If you are currently running iOS 11.2 to iOS 11.3.1 on iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, then you are in the luck of jailbreak device. Yes, CoolStar and his Electra team have finally released the Electra1131 jailbreak tool, and it comes with a functional Cydia app.

The tool contains two versions, one is for developers that require a developer account to use it, another one is the regular version, which means it doesn’t have to be using a developer account that we see it as the best option for daily users.


Unlike previous releases of jailbreak tools, Electra will install a functional Cydia during the jailbreak process. The Cydia, however, will only show tweaks that are compatible with iOS 11. This can prevent users from installing in-compatible add-ons that could crash your devices.

To jailbreak your iPhone or iPad, head over to Electra official site and download the most recent version of Electra1131, then download Cydia Impactor and launch it, connect an iOS device to your computer, drag Electra1131.ipa file over the Cydia Impactor window, signing your Apple ID, after the installation finished, open Settings app, then go to General → Profiles & Device Management, tap on Trust and launch Electra app, lastly, tap on Jailbreak!

According to the official Electra website, which was updated with a footnote about how the jailbreak tool would soon support iOS 11.3.1. So we urge you to update or downgrade to that version number.



The jailbreak support for iOS 11.3.1 will be obtained through the newly released tfp0 exploit discovered by security researcher Ian Beer. He is the same person responsible for the tfp0 exploit that found in iOS 11.0-11.1.2, which makes these versions jailbreak possible.

Coostar, who is developer behind Electra Jailbreak has recommended users who are not running jailbreak-able iOS 11.0-11.1.2 already to upgrade to iOS 11.3.1. Users should save their device’s SHSH blobs in a case when Apple close the signing window for iOS 11.3.1.

After the jailbreak community has been quiet lately, we finally heard the good news towards iOS 11 jailbreak. What’s your thought about it? So are you going to jailbreak your devices? Let us know in the comment below!

Apple has just stopped signing iOS 11.2.6, meaning it is no longer possible to downgrade an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to software versions older than latest iOS 11.3 update. However, A zero day exploit has been discovered in iOS 11.3 that could helpful in developing a jailbreak for it.

When Apple stops signing a particular firmware, it essentially means that iTunes won’t allow you to restore it anymore. Instead, you are then prompted to update to the latest available firmware. In this case, that's iOS 11.3, an update that introduces several new feature like Business Chat and "Battery Health".


On the other hand, as we stated earlier, a zero day exploit was found in iOS 11.3, revealed Alibaba's Zheng, who's the Senior Security Engineer for the company said on his Twitter. Current iOS 11.1.2 jailbreak is based on a zero day exploit that eventually made to the public by Google Project Zero’s Ian Beer.

We are not clear if Alibaba will release the expolit to the public, but it's unlikely because the Chinese company previously demoed an iOS 11.2.1 jailbreak without releasing it. Still, if Alibaba refused to give it to jailbreak developers, there is a big chance that the exploit will be found by others. We will keep eyes on it.

After several of beta of testings, developer and hacker CoolStar has finally released public version of the Electra jailbreak tool with compatibility for iOS 11.0 to iOS 11.1.2. 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.


It should be noted that it is a semi-untethered jailbreak, in other word, you will have to launch Electra app for the jailbreak to work every time you reboot your device for Cydia to work. 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.

According to CoolStar, who created Electra Jailbreak for iOS 11.0-.11.1.2 devices, recently tweeted that he'll be releasing Cydia for iOS 11 in the upcoming future after his significant strides in the right direction this week to upgrading APT, DPKG, and GNU with the system's support.

Got our patched Cydia ready to go. Just need to add metadata for APT & DPKG and we'll be able to build the bootstrap to test!

In order for Cydia to work correctly, the package manager app need relies on these three dependencies. In the meantime, Cydia's father Saurik is continue to working on an official update to Cydia as well as the Mobile Substrate for iOS 11 behind the scenes, but there is no updates for the project.


CoolStar is also in the work for an iOS 11.2.x jailbreak, he says that although a new exploit is required for 11.2.x, still most of the patches in Electra will be work on the new version. Electra is currently on beta 10, so that it shouldn't be long before Electra beta 11 with the patched Cydia gets released.

Ever since Ian Beer released an iOS 11 exploit in late 2017, the jailbreaking community has seen incredible progress in the past few months, Even through Apple increased security on their operating system and combined with a lot of the features iOS was previously missing finally being implemented, user still want to enjoy a jailbroken phone more conveniently.

The developer of the Electra jailbreak toolkit, CoolStarr recently confirmed that the iOS 11.2.x can be jailbroken with his tool which released a few weeks ago. He tweeted that those who are using 11.2. x should not upgrade and have a little patience.


According to Alibaba's Pandora Lab, they were able to jailbreak iOS 11.2.1 and iOS 11.2 on iPhone X. Unfortunately, Alibaba also declared that their work was only done for research purposes and the jailbreak will not be released. This lead CoolStar believe that iOS 11.2.2 can be jailbroken, those who are patient will soon hear news on this.

