The iOS 11.3.1 is now out to the public and another good news has arrived. Owners of iPhone X, 8, and 7 that are running on iOS 11.4-11.4.1 can jailbreak their handsets using the Electra toolkit.
Things To Remember Before Jailbreaking Your Device
In case you’re wondering how you’ll be able to jailbreak iOS 11.4-11.4.1 if the Electra Jailbreak doesn’t have support for these versions, then the technique is to downgrade to iOS 11.4 beta which Apple is still signing.

But then, you have to hurry as Apple may stop signing the iOS 11.4 beta soon.
Before jailbreaking your handset, here are some significant points to keep in mind:
- Make sure that you do a complete backup of your iOS device using iTunes.
- Make sure that your handset has sufficient battery level for the jailbreak procedure to be finished.
- The Electra Jailbreak for the iOS 11.3.1 – iOS 11.2 has just been launched. Thus, it is recommended to wait for the initial problems to be solved before trying it. But, if you’re ready to take the risk you can do the instructions below to liberate your handset.
Step-By-Step Process To Jailbreak Your Device
Now that you’re already decided to liberate your handset, here’s a step-by-step guide:
Step 1: Download the iOS 11.4 beta 3 for your iPhone X, 8, and 7.
Step 2: Launch the iTunes and restore your device to this firmware. You must make sure that all of your significant data is backed up.
Step 3: Download the newest version of iOS 11.3.1 Electra jailbreak from coolstar.org/electra and Cydia Impactor. You also have to make sure that the latest version of iTunes is installed on your computer.
Step 4: Before you start the jailbreak process, make sure that your Find My iPhone is turned off, the Airplane Mode is enabled, WiFi is off, and Siri is disabled. Also, reboot your iOS device before running the Electra jailbreak on it.
Step 5: Connect your iOS handset to the computer. Launch the Cydia Impactor and sideload the Electra IPA on your iOS device. The iOS 11.3.1 Electra jailbreak has two versions; one necessitates paid developer account while the other can be used through a free Apple ID account.
For most of those who are new to jailbreaking, it is recommended to go non-dev version. Depending on the kind of Electra version you’re sideloading, Cydia Impactor will ask for your Apple ID and password. Be sure to provide the right details.
Step 6: The moment you’re done sideloading, you can now launch the Electra app from your iOS device’s Home screen and tick on the “Jailbreak” button. Your device will then resprings or reboot.
Step 7: Once the handset comes back from the respring or reboot, unlock the Lock screen and then launch the Electra application again, and then tick on the “Jailbreak” button again.
Step 8: Allow the Electra jailbreak do the jailbreaking and once the process is done, you’ll have the Cydia icon on the Home screen of your device.
Step 9: Launch the Cydia and you can now start installing tweaks!
Note: Since the iOS 11.3.1 Electra toolkit is a semi-untethered jailbreak, you’ll have to put your handset into jailbreak mode after each and every reboot by just re-running Electra application. Aside from that, after every 7 days, you’ll need to re-sideload Electra and then re-jailbreak your device.
