Coolstar has released Electra 1.0.3 iOS 11 jailbreak to fix the intermittent freezing issue, which was affecting some users.
Here’s the complete changelog of Electra 1.0.3 iOS 11 Jailbreak:
- Revert change to XPC in xpcproxy in beta 11
- Fix intermittent freezing issues that would affect certain devices on beta 10 -> 1.0.2
Coolstar has pointed out that bad tweaks may still cause a problem, which is probably the reason some users are still reporting the freezing issue with Electra 1.0.3:
Note: Bad tweaks can still cause problems even on 1.0.3
Most notably, if a daemon is installed into /Library/LaunchDaemons and the binary is missing the “platform-application” entitlement. launchd on iOS 11 will constantly loop trying to load the daemon as it’s killed by Sandbox
He has said that the problem is not with Electra iOS 11 jailbreak “but a problem with said tweaks that are loading Launch Daemons.”
Also, Safe Mode only protects against backboardd/SpringBoard crashes If a tweak crashes a system daemon, it’ll get stuck in a crash loop, which definitely would cause freezing
You can download the latest version of Electra IPA from the official website. You will need to use Cydia Impactor to sideload the Electra IPA and then run the process to jailbreak your iOS device.

It will also install Cydia for iOS 11 during the jailbreak process.
In case you are new to the jailbreak world, then Electra iOS 11 Jailbreak is a semi-untethered jailbreak that makes use of Ian Beer’s async_awake exploit. A semi-untethered jailbreak is similar to an untethered jailbreak, it gives the ability to reboot your iOS device on its own. On each boot, the iOS device startup sequence is unmodified and it boots into its original, non-jailbroken state. However, instead of needing to use a tool from a computer to re-jailbreak the iOS device again, like a tethered or semi-tethered cases, the user can re-jailbreak their device with the help of an app running on the iOS device.
