Electra 1.0.2 released to fix the APT 0.7 error

Coolstar has released Electra 1.0.2 jailbreak to fix the APT 0.7 strict (lib) error that was affecting many jailbreakers. The issue seems to have occurred as Jay Freeman aka saurik released an APT update which broke Cydia on devices that were jailbroken using Electra jailbreak.

Citing the official Electra web page, version 1.0.2 includes the following changes:

  • Fix false positives where Electra would think Topanga was installed when only LiberiOSwas
  • Prevent loading packages from Saurik’s repo (since Cydia can’t be patched to remove it)
  • Fix APT 0.7 Strict (lib) on devices that may have already updated to the broken copy from Saurik’s repo

As CoolStar explains on Twitter, Electra 1.0.2 refuses connections to Saurik’s repository.

coolstar has also mentioned on Twitter that “on Electra 1.0.2, Saurik’s repo will fail to load with “Connection Refused. This is normal.” He also goes on to add that “if Saurik’s repo appears empty on Electra 1.0.2 and there’s an error loading Saurik’s repo, this is normal. This is a feature. Not a bug.“.

The update also issues a hot fix for those that might’ve inadvertently installed the APT 0.7 update from Cydia before learning that it could cause problems and resolves an issue where Electra would throw false positives about Topanga being installed when it really wasn’t. This should benefit anyone that might’ve used the LiberiOS jailbreak tool initially and decided to switch to Electra.

You can download Electra 1.0.2 IPA from the official website. You will need to use Cydia Impactor to sideload the Electra IPA and then run the process to jailbreak your iOS device.
