Undoubtedly, Filza is one of the staples in every jailbreak setup. A new version of Filza called FilzaElectracuted has just been released with full root permissions. Download it for your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch below.
What is FilzaElectracuted?
FilzaElectracuted is a new version of Filza file manager that is optimized for Electra jailbreak. It is developed by Bas van Turnhout and Jake James.
Earlier versions of Filza like the “Jailed” and “Escaped” versions had some limitations.
For example, the “Jailed” version lacked proper root entitlements whereas the “Escaped” version didn’t run from the root Applications folder.
This new version removes all those limitations and roadblocks.
Above all, you don’t need to sideload this app after every seven days because it runs from the root Applications folder.
Moreover, the Electracuted version, as its name suggests, is fully compatible and optimized for Electra toolkit. You can grab its ZIP package below.
- Warning – Although the installation process is safe, it is quite complicated for the average user. I recommend using older versions for the time being.
Which firmware does it support?
This new file manager supports the following iOS firmware versions on all 64-bit devices.
- iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch
- A compatible firmware
- Electra jailbreak toolkit
- FilzaEscaped file manager
- An on-device archive extractor
How to install FilzaElectracuted on iOS 11-11.1.2
1. Extract the ZIP archive
Step 1 Ironically, this new file manager requires your device to have FilzaEscaped. You can install it from this link.
Step 2 Download and install ZipApp application from the App Store. This app will allow you to complete the installation process having to use a PC or computer.
Step 3 Download the FilzaElectracuted ZIP archive using the download link above on your device.
Step 4 Open it using ZipApp and extract it to its default “Documents” section. DO NOT open this archive with Dropbox because it will further complicate things.
2. Transfer the necessary files
Step 5 Open FilzaEscaped and search for “electracuted” from your root folder. It will then display the archive and its contents.
Step 6 Copy and paste bash binary file from /bootstrap/bin/ to /bin.
Step 7 Copy and paste Filza.app folder to /Applications.
Step 8 Copy authorize.sh to / (root folder). If you are unable to find it, search for “authorize.sh” from the root folder.
3. Run the installation script
Step 9 Tap on “i” icon present in authorize.sh script, scroll down and go to Sticky. Change its permissions to 0777 to allow full access.
Step 10 Now tap authorize.sh to execute the installation bash script. When it displays the “operation may be unsafe” warning, tap Continue.
Step 11 That’s pretty much it! The app should now appear on your home screen.
Step 12 (Optional) If the app doesn’t appear or it displays a white screen, restart your Springboard and run the uicache command from SSH. For those who don’t know, you can SSH into your device with the iTerminal App Store application.
