Electra 1131 Jailbreak for iOS 11.2-11.3.1 is now live. You can download it on any iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch using our tutorial here. However, as is often the case with iOS jailbreak solutions, this latest exploit is not without its fair share of performance issues. Users are reporting several problems with Electra on their iOS device. The error we are going to talk about in this post doesn’t directly relate to the jailbreak tool itself, rather it’s linked to a problem in having to open and access Cydia which keeps crashing after a few seconds.
Thankfully many of the issues associated with the current Electra jailbreak are not as hard to fix as was the case in some of the previous iOS jailbreaks. There are no complicated steps and troubleshoot required to get rid of the bottlenecks with the 2018 iOS jailbreak.
Similarly, the issue with Cydia crashing on launch is easy to solve and doesn’t involve technical complexities.
Fix Cydia Crashing Issue
Here are the steps that you need to follow in order to get Cydia up and running once again and enjoy its amazing lineup of jailbreak Tweaks.
1 – Download the developer account version of Electra. Don’t use the free account. The paid developer account uses the multipath tcp exploit and gives a stable jailbreak experience. You can get the account from the Electra website under the Download (dev account) option over at coolstar.org/electra.
2 – Now enable the Airplane mode on your device that you want to jailbreak.
3 – Also disable both Siri and Find My iPhone on the device.
4 – Make sure to clear your device’s RAM before starting.
Once you have fulfilled all of the above mentioned requirements, proceed to jailbreak your device using the multipath version of the jailbreak which will give you the immediate access to Cydia. This method, however, has its limitation in a way that it requires users to have access to a paid Apple developer account ID.
If the problem remains, it’s definitely well worth the effort to repeat the process two or three times. In case even that fails to fix the issue, your last resort is to wait for the developers to issue a fix in the next Electra jailbreak update.
