CoolStar has given a new reason to rejoice for the iOS users by announcing the release of its developer-focused Electra Jailbreak Tool for devices that use iOS 11.0 to iOS 11.1.2 including iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Electra is said to utilize the same open-source tfp0 exploit that was released by the security researcher Ian Beer last year.
The Electra Jailbreak Tool shares many similarities and some differences with the LiberiOS jailbreak tool that was also released last year. It isn’t ready for the iOS 11 devices at the moment, so it doesn’t install Cydia. Electra Jailbreak also excludes DPKG and APT that are known to be vital utilities for most of the jailbreakers that they use on daily basis. This is no regular jailbreak. In fact, the release focused on the developers and themers.
According to the CoolStar, Electra Jailbreak targets the developers who wish to update their tweaks for iOS 11 ahead of the game. It was said, “Everyday jailbreakers who only want to mod their device(s) with tweaks should probably hold off for now.”
Electra is a toolkit that the developers can use to test packages for system compatibilities and updating their tweaks game in comparison to the daily users who had to mod their devices with tweaks.
