Electra jailbreak toolkit for iOS 11.1.2 with support for Cydia Substrate alternate by Comex has been released. Here are the details you need to know about.
Popular developer CoolStar has announced Electra iOS 11.1.2 jailbreak toolkit for 64-bit devices running iOS 11 to 11.x.x, which has now been pushed live and is available to download with immediate effect.
Electra, the latest jailbreak “toolkit” has been pushed directly into the jailbreak community offering device liberation for Apple’s 64-bit iPhone and iPads running iOS 11.0 through to iOS 11.1.2, which is where compatibility with the Ian Beer async_wake exploit ends.
Rather than purely touted as a “full jailbreak solution,” CoolStar, the developer behind Electra creation, is marketing this particular offering as a “jailbreak toolkit.” In fact, it’s predominantly intended for developers and theme creators to test out their wares. This could be due to the fact that it comes with limitations that fully jailbreak solutions don’t suffer from.
Most importantly, those who use Electra to liberate their iOS 11.x.x devices won’t find themselves with Cydia, DPKG, or APT included. All this means that owners cannot jump into Cydia, refresh packages, add new sources, and even download their favorite tweaks and packages with a carefree attitude. So the average device owner will find themselves with an iPhone or iPad that is actually “jailbroken” but without the front-end experience that Cydia offers.
With that said, it does offer certain facilities that are appealing. Electra does otherwise come equipped with PreferenceLoader, a functional Safe Mode which protects the device if an erroneous or failing tweak is installed, as well as an uninstall script to remove Electra completely from the device altogether for those who want to remove traces of usage.
Nevertheless, the best part. You can also install Anemone themes as well as tweaks that don’t rely on Cydia Substrate framework. Those waiting for something of this nature to come along from a name in the community that you actually trust implicitly, then Electra would appear to be the jailbreak that you have been wanting.
As previously mentioned, it does actually have its limitations but is now available to download. Electra offered, at the time of writing, as beta 2 of the initial release.
You can grab it immediately from the Electra website at coolstar.org/electra/. Once grabbed, simply sideload the IPA to your compatible device using Cydia Impactor, and you should be good to go forward.
