Electra Jailbreak Tookit

for iOS 11.0-11.1.2.

This jailbreak is by the community, and was developed open source.


See the open issues for smaller things to work on.

Currently implemented:

  • setuid(0) - no panic
  • KCALL - call kernel functions given an address and up to six arguments
  • mount / as rw
  • amfi bypass? well, run unsigned code (temporary until i figure out a master process which gives everyone everything with the right entitlements etc.)
  • amfid fixing up
  • jailbreakd that keeps tfp0 task port open and runs a local server listening for commands
  • Basic dylib injection into running process
  • Working setuid (after calling jailbreakd to fix it up)


  • Dpkg/APT port (and maybe Cydia?)
  • Structure filesystem more like a traditional jailbreak


  • Download the repo, and run the code on your device.
  • Make your patches
  • PR!
  • ???
  • Profit 🎉
