Electra jailbreak tool updated to resolve an issue on iOS 11.0 – 11.1.2

It was only yesterday that the Electra Team pushed a significant update to the Electra jailbreak with initial support for the Sileo package installer and a bevy of bug fixes and performance improvements, but the team is still fine-tuning the iOS 11-centric jailbreak tool as we speak.

Citing a Tweet shared by the Electra Team Wednesday evening, one out of the two available Electra jailbreak tools was updated once again, this time to version 1.1.0-2, with a fix for a jailbreaking issue on iOS 11.0-11.1.2:

As it would seem, the update fixes a missing file that was supposed to be present in version 1.1.0 but was forgotten before release.

From what we can gather, this particular file was already present in the build of Electra made explicitly for iOS 11.2-11.4 beta 3, so an update for that tool was unnecessary. This is why the update (version 1.1.0-2) is only available for the build of Electra made for iOS 11.0-11.1.2.

Because this is a public release, all Electra users running iOS 11.0-11.1.2 are advised to download and run the latest version of the jailbreak tool over their existing installation via Cydia Impactor. Those using Electra on iOS 11.2-11.4 beta 3 can carry on with their current jailbreak as if nothing ever happened.

If you meet the criteria above, you can download the latest version of Electra for iOS 11.0-11.1.2 below:
