Jailbreak iOS 11.2 – iOS 11.3.1 with Electra
iOS users interested in jailbreaking their devices will likely appreciate knowing that a new jailbreak is available for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch models that are running iOS 11.3.1, iOS 11.3, iOS 11.2, and iOS 11.2.x builds.
The new jailbreak, called “Electra”, has several requirements to be able to perform the successful modification of iOS system software.
For the less familiar, jailbreaking uses an exploit to gain root access to an iOS device thereby allowing users to modify the core software on the iPhone or iPad. Often this is for the purpose of installing appearance themes and visual tweaks, or for installing software to the device for various reasons. Jailbreaking is generally considered advanced and is best reserved for advanced users who like to tinker with their devices and who understand the full risks associated with the process, including potential data loss and security threats. Apple is strongly opposed to jailbreaking, and there are many reasons not to jailbreak an iPhone or iPad. We do not recommend it either, except for the truly advanced users who have prior jailbreaking experience.
If you’re interested in the Electra jailbreak for iOS 11.3.1, iOS 11.3, iOS 11.2, iOS 11.2.1, iOS 11.2.2, iOS 11.2.5, or iOS 11.2.6, then you will need the following prerequisites:
- Any iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch running iOS 11.2 through iOS 11.3.1
- The latest version of iTunes
- An app called Cydia Impactor for Mac or PC
- A USB cable
- A computer with the latest version of iTunes (Mac or Windows)
- An Apple developer ID
- The Electra1131 IPA file

Using and completing the Electra Jailbreak is a multistep process that is far beyond the scope of most iPhone and iPad users, which should emphasize that it’s really only appropriate for more advanced individuals with prior jailbreaking knowledge.
Always complete a full backup of an iPhone or iPad before installing any system software, or before attempting to modify any system software.
The availability of the Electra Jailbreak is mentioned mostly for informational purposes and we certainly do not recommend jailbreaking any iOS device. Apple may choose to deny warranty service to jailbroken devices, among the various other reasons not to jailbreak an iPhone or iPad.
