● An APFS snapshot is created of / so you may revert it at a later date if needed
● It is recommended to futurerestore if you have blobs before running Electra to ensure the best possible installation
● Cydia is included
● OpenSSH is running on port 22
● Electra repo added by default
● Substitute, Tweak Loader and Substrate Compatibility Layer available from Electra repo
● Many packages need to be updated for both Electra and iOS 11 (make sure they’re updated before installing as they may not work yet)
● RocketBootstrap 1.0.6 or higher is required for use on iOS 11
● Many apps, launch daemons and installation binaries are broken as they require entitlements to be added
● Everything on saurik’s repo right now is broken on iOS 11
● If you’re on iOS 11 and see an update for “APT 0.7 Strict”, or any package for that matter, that’s from saurik’s repo (Cydia/Telesphoreo) DO NOT UPDATE IT
Notably, saurik has criticized the use of a jailbreak daemon and says he is working with a well known developer to release a jailbreak of iOS 11.0 – 11.1.2 with a working Cydia and Cydia Substrate. Unfortunately, we don’t have an ETA on when that will arrive.
If you want to try the Electra jailbreak, it can be downloaded from here. You can install on it on your device using Cydia Impactor and your Apple ID credentials. If you’re not a developer you will only be able to sign the app for seven days after which you’ll have to sign it with Cydia Impactor again.
We’ll be providing more information shortly.
May be this is speculation but there are people hinting that Saurik may release the latest Cydia substrate which will support iOS 11 jailbreak. As we know that Saurik has already confirmed that he is working on Cydia to make it compatible with iOS 11. In that case people who are able to jailbreak ios 11 shall be able to install Cydia as well.
I am quoting one Facebook update from a jailbreak group, which may help you to understand the subject, in reply someone corrected that Cydia was released on 28 Feb not January 2008.
Now this is only speculation but I believe Cydia and mobile substrate may go live tomorrow Jan 28th. Why Jan 28th you ask? Because it’s the 10th anniversary of Cydia! Cydia was released by Saurik (Jay Freeman) Jan 28 ‘08! I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised if it was tomorrow. Saurik saying he was working with a well known jailbreaker lends itself to the theory. Who might this mystery hacker be? My guess is the return (maybe just for this project) Comex!
What is you opinion? Do you think Cydia may be released on 28 January or may be on 28 February 2018.
Jonathan Levin has announced an update to the LiberiOS jailbreak which brings fixes for odd use cases.
Version 11.0.3 (with fixes for odd use cases I never run into.. most notably FAT self-signed. Should be diamond solid)
You can find instructions on how to jailbreak your device using LiberiOS here:
Notably, Cydia Substrate does not work with the LiberiOS jailbreak at this time. Saurik recently revealed that he is working with a well known developer to release a jailbreak of iOS 11.0 – 11.1.2 with a working Cydia and Cydia Substrate.
G0blin, a jailbreak for 64-bit devices prior to the iPhone 7 (A7 – A9) running iOS 10.3.x , has been released by Sticktron.
If you’re not a developer, we recommend that you must wait until the final version has been released.

We are hearing much about the Cydia alternative because Cydia is not supporting the latest iOS versions especially iOS 11 jailbreak. Installer 5 is one of those projects which has managed to make space in the jailbreak community. On one hand, some individuals believe it can step into the footsteps of Cydia due to the fact that Cydia hasn’t been put through an update for a long while.
However, there’s also the obvious issue that most of the important tweaks and packages need Substrate to be installed and working on the device, which is still yet to be updated with iOS 11 compatibility and it seems highly unlikely that the Installer 5 team will have an alternative to this.
Saurik has updated that he is working on Cydia 11 and its substrate to work with iOS 11 jailbreak. After which Installer team has also started giving update to keep the community awake. Here is latest from Installer team, which came from Dennis Bednarz, also confirms that Installer 5 is being developed in separate parts:
The UI and the actual black magic code in #installer5 are developed separately for now so developers can optimize their time and so designers can do the same. We will have a working UI “prototype“ in the coming days where people will be able to install a dummy app to test the UX
This release of a prototype is useful for developer as well to grasp the inputs and improvement opportunities. We shall keep you informed once we see the real breakthrough in the achievement of iOS 11 jailbreak with working Cydia or Installer 5 app store.
The announcement of Installer 5 update is not telling when the prototype version of the tool will actually be released but the suggestion of the “coming days” would lead us to believe that we should definitely expect a version during next week. As always, we will let you know as soon as it’s available. Stay tuned.
