The new tool do comes with Cydia, and it is the first time that general users able to install and run Cydia on an iOS 11 device including iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.

You will also have to side-load the .ipa via Cydia Impactor in order to keep your device in the jailbreak mode. Here's how to install the jailbreak on your iOS 11 devices.
  1. Download the Cydia Impactor and Electra IPA on your computer, and then connect your iPhone to it and launch Cydia Impactor.
  2. Once the device showed up in the Cydia Impactor, drag and drop the IPA on it.
  3. Enter your Apple ID password and username (Don't turn on two-factor authentication unless you want to get errors)
  4. When it's complete to install the jailbreak, a message will be pop up, which you should unplug it.
  5. Go to your device's Home screen to launch the Electra app, if there's a error, go to the Settings - General - Device Management, next tap on your Apple ID, and tap the Trust button.
  6. Lastly, tap the Jailbreak button in the Electra, and enjoy it.
It's also worth to said that there are many packages are not supported by Electra and iOS 11, so make sure to check compatibility first. In the meantime, as suggested by CoolStar, for its best stability users should do a clean restore by using futurerestore before running Electra, which requires a saved blobs.
