Jailbreak up in iOS 11.1.2 is possible with Electra

The jailbreak , something that sounds very outdated and forgotten, because before was the order of the day as it added interesting features to the iPhone that did not come integrated into iOS. But the passage of time and the improvement of the operating system caused the jailbreak to plummet, although today we have been aware of a new tool to jailbreak even in iOS 11.1.2, Electra.

Is the jailbreak still alive?

CoolStar , iOS developer has announced that it will soon release a new jailbreak for all devices between iOS 11 and iOS 11.1.2. The name he has been given is called Electra and takes advantage of the vulnerability that security expert Ian Beer published .
A few weeks ago another tool was announced to be able to perform the jailbreak on iOS 11.1.2 called LiberiOS, which took advantage of the same vulnerability as Electra, but there are differences between both tools, but also similarities.
The main refusal of Electra is that it is not compatible with Cydia , that is, when performing the jailbreak you will not be able to have Cydia on your terminal, something that will be reversed if you are considering to jailbreak. Something to highlight Electra is the exclusion of DPKG and APT, tools used by cybercriminals.
With this application you can customize your iPhone with settings that for now we do not see in the operating system in a native way, but we will surely see them in later updates. Here is the big question that always opens the debate in all articles, with the evolution that has had iOS is worth running Electra on our device?
If you are interested in Electra it will be best if you wait until Cydia is updated for iOS 11, so that the user experience is much better. But, in my opinion, it is not necessary to do this operation and also that you are exposing yourself to a totally unnecessary risk, because the improvements it gives you do not seem to compensate.
