Activator iOS 8.3

Activator, an absolute staple tweak for jailbreakers, has been updated for iOS 8.3. The Ryan Petrich developed jailbreak tweak is not only great on its own, but it’s the backbone to a lot of the existing jailbreak tweaks, and opens up the floodgates to the rest of the vast Cydia library.

To install Activator 1.9.3 beta 5, you’ll need to add Ryan’s beta repo to your list of Cydia sources. Check inside for all of the details.

Add the following source to Cydia to enable Ryan’s beta repo:

http://rpetri.ch/repo

Once you do, simply search for Activator, and install the beta. Once the beta is installed, you can use it by itself, or take advantage of any number of the many jailbreak tweaks that use Activator.

  • Tylor Jackson

    I waiting need update for flex 2 beta, springtomize 3 ios 8, hideme, and adblock 2

    • Lucus Bendzsa

      I legitimately purchased all my tweaks. Most tweaks work but are blocked. I temporarily pirated them. I have a legal copy, but they work so why not use them? There is no morals being broken if they are already purchased.

      • Tylor Jackson

        Oh I see. Sometimes my legitimate purchased all my tweaks work but most repo sources everything tweaks free πŸ™‚

      • Yes. Correct. You already own them.

    • Ah Kei

  • Ken

    I just installed this. And now settings won’t open. It just crashes. I uninstalled rocketstrap and the other one but nothing.

  • Ken

    I’ve also installed tage but no setting section came up. ?

    • Damian

      Yeah because preference loader is not updated. Does activator work for you at all?

      • Ken

        no activator doesn’t show anything blank white screen

  • Ken

    Oh oh and Spotlight doesn’t show anything

  • Macy Palacio

    installed, working fine so far. insert *thank you gif

    • Damian

      Do you open activator via settings or via activator icon?

      • Macy Palacio

        activator icon

  • Nguyα»…n Quα»‘c HαΊ£i

    can not download. Http/1.1 Forbidden.
    Help me!

  • Damian

    Could someone explain to me how to use those tweaks since preference loader does not work yet??? I am a bit confused because lots of people here seem to have blast with tweaks that you normally setup through settings. Just don’t tell me they setting tweaks via Ifile

    • hurtfulmedicine

      everyone is using the substrate fix that hasn’t been officially released yet.

      • czarczarczar

        Do u know where I can find the link to that fix ? Idownloadblog took it down

      • Ken

        even with the soubrette fix i couldn’t get it to work with either tweaks

      • Damian

        Same

      • Damian

        I am using this fix and it does pretty much nothing for me. I can install tweaks but they don’t work mostly because I can’t access their preferences via settings

      • Ken

        ditto bro ditto

      • tunutsaigon

        After installing this fix, you need to reboot your device in order to make it work my friend! πŸ™‚

    • Ken

      im having the same issue as you. nothing show up on the settings

    • tunutsaigon

      Look at my setting pane! πŸ˜‰

      • Damian

        Wow are you gonna keep us hanging? Or would you bother to explain a bit more ?

      • tunutsaigon

        All you guys need to do is to install iFile on your device first. Quit all apps at the AppSwitcher then follow the below link by your device’s Safari to get the patched deb:

        apt.taig[dot]com/debs/taiguntether83x.deb

        Download it and choose ‘Open in iFile’ to install it and make sure it ends with code of 0. Reboot your device and all done! You can now installing your favorite tweaks at ease! πŸ˜‰

      • czarczarczar

        This works even if I used the 2.0 Taig jailbreak and not the 2.1 ?

      • tunutsaigon

        Yes! I also use v2.0.0 from day one πŸ™‚

      • Damian

        I have done this multiple times and it does not work. I feel some people are just lucky in this situation

      • tunutsaigon

        Try this v2.1.20 and see how it goes? πŸ˜‰

      • Damian

        I will try this once I restore my device. Guess what I got blank icons issue once I removed Cydia substrate. I guess that was a big mistake

      • Damian

        Thanks man it worked
        The new jailbreak fixed all the issues

  • Rondog

    GREAT, I was checking every two hours waiting for the update, I’ve gotten so used to it it was driving me crazy pressing either the home button or sleep button, good job Ryan and as always great info Jeff.

  • Tylor Jackson

    Are you ios 8.1.2 or ios 8.3? I’m running on my ipad mini 3, jailbroken ios 8.3, and I didn’t purchase adblocker 2. I used repo source adblocker 2 is free

    • Jeremy

      I stated in my previous comment that I’m on iOS 8.3 on my iPhone 6 Plus and AdBlocker 2 is working just fine on my phone. Of course I have the official version paid for which is why I was able to download it

  • Damian

    Jeff how do we get those tweaks appear in settings pane

  • Jim B

    TaiG Jailbreak V2.1.2 now released! The new version is compatible with Cydia Substrate and more stable.

  • Jim B

    that is from official site but it looks like their servers are way toooo busy

  • Thomas Hopkins

    For me, it boots me into Safe mode whenever it is installed. Anyone else,having this problem?

    • Turbocomppro

      ALWAYS do a fresh restore before jailbreak. Then simply restore from backup after jailbreak. Solves many many problems.

  • SouthWestSon

    Can’t see activator beta after adding repo – has it been removed?

    • SouthWestSon

      I’ll answer my own question – it’s not a beta any more – part of bigboss repo now – thanks Ryan πŸ™‚

  • Simeon Traikov

    tnx πŸ™‚
