Sileo is a modern alternative to Cydia – the stock jailbreak package manager. It is developed by Coolstar and Nullpixel, the leading members of the Electra development team.
Beginning with iOS 11, Sileo is all set to completely replace the aging installer by Saurik with a fast and lightweight installer. Here’s a quick rundown of its features and functions –
- It loads tweaks and packages at blazing-fast speeds.
- It also trims a lot of fat from the “Sources” section with the all-new “repo unclutterer” that refreshes sources almost instantly.
- A clean, flat user interface that has the same look and feels as that of the stock App Store app.
Before you install this new Cydia replacement on your device, here are a few things you should keep in mind –
- Some functionality and features are still missing or may not work as expected.
- Since this is a beta preview, some bugs might have crept in.
- Only payments through the Dynastic Development repository are supported for now.
WHICH FIRMWARE VERSIONS ARE COMPATIBLE?
- 11.4 Beta 1,2, and 3
DOES SILEO WORK WITH IOS 12/12.1 OR ABOVE?
Unfortunately, it doesn’t work with iOS 12, 12.0.1, 12.1, or higher versions. For those of you who don’t know, the jailbreak package manager requires root access to function.
Since iOS 12 and above versions do not have a public jailbreak available, Sileo can’t work on them. Several disreputable individuals are pushing bogus and virus-laden versions of both Sileo and Cydia on websites like YouTube.
If you wish to run Sileo on your iOS 12 device, your best bet is to bookmark this page and keep a tab on the compatibility section above.
- iPhone, iPad or iPod touch
- A compatible firmware version
- Electra jailbreak v1.1.0
