After releasing Electra RC1 to developers a few days ago, CoolStar has now pushed the new RC 1.3 version to the same set of developers to get their tweaks and apps ready for iOS 11 before public release.
The release of Electra comes at a time when one developer who has a copy of the original RC1 from CoolStar leaks it to the wild.
CoolStar and co. clearly recommends everyone to stay away from such leakage because the leak appears to be a modified version that "uses a half-booted attempt to recreate our bootstrap tar." In short, using it might send your iOS 11.1.2 device to a continuous bootloop, which forces you to update to iOS 11.2.5.
We will advise the same. Stay away from leaks from Electra RC1 circulating around as far as possible.
Back to the release of Electra RC 1.3, given how fast its progress is, it should not be too long now, before it's available to the public.
For those who do not know, Electra jailbreak is primarily based on the exploits discovered and published by Ian Beer, in addition to patches from some of the other prominent members of society such as Siguza, xerub and CoolStar themselves. It supports all devices, including the latest iPhone X, running anything between iOS 11.0 to iOS 11.1.2.
We will of course keep updating all the latest happenings from jailbreak world. Stay tuned.
