Filza was never updated for iOS 11 firmware and acts iffy if you try to run on your Apple device. Here’s a quick fix for that issue.

Why is Filza (Jailed/Escaped) not working properly on iOS 11?
Both the “Jailed” and “Escaped” versions come with their own exploits. This is the reason behind why you can run it without a jailbreak.
Therefore, you can have difficulties while opening it because the exploit is already there.
You might experience crashes or get a white blank screen once you open it.
In some cases, it can also cause the device to reboot.
Here are a few fixes that you can try on your device.
How to fix Filza crashing on iOS 11
1. Method 1 – Install modified IPAPatchFramework (recommended)
Step 1 Download the modified IPAPatchFramework here. This file is developed by 1GamerDev.
Step 2 Download FilzaEscaped IPA file from here.
Step 3 Change its extension to .zip and extract this archive to any location with 7Zip. You must have a computer to do this.
Step 4 Navigate to this location – /Payload/Filza.app/Dylibs.
Step 5 Replace the IPAPatchFramework file present here with the modified file from step 1. If you don’t know how to do that, simply drag the new file over there and confirm.
Step 6 Create a ZIP archive of this Filza_r_w folder again and add IPA extension at its end.
Step 7 Sideload this IPA file with Cydia Impactor. If you don’t have a computer or PC, leave a comment below and I will upload this file as soon as possible.
2. Method 2 – Download version 2
There are two different versions of FilzaEscaped file manager. You can try version 2 given here if the current version doesn’t work for you.
Some users report that version 2 is working just fine whereas version 1 is not. The developer is yet to provide a plausible reason as to why this happens.
3. Method 3 – Reboot in non-jailbreak mode
As explained above, rebooting in non-jailbreak mode will certainly fix the crash issue. The exploit won’t run and Filza will get a chance to inject its own exploit on your device’s system.
4. Method 4 – Downgrade Electra to beta 6
Coolstar disabled root access functionality with Filza in the latest beta.
So if you experience issues with the latest beta versions, downgrade it to beta 6.
5. Method 5 – Use an SFTP client
If you still can’t get it working, you must use a dedicated SFTP client. SFTP clients like WinSCP or Cyberduck are are easy to use and are more powerful than any iOS app could ever be.
These clients will allow you to access your whole root filesystem and copy or move files.
This is more of an alternative, not a proper fix.
Remember, this doesn’t mean that the app would have a high success rate. However, this will ensure the app can at least open after several tries.

Are only sideloaded apps crashing?
Hello, whenever I open Filza escaped it just opens a white screen for about 3 seconds and then closes. Could you email me one that works because I do not have a computers. Many thanks
Try using the FilzaJailed from Panda Helper VIP.
Nope, still isn’t working
Try the Electracuted version.
I can’t get that unless I get FilzaEscaped
When is going to arrive a compatible version in ios 11.2.5? Thank you
We need proper exploits for that version first. Once they arrive, developers will get going.
Okay thank you
I don’t have a pc for the first method… TY
You can use the Jailed version from Panda Helper VIP.
I do not have a computer or PC, you can send me an ipa modify so that it works well, thanks to the others that installed eh I am not allowed to open a greeting
Hi, I do not have a computer or PC. You could send me a modified IPA file, as you have said before, since no Filza opens it and the device reboots. Thank you very much …
Can you send me a fixed ipa to my mail plz? I don’t have a computer and it would be very helpful
Plz leave the file as I don’t have an computer
I will be doing that asap.
I can sometimes get into FilzaEscaped when I delete and reinstall. Is there a way to change the framework on the device with Filza inside the app itself once open? Or use the ZipApp free possibly?
Thanks for all your hard work man
No, that’s not possible. I will post a new free Filza alternative soon.
