Jailbreak iOS 11.2 – iOS 11.3.1 Using Electra
Step 1. It is recommended that you enable Airplane Mode, disable Siri, and reboot your device before running Electra on it.
Step 2. Download Electra jailbreak tool from the links below. Do note that there are two different versions of Electra tool. While both give the same result for the user, one requires a paid Apple developer account and one doesn’t. Choose the right tool carefully.
- Download Electra1131 (Developer Account version)
- Download Electra1131 (non-Developer Account version)
Step 3. Download Cydia Impactor tool from its official website here.
Step 4. Connect your iPhone to your computer and launch Cydia Impactor tool.
Step 5. Once your iOS device is detected by Cydia Impactor drag and drop Electra1131 IPA file you downloaded in step 2 with it. When requested, add your Apple ID credentials and wait for Cydia Impactor to go through the necessary process of sideloading the Electra IPA to your device.
Step 6. Once the Electra jailbreak app is sideloaded, you need to make sure that it can be launched on the device. To do this, on the device itself, navigate to Settings > General > Profile(s) and Device Management and find the profile associated with the Electra IPA that you just sideloaded. Select Trust and then Trust again on the resulting alert. You can now head back to the Home screen where the Electra app icon is resting and tap on it to launch it.
Step 7. Electra will launch like any other app and provide you with its main interface. You should notice a button titled Jailbreak in the middle of the screen. Tap this button to begin the process, and also make sure that the ‘Tweaks’ toggle is set to the On position.
Step 8. After a short while, you will notice Electra rebooting/respringing the device automatically. This is normal. Once it comes back to the Lock screen, unlock the device, launch Electra again and hit “Jailbreak” again to continue the jailbreaking process.
Step 9.Allow Electra to go about its business and do all of the heavy liftings that you need it to do. Once the process has completed, you should be notified that you have successfully jailbroken the device, and should also have a Cydia icon on the Home screen.
