Table of Contents
Electra1141 jailbreak is an updated version of Electra jailbreak toolkit compatible with iOS 11.4-11.4.1. It is developed by Coolstar.
The latest iteration of this iOS 11.4.1 jailbreak tool replaces older exploits (multipath/empty_list) with exploits by Tihmstar and Brandon Azad.
- voucher_swap exploit for A9 models and above (iPhone 6s, 6s plus, SE, iPad (2017) and later).
- treadm1ll exploit for the A7 and A8 device lineup (iPhone 5s/6/6 plus, iPod touch 6th-generation and iPad mini 4)
Unlike unc0ver jailbreak, exploit selection is done manually based on your model and firmware version. If your device is not stable on either exploit currently, you must manually select the most reliable one.
Although the latest version adds support for iOS 11.4-11.4.1, you can still use it on iOS 11.0-11.3.1 just like Electra1131 jailbreak. Check out the tutorial if you don’t know how to get the jailbreak app on your device.
