Electra jailbreak

Electra for iOS 11.0-11.3.1 is out and in wide use. It seems to work very smoothly for most, perhaps due to the extensive beta period, but it isn't without some reported problems.

LiberiOS jailbreak tool for iOS 11.0-11.1.2 receives an update, but still no Cydia

Initially released back in December, LiberiOS utilizes the tfp0 exploit publicized by security researcher Ian Beer last year to pwn iOS 11.0-11.1.2 devices.

This weekend, LiberiOS received one of its first updates, bringing it up to version 11.0.3. Citing the tool's developer, Jonathan Levin (@Morpheus______), the new version squashes a few bugs found in the previous release, among other things.

Gone are the days of radio silence, followed by the single release of a finished jailbreak tool for all devices. As the scene moves from funded teams working in secrecy, to public exploits being worked on co-operatively by individual developers in an open forum, the workflow has also changed.
