As soon as Apple dropped iOS 11.4.1, they updated Electra 1131 jailbreak to v1.0.3, bringing in support for iOS 11.4 beta firmwares.
A Tweet shared by the Electra Team’s Twitter account shortly before the release highlights that iOS 11.4 beta 3 is still being signed on the iPhone 7, iPhone 8, and iPhone X and that users can downgrade to it if they fancy fast access to an iOS 11 jailbreak:
Electra Team member CoolStar later added that this is the first time in more than a year that the community has had access to a jailbreak for a signed firmware version:
Here’s the complete changelog for Electra Jailbreak v1.0.3:
- Add support for 11.4 beta 1 – 11.4 beta 3 (multipath only tested on these firmwares)
Apple has fixed the vulnerability that has been used in the Electra Jailbreak for iOS 11.3.1 – iOS 11.2 in iOS 11.4 that has been released to the public, so you won’t be able to use Electra Jailbreak v1.0.3 to jailbreak it. You will need to downgrade to iOS 11.4 beta 1 – iOS 11.4 beta 3 to use it.
Notably, Apple released iOS 11.4.1 as a software update for its mobile devices on Monday, a firmware that Electra1131 does not currently support. Jailbreakers are advised to avoid iOS 11.4.1, as it patches valuable exploits used by the Electra1131 jailbreak tool.
At least 100,000 unique devices have been jailbroken with Electra thus far. If you haven’t already jailbroken your own handset with Electra1131, and would like to, then be sure to check out our in-depth tutorial.
