Cydia Installer introduction, guide and latest news for jailbreak newbies

Recommended Posts


Cydia is the most popular alternative to the App Store, and like all third-party app stores for iOS, it is only available for jailbroken devices. Many of the apps available on Cydia are those who could not pass through the approval process of the official App Store, usually because they ran afoul of the restrictions Apple puts upon apps in the official store. There are lot of cool apps on Cydia that you can't find on the App Store.  One of the more popular apps on Cydia simply switches Bluetooth on or off so you can get to it quickly without searching through settings. 


The iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch are tied to the App Store by certificates that are used to authenticate apps.  In essence, each app has a seal of approval from Apple and apps require this approval to actually run on the device.   "Jailbreaking" a device essentially removes this requirement, allowing the device to run any app.  This also allows the device to run third-party app stores like Cydia. 

What is Cydia Installer?
Think of Apple's official App Store so, this is similar to the app store that means you can download apps, games from the Cydia installer. But there are many advanced options have been included in the Cydia free store, more than the official store. After installing Cydia on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch devices you are able to download unlimited apps, themes, tweaks, and more beneficial stuff for free or for a minimum of low cost. Cydia also allows you to customize your iDevice in a different way and that's why the members of the jailbreak community are searching for the installer Cydia.
Cydia installer was created by the American software engineer, and developer Jay Freeman, also known as Saurik. Since after the release of this tool for iDevices, it has begun to make a revolution in Apple iOS devices. Just think you're stuck on your iPhone which means you're unable to perform any special action because of the restriction of Apple. Download Cydia opens the gate for a specific path to customize any iPhone, iPad or iPod touch device in an incredible way.
Untethered, Tethered and Semi-tethered Jailbreak
When discussing Cydia and the related stuff, there is a special topic that we can just not talk about. That is jailbreaking. Jailbreaking permits root access to iOS, allowing the downloading and installation of additional applications, extension, and themes that are unavailable through the official Apple App Store. It generally makes iOS more like Android.
Apple, of course, wants all its users running safe apps and stable software - jailbreakers choose to take a little more risk for a little more control over their devices. So Apple keeps updating and make high-security restrictions over jailbreak to be a hard process.  So also jailbreak community find new methods to upgrade jailbreak into the latest Apple version.
There are 3 jailbreak methods,
  • Untethered Jailbreak
  • Tethered Jailbreak
  • SemiTethered Jailbreak
Untethered Jailbreak is the most desirable jailbreak of all time. An untethered jailbreak allows you to jailbreak your device, run Cydia apps and tweaks, and reboot your device at will with no consequences.
 Tethered Jailbreak happens when each time you reboot your iDevice (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch), the boot process will fail (you’ll get stuck on the Apple logo). To get around this you will need to plug your iDevice back into your computer and re-run the jailbreaking tool you originally used to jailbreak your iDevice.
SemiTethered Jailbreak is till have a tethered jailbreak but if you lose power or your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad crashes it will reboot into a semi-functioning state where you can use applications such as Phone/SMS. To put your iDevice back into a functioning and Jailbroken state you will need to plug your iDevice back into your computer and re-run the jailbreaking tool you originally used to jailbreak your iDevice.
Cydia Installer iOS 12 -  Latest Status 
As mentioned when Apple makes high technology advancement with its firmware jailbreak has become a hard process. Previously it is said that without proper jailbreak method we cannot install Cydia. But today there are online Cydia installer methods. So you can get Cydia experience without jailbreaking your device or without Apple warranty issues. The well-known Cydia Elite App is one of that Cydia installer app. It is the latest trend. Now you shouldn't worry about jailbreaking or the what firmware you are using. Because Cydia Elite Cydia installer supports up to iOS 12 firmware to download Cydia and it will be support for the latest firmware as well. Taking semi-jailbreak actions, you can download third-party apps, tweaks and customize your device never before.
Electra Jailbreak
Electra is the latest jailbreak tool available at this moment. Electra is compatible with iOS 11.3.1 and the creator Coolstar is now working on iOS 11.4 to be a success.
At this time, there are two versions of Electra jailbreak. The more reliable multipath tcp exploit is only available to users registered as Apple developers. It can only be installed if signed with a valid Apple ID registered in the $99/year Apple Developers program. (No throwaway Apple ID’s this time). As an added bonus, this jailbreak will last longer than the 7-day period available to non-developers. However, as all recent jailbreaks, it remains a semi-tethered jailbreak, meaning you’ll have to re-run the jailbreak tool on the device (without connecting to the computer) after each reboot.
