Many A12(X) device owners who’ve held off on iOS 12.0-12.1.2 are hopping with joy right about now after the release of the Electra Team’s Chimera jailbreak, but one small detail that can be easily overlooked amid this significant news is that the Sileo Team has officially released Sileo 1.0 to the general public.
As you might come to expect from the new version number, Sileo 1.0 is no longer considered a beta, but rather an official release build. The Sileo Team eagerly announced the new version Monday night via Twitter, shortly after the Chimera jailbreak was released:
Sileo 1.0 debuts on the Chimera jailbreak and is also available to existing Electra jailbreak users on iOS 11. According to the official GetSileo web page, Sileo 1.0 brings the following changes over the previous version:
– The brand-new New tab, featuring new packages and news from the Sileo team
– Other bug fixes and improvements
Sileo’s New tab should feel familiar if you’ve ever used Cydia before, because it’s very similar to Cydia’s Changes tab. This tab features new jailbreak tweak releases as they’re pushed to your installed repositories, and moreover, it displays news relating to the Sileo app itself:
We expect that an updated Sileo Demo will soon be made available for non-jailbroken devices, but this remains to be seen. It’s also worth noting that iOS developer LaughingQuoll and others continue to work on a version of Sileo that will be compatible with other jailbreaks. No ETA has been provided for either, however.
Are you using the new Sileo package manager, or are you still using the tried and true Cydia app for your jailbreak experience? Discuss in the comments section below.
