iOS 12 is another new version Apple is working its way through a beta program which will end in a couple of months time. While the recent Electra release supported jailbreaking of devices that run anything up to version 11.3.1, a new version just released has now added support for iOS 11.4, albeit 11.4 beta 1 to beta 3 versions only, and not the final version as Apple has patched the Electra exploits in final version.
Support for iOS 11.4 betas is significant given that Apple is still signing beta 1, beta 2 and beta 3, meaning you can actually downgrade or restore your iPhone to any of these iOS 11.4 betas and enjoy a jailbreak.
The even better news? iOS 11.4 beta 1-beta 3 are still signed by Apple, which gives you an opportunity to actually downgrade to them right now and enjoy the jailbreak. Unfortunately, Apple only appears to be signing the firmware on iPhone X, iPhone 7/Plus, and iPhone 8/Plus devices.
Downgrade To iOS 11.4 Beta 3, 2, 1 Right Now – Jailbreak Using Electra
The recent Electra release has been used to jailbreak iOS devices almost 100,000 times since its release. We can imagine how the number would get much higher now that it can jailbreak a signed iOS firmware!
All-things in details, if you have an iPhone X, iPhone 7, 7 Plus, iPhone 8, 8 Plus and are either on final version of iOS 11.4 or 11.4.1, we suggest downloading iOS 11.4 beta 1-3 and downgrading to that firmware before Apple stops signing it.
Note: For anyone else who is on final version of iOS 11.3.1, they are advised to stay there as final version of iOS 11.3.1 will always be more stable than any of the iOS 11.4 betas.
Update: Here are the downloadable links for iOS 11.4 beta 3:
Once again, the reason why only iOS 11.4 beta 1-3 are supported is that the jailbreaking exploit being used by Electra 1131 – has also been patched by Apple in later betas of iOS 11.4, as well as the final version of iOS 11.4.
You can download iOS 11.4 betas from the above links and then simply use iTunes to restore. Once restored, download Electra 1.0.3 from coolstar.org/electra and jailbreak your device!
