What is Ext3nderElectrified?
Ext3nderElectrified is an automatic app signer application for iOS 11-11.1.2. It is developed by “Midnight Chips” and Marco.
This application allows you to sign your jailbreak tool and any other third-party apps that you may install on your device. On-device signing comes in handy when you don’t have a computer or laptop with you.
Remember, it’s a hacked-up version of the original Ext3nder Installer tweak by Julio Verne.
Since Julio was waiting for Saurik to release Cydia, other developers ported it over to iOS 11 in the meantime.
You can try it on your device using the download links below. Remember to use the correct version depending on the version of Electra you have.
- If you are on a beta version such as beta 11, use the Beta version. The installation tutorial for the beta version and the RC version is exactly the same.
- If you are already using the leaked Electra RC1 IPA file, use the RC version. Ensure you install iOS Toolchain and all other core packages from Electra’s default repository except Assuan, APT 7 Strict, GNU Cryptography, GNPG 2 and GPG Errors, and KSBA packages.
- iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch
- Electra jailbreak toolkit
- Internet connection
- Filza file manager
- ZipApp free
How to install Ext3nderElectrified without computer
Extract the ZIP archive
Step 1 Download the ZIP package using the links above on your device. If you can’t download the ZIP file, try switching to the desktop version of Github.
Step 2 Open and extract the archive using ZipApp free app (available on the App Store) in its default directory.
Step 4 Select and copy this folder to the root directory (/) of your device.
Execute the installation script
Step 5 Open iTerminal application and select the SSH option.
Step 6 Turn on Wifi and enter the following details. Press Connect to enter the terminal.
- IP Address – 127.0.0.1
- Port – 2222
- Username – root
- Password – alpine
Step 7 Enter the following commands once you are in the terminal. Press return key after typing each command.
chmod +x ./install.sh
If the script displays the “Unable to Open Extender.VPN.dylib” error, you can safely ignore it. The developer will fix this message in the upcoming version of Ext3nderElectrified.
Sign third-party applications
Step 8 You can now launch the app from your home screen.
Step 9 Navigate to the Installed tab and start signing apps on-device.
Step 10 You can remove this app from your device by deleting its core files. Simply SSH into your device using the aforementioned details and run the following commands –
rm -rf /Extender.app
rm -rf /Library/Switches/Ext3nderSwitch.bundle
Step 11 Delete the .app folder you extracted to your root folder in “step 4”.
Although it works just as well as the original application, it is not a complete replacement. If you can’t wrap your head around the installation process, I suggest waiting for the official release.
