Installer 5 Revealed: A Cydia alternative alternative that could potentially reboot the iOS jailbreaking scene!


I'm a girl that's liked technology from day 1. Mostly interested in the PSVita/PSP scene but I've always modded my stuff when it's possible, that is :)Contact me via DM at @KawaiiAuroraA on Twitter if you have any questions/concerns about my articles or if you have any article requests.

    sounds great,although i always felt installing from PC using Itools was the best option for games. never cared much for apps.

    I’m going to buy my way into a jail just so I can try to get out.

    Before peeps get excited remember it’s just a package manager and there have been several introduced before and after Cydia. I’m not saying this won’t be successful but a package manager alone does not make a community alone for jailbreak users. iOS and Android have evolved to a point where most users are happy with stock features alone. If nothing else, the jailbreak community has helped evolved idevices to much better devices. We are a dying breed and let’s hope apple continues to make our experience better

    Man we had an alternative once, remember rockbox? That was (for it’s time) the equivalent of what installer 5 is going to be, but then Cydia bought them out,

    I’m glad their is another option but I wonder if Cydia will just buy them out again

    will support every jailbroken iDevice running iOS 8-11.1.2 .
    Nothing new then =(.

    I’m still on iOS 7.1.2 – guess it’s useless for me, when I jailbreak one of these days. Unlikely I’m gonna leave 7.1.2, due to software bloat causing OS lag.

    I m with my iOS 9.3.3 Jb, but I see with the lastest iOS 11 the Jb is not quite stable, no Cydia Substrate. So I hope these guys can do something about It
