iOS 11 finally has its first jailbreak with Cydia support. Electra 1.0.1 is compatible with all of Apple’s latest devices — including iPhone X and the 10.5-inch iPad Pro — and all versions of iOS 11 up to iOS 11.1.2.
One hacker just unleashed a new jailbreaking tool for iOS 11 — the first with Cydia support. Electra 1.0.1 is compatible with all of Apple’s latest devices, including iPhone X, and all versions of iOS 11 up to iOS 11.1.2.
This week’s CultCast is a hot one! We discuss: The useful iPhone X gestures you haven’t heard about; why you need to check out Apple’s new YouTube channel; why folks are mad as heck about Apple Watch 3’s data prices.

Two of Cydia’s largest repositories have been shutdown as jailbreaking dies out. ModMy and ZodTTD are no longer available, leaving BigBoss as the only major source still available to those who want apps and tweaks you can’t find in the App Store.
Apple TV owners still running tvOS 10 or tvOS 10.1 will soon get a jailbreak that allows them to run unauthorized third-party software. Hackers have confirmed that work on the tool is finished and that it will be available to download soon.
The iPhone 7 has been on sale for less than a week and hackers have already been able to jailbreak it. Photos posted on Twitter show Cydia, the home of jailbreak apps and tweaks, installed on a device running iOS 10.0.1.
This is the third story in a three-part series on jailbreaking iOS.
When Melissa Archer learned she would die at the hands of a serial killer, she made one last request: “I asked if I could have a death scene because I am a nerd.”
