One of the most leading and popular members of the jailbreak community, CoolStar has now come up with a new jailbreaking package called Electra download. This jailbreak comes as a toolkit for tweak and theme developers in target iOS 11.1.2 to 11 devices. And it seems given to the developer's community in prioritizing testing iOS 11 compatibility packages. So as to the word of CoolStar itself, the release here of Electra Jailbreak download simply targets the developers who are interested taking part in updating compatible tweak packages for the 11th update.

In fact, it still in wanting of DPKG and APT, which are usually essential for making the jailbreak complete.

This is a semi-untethered jailbreak which runs through Cydia impactor
It is better to call Electra download a "toolkit for tweak developers" rather than another jailbreak. Since it lacks functional Cydia and Substrate and some more from a usual jailbreak, it does not come in the folder of full jailbreak from which we hope for an immediate benefit for the jailbreaker's community. So it is dedicated strictly to the developers and creators of themes/ tweaks to make use in the way of more testing on the 11th iOS update.
Step 01: Download Electra ipa latest version and Cydia impactor from above download links
Step 02: Connect your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch device to Mac, Linux or Windows PC using a certified USB lightning cable

Keep In Your Mind
Just as all the semi-untethered jailbreak so far, the IPA needs sideloading through the Cydia impactor by connecting to Windows, Mac or Linux. And once you continued to "jailbreak", the device will be given the pre-installed set of tools as Anemone, Preference Loader, libsubstitute, SSH, SFTP, SCP, and GNU as the utilities for many of the developers and tweak creators to get in their objectives.
If you have been sticking to iOS 11.1.2 - 11, this comes adding cheers. So stay tuned to know how Electra Jailbreak download going to come up in the times ahead with the contribution to tweaks and apps.
