Cydia is quite a popular app these days. Cydia is basically a package manager app, usually for mobile phones that too, for iOS devices. This app allows the user for finding as well as installing the software which is not at all permitted by the Apple on the jailbroken iOS devices, like iPhones, iPads as well as iPod touch devices. But due to some reasons, the app is not in working these days. Hence, here is an amazing alternative for the same. It is the Sileo App.
Sileo is an Alternative for Cydia, for iOS 11 and iOS 12. The most recent sileo version now supports the iOS 13 as well. Sileo app was developed by Cool Star, the one who is the developer of Electra Jailbreak. In comparison with cydia, Sileo is quite expeditious, prompt, as well as light in weight. Continue reading until the very end to gain more information regarding the Sileo app. In its beginning days, Sileo basically initiated as a third-party package manager signified to be a complete replacement for the cydia app but not just this, the Sileo team is looking further to scale up.
Somehow, only jailbroken users can operate Sileo for installing packages, while on the other hand, non-jailbroken users can use the Sileo app for accessing all the other features.

Sileo As Repo Browser
You can even use Sileo as a repo browser as well as receive all the notifications for the package updates on a non-jailbroken iPhone. Nevertheless, for using it even as a repo browser, you are required for saving a list of the repo URLs in the Notes app after that you have to use the batch-add feature for adding them each and every time you will open the Sileo app.
On the other hand, you can even let the Sileo app run itself in the background. After that, you will not be required for re-adding the sources each of the time you will be relaunching the app.
Sileo is evidently not going to be as substantial on a non-jailbroken device as if compared with a jailbroken one. In spite of this, it can always be accessed like a repo browser. And honestly, this is why, a lot many users show interest in it.
Features of Sileo App:
Sileo version 0.7b2 introduced a few new features and in addition to this, has fixed few bugs as well. This update comes with a complete support for the 3D Touch gestures via the Home screen as well as in the app, allowing you to access shortcuts with the ability of having a peek-and-pop in the app itself.
This fixed a problem which may lead to the crashing of the Sileo app. In addition to this, Respring button is also working better now. Electra made Sileo one of the default package managers. Thus, it depends on you, whether you choose Sileo or Cydia.
The Reason Behind Its Introduction
Cydia was launched 15 years back and Saurik is basically the key star. However, if noticed, from some time, Saurik is totally silent and the latest jailbreak developers do not have enough time for waiting till Saurik update Cydia to its latest version.
Therefore, due to the same, they created their own version of Cydianamely,Sileo. If compared, Sileo is quite a lot faster than Cydia and all the credits for the same, goes to Electra Jailbreak Team plus more as they created such an awesome bundle.
It is quite a good package manager and while we ran tests on the new jailbreak store, we got to know a lot more, such as:
- Each Cydia repo is completely well-matched with the 3rd party app store – no need for any tweaking
- Tweaks can be added easily by the developers as well asthe apps to this jailbreak store.
- Any tweak that does not support iOS 11 or higher is straight away removed, making it assured that only you get those that work.
- Faster as compared to Cydia
- Cydia purchases can be made now as well
However, it is a drawback as well that Sileo will is well matched for the iOS 11 onwards but not really for those versions which are below iOS 11. For the versions below iOS 11, Cydia can be used without any question. Looking forward, Sileo will not be matched for 32-bit devices.
But somehow, Sileo can work with the previous Cydia repositories as well as packages and this is an important implementation detail for those jailbreaking.
How to Install Sileo on iPhone/iPad With Cydia Impactor:
