Electra RC1 Jailbreak With Cydia Support Leaked Ahead Of RC 1.3 Public Release

Electra iOS 11.1.2 jailbreak is quickly becoming one of the most streamlined tools, but still in its beta stages up to this point. CoolStar is already beginning to seed Electra RC1 to trusted jailbreak community developers for testing. Two of the most popular modern jailbreak tweaks, the Anemone and BioProtect have now been updated and released with full iOS 11 jailbreak support just before Electra RC1 public release.

Both Anemone and BioProject are pretty much a must-have installation on all jailbroken devices. The two developers have now released compatibility updates to support devices jailbroken with Electra.

CoolStar, one of the developer of the extremely popular Electra jailbreak for iOS 11.0 through till iOS 11.1.2 – raised the excitement levels by announcing that Electra complete with Cydia would be released this week. As promised, the first version of Electra complete with Cydia bundled in would be released to a select few developers in the first instance. This release means those developers could eventually take the opportunity to get their own popular packages up and running with iOS 11 and fully test the experience before giving Cydia access to the general public.

One of the most interesting facts is that the significant changes present in Electra RC1 are the inclusion of CoolStar’s patched Cydia, which is obviously, been the most highly-sought after features for the jailbreak since its inception in mid-January.

The immediate availability of Anemone and BioProtect, which are the two popular installations, suggests that the strategy is working well. For you, don’t know what is Anemone?

Anemone is an essential tweak offered it as a replacement for the old-school WinterBoard which allows third-party themes and visual customizations to be invoked and managed on a jailbroken device. BioProtect is a wonderful tweak by Elias Limneos which allows individual applications to be protected through biometrics. This latest version is fully compatible with iOS 11, Touch ID, and Apple’s latest Face ID functionality for those who are lucky enough to own iPhone X.

Both packages have been added to the iOS 11 Electra RC1 jailbreak with Cydia support, and also available to download and install right now. But not automatically, rather go through a manual installation process or by using the Tweak Installer. For those who prefer to wait and do it properly, it’s likely only a matter of time until CoolStar puts the Electra jailbreak out for the public with Cydia installed as part of the payload.

Until that time comes, it’s great to see developers embracing iOS 11 and bring their tools up to scratch to support the latest jailbreaks running the latest possible jailbreakable firmware.

As soon as Electra jailbreak with Cydia is available, we will let you know. Additionally, as and when prominent tweaks are updated with iOS 11 compatibility, you can be sure to hear it here first.

All is not lost though as there’s a good news for those looking to get their iOS 11.1.2 devices jailbroken with Cydia Installer support.

How? While CoolStar has been keeping a running checklist of the actions needed before RC1 would be made available to the public, with that checklist now available for everyone to see via GitHub. That lengthy list is almost complete, with two checkboxes remaining; “Make sure the entire thing can be reverted by SemiRestore11,” and “Release!”

Based on that, we can assume that it is only a matter of time until we get the public facing release candidate, that too, in the form of RC 1.3 release.

Although it may still be in the hands of tweak developers if CoolStar still wants to make sure they have all their tricks in a row before releasing his jailbreak since the RC1 version has been leaked out by a tweak developer, it looks like the next version release will most likely be for the public.

However, this is an even more complete checklist that at least give us hope that the Electra iOS 11 jailbreak with Cydia bundled in is not far away from the public now.
