Installing Electra

For support in English, ask for help on the r/Jailbreak Discord Server.

Electra is a semi-untethered jailbreak, meaning it requires a app to re-apply the exploit after a reboot.

The tool is compatible with jailbreaking devices on iOS versions from 11.0 to 11.4.1.

Due to how semi-untethered jailbreaks work, the app will need to be re-signed once every 7 days.

We will use Sideloadly to install the Electra application to your iOS device for use in the next step.

WARNING

If you are already jailbroken with unc0ver, make sure to properly remove it before proceeding.

Downloads

Electra is currently signed at jailbreaks.app for easy installation without a computer.

Installing the application

  1. Open Sideloadly
  2. Plug your iOS device into your computer
    • Make sure your computer is trusted and allowed to view the contents of your device
  3. Drag and drop the Electra .ipa file into Sideloadly
  4. Enter in your Apple ID
  5. Enter in your password
    • Sideloadly must make a request to it's servers in order to work with free developer accounts. If you are not OK with this, you may use an alternate Apple ID.

The app will now install to your iOS device.

Trusting the application

  1. Go to Settings -> General -> Device Management -> <Your Apple ID>
    • Depending on your usage, Device Management may be labeled Profiles and Device Management
  2. Tap Trust "<Your Apple ID>"

The Electra application can now be opened from home screen.

Running Electra

  1. Open the Electra application from your home screen
  2. Tap "Jailbreak"

WARNING

If your device crashes or restarts unexpectedly and the jailbreak isn't installed, simply try running the exploit again until it does work.

You should now be jailbroken with Sileo installed on your home screen. You can use Sileo to install tweaks, themes and more.
