It’s time that we can put our hands on Cydia For iOS 11 Electra Jailbreak as its release date was teased along with screenshots showing it on iPhone X running iOS 11.1.2. So, get ready for another amazing jailbreak experience.
If you are among those who do not know what exactly is Electra, it’s a jailbreak that works on all the 64-bit devices running iOS 11.0 through iOS 11.1.2 and this includes the latest iPhone X model as well. The jailbreak is based around the exploit that was discovered by Ian Beer and features modifications and patches from CoolStar and several others in the community.
Earlier today, the Cydia bootstrap was sent by CoolStar to @nullriver in order to do all the testing on it. Once it was tested, @nullriver came up with the report featuring screenshots that confirmed Cydia is working perfectly fine on iPhone X with iOS 11.1.2 and jailbroken using Electra. After the confirmation, CoolStar tweeted “2/15/2018” and that, presumably, was the indication of ETA for Cydia support coming to Electra jailbreak for iOS 11.
It’s been month since we’re anticipating this Cydia support as Saurik was the first to confirm working on it about a couple of months back. However, for more than a month we haven’t received any updates from Saurik as to how much he has progressed on it. Regardless of why we haven’t received any updates from him, the news at the moment is that we’ll soon be having Cydia support in iOS 11 devices that have been jailbroken using Electra and all that would be possible through the efforts made by CoolStar.
If you are concerned about the black bars appearing on Cydia when running it on the latest iPhone X, here’s how CoolStar has explained it:
For those who’re wondering, the Cydia version that comes with Electra features letterboxing black bars when used on the iPhone X; we’d prefer not to change it until after the release as this build of Cydia has been successful through testing and works.
For this jailbreak, you’ll obviously be required to have an iPhone that runs iOS 11.1.2. But if you do not own a device running that version of iOS then, unfortunately, you’ll not be able to take advantage of this new release. In fact, you can’t even get your device on iOS 11.1.2 anymore as it’s not been signed by Apple anymore.
However, if your device is running iOS 11.1.2 already, you can simply proceed with the jailbreak and enjoy using Cydia on your device once the support is available – which is expectedly going to be on 15th February.
So stay tuned until then and see what comes next!
