What causes bootloops in Electra jailbreak?
As you already know, Electra jailbreak is the most stable jailbreak since Pangu for iOS 9. Users experience no random resprings or reboots, thanks to Xerub’s KPPless technique.
However, bootloops and respring loops are still prevalent on this tool.
Here are a few known causes of bootloops on Electra jailbreak.
- Installing an incompatible or buggy Cydia tweak.
- Uninstalling a tweak like SCOthman for Snapchat or LockGlyphX along with its dependencies.
- Accidentally removing core files of the iOS operating system through Filza.
Even if you don’t remember doing any of these things, you can still get hit out of the blue.
Fixing bootloop on iOS 11-11.1.2 firmware
This method will work for all devices provided you set your nonce beforehand.
If you have SHSH Blobs saved up for iOS 11.1.2 firmware, you can follow this tutorial and re-restore or upgrade to iOS 11.1.2 again from the same or older versions.
If internet connection is still active on your device, you can try connecting to Find My iPhone. Once you detect your device, you must wipe it remotely.
This has one major downside – it will remove all the user data such as photos from your device.
However, your device will stay on the same firmware version, which will allow you to jailbreak it again.
Method 3 (recommended)
Although this isn’t a surefire fix, you can still try third-party tools to solve this problem.
- Put your device in recovery mode.
- Use Reiboot or Recboot software to kick it out of recovery mode.
Alternatively, you can try putting your device in DFU mode and then perform a hard reset.
Allow your device’s battery to discharge completely. Many users have reported that they were able to get their devices working again after a reboot.
If none of these methods work for you, you must upgrade your device to the latest firmware version via iTunes. The latest firmware of iOS at the of writing this article is version 11.2.6/11.2.5.

iphone 7 is successfully jailbroken with cydia but when i accidentally installed incompatible tweak, i lost my jail break and cydia icon stll there but not working, how can i solve it? thanks
Use Delectra script.
Before I start the jailbreak, it says a apfs snapshot is saved. How do i use that snapshot?
It will be used by SemiRestore 11 (full version), you can’t use it yourself.
how to future restore?
Follow this guide.
Why do I go back to the b11_3 from RC1.02, then install the plugin, then the plugin can not be used properly
Which plugin are you talking about?
i got bootlooped by installing a faulty cydia tweak what should i do now?
Try an iCloud reset.
Tried that but my phone lost internet connection, still have the white apple logo screen will I have to restore and upgrade?
Did you try Reiboot? If yes, the only option left is to restore via iTunes.
Why does my comment keep getting deleted?

I have noticed that when I run the jailbreak for the first time, everything runs smoothly. But then I open cydia and it asks me to complete the installation. After I do that, I went and installed preference loader, tweak injector, and substrate compatibility layer. It then tells me to respring my device, after I respring, I am in safe mode and when I turn my phone off and back on to run electra again, I am just in a jailbreak loop. Any help? I am on IOS 11.1.1.
Something is wrong with your installation. Try cleaning Cydia up.
It wasn’t a bug but annoying without a in-devoce terminal app.
Thx for this tutorial.
Confirmed on my X
I HAddeleted bootpd
future restore can restore my iphone if is was in recovery mode and nonce set previously
Yes, you can do that.
how to fix error in Cydia?

2- sub-process/usr/libexec/cydia/cydo returned an error code (255)

I am uploading a fix for that.
Reboot your device, open electra, turn off the tweak option and hit the jailbreak button, when done, open cydia, install your repo and update if necessary. After that open electra and rejailbreak with tweaks option on and everything will be fine!
U cannot reinstall the apt.saurik.com. Read the comment and know your facts before giving false info
Actually, you can do that but Coolstar blocked it for a reason.
THank you my device is fixed
I HAddeleted bootpd
