team seemingly could leak it lacking the consent.
With that, it is worth noting that a jailbreak wouldn’t be a jailbreak if there’s no serious argument and some important in-fighting amidst the group. According to CoolStar’s tweets, @pwn20wnd has been detached from the Electra team after he “threatened” to leak the iOS 11.3.1 / iOS 11.4 Beta 3 Electra Jailbreak source code into the public domain deprived of other team members’ approval.
Rather than permit the ex-team member to leak the source code, the CoolStar has taken the radical measure of making it publicly available.
TL;DR: We have had several problems with pwn20wnd and have decided to remove him from the Electra team due to his recent behavior. https://twitter.com/coolstarorg/status/1019612127609249792 …
I have caught wind that he was planning to leak the source code, and so have open sourced it before he could do that.
The Electra1131 is now an open source and the code is accessible for all jailbreak enthusiasts to download it. For some sort of equality and reflection, you may want to take a look at the Twitter timeline of @pwn20wnd to directly see that he disproves all of the claims that are made by CoolStar. The ex-team member also claims that he had no plans of leaking the Electra source code.