For anyone on 11.2.x, stay there. Although a new exploit is required for 11.2.x, most of the patches in Electra will work on 11.2.x

With that being said, it is still not clear if they were able to jailbreak iOS 11.2.2 as well or Apple has patched the security vulnerability utilized to jailbreak iOS 11.2.1. It remains to be perceived if hackers and jailbreak developers like CoolStar can find out the weaknesses utilized by the researchers.

Developer and iOS hacker CoolStar has released his Electra Jailbreak tool that's capable of jailbreaking all models of iPhone, iPad and iPod touch running iOS 11.0 all the way up to iOS 11.1.2. Even though the Electra Tool is available for download, but keep in mind that it is in beta and is intended for tweak developers and theme creators for now.

Like the LiberiOS jailbreak tool released last year, Electra doesn't install Cydia because it isn’t ready for iOS 11 devices just yet. As matter of fact, once if you have jailbroken your device you need to install tweaks and other stuff using SSH. Electra said to also excludes DPKG and APT, which are vital utilities that most jailbreakers rely on every day.


CoolStar says that Electra targets developers who want to begin updating their tweaks for iOS 11 ahead of the game. For everyday jailbreakers who don’t know what they are doing should stay away from using this tool. Cydia will be added with the public release if Saurik has updated Cydia for iOS 11.

As the Electra website points out, if you are a power user or a developer, you can install tweaks to your iOS device at /bootstrap/Library/SBInject using SSH, as for themes, it can be installed at /bootstrap/Library/Themes. Further of details about the jailbreak tool are available on the Electra Jailbreak’s website.

Developer Jonathan Levin recently released an iOS 11 jailbreak tool, dubbed LiberiOS. It's capable of jailbreaking iOS 11.0.x all the way up to iOS 11.1.2. And the initial release is intended for more advanced users only, as it does not yet bundle Cydia, because Saurik needs to update the app so it can be support iOS 11.


Ian Beer of Google’s project zero is the man behind this jailbreak breakthrough. It is this legacy that has been taken forward by people like Jonathan Levin who then produce the jailbreak and make it available to the public. Since we know the man behind the idea, so let's jump into the tutorial of the jailbreak tool.
  1. Connect your iOS devices to your PC or Mac, once it's connected, make sure to back up in case there's an error during the jailbreak.
  2. Once the backup is ready, launch Cydia Impactor on your computer and then drag the LiberiOS jailbreak IPA file into the interface.
  3. Enter your Apple ID credentials and wait for Cydia Impactor to sideload the signed app on your connected device.
  4. After the sideload is completed, go to Settings - General - Profile(s) & Device Managemen, and click the profile allied with the jailbreak app, and tap on trust this app.
  5. Return to the Home screen where you installed the LiberiOS app launch it, tap the Do It button in the center of the app and wait. After that, it will appear a screen which shows the jailbreak was successful.
It's worth to note that this jailbreak is semi-untethered, which means you will have to put your device on jailbreak mode every time you reboot. Also, the jailbreak app will expire after a week after that you will have to resign and re-sideload it. Happy jailbreaking and Happy New Year!

As of latest, Abraham Masri, who the developer behind the success of Saigon jailbreak and Houdini semi-jailbreak, has been pulled off an iOS 11.1.2 jailbreak to.panga, thanks to the async_wake exploit, which released by Google's Ian Beer.

The new iOS jailbreak is based on async_wake and is co-designed by xerub. Its binaries and libraries come from Jonathan Levin and CoolStart, among others. It's currently released for developers only, the public users can expect a full public release in the weeks or months to come once ready.


Based on the comments in the Reddit thread, it seems that some of users were able to use To.panga to jailbreak their iOS device but it hasn’t worked for everyone. So I perform waiting for either John Levin to release the iOS 11.1.2 jailbreak, or wait for To.panga to be more stable.

As for a reason why Masri intended the first release for developers because it allows them to understand what is going on behind the scenes as far as the jailbreak is concerned. In addition, he said he opened it to developers so they could build something more stable and functional based on what is available.

Masri also mentioned that the Cydia is probably not going to work with to.panga due to the structure, as it needs to wait for Cydia creator Jay "Saurik" Freeman to provide updates for the tool down the road. If you want to learn more about iOS 11.1.2 jailbreak to.panga, you can head to its official GitHub page.

According to Chinese's Alibaba blog post, their Pandora Lab has achieved an untethered jailbreak for iOS 11.2 as well as iOS 11.2.1. Pandora Lab Head Song Yang has confirmed to Redmond Pie that the iOS 11.2.1 jailbreak is untethered, which means that the device doesn’t need to be re-jailbroken every time it’s restarted.

