If you have been trying to liberate your iPhone or iPad using the recently released Electra 1131, then you may be one of the unlucky ones who has been experiencing a recurring error message. Some errors can be particularly taxing or difficult to overcome. However, if you are being shown “Error: amfid patch” by Electra, then rest assured that a resolution is on hand.

The latest Electra release is definitely a wonderful jailbreak solution for the community. It comes at a time when excitement levels are at an all-time high and certainly manages to bring joy.

However, it also brings with it an absolute plethora of error messages, all of which are quite difficult to understand and don’t really give any detailed information on why the problem has occurred or what the device owner needs to do to resolve the problem. For some, it’s a case of trial and error to see what works. For others, you simply need to read the information below and find out how to get rid of that troubling amfid patch error.

You may not want to hear this but the real trick to getting past this issue and becoming successfully jailbroken is perseverance and going through reboots of the device. You also need to make sure that you are using the non-developer version of the Electra 1131 app, which makes use of the VFS exploit.

This can be downloaded via the official Electra website but ensuring that you choose the correct download and that you are not using the developer-facing multipath exploit version. If you keep getting the error, then keep rebooting and retrying, and you should finally get where you need to be.

Once you do get past the amfid patch error, then you should be home-free and should find yourself with a rebooted device containing Cydia and everything else that you need in order to enjoy a liberated iOS experience.

It is worth also remembering that not every one of your favorites tweaks or packages will offer compatibility with the iOS 11.3.1 jailbreak so you will need to be extremely careful and vigilant with the packages that you are downloading and installing. Enjoy the jailbreak and let us know if this resolution worked for you.
