Jailbreak iOS 12

Sileo REPLACES Cydia on Electra Jailbreak iOS 11.3.1 – 11.4

iOS 11.3.1 - 11.4 Sileo Jailbreak Package Installer Updates

Sileo Jailbreak iOS 11.4 & 11.3.1 Cydia Replacement for Electra – All of the jailbreak iOS 11.3.1 and iOS 11.4 beta developments over the last few weeks have certainly been exciting! However a rather interesting subject has arisen lately that we never thought would gain so much attention. The death of Cydia! That’s right, Cydia is going to be replaced – and soon. The Electra Jailbreak Team has been busy lately working on a full fledged Cydia replacement: Sileo.

Sileo is said to be built from the ground up with one thing in mind: the future. Sileo will be a fast, responsive, and modern package installer for jailbroken devices. The first version of Sileo will roll out shortly for the iOS 11.3.1 through 11.4 jailbreak.

Why replace Cydia in the 11.4 – 11.3.1 Jailbreak?

Jailbreak iOS 11.4

The current version of Cydia bundled with the brand new electra jailbreak for 11.4 and 11.3.1 is over 2 years old! That’s right, if you’ve jailbroken this month with Electra, you’re using a build of Cydia meant for 2016 devices.

The Electra team has had to do a lot of work creating patches to make Cydia even semi usable. What’s more, the UI isn’t even updated to properly take advantage of the iPhone X’s larger display.

What will Sileo look like on Electra Jailbreak 11.3.1?

Following the announcement that the Electra Team would phase out Cydia in favor of their own solution, the group opened a new twitter (@getsileo). Said twitter has already posted a few interesting updates, including the logo for the new project: embedded above.

It looks like the group is even taking it as far as to let users customize the icon of Sileo themselves!

Sileo Jailbreak Installer’s Performance

Beyond looking nice, as mentioned above, Sileo will be a performance power-house for modern devices. Coolstar has confirmed that Sileo will be capable of multicore performance threading, will feature a new payments system, and can now download/install packages correctly!

Sileo is Seriously FAST!


If you’ve jailbroken previously, you’ll know that Cydia can take forever to reload sources. That’s going to be a thing of the past with Sileo! The above video is a demo that was released today of Sileo reloading data and searching for packages.

In addition to developing Sileo, Coolstar and his associates are also working on something called Project Repo-Unclutter. Said project is basically one repository that features only “current” Cydia packages and tweaks for the newer iOS 11 firmwares. As Coolstar pointed out with a Drake meme, that leads to a drastic reduction in load speeds.

Jailbreaking beyond Cydia

So is Sileo the future of jailbreaking? Coolstar and the Electra Team have definitely convinced me: what do you think? Let us know in the comment section and stay tuned for more updates concerning Sileo and the iOS 11.3.1 – 11.4 jailbreak.
