Today, for the iOS 11.4.x (with the exception of iOS beta versions), the Electra team released the first open jailbreak. While we advise the use of unc0ver for iOS 11.4.x due to its use and increased support of the original Cydia substitute, we have yet to dive into a testing device to give you an overview of the first post. If you can’t wait any longer and have an iOS 11.4.x device, read it in order to jailbreak it.
What does Jailbreaking mean?
A Digital Rights Management (DRM) software layer on their products is used by many manufacturers of smartphones, tablets and consoles. This DRM either limits or exists for security reasons to use the software you can run on it. The process of hacking is to avoid DRM limitations by running “unauthorized” software and making other tweaks to your operating system. More technically, the jailbreak is thought of as the installation process, which, as Sauric explains, “is able to run the unsigned code by using a changed set of kernel patches (the kernel is the operating system’s supervisor).
The term “Jailbreak” was coined first by iPhone hackers to break the iPhone out from iTunes Jail. Since that time the word has more generally been used (somewhat wrongly) as referring to similar hacks made on other platforms such as Android, where it’s also known as “rooting.” In any event, whatever you’re calling it, the basic concept is the same.
iOS is a closed environment for better or for worse: Apps must adhere to Apple’s rigorous directives in order to make them available on the App Store. This restriction exists to some extent to protect yourself and retain the overall quality of applications. However, there are some apps that don’t make the final cut, but they should.
How to Jailbreak iOS 11.4.x with Electra
1) from the official website download the Electra 1141.ipa.
2) Plug your device in and start Cydia Impactor on your computer.
3) Drag the Electra application to Impactor to sideload once your plugged device has been listed in the Impactor.
4) If requested, enter your Apple ID. Then enter the password of your Apple ID if requested. You will need an app-specific password in this step if two-phase authentication is active on your account.
5) Once the application is on your device, head to the Settings> General > Profiles >[ YOUR APPLE ID] and click the Trust button.
6) Start your home screen with Electra.
7) Hit Jailbreak now to get the process started. Remember, any errors you may cross paths with are yours since this is the first version of the tool and not our suggestion.
8) After all, it worked for me for the first time on an iPhone 7 on iOS 11.4.1 without a single error. Cydia, you ought to see. You are supposed to see Cydia. Start it.
9) Remove repo666.ultrasnow.com, which can give you errors, and then install all major upgrades (we will leave you with the installation of Sileo.
10) Finally, to ensure everything works, install a package.
And there you have it!
During my brief time with Electra 1141, I haven’t faced any problems and kudos have to go to the team for their blazing release speed. The store of jailbreaking knowledge can profit more developers working on exploits and tools.
Finally, remember that the iOS 12.1.1 signing window is still open, so you can restore it to iTunes. Because an iOS 12.0-12.1.1 jailbreak is on the precipice, contemplate if you want to gamble devices on iOS 11.4.x’s the first edition of a tool and miss the signing window. If you are saving your blobs now, but do not want to take risks, think about skipping them. You will have to use future restore to jump from iOS 11.x-> iOS 12.1.1 later.
