As Apple does with every jailbreak that is released, they have patched the newest Electra jailbreak for iOS 11.2 to 11.3.1. Because of this, if you update your iOS device, you will no longer be able to jailbreak. Normally if you ever ran into any problems that required you to restore your device to factory settings, you’d be forced to update and lose your jailbreak. But with Pwn20wnd’s tool ‘SemiRestore11 / Rollectra’, you can unjailbreak and restore to factory settings without updating, and without a computer!
SemiRestore11 works with the latest Electra1131 jailbreak, with support for the previous Electra jailbreak coming soon. It works on the iPhone, iPod touch or iPad and doesn’t even require you to use a computer. All you need to do is download the app from Cydia and run it.
Requirements & Notes:
- This works on iOS 11.2 – 11.3.1 & 11.4 beta 1-3 (support for iOS 11.0 – 11.1.2 coming soon).
