After a lot of expectation, the latest Electra jailbreak version, called Electra1131, is officially available for download. It also supports the iOS 11.3.1 in the jailbreak. A whole range of Apple devices from iPhone 5s to the iPhone X is supported by this tool and there is also Cydia included.
Couples of months ago witnessed the appearance of a number of jailbreak tools, with some of these being flash in the pan fixes, and the others have still been able to keep functioning, thanks to scheduled updates. They have managed to make it over a dozen of firmware rollouts.
A few months ago, it seemed that Electra would also become one of the former, since its developer, CoolStar was disappointed with the community as they were not thankful enough for their tool. However, Electra is now gaining traction when time moves on.
What users can see a much improved Electra version over the old simple version as the new one juiced up with the important components and allows Apple’s 64-bit iOS 11.3.1 devices on to run free.
Previously, there were some rumors that the latest Electra update would only work with iPhone 6, 6 Plus and 5s running iOS 11.3.1 version, but all these rumors were squashed as its developer, CoolStar confirmed that the tool supported all Apple 64-bit devices running iOS 11.3.1 version. The latest Electra update not only just works with the iOS 11.3.1 but also supports older firmwares like iOS 11.2.
