Table of Contents
SemiRestore11/Rollectra is an on-device unjailbreak utility for Electra jailbreak. It is developed by Electra Team member Pwn20wnd.
Here’s how this tool works –
- It utilizes the APFS snapshot of the system partition to restore the system partition to its stock state.
- Afterward, it destroys all data that is not present in the system partition of the filesystem without an iTunes restore.
Remember, Rollectra reverts all changes made to your device’s filesystem along with user data. Therefore, the developers recommend that you perform a full backup of your device via iTunes before using this tool.
Why is Rollectra useful?
Since Jay Freeman no longer updates Cydia Eraser, Rollectra is the perfect alternative for iOS 11 users.
It is immensely useful if a tweak messes up your device or you ruin everything by modifying a filesystem setting.
As soon your device goes back to its stock state, you can then start afresh and jailbreak it. Or you could just keep your device in its original state if you feel jailbreaking is not for you.
Which iOS versions are compatible?
As of now, only the devices that are running Electra1131 are compatible. Here’s the full list of supported firmware versions.
- 11.4 Beta 1

The developer will add support for older versions in the future versions of Rollectra. If you try to install it on these versions, Cydia will throw an error.
