Earlier this week, there have been news from CoolStar, the hacker creator of the iOS 11 jailbreak, and his new update on the jailbreak tool Electra for iOS 11.3.1. It was two days ago when we confirmed that there were only a few days to launch the application officially, and the day has arrived.
The Electra 1131 tool for iOS 11.3.1 jailbreak is now available on the official CoolStar website. Currently there are two versions of the tool: on the one hand, the one that performs jailbreaking on devices with iOS 11-11.1.2, and the one launched today that allows Cydia to be installed on devices with versions of iOS 11.2-11.3.1.
The exploit used by CoolStar was discovered by Ian Beer, the same hacker who worked on the exploit of the first version of the tool. The process is very simple and is in two versions, one for developers and one for normal users, all available on the official website of Electra. At the moment there are more than 20,000 people who have already used Electra, and every hour rises more and more.
The creation of this jailbreak has been a hard process that CoolStar has shared with all his followers in social networks. From the discovery of the security hole to the disappointment of the developer community by leaking their tool through the creation of this second jailbreak with a renewed desire to offer something for the community without the need to receive anything in return. Although it is true that there is a section on the web where you can donate for future projects.
