How to fully uninstall Electra toolkit from your iPhone

Electra was intended for tweak developers only but this didn’t stop some enthusiastic users from taking it for a test drive. Here’s an easy step-by-step tutorial for completely removing and uninstalling it from your device.

Why does Electra have bugs and glitches?

Electra toolkit is not a full jailbreak, it is just an iOS development toolkit.

According to its developer, it was meant to be used only by tweak and theme developers for testing purposes.

Moreover, this tool is still in beta development phase. As you know, beta builds are prone to errors and contain a few bugs and glitches here and there.

Thankfully, Coolstar implemented a proper uninstall bash script. This script completely cleans and removes every trace of this application including Anemone and associated themes.

It also de-injects all exploits and patches present on your device.

If you are one of those users who installed this tool, follow the tutorial given below.

How to perform a clean uninstall on iOS 11

 

Step 1 Install the iTerminal app from the official App Store. You don’t need to purchase the premium version, the free version will suffice.

Step 2 Establish an SSH connection using the following details –

  • Nickname – You can input anything here
  • Host Name – Your Wifi IP Address
  • Port – 2222
  • User Name – root
  • Password – alpine

Step 3 Tap Connect to enter the terminal.

Step 4 Type the following command and execute it by pressing enter. What this does is, it runs the inbuilt unjailbreak.sh bash script. Ensure there’s a space after “bash”, otherwise the command will not work properly.

bash /bootstrap/unjailbreak.sh

Step 5 It will now display a confirmation message. Press enter again to continue with the uninstall process.

Step 6 Wait for it to reboot and remove everything associated with the toolkit such as Anemone and other files. Once the removal process is over, go back to your home screen and ensure the app is gone. This should hopefully fix all glitches and bugs you were experiencing.

If your device is still having some minor errors or glitches, just leave a comment below.
