iOS 11 Jailbreak News, Update: CoolStar Drops Beta 7 For Electra Jailbreak Tool
The jailbreak community is having a hard time in finding a fully working jailbreak for iOS 11. However, there are several jailbreak tools available online but none of them comes with the Cydia support. The only tool which is getting new developments everyday is Electra by CoolStar. In the latest news, CoolStar has released 7th beta update for the Electra jailbreak tool.
CoolStar made the announcement for beta 7 update on his official twitter handle. The latest beta 7 for the Electra iOS 11 jailbreak tool fixes an important bug. The latest beta for the said tool includes the new patch for Amfid that is necessary particularly when the Amfid patch was killed. The 7th beta for Electra also clears the Amfid patch files (stek29) which use to mess up with the jailbreak tool. Moreover, the update adds 3D Touch shortcut (ca13ra1) for the CoolStar’s own exploits.
Electra beta 7 is now available! https://t.co/YxbYAmMkVK
amfid now gets repatched if it ever gets killed, so there should be no reason for apps to suddenly stop launching now

About Electra Jailbreak For iOS 11:
For those who aren’t familiar with jailbreak news, the famous developer CoolStar was able to come up with a jailbreak tool which supports Apple devices running iOS 11.0 to 11.2 versions. The CoolStar’s Electra jailbreak tool uses the same open-source tfp0 exploit that was developed by security researcher Ian Beer.
tfp0 iOS exploit was discovered late last year, and CoolStar within a few months created Electra jailbreak using the same concept. However, you should know that Electra jailbreak tool does not have Cydia or Substrate to the device. It also doesn’t include DPKG and APT patches. But, luckily, Electra jailbreak can be used to install third-party extensions through SSH.
Software developers are the ones who can use iOS 11 Electra jailbreak tool. CoolStar has not yet launched this exploit for the public. Speculations are rife that a more generic version of the jailbreak tool could be released soon.
Expect a major update to Electra sometime this week. Going to spend some time testing these upcoming changes 🙂

Notably, Electra jailbreak also has an uninstall script for returning your iOS device to a non-jailbroken state. Several Reddit users have supposedly used the latest version of Electra jailbreak without any problems. However, it is advisable to install this jailbreak at your own risk.
