How to Fix Electra Jailbreak ‘Please Wait’ Error Message and Black Screen

Hello there! If you are new here, you might want to subscribe to the RSS feed for updates on this topic!

The new Electra jailbreak is here but if you’re trying to jailbreak your iPhone and getting the ‘please wait’ error message and black screen, try these.


Jailbreaking is still relevant until today since the iPhone was first released. There have been various types of tools made available by hackers, and the latest one is called the Electra. Since there are millions of iPhones and iPads out there, there’s a high risk of hiccups during the jailbreaking process.

Here’s a possible fix you can try if you encountered the ‘please wait’ error or even the black screen. First thing you need to do is to make sure that your iPhone or iPad is on Airplane Mode even before you start the process. Your iPhone’s memory needs to be cleared (there are apps or steps which can help to do this). Restarting the phone may help too. Also, deleting the iOS 11.4 update file helps increase the success.

The above suggestions have been reported to help people to proceed with the jailbreak. So there’s no harm in trying. If that fails too, a hacker called @angelXwind proposed to do the following based on his Tweet:

Another note for Electra 11.2-11.3.1: If your device suddenly displayed a black screen with a spinner on it after Electra’s UI reached Stage 2/3, the jailbreak has /succeeded/.

If you do not see Cydia, SSH into your device as mobile and run uicache, or hard reset your device.

For some reason on certain devices one would encounter one of these issues even though the jailbreak has been completed. You’ll need some additional research on how to SSH (accessing device using different tools) to your device and running the uicache as mentioned by @angelXwind.

The least ideal way is to do a full restore on the device before attempting to do any jailbreak. It’s not perfect but if jailbreaking your device is really something that you want to do, then it’s worth trying all the above.

We hope that your jailbreak is successful!
