FIX: Error-topanga iOS 11 Electra Jailbreak Error
Just today we have got good news from coolstar about the latest release of Electra Jailbreak with fully working Cydia. The users have been waited for almost 2 months for the final release of Electra Jailbreak. Although after fully working Electra Jailbreak release, many users are facing a very common error named “Error-topanga”.
What exactly is Error-Topanga?
Since Coolstar has implemented a system called DRM that checks for the traces of the malicious to.panga jailbreak. Anyone can access its files since Electra toolkit is open source.
Below is the screenshot of how Error-topanga looks like:
“topangaInstalled()” checks whether certain files from to.panga are present in the device filesystem. If it returns “true” value then you will see the Error:topanga.. However, if none of these files found in your device, then you can successfully jailbreak your device.
Therefore, it all comes down to removing the aforementioned files if you want to bypass Coolstar’s DRM.
METHOD 1: REMOVE DROPBEAR FOLDER
Step 2 Navigate to /etc folder on your device’s filesystem.
Step 3 Delete the dropbear folder.
Remember, your device may not have the dropbear folder. If that’s the case, use the following method.
METHOD 2 – REMOVE MALICIOUS FILES
Step 1 Launch FilzaEscaped again.
Step 2 Remove the following files or folders from the appropriate locations on your device’s filesystem. These are the files Abraham’s developer-only tool installs.
- /Library/MobileSubsrate/ (remove entire folder)
- /etc/dropbear/ (remove entire folder)
That’s all there’s to it! You can now run Electra’s RC1 version on your device freely. If you still get the Error: topanga error, try the following fixes.
METHOD 3 – REMOVE THIRD-PARTY APPS
Even if you didn’t try any jailbreak tool before, you can still get this error.
Try removing all third-party apps like Ext3nder and other ++ social media applications until the jailbreak succeeds.
If you installed any version of Cydia Extender, remove the following files and folders.
- /Library/Switches/ (remove entire folder)
DON’T FOLLOW THIS TUTORIAL IF YOU DON’T KNOW WHAT ARE YOU DOING!!!
—not for n00b—
I got Error: Topanga before & I do this
use FilzaEscaped, I remove this files:
1 – Files from LiberiOS/Topanga/Electra Beta
/Applications/uicache (I think this from LiberiOS) /usr/lib/libcurses.dylib /usr/lib/libncurses.5.dylib /usr/lib/libncurses.dylib /Library/MobileSubsrate/ folder /etc/dropbear/ folder
*some of that are symlink files
2 – Modified Hosts File also I restored my hosts file to original (I use reddestdream’s hosts before to block ads)
3 – If you install Ext3nder remove:
/Applications/Extender.app /Library/Switches/ folder
4 – If you install ++ Tweaks remove:
/usr/lib/ua_tweak_resources/ folder /usr/lib/libuasharedanaltyics.dylib /usr/lib/libuasharedanaltyicsflurry.dylib /usr/lib/libuasharedtools.dylib /usr/lib/libuasharedtoolsapplovin.dylib /usr/lib/libuasharedtoolsappnext.dylib /usr/lib/libuasharedtoolscloudmobi.dylib /usr/lib/libuasharedtoolsgoogle.dylib /usr/lib/libuasharedtoolsinmobi.dylib /usr/lib/libuasharedtoolsmobvista.dylib
–first step is based from Tom Lube’s post:https://www.reddit.com/r/jailbreak/comments/7q6tz3/tutorialshit_me_i_did_a_topanga_remove_topanga/
