How To Fix Error: Topanga in Electra iOS 11/11+ Jailbreak

As you may have known one of the best Jailbreaks Electra now comes with Cydia has been accompanied along with its payload but somehow not everyone experiencing the best of it. Unfortunately, this had reported by some users who had used to. Pangaea or LiberOS on their devices, which has been showing some sort of errors with Electra jailbreak. So, as per now this problem has been resolved and can easily be done with small alterations.

But, before going directly into the methods about resolving the issue, I suggest the users to please try to jailbreak you device fully with the latest Electra i.e. version 1.0.1 before diving into the main procedures. One more thing if any one of user has used Liber OS on their device previously, then as per developer CoolStar’s advice it is necessary to use FilzaEscaped, or similar, to navigate to etc/dropbear and delete that file/directory.

Why Does Electra Detect Topanga Jailbreak?

Developer CoolStar has added DRM frameworks so that it can detect any kind of malicious thing in to.panga jailbreak. As Electra is an open-source tool and anyone has license to access its files. Then to. Panga installation will check some sort of files is present or not in your file directory.


If files are present then the process will give “true” value which means that the jailbreaking process failed and in case none of the files are present then the jailbreaking process will be completed. Therefore, it is the most important thing to remove the files if we want to bypass the DRM framework.