They have shown their jailbreak running iOS on an iPhone X. In the photo shared by the Pandora Lab team, they show Cydia running on the iPhone X. Alibaba Pandora Lab team, which was established in 2017 has created this jailbreak tool and have called it ‘Pandora’ as can be seen in the image above.


Yang said that his team’s jailbreak is different from other jailbreak released over the past two years as “Pandora Lab jailbreak is ‘Untethered'”. He has made it clear that his team won’t provide any jailbreak tool and they are limited to security research purposes only.

Although we were able to jailbreak iOS 11.2 quickly, we were limited to security research purposes, our team won’t provide any jailbreak tool.”

This isn' the first time that iOS11 has been jailbroken. Back in November, Liang Chen of security firm KeenLab showed off a jailbroken iPhone X running iOS 11.1.1 at the Power of Community hacking conference in Seoul, South Korea. And just a few days ago, Ian Beer, who's a security researcher from Google's Project Zero has released iOS 11.1.2 exploit.

Ian Beer, a Google security researcher who works for the Project Zero team, has released an iOS 11.1.2 exploit called "tfp0," Beer believes could be the basis for a future iOS 11.1.2 jailbreak. He says it should work on all iOS devices running iOS 11.1.2 or below, though he only personally tested iPhone 7, iPhone 6s, and a sixth-generation iTouch.

This exploit gives complete control of the core of the operating system, though what Beer released is not a full iOS 11 jailbreak as some had hoped, but what he has shared could potentially be used to create a jailbreak in the future. Beer tweeted today for sharing the details on the exploit.


Since iOS 11.2 was released by Apple, iOS 11.1.2 is no longer the current version of iOS, but they still signing iOS 11.1.2 at this time. Apple will likely stop signing the older update in the near future, and its end could come sooner now that further information on the tfp0 exploit has been released.

While the popularity of jailbreaking has waned from both users and developer perspective. And now both ModMy and ZodTTD/MacCiti, which provided apps, themes, and tweaks for jailbroken iOS devices, shut down in November. Through a hacker demoed iOS 11 jailbreak couple month ago, but the hacker unlikely to release iOS 11 jailbreak.

According to Motherboard, Google's Project Zero is a team focused on finding software flaws in other companies, and the team is set to release an exploit it recently found in iOS 11. While the vulnerability has been patched with iOS 11.2, the exploit may allow for the first publicly available jailbreak for iOS 11.


Google, Apple's biggest rival is studying iOS vulnerabilities maybe sound a little weird. However, this is exactly what Project Zero plans to do, Ian Beer, a security researcher at the team, is a renowned iOS bug hunter, who says Google will soon be making the exploit public

Five of the 15 security issues fixed in the latest iOS 11.2 update are handled by Ian Beer. This week, a Tweet from Ian Beer said he'll share more information soon and recommends that those interested in kernel security for iOS 11 to keep a device on 11.1.2 or earlier version.

The so-called "tfp0" is stands for ‘task for pid 0,’ or the kernel task port, which gives you control of the core of the operating system.” It's predicted that Beer won’t share a “full, untethered jailbreak, meaning you will have to plug the phone into a computer to exploit it everytime it boots up.”


However, people in field of information security believe what Beer does release will allow for others to create a full jailbreak for iOS 11. Tencent’s Keen Lab researchers says that from Beer’s exploit it will “definitely be doable to make a complete jailbreak, especially for iPhone 6s and previous ones.”

Although we saw the jailbreak demo for iOS 11.1 last month, it has not yet been released publicly. As for the development of Ian Beer, developer Jonathan Levin and others have prepared resources to help interested parties use the tfp0 version.

Although the world of jailbreaking has come to a slight standstill, but a developer named Abraham Masri had give us hope, as he released a “semi-jailbreak”, his tool called Houdini achieves some of the effects of a jailbreak, whilst avoiding the hardest challenges and pitfalls which constructing the full package would bring.


If you have a 64-bit iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch and happen to be on iOS 10 all the way up till iOS 10.3.2 then Houdini is a new solution that you should look into. It comes with an interesting twist too.

It is best to classify Houdini as a ‘semi-jailbreak’ rather than a jailbreak in the first place. Basically, it will partially ‘jailbreak’ your device, allowing you to install tweaks or themes that do not require Cydia Substrate to work. However, Houdini can be installed via Cydia Impactor which is free to download for both PC and Mac.

By entering the Houdini website, you can grab a beta version of the Houdini .ipa to try for yourself. If you’re interested, feel free to check it out. Again, this's a beta, the developer won't responsible for any mess up, some features might not work in beta.” I personally would avoid to install on my devices just in case.


To install Houdini, first thing first is download the .ipa file and Cydia Impactor, open Cydia Impactor and connect your computer , then drag the Houdini.ipa file onto the Cydia Impactor window. Next step is Enter your Apple ID (email and password). On your iDevices tap on Settings and trust the certificate, open the app and then click on “Start”
