First and foremost, it’s vital to know that this jailbreak works with iOS 11 all the way up to iOS 11.1.2. This means that if you have the latest firmware installed or anything above iOS 11.1.2, this jailbreak won’t work for you at all. You have to be in between iOS 11.0 and iOS 11.1.2 or on it.

Secondly, it’s recommended that you use this jailbreak on a device whose firmware was freshly restored using iTunes. Jailbreaks do not play nicely with over the air installations of a firmware. Also, since Apple is signing nothing from iOS 11.0 to iOS 11.1.2, therefore you can’t restore your device using iTunes at all. Don’t even try at this point otherwise you’ll lose everything.

Cydia is bundled and installed with Electra, but keep in mind that many features and functionality might be broken at this point due to the infancy of the jailbreak. If you do plan on jailbreaking your device today, just do not install tweaks or themes just yet. Wait for everything to be updated properly first. One bad tweak can kick your device into oblivion.

Please make sure that you have saved your device’s SHSH blobs so that they can be used later for re-restoring your device in case something goes wrong.

This jailbreak supports all the latest devices running iOS 11, this includes the new iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, the new iPad Pro devices and more. 32-bit devices are not supported at all, so please do not even try to use this tool on them. Besides, 32-bit hardware can’t even run iOS 11.

Last but not the least, this is a semi-untethered jailbreak. What does that mean? It means that you get the benefits of an untethered jailbreak, but if your device restarts or loses power, you have to re-jailbreak your device again using Electra and Cydia Impactor. Also, every time the jailbreak certificate expires, you will be required to go through the re-jailbreak process.

Generally, be very, very cautious at this stage. You do not want to do anything at all that might force you to restore your device using iTunes. Not only you’ll the jailbreak status, but also your files and settings. So yes, backup everything to iTunes or iCloud every time you get the chance.
