CoolStar updated the iOS 11 jailbreak tool Electra which has Cydia shortly after the release of version 1.0 and 1.0.1 releases. The final version came out this morning, but does not work at everyone. Version 1.0.2, released a few minutes ago, corrects the shot.

The first bug fixed is the one with the message “Error: topanga” which is displayed when the jailbreak is done. Electra thinks that To.panga (another jailbreak) is installed on the device, while this is not the case. It was already possible to work around the problem by modifying files, in particular SSH. It is now corrected directly in Electra.

Electra 1.0.2 changelog from the website:

– Fix false positives where Electra would think topanga was installed when only liberiOS was
– Prevent loading pacakges from saurik’s repo (since Cydia can’t be patched to remove it)
– Fix APT 0.7 Strict (lib) on devices that may have already updated to the broken copy from saurik’s repo

The update also proposes modifications at the level of the APT 0.7 package. There is the “official” version of Saurik and the modified version of CoolStar. This is the one to install on his device because that of Saurik is not compatible with Electra. The new version of Electra will correct the problems for those who mistakenly install the Saurik APT 0.7 package.

Finally,  Saurik is blocking Cydia on purpose to avoid downloading packages that are not compatible. An error will be displayed with each refresh of Cydia, but it’s normal.
