BREAKING Cydia Updates! And How to Use Cydia Update Helper

How to Get Cydia back after Update. Sileo & Cydia Together iOS 11.3.1 & 11.4 Jailbreak – Yesterday hacker Coolstar pushed an important Cydia update for the iOS 11.3.1 & 11.4 jailbreak. Unfortunately for those who installed the update before it was fixed, it broke Cydia. In today’s article, we’ll discuss said update and also teach you how to fix Cydia if it’s broken. If Cydia is gone, this is the tutorial you’ve been looking for.

Cydia and Sileo + Breaking Updates

Jailbreak Sileo

First, let’s talk about what this update is. Coolstar basically split Cydia into two parts, which will be useful when Sileo is released. Sileo will be a third-party package installer for the Electra Jailbreak 11.3.1 that will replace Cydia. More information on Sileo can be found here (click or tap). Prior to yesterday’s update to Cydia, users would likely have had to pick between either Sileo or Cydia.

Coolstar has now confirmed that once the aforementioned update is installed successfully, you can use both! For as long as Cydia works, that is. Coolstar seems like he’s done releasing patches for Cydia and will be solely focused on Sileo. Any potential updates to Cydia in the future will need to be released by Saurik, the creator of Cydia, himself.

How to get Cydia back after updating

Fix Cydia Jailbreak iOS 11.3.1 11.4

The steps to re-obtain Cydia if you happened to install the older (broken) update are as follows. Note, you will need a computer (Windows or Mac) to proceed.

1) Obtain Cyberduck and PuTTY (if you’re on Windows) from the download section below.

2) Once downloaded, launch your SSH client and change the connection type to SFTP. Input your iOS device’s IP address for the server ID.

Note: Your device must be on the same Wi-Fi as your computer. To obtain your device’s local IP on iOS, open the Settings app > Wifi > i.

4) For the port, input “22”, for the username type “root”, and type “alpine” for the password. They’re both case sensitive.
