  1. Hey , thank you Cydia team for this awesome tutorial . I was able to download and install cydia on iOS 11.4 beta using Electra jailbreak following your step by step guide

  2. Hi there ,
    Is there any jailbreak currently if so
    For which one really and what tool can I use and where ? Appreciate it very much in advance.

  3. Hi.. Can you help me? How can i update apps with jailbreak? I just received a message from App Store that says: you cant update with this id Apple. U know its because my jailbreak. I installed through linkstore .

    I hope u can help me , Sorry my english but this is the best i can speak

    • The apps downloaded from Cydia belong to Cydia , and App Store belongs to Apple. You can update apps even with jailbreak running in the background , no problem.

    • Hi , thank you for your comment. Downgrade is not possible since Apple has closed iOS 11.4 installlation. You just have a wait a few weeks for iOS 12 release. We have some news that the Electra Jailbreak – may be supported there . They dont want to release it to avoid patching.

    • oh , unfortunately iOS 11.4 is last supported by Electra jailbreak at the time to writing this comment. But Today iOS 12 will be released. We are expecting an Jailbreak for that.

  4. Hey, I know you said Cydia is not available as a standalone app and that it requires jailbreak, but is it possible to access an particular app on a non-jailbroken phone in order to use it a few times before iOS 12 gets launched?
    And in case one does a Jailbreak, would the iPhone not automatically upgrade to 12, or like when connected to iTunes, could iTunes remove the jailbreak(incl. the cydia-loaded apps)?

    • Hi ,

      If you are looking to access a jailbreak app , that is not possible. Check if the app is available on any of the appstore in our Cydia alternative page .
      Jailbroken or not , your device will not auto-upgrade to iOS 12 without your permission .

      Hope that helps.

  5. Team Cydia, I have searched for so many websites to download Episode-Choose your story and Rules of Survival. How much time do I have to wait…..I don’t want to wait for a long time cuz I want to play right away.????????????????????????????????????????????????????????‍♀️ Btw,who’s from the ???????? ?

    • thats not necessary. your ios version is jailbreakable. just click on the ios version and install using the jailbreak tool available.

    • what is your last OS installed on your device. There is a jailbreak available for all OS except iOS 11.4.1 and above at the time of writing this comment. check the link for your ios , and instal using tutorial.

  6. Hi I have downloaded the Electra jailbreak but rack time I try to make it work it says 1/3 then it tells me that there was a error
    P.s. I’ve got iOS 11.4.1
    Thank you

  10. Dear team,

    I send email earlier but with no reply?!
    Looking forward for your reply.

    • hi , full version is only available till ios 12.1.2 at the moment. it will be released in a couple of weeks. follow us to stay updated.

  11. Got an iPad gen 3 and it has iOS 9 and I need 10 to run some apps. I tried to install Cydia for iOS 9 but it said it couldn’t install. Do I have to change a setting first?

    • iOS 7.1.2 has a working jailbreak. If you need to check which ios version you are upgrading and see if there is an available jailbreak for that. All that information is available on this page itself.

  12. Boa dia gostava de ter o vosso programa pago para o meu iPhone… como posso fazer para pagar e utilizar o vosso programa ???

    • Obrigado por seus comentários gentis. Sim, foi revogado algum tempo atrás. os caras estão nele e vão consertá-lo o mais rápido possível.

    • are you trying to download iOS 9.3.5 ipsw? it doesnt work that way. needs a computer for the iOS update. for iOS 9.3.5 jailbreak, you will still need a computer for the IPA file. After going through your comment we could check the Phoenix jailbreak for iOS 9.3.5 is also available via the AppValley app without needing a computer. So you might be at luck.

    • sorry, but there is no ETA. however I want to assure you that iOS 12.2 was jailbroken by Keen Team. though not released, it brings hope that it can be jailbroken, but other jailbreakers.

  13. Please team cydia give me some information i want to download cydia i try everything but no download plz give me a special help sir plz

  14. hello I got the Ipad Mini1(IOS 9.3.5) and installed the latest Cydia with Phoenix but cant find any sources..errors :failed to fetch http://repo666,some index failed to download,could not open file/var/lib/dpkf,package list not parsed…what must I do??thanks Rob

  15. I’m trying to jailbreak and load cydia on an iphone 5 ios 10.3.3 today. Nothing i find will work, are there any suggestions? I’m thinking 10.3.3 tools may be well out of date, any help would be great.
    thank you,David

  16. Are there any jailbreaking tools for iOS 9.3.2 (iPhone 5s) that are not Chinese, which is being the case with PanGu? I have a computer available, if it makes the case any easier.


