Tie yourself to the ground because the news contained in this post is so exciting that you might start flying with enthusiasm. The waiting period is finally over. The latest version of Electra Jailbreak – Electra for iOS 11.3.1 – is out and is completely compatible with iOS devices up to iPhone X and even has Cydia support. Post release of the Kernel Exploit for iOS 11.3.1 by Ian Beer, Coolstar had officially announced that it has commenced working vigorously on updating the existing Electra Jailbreak tool to support iOS 11.3.1 and since then the jailbreak community is waiting with extreme patience for the same to get released.
Finally, the patience of jailbreak lovers is rewarded by Coolstar by releasing the Electra Jailbreak tool for iOS 11.3.1. Another cool thing is that the latest update to Electra not only supports iOS 11.3.1 but all iOS versions below that, down to iOS 11.2. If you haven’t downgraded to iOS 11.3.1 yet you can do the same, provided, Apple is still signing the firmware, without using BLOBS from here. Being a jailbreak fan you must be knowing that in previous versions of Electra Jailbreak, Cydia was not a part of the package and had to be installed separately in order to access your favorite apps and tweaks. It is, undoubtedly, hard work and tested your patience further as you had to wait for updates from Saurik. This time, Electra for iOS 11.3.1 is complete in all respects.
The latest update to Electra comes with Cydia as a part of the package itself along with Substitute Framework – a replacement for Cydia substrate. So, all you need to do is to jailbreak your device using the latest Electra tool and you are done. Start installing your favorite tweaks right away after that.
