Ian Beer discovered a kernel exploit in Apple’s iOS 11.3.1 and the security analyst decided to unveil it to the entire jailbreaking community. Seeing this, CoolStar didn’t waste any time and started working on an Electra iOS 11.3.1 jailbreak tool and the hacker has already been able to crack the operating system. However, there are still some issues that CoolStar needs to fix before releasing the tool.
Electra iOS 11.3.1 Jailbreak
A couple of days ago CoolStar announced that he managed to create a successful Electra iOS 11.3.1 jailbreak tool. Not just that, but CoolStar posted a couple of screenshots of an iPhone 8 which was running on the said operating system and this got jailbreak fans excited. On the downside of things, CoolStar said that he still needed a couple of more days before he could launch the tool.
Even though CoolStar’s Electra iOS 11.3.1 jailbreak was successful in installing Cydia, there were still some bugs that he needed to fix. CoolStar said that he doesn’t want to launch an incomplete jailbreak tool and that removing bugs was the next thing to do. However, this isn’t the only thing that CoolStar announced.
Direct Public Release
While jailbreak fans might be upset with the fact that CoolStar is taking his time with the highly anticipated Electra iOS 11.3.1 jailbreak, the hacker said that he will launch the tool directly to public release. Therefore, there will not be a public beta or developer build and jailbreak fans will be able to install it right from the start.
We should also mention that CoolStar is advising iPhone owners to install iOS 11.1.2 on their smartphones in order to be ready for when the Electra iOS 11.3.1 comes out. Nonetheless, we will keep readers updated about CoolStar’s latest announcements.