  17. Dear cydia team i am on ios 12.1.4 and i cannot download cydia
    Please do something about this
    I would be so happy if you could do something

  18. Hello good day

    I have been using Phoenix jailbreak for a while on my old but good yet iPhone 4s. I use this jailbreak because I bought the Tetherme app on Cydia store, then I can use the phone like a modem to give Internet to my other devices. Now, since two weeks ago I couldn’t reinstall the Phoenix app, ( it is extremely difficult to keep the phone always on ) and now I have trouble to get the Internet on my devices. I am looking for the Phoenix app but unfortunately I can’t find it anywhere, the only place where it remains is here in The problem is that it installs on the phone but when touched to initiate it crashes always. So I’m writing to you if you can fix it or give me any help or idea of what can I do to get back the Phoenix jailbreak or better yet the Tetherme app that I need.
    Thank you
    ( I am willing to pay if I can have Tetherme app or the Phoenix to last “forever” on the phone)

    • Thank you for taking the time to write about the issue. A lot of users have reported the same to us, about the Phoenix Jailbreak not working. Right now there are two sources to get the app, Appvalley App and via Phoenix IPA File installation. Hope that helps

  19. you are the team that changes the world for the better.
    Iam waiting for updates on iOS 12.3.1.
    Thanks cydia team

  20. Jailbreak was successful but Cydia didn’t install? Is there anyway to install Cydia independent of the Chimera Jailbreak?


  21. Hey Guys,

    I am able to install apps from cydia as well as sileo but installed applications are not getting reflected on home screen of my iPhone.
    After installing any apps, i also do respring but no luck.

    Please suggest..

    • Hi Suresh, Sileo is fairly new and we are not aware of its small glitches. You may want to connect with its developer on Twitter and sort out your issues.

  22. Cydia does not appear on my home screen after I jailbreak my ipad 2 with Phoenix iOS 9.3.5 tell me what to do to make cydia appears on my home screen

  23. Facebook app is not opening ( loading ) when I click on it after jailbreaking my iPhone 7 Plus iOS 12.4 with chimera. I have deleted Facebook app multiple time and downloaded also rebooted device many times but no luck. How do I fix this issue please help.

    And Thanks for 12.4 jailbreak 😀😀

  24. It says that it is not trusted and I’m trying to get this app and it won’t let me make it trusted I have a school iPad that has a mdm profile on it which is a lot of restrictions

    • for that you would have to download iOS 12.4 ipsw file and install it using iTunes. Download method 3 given in the iOS 12 Download page. However, note that Apple stopped signing iOS 12.4 today, so you will not be able to install iOS 12.4 by anymeabs now. You will have to wait for iOS 12.4.1 Jailbreak, or possibly iOS 13 Jailbreak which is under works now.

  25. Hi guys, I want to tell you how to fix the problem of downloading Cydia on iOS 9.3.5. Click the download link and go to Settings and click on the device time change to 2017…..and Phoenix wil be downloaded. ^_^ I have cydia right now.

  26. Salut, s’il vous plaît j’aimerais savoir si il y a des applications pour tablette ”androïde” ?

  27. Hi,

    I only wanted to install an older version of Firefox onto my antique iPhone5. Somewhere I read this could be done using H3lix/Jailbreak.

    Is that correct?

    Meanwhile, I installed H3lix.
    When I start the H3lix app and I choose Jailbreak it says : uicache failed!

    How do I resolve this?

    Thanks in advance for your reply and greetings from Belgium!!

    • hi Bryce, iOS 13 Jailbreak is currently in works. Its been jailbroken but testing is on, right now with developers only. Stay tuned while we update you about the same on this blog. May as well like us on Facebook for the Update when released.

  28. Hi.
    I have 2017 iMac running MacOS Catalina, and a few superseded ios devices I dont want to throw away. Sadly, I cannot run the required jail-breaker program (p0sixspwn1.08) on as my iMac will not run 32 bit programs any more. I have tried using virtual machines for both Mac OSX Mountain Lion and Windows 10 and followed all the directions for each but p0sixspwn keeps exiting whilst doing “magic” or just hangs on “waiting to reboot …”
    I have used four or five copies of p0sixspwn from various places to no avail.
    I don’t have access to any other dedicated machines. My VM manager is Parallels Desktop, which is very reliable.
    Any ideas?

  29. Hey, I’ve got an iPhone 4s running iOS 9.3.6. I’m seeing on here that Cydia won’t work on 9.3.6. Can anyone recommend another safe option for jailbreaking? My goal is really just to install flux for dimming blue light.

  30. So, i tried to get chimera to jailbreak my iphone 5s on ios 12.4.2… and after i donwloaded the chimera ipa, my norton 360 detected a trojan in the chimera file, and deleted the ipa.

  31. Hi, can I use Cydia to get my iPhone to send a fresh new pin code to another number every time my handset gets turned off? Thanks for your help 😊👍

  33. I’m having issues with removing Sileo from an iPhone X, running 12.4. I originally did the chimera jailbreak, accidentally turned off my phone, and haven’t been able to re-jailbreak after trying numerous times since. I’ve kind of given up. The Sileo app is still on my phone, but of course, the app can’t be opened. Even after restoring my phone, erasing all contents and settings, Sileo is still there. Any recommendations? Thanks.

  34. Hey my name is Alex can I ask you guys a few questions? It’s about how I can’t find a repo for airdrop for my iPad 3 and I need it badly
