Electra updated to version 1.2.2 with build number fix & other improvements

electra jailbreak

It was only a few hours ago that the Electra Team released Electra 1.2.0 with preliminary support for iOS 11.4-11.4.1, and we’re already seeing some of the first updates to the iOS 11-centric jailbreak tool post-release.

The Electra Team announced the updates via Twitter Wednesday afternoon, highlighting some of the changes that come along with them:

The official changelog detailing the changes from both Electra updates can be found below:


– Fix async_wake so jailbreaking 11.0-11.1.2 works properly

– Fix nonce generator button not working


– Fix build number so 11.4 – 11.4.1 works properly

As expected, version 1.2.1 fixes the problem CoolStar mentioned earlier about forgetting to include support for the newer iOS builds.

Version 1.2.2, on the other hand, brings some bug fixes and improvements to the updated jailbreak tool – more specifically having to do with async_wake and the nonce generator. Jailbreaking should now work as expected when deploying the tool.

If you’re interested in using Electra to jailbreak iOS 11.4.x, then you can download it now from the Electra Team’s website. Alternatively, Pwn20wnd’s unc0ver jailbreak tool now supports iOS 11.4.x in the first v3.0.0 beta preview, and you could opt to wait for the public release of unc0ver instead.
