Despite my warning, a lot of users installed the leaked IPA file of Electra on their main devices. Here’s how you can completely wipe that file off of your device.
What is DeleteElectraRC?
DeleteElectraRC is an uninstaller developed specifically for users who are using the leaked version of Electra RC1. It is developed by killy.
For the who don’t know, Coolstar is all set to implement a DRM system in the upcoming RC4 version of Electra. It will block users who are currently using the leaked RC1.x IPA file from updating.
While it’s not necessary to remove it, it’s something I would recommend doing as soon as possible.
If Cydia is working fine on your device, you can keep using it. However, if you like to prepare your device for the upcoming version, download DeleteElectraRC.
- version 3 (ZIP package)
- iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch
