Coolstar’s iOS 11.4.1 jailbreak was finally released. Even though for that version of iOS, theirs is not the first jailbreak tool, if you are a person who prefers Electra tools over other developers’ creations, you will be pleased to hear the news. A publicly-available jailbreak for iOS 12 is still yet to come so this is the best we can get.
Electra 1.2.3 supports iOS 11.4.1 jailbreak
Electra 1.2.3 is the newest version of the jailbreak tool from Coolstar, and it is compatible with iOS 11.0 through iOS 11.4.1. iOS 11.4.1 was supported for the first time by Electra 1.2.0, but people who tried it claim it was causing some out of nowhere crashes.
To fix the crashing problem, as a result, Electra 1.2.1 was rolled out rather quickly based on what Redmond Pie says. Since then, the website of the Electra team has been updated with additional versions of their iOS 11.4.1 jailbreak. Now the async_wake so jailbreaking 11.0-11.1.2 works properly and the nonce generator button not working issue has been solved.
In July last year was released the first Electra IPA, and the first jailbreak to support iOS 11 through 11.3.1 was also Electra IPA. Pwn20wnd released its unc0ver jailbreak after that release, and their creation seemed to have a better stability than Electra.
Details on Electra’s iOS 11.4.1 jailbreak
According to Redmond Pie Electra enjoys a core following. What they mean by that is that Electra’s iOS 11.4.1 jailbreak being released will make many people happy. Because the jailbreak tool from Electra does not require users to have an Apple developer account anymore to be allowed to use it, it is great. In addition to that, on Twitter, the Electra team said that their tool couldn’t be compared with the vfs exploit redundant as now it employs the newer voucher_swap exploit.
