The rollercoaster ride that is the Electra iOS 11 jailbreak has taken another turn, and this time, it is, thankfully, one for the better.
You will remember that we told you very recently that the developer of the jailbreak, known as CoolStar, had produced a little bit of drama by announcing that he was quitting the iOS jailbreaking scene completely after multiple builds of his Electra Release Candidate with Cydia bundled were leaked online.
CoolStar had made builds available to developers in order to allow them to get all their tweaks ready ahead of the public release, but with these having found their way into the public domain, CoolStar announced he was done and went so far as to delete his Twitter account completely.
While all that was grim news indeed, it now looks like we could not only see the Electra jailbreak with Cydia released in final form officially after all, but that CoolStar will also be involved in that release. Little information is available other than tweets from developer nullpixel, who is apparently working on it alongside CoolStar. In a tweet earlier today, nullriver said that Electra would indeed be finished, with or without Coolstar’s involvement in the project moving forward.
However, in a follow-up tweet, the same developer confirmed that CoolStar will indeed have a hand in making Electra ready for public consumption.
It’s not clear why the Electra RC1 versions were leaked originally, and while his Twitter account remains deleted at the time of writing, we can only hope CoolStar does return to the fold eventually – both in order to complete is work on Elextra and to take the plaudits he deserves for making it available at all.
