With Unc0ver jailbreak for iOS 12 – iOS 12.1.2 finally out, most people are jumping back to the jailbreaking scene. To help make the jailbreaking experience better for them, I have already compiled a list of the best jailbreak tweaks for iOS 12 – iOS 12.1.2. In this article, I have done a roundup of the best Cydia sources and repos that you can add to gain access to some interesting and useful jailbreak tweaks.
Patiently waiting for unc0ver to add iOS 12 – iOS 12.1.2 jailbreak support? The pwn20wnd team has been steadily working behind the scenes on that and they have even teased Cydia support for iOS 12.
After quite a few weeks of teasing, the @pwn20wnd team has gone ahead and released the first public jailbreak for iOS 12 – iOS 12.1.2 using Unc0ver. While there was rootlessJB before, it lacked Cydia and Substrate support which made it difficult to install tweaks. The latest unc0ver beta has full support for Cydia and Substrate which makes the whole jailbreaking process easier. If you have already jailbroken your iPhone or iPad and are looking for some useful Cydia tweaks, check below.
SSH-based iOS 12.1.2 – iOS 12 Jailbreak RootlessJB 3.1 Released With Ability to Install Cydia Tweaks
Earlier this week, we saw Jake James release rootlessJB, an SSH-based developer oriented iOS 12.1.2 – iOS 12 jailbreak. It was not particularly a useful jailbreak since it did not support tweaks or code injection of any kind. Thanks to rapid development from James though, rootlessJB has now been updated to support Cydia tweaks.
Now that an iOS 11.4 – iOS 11.4.1 jailbreak is out from both Electra and unc0ver team, many people who will jailbreak or have jailbroken their iPhone or iPad would be looking for some useful Cydia tweaks. Since iOS 11.4 – iOS 11.4.1 only adds some new features and enhancements and does not deviate from iOS 11.3 in any major way, most Cydia tweaks that worked on iOS 11 – iOS 11.3 are going to work just fine on iOS 11.4 as well.
More than five months after initially teasing it, the team behind Sileo — Electra — has released the first beta of the package manager which is aimed at replacing Cydia. Despite months of testing, this is the first beta release of Sileo and so it is bound to have some bugs and stability issues.
Marking the end of an era, Cydia — the App Store for jailbroken devices — has been shut down. Cydia’s creator Saurik made this announcement on Reddit after a bug was discovered in the platform that may have put user data at risk.
One of Electra team members has confirmed that the team is still working on Sileo, their Cydia replacement. The package installer is aimed at replacing Cydia for jailbroken iOS 11 devices, with the Electra team teasing it about five months ago.
As promised by the AppTapp team, the first developer beta of Installer 5 has been released. Billed as the Cydia alternative, Installer 5 is a fully featured package manager for jailbroken iOS devices running iOS 8 – iOS 11.
At the tail end of 2017, we covered the news about the AppTapp team working on a Cydia alternative called Installer 5. The alternative App Store for jailbreak apps and tweaks for iOS 10 and iOS 11 has been long under development. Today, the AppTapp team has announced that they will be releasing the first developer beta of Installer 5 tomorrow (i.e. May 22).
