Electra jailbreak has been released to the delight of the jailbreak community but you can’t download it in the normal way. More about that later; first, Electra jailbreak is the first utility made available in at least 12 months. Brought to us by Electra Team and Coolstar ( twitter ), the jailbreak is compatible with a wide range of devices. It opens the door back up to a whole heap of tweaks and apps that we can use for customizing our devices, something we have been missing for a while.
This new jailbreak is not quite the jailbreak utility that we got used to in the past; it requires a different method of installation and it is a semi-untethered jailbreak. This means that, whenever your iPhone or iPad is restarted for any reason, the jailbreak will require reactivation. The jailbreak also fully supports Cydia Substrate and offers all the features jailbreaks of the past have offered. Read on to find out how to download Electra on your device.
How to Download :
As we said earlier, downloading this jailbreak is not done in the same way. To get it onto your device you need to use TweakBox an external app installer that provides us with easy access to a whole heap of extra content, including this jailbreak.

If you run into any problems trying to install the jailbreak, do let us know about them, using the comments box below, and we will do what we can to help you solve them. If you find that you need to, you can easily delete the jailbreak from your device.
TweakBox is easy to install and, having been thoroughly tested, very safe to use. SSL encryption ensures that you and your data are safe and secure and it also offers the fastest download speeds anywhere, using little in the way of device resources. It will not interfere with anything else you have running on your iOS device and Android users can use it all too.
Electra jailbreak may not be like the jailbreaks we remember but it is still being welcomed with open arms and, who knows, it could be the utility that opens the flood doors to more. This is great news for the jailbreak community and we can only hope that it will continue.
