So What Are The New Features On Electra 1.1.0?
The Electra 1.1.0 version comes with an update APT and dpkg packages for Sileo and split Cydia into a base and GUI package so it may be installed alongside Sileo. Moreover, it also comes with improved reliability of vfs exploit, fix occasional data abort kernel panics, and fix occasional freezes that would result in a kernel panic from a watchdog timeout.

What About The Sileo Package?
Reports dubbed Sileo as this “promising Cydia replacement”.
Around six months ago, the Electra jailbreak team said that they were working on a replacement for Cydia. They were referring to Sileo.
Earlier this month, Alessandro Chiarlitti (@aesign_), its designer, tweeted that Sileo is almost ready and that the developers just need to sort out a few things. Presumably, it will be the replacement for iOS 11 devices. And given that Apple has released the iOS 12 firmware for months now, it was also expected to work just fine there too.
Finally, the team behind Sileo released the first beta preview. It is available from the default Electra Repo. According to its official website, it is an efficient APT Package Manager designed for jailbroken devices running iOS 11.

Also, reports have noted a few things regarding the beta preview:
- Given that it’s a beta preview, some functionality is not finalized and bugs are to be expected.
- For now, the preview only supports the latest version of Electra.
- The source code will be published at a later date.
