It was a long road, but the guys from CoolStar have finally developed a stable, untethered jailbreak for 64-bit iPhones, iPads and iPad touch on iOS 11.2 through 11.3.1 with the latest update. The coverage has grown to 11 , 4 beta 3 extended. So if you've been waiting for the update to iOS 11.4.1, your patience has finally paid off.
In its heyday, jailbreaking your iOS device meant access to thousands of enhancements Mods that are not allowed by Apple to give you the ability to thoroughly personalize your iPhone – adding a numeric keypad to displaying your RAM to changing your font and so on.
Unfortunately, the list of available (and iOS 1
It is important to note that the Electra jailbreak does not work if you have recently updated your iOS device to 11.4.1. All hope is not lost.
If you have an iPhone 7 up to the iPhone X, Apple still signs 11.4 Beta 3 on iTunes. This means that you still have the option to download the appropriate firmware for your device via the links below, so do it now before Apple stops signing it! Note that you can not join the public beta and get iOS 11.4 Beta 3 – new subscribers will jump directly to iOS 12 – instead, use the files below directly from the Apple servers.
Firmware in hand, just connect your iPhone to your computer and open iTunes. From there, either hold down the Shift (PC) or option (Mac), and then click "Recover iPhone" on the device page. Keep in mind, however, that data collected during 11.4.1 can not be transferred while you recover from your backup as you upgrade to older software.
Once you use iOS 11.4 Beta 3 or an iOS device version 11.2 to 11.3.1, you can continue with the following steps. If you're currently using the beta version of iOS 12, you can still downgrade to iOS 11.4 Beta 3.
Step 1: Go to TweakBox
Open Safari on your device and go to next.tweakboxapp.com. Once you're on the site, either tap the Apps tab at the top of the page or swipe left to go to the Apps page. From there scroll down and select "Electra 11.3.1 MultiPath (right)" to get to its page.
Now tap on the red button " Install "on the page, and then click" Install "again in the confirmation prompt that appears. Wait a minute or two after making your selection and exit Safari. An icon for Electra will now appear on the home screen of your iPhone, but do not touch it yet – proceed to the next step.
Step 2: Trust Your Profile
Before you use the Electra app to jailbreak your device, you must first open as a developer for the app. Open the settings, select "General", then scroll down and select "Device Management" on the following page.
Tap on the device management page on "Trust Dingshengcaiful Investment Management" and then select "Trust" again from the confirmation prompt from your selection. Finish the settings as soon as you're done and go to the last step.
The path is now free to open Electra, so tap on the app and make sure the switch next to "Tweaks" is set to the "On" position on the following page. Hit "Enable Jailbreak" when you're ready, and the app will continue to jailbreak your device automatically
Your iPhone will automatically restart after a minute or two, and once it booted successfully, an icon for Cydia will now appear on your home screen. You can now unlock Cydia to access the app and experiment with various (available) enhancements to your heart's content!
Note that due to the sheer Amount of devices that are covered by the jailbreak, individual results can vary to run the jailbreak is affected. We tested the method on an iPhone SE on 11.2.1 and an iPhone 8 on 11.4 Beta 3 and found that the jailbreak on the first try of the SE was successful, while he finally after several attempts with the restart of the device for the iPhone 8 worked.
In addition, Cydia developer Saurik has warned users in previous Electra Jailbreaks that if he updates Cydia in the future, Cydia probably will not be compatible with your Electra jailbreak. If that happens, you'll need to wait for CoolStar to add support for the latest version of Cydia. Anyway, we'd love to hear from you, so be sure to leave a comment and let us know how the jailbreak works for you. If you encounter a problem, make sure you know the problem closely, along with the brand and model of your device and its current firmware.
