As Apple is getting closer to launching iOS 12 to the general public, the hacker known as CoolStar is adding the finishing touches to a new iOS 11.3.1 jailbreak. The hacker managed to successful jailbreak iOS 11.3.1, but he still needs to patch some bugs before releasing it for everyone to download. On the bright side of things, CoolStar keeps jailbreak fans updated with the latest news and it looks like the jailbreak tool will arrive sooner than expected.
Electra iOS 11.3.1 Jailbreak
The latest news from CoolStar are showing that the hacker is planning to launch the highly anticipated Electra iOS 11.3.1 Jailbreak straight to public release. This means that there won’t be a beta or developer version of the tool and that jailbreak fans will be able to install a fully functional Cydia right from the start.
Three Copies of the Tool
Currently, there are three copies of Electra iOS 11.3.1. However, CoolStar said that he doesn’t feel like launching the beta and developer versions is worth it and he will only launch the final version. In addition, CoolStar is advising iPhone owners to switch to iOS 11.1.2 until then.
Cydia is Running Successfully
We should also mention that a team member of Electra known as “nullpixel” recently shared a couple of screenshots that showed Cydia running on iOS 11.3.1. The screenshots were accompanied by the following message: “This feels really good! @coolstarorg good work on the bug, @Pwn20wnd great cli to exploit”.
Nullpixel said that the reason why the public version of Electra iOS 11.3.1 is not released already is because the hackers are waiting on a rootFS remount that will be delivered by Jonathan Levin. We don’t know when Jonathan Levin will finish the rootFS remount, but we will keep readers updates as soon as that happens!
