Cydia For Electra iOS 11 Jailbreak Release Date Confirmed, Screenshots Teased On iPhone X

It’s almost ready to go. CoolStar has not only confirmed Cydia for Electra iOS 11 jailbreak release date but also teased a screenshot of it successfully running on an iOS 11.1.2 iPhone X. Jailbroken the device using Electra. Here are the details.

For you who don’t know, Electra jailbreak works on all 64-bit iOS 11.0-11.1.2 devices – including iPhone X. It is based on Ian Beer’s exploit, with patches and modifications not only from CoolStar himself, but also many others from the jailbreak community.

In today’s headlines, CoolStar sent his Cydia bootstrap to @nullriver for testing. After testing it, @nullriver reported back with screenshot confirming that Cydia works fine on jailbroken iPhone X running iOS 11.1.2. Once this was posted, CoolStar posted a tweet with text containing only “2/15/2018”, presumably to indicate the ETA for the arrival of much anticipated Cydia support for iOS 11 Electra jailbreak.

Cydia support for iOS 11 jailbreak has been in the works for months now, with Saurik first given confirmation about that he was working on it, as well as Cydia Substrate, with his friends from past jailbreaks. Until now, Saurik hasn’t provided any further update on his progress. Nevertheless, the good news is that we will very soon have Cydia running on our jailbroken iOS 11 devices courtesy of CoolStar.

About those black bar you see in the image on Cydia running on iPhone X, this is what CoolStar has to say:

For those wondering, the version of Cydia included in Electra will have the letterboxing black bars on iPhone X; we won’t mess with it much until maybe after release as the Cydia build has been tested and works

This jailbreak will indeed require you to have a device running iOS 11.1.2. If you don’t have a device on it, you are out of luck for now as Apple is no longer signing iOS 11.1.2.

If your devices on iOS 11.1.2, you can go ahead and jailbreak your device right now using Electra if you haven’t already. Once Cydia support is out, possibly on 15th of February, you can update your jailbreak and get Cydia on it.

In order to learn more, we will keep you updated on all the happenings from the jailbreak world. Stay tuned, as soon as the Electra jailbreak update is out with Cydia support built right in, we’ll let you know.
