Substitute 0.0.6 For iOS 11 Jailbreak Released Prior To Electra 1.1 Launch

Without notice, developer CoolStar has otherwise silently updated Substitute to version 0.0.6. All this happened approximately five weeks after Substitute’s version 0.0.5 update but unfortunately, the latest doesn’t come with any detailed patch notes or changelog to inform exactly what has changed.

Yes, CoolStar has put a lot of effort and work into Comex’s Substitute behind the scenes. After originally introducing the Electra jailbreak for iOS 11 through iOS 11.1.2 devices. Later on, CoolStar announced that a future release of Electra would ship evidently with Cydia and Substrate.

However, Saurik’s Cydia Substrate would exist instead of Substitute but since Substrate is closed source and Saurik still hasn’t updated it for iOS 11, CoolStar took the open source alternative framework built y Comex and got it ready into position where it could support his jailbreak and work alongside Cydia Installer to install additional tweaks and packages.

Version 0.0.5 was actually released in early March to try out and rectify a number of performance issues which were being reported by jailbroken device owners.

When the version 0.0.5 was rolled out, ticked a lot of boxes for a lot of users and managed to make the whole experience a lot more subtle, stable and usable. There may be notes attached to this latest release but from comments, and under normal circumstances, it would seem that additional performance improvements have been achieved, with one user saying that “Anemone opens fast AF now.”

In addition to bringing performance and stability gains, it’s also likely that Substitute 0.0.6 has set the groundwork for CoolStar’s introduction of Electra jailbreak version 1.1, teased earlier this month with the promise of allowing “binaries without platform-application entitlement to launch properly” as well as confirming that previous issues with 64-bit binaries should be rectified and no longer present on device which otherwise is jailbroken with Electra 1.1.

At the time of writing there has been no official date set for the release of Electra 1.1 but nevertheless, it would see the release of Substitute 0.0.6 in the coming days.

If you are jailbroken using the Electra jailbreak and have been experiencing some old performance or freezing issues, then it could definitely be a good one heading over to Cydia right now and grabbing the latest Substitute 0.0.6 update. Even if it is available prior to an Electra 1.1 release, it should definitely offer benefits and enhancements right now without warning.
