In this post, I’ll let you know how you can switch between iOS 11 Electra jailbreak and Unc0ver jailbreak. If you guys are on iOS 11 – iOS 11.4b3 then there are two options when it comes to jailbreaking. Either the unc0ver jailbreak or Electra jailbreak. Cydia runs very well on unc0ver and it has recently been updated to support new Cydia substrate by Jay Freeman himself.
If you want to use better Cydia then definitely use unc0ver, if you want to use Selio then use Electra. As the Selio beta is available through Electra and might come later to unc0ver after a stable release. Using Electra you can run both Cydia and Selio in your device.
Let’s start the process to switch between Electra jailbreak and unc0ver jailbreak.
Remember, when you remove jailbreak it removes all the previous jailbreak files (including all the installed tweaks, so it’s better to use flame or some other way to back up your sources/repos and tweaks, you can use screenshots too). Because this step is necessary to switch between two jailbreaks.
Switching Between Unc0ver Jailbreak and Electra Jailbreak
- Step 1:
Suppose you are on stock iOS and not using any jailbreak right now. Download Install unc0ver using this link. if you want complete steps then follow this article unc0ver jailbreak as this one is about switching between two.
- Step 2:
If you are on unc0ver jailbreak, go to setting and enable Restore RootFS(rec0ver), go back and hit jailbreak, a popup will show up stating this may take a while, do not exit the app and don’t lock the device, click Ok. This will unjailbreak and remove all the previous jailbreak files from your device and take you to the stock iOS. None of your personal data will be touched during this process.
( If you face any errors or unc0ver jailbreak doesn’t work properly. It must be because of already downloaded iOS update (only downloaded update staying) in your device’s settings. This is a common problem with jailbreak utilities if you have pending downloaded iOS updates and are not installed. Just delete that downloaded file and try again this will work fine.)
But if you are already on stock iOS then open unc0ver and hit Jailbreak in the middle.
Both software need to run twice in the process, in 1st Cydia and normal jailbreaking processes are installed and in 2nd actual jailbreak is enabled. The device will be rebooted in between (a popup will show up indicating this) in the unc0ver jailbreak. After reboot, open unc0ver jailbreak and hit jailbreak button again. The process will resume and jailbreak is done using unc0ver, you can see the Cydia at the home screen. Open it and do all the pending upgrades.
Now it’s time to go to Electra jailbreak by removing unc0ver jailbreak from your device.
Electra Jailbreak From Unc0ver Jailbreak
- Step 1:
Shutdown your device and start it again. Open unc0ver and go to setting, enable Restore RootFS(rec0ver), go back and hit jailbreak button, a popup will show up stating this may take a while, do not exit the app and don’t lock the device, click Ok. The phone will be restarted.

This process will remove all the previous jailbreak files from your device and take back you to the stock iOS. None of your personal data will be touched during this process.
- Step 2:
Open up the Electra jailbreak utility and click the Jailbreak button in the middle. The process will start, same like unc0ver your device will be restarted, after that run the Electra and hit jailbreak button again, the jailbreak is done and you can see installed Cydia at your device’s home screen. Open it and perform the pending upgrades. Electra jailbreak takes a bit more time to jailbreak as compared to unc0ver jailbreak.
- Step 3:
