Why you got the error?
If you're not on iOS 11.4 or later, according to Coolstar, the OTA update data of iOS 11.4 is responsible for this error message.
Although the team gave no further details, the OTA firmware file apparently tricks the jailbreak tool into thinking that the device’s firmware version is iOS 11.4.
Here are a few methods that you can try on your device to remove this message.
Method 1 (Recommend if you are not on iOS 11.4 and iOS 11.4.1)
Step 1 Open the Settings app and navigate to General > iPhone Storage.
Step 2 Scroll down and delete iOS 11.4 update.
Step 3 Restart your device with airplane mode enabled.
Step 4 Run the Electra jailbreak app again.
If the above fix doesn’t work for you, try installing the multipath or the mptcp version of Electra jailbreak.
This jailbreak tool requires a paid developer account but you can easily bypass this restriction using a signing service.
Simply restart your Apple device and give it a go again. The rootfs remount is a bit iffy and can take multiple tries to finally patch your device’s filesystem.
If you are still unable to fix this error, the advice is to erase all contents and settings on the device and then try the Electra jailbreak process again. That should hopefully result in a successful jailbreak.
