Ever since the LiberiOS jailbreak, the first jailbreak for iOS 11, iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus was released, we have been eagerly waiting for Cydia, the app store for jailbreak tweaks and themes, to be released for iOS 11.
It looks like we won’t have to wait too long as iOS Developer, nullpixel, has just posted the first screenshot of Cydia for iOS 11 running on iPhone X. coolstar, the developer of the Electra Jailbreak, who has patched Cydia for iOS 11 had sent his iOS 11 Cydia bootstrap for testing.
So this should calm the nerves of people who have been asking coolstar to provide proof of Cydia working on iOS 11.
He hasn’t provided any ETA yet, so please be patient, and avoid nagging him for a release date. It is a matter of when rather than if, which is actually great news. It is unlikely that you will be able to install paid jailbreak tweaks as purchases won’t be enabled until the official version of Cydia for iOS 11 has not been released by saurik. It is not clear if it will also include Cydia Substrate for iOS 11 as it would be required for the tweaks to work.
Jay Freeman aka saurik had also promised to release Cydia for iOS 11, however, he has gone quiet for the last few days, so we are not sure if and when he will release Cydia.
Kudos to coolstar for patching Cydia to make it compatible with iOS 11. While it is possible to install jailbreak tweaks and themes manually, Cydia for iOS 11 will make it a lot easier, and enable jailbreakers to make the most of jailbreaking their iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
