Unable to Jailbreak iOS 11.3.1? Here is the Fix

0 1

As we all know ios 11.3.1 is now jailbreakable using Electra but there were many users reporting that they are not able to jailbreak and stuck in the loop. So I decided to share the below guide to make the jailbreak process easier for you and most probably your device will be jailbroken with this guide.

Requirements

  1. Any iOS device running iOS 11.2 – 11.3.1

  2. Cydia Impactor – Simply extract the contents of this zip file into a folder on your desktop – Download Cydia Impactor

  3. Team Electra’s Jailbreak – Most users will download the Non Dev Account version – https://coolstar.org/electra/

  4. (OPTIONAL BUT RECOMMENDED BY THE JB CREATORS) tvOS11 – I’m linking a YT tutorial for this one. Video is only 2 minutes long and the process isn’t much longer than 2 minutes – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oZVvQq_qUvo&t=4s

Installation Tutorial (Getting Electra loaded onto your iOS device using Cydia Impactor)

  1. First, it’s highly recommended to take the 10-15 minutes required to backup your device on iTunes. No one on the internet is responsible if you lose your data or anything along those lines. So do yourself a favor and make a backup.

  2. Install the tvOS11 profile onto your iPhone. Follow the link provided, watch the YouTube video. You just need to go to the filedropper link in the YT video on Safari on your iPhone, download it, and then you need to install the profile to your phone and reboot your device.

  3. Now, ensure that you’re plugged into your computer and launch Cydia Impactor. Your device will show up in the drop-down text box. Don’t click start.

  4. Now, drag the jailbreak file into Cydia Impactor. You will see that it’s installing it onto your device.

  5. Cydia Impactor will ask you for your Apple ID email & password. Enter them.

  6. If you get an error, don’t panic. There’s a 99% chance you have 2-factor authentication enabled. There’s a work around. Simply go to http://appleid.apple.com and login to your Apple ID. In the Security section, generate an app-specific password. Copy this onto your clipboard, re-drag Electra’s JB onto Cydia Impactor and re-enter your Apple account info but use the app-specific password instead of your regular iOS password.

  7. If no error, you should now see Electra on your home screen. It’ll be a new icon.

  8. If you try to open it, your iPhone won’t let you as you haven’t trusted the profile yet. To do this, go to Settings > General > Profile > *your email address* will appear as a profile > tap it > trust it. You need to have WiFi or a connection during this process to trust it.

  9. Now you can open Electra. However, DO NOT CLICK JAILBREAK YET.

The Jailbreak Process Requirements

  1. Turn of Siri. (Settings > Siri & Search)

  2. Turn on Airplane Mode

  3. Turn off and keep Wifi off

  4. Disable Find my iPhone (Settings > Click your Profile > iCloud > Find My iPhone > turn it off)

  5. Remove passcode & if applies, faceid, from your device. (Settings > Face ID & Passcode > Turn off Passcode)

  6. Delete iOS 11.4 update file on your iPhone’s Storage. (Settings > General > iPhone Storage > Find iOS 11.4 > Delete)

The Jailbreak Process (The hard part)

NOTE: This process can take a long time, as you can see from my experience. I hope you’ve taken all of my steps because one small thing can be the difference. Due to all the issues, this jailbreak has a good chance that it will receive an update over the next few days from Electra team making the jailbreak tool more reliable. There’s also a good chance that there’s nothing they can do about it and you have to go through the process. This is the part that a lot of people are stuck on so I’ve compiled a list of everything that has worked for me on my two devices and hundreds of others on Twitter, Reddit, YouTube and whatnot. The ends justify the means in this case.

——————————————————

  1. Double check to ensure you’ve done everything in the JB process requirements listed above. Take it serious because for me, step 5 was something that took me 4 hours to figure out. As soon as I figured it out, boom, I was jailbroken.

  2. Go to Electra and click Jailbreak.

    1. Possibilities and what you should do after clicking jailbreak

      1. Please Wait (1/3) & then reboots – This is extremely common right now. Simply, wait for your device to come back up, ensure Airplane mode is on & WiFi is still off and then go back into Electra and click Jailbreak again. I’ve done this more than 150 times just today, so I wish you the best. PRO TIP: After 3-5 tries of it rebooting every time, it’s best that you force restart your device. Google how to do that as it’s different for different devices.

      2. Please Wait (2/3) & then reboots – This is quite common right now. You need to do the same as the one above. Continue to let the device boot up, and try again.

      3. Please Wait (2/3) & then Electra app turns black but you can still go to the homescreen – This is also quite common. You just need to keep trying again and again.

      4. *Please Wait (2/3) & stuck* – Make sure you’ve waited at least 5 minutes to ensure it’s stuck. Then, check your home screen and see if Cydia is there. If Cydia is there, you can reboot and move to the next step. If Cydia is not, reboot and retry.

      5. Installing Cydia & reboots – Success! Move onto the next step.

      6. Error: amfid patch – Same as above. Continue to reboot and retry.

      7. Error: rootfs remount – Ensure that you have deleted the iOS 11.4 updates and any other updates on your iPhone storage (step 6 of JB Process Requirements), ensure that you have the tvOS profile (Step 2 of the Installation Tutorial), then reboot and retry. If this happens more than 10 times, you should erase all content and settings and try again.

  3. Upon the reboot, you will notice Cydia on your home screen but it will crash as soon as you open it. That’s a good sign.

  4. Now, reopen Electra and you will see that it says Enable Jailbreak. Click that..

    1. Possibilities and what you should do after clicking jailbreak

      1. *Please Wait (1/3) & then reboots – This is extremely common right now. Simply, wait for your device to come back up, ensure Airplane mode is on & WiFi is still off and then go back into Electra and click Jailbreak again. I’ve done this more than 80 times just today, so I wish you the best. PRO TIP: After 3-5 tries of it rebooting every time, it’s best that you force restart your device. Google how to do that as it’s different for different devices.

      2. Please Wait (2/3) & then reboots – This is quite common right now. You need to do the same as the one above. Continue to let the device boot up, and try again.

      3. Process goes through and you see a loading icon – Success! Upon respring, your device will now be jailbroken and you will have access to Cydia.

  5. Once you open Cydia, you will get an error since you are not connected to a network. Simply turn on WiFi or turn off Airplane mode. Then, click reload on the top right hand side of your Cydia app.

If you’re discovering this after you’ve already installed Electra and have had no success

——————————————————————

NOTE: This advice is only for people who could not successfully get Cydia on their device in the first place. I had to deal with this so I can only really give advice for this.

Go to your profiles and delete the Electra profile.

Reboot

Go through all of this guide now and carefully follow the steps.

(I’d venture to guess that there’s somethings on this guide that you may not have tried on your first go. For me, I needed to do this on my iPhone X for it to work aswell)

After Jailbreak – Compatible Tweaks

——————————————————-

  • Install tweakCompatible or go to their website. You can see an updated and crowd-sourced pool of working, partially working and broken tweaks.

  • There’s also a reddit thread with a list of compatible tweaks that’s being updated – https://www.reddit.com/r/jailbreak/comments/8woopk/discussion_post_your_working_1131_tweaks_here/

  • You can also check out YouTube videos as within the next few days, tweak videos will be spreading like wildfire. I know that iCrackUriDevice & iTwe4kz both have videos out right now that showcase compatible tweaks.

P.S. I’ve been up for way too many hours so please excuse my mistakes and if I’ve left things out. I love the Jailbreak community and after seeing all of the people that are stuck, I wanted to put something together that might be able to help. Please message me or leave a comment if there’s something I need to fix. I will take a look at this thread in my free time and make the appropriate changes.
