Good news for all jailbreak fans, Electra Jailbreak has just been released. Before you get too excited though, it cant be installed in the same way as we used to install jailbreaks. However, this is the first time we have seen any kind of jailbreak utility in more than a year and it comes to us from popular developer team, Coolstar ( twitter). It works on loads of different iOS devices, providing us with our tweaks and apps once more.
Back to installing it. Electra Jailbreak is a bit different to previous jailbreak tools, mainly because it is a semi-untethered utility. What this means is, because we need to install it in a different way, the jailbreak will need to be reactivated whenever your device is restarted, regardless of the reason why. Electra does have support for Cydia substrate though so all your favorite tweaks and modifications will still work.
How to Download:
Electra app is not downloaded the way we used to download jailbreak utilities. The only way to install it on your iPhone or iPad is to install an iOS app installer called Panda Helper first. Panda app is one of our Cydia alternatives, a source of modified apps and games that is, quite ironically, the best way to install Cydia these days. Here’s how to do it:
- Install Panda Helper on your iOS device following the linked guide.
- Open Panda Store app and search for Electra
- When you see the search results, choose the one that has your model and iOS version and tap it, and wait for the jailbreak to be installed
- When the installation has finished, find the Cydia icon on your homepage, tap it and start using Electra

Electra Jailbreak isn’t quite the same as the jailbreaks we used before. It does offer plenty of tweaks and modifications though and it is a very welcome jailbreak utility, the first of many to come with any luck.
