New version of AltDaemon released as package moves to Chariz repository

Jailbreakers of the modern day should be vividly familiar with AltDaemon, the useful utility for jailbroken iPhones and iPads that works in unison with AltStore to install, refresh, and update sideloaded apps without a computer.

AltDaemon today received an update to version 1.0.1 and moved from the Dynastic Repo repository to the Chariz repository. The change comes after the Dynastic Repo repository announced in September that it would shut its doors beginning in 2022.

The latest changes were announced Thursday afternoon via the official AltStore Twitter account, however the change log for AltDaemon v1.0.1 doesn’t cite anything new besides the initial release on the Chariz repository.

Having said that, we don’t expect any major changes to AltDaemon in this release.

One thing worth noting, however, is that existing AltDaemon users are advised to uninstall AltDaemon v1.0 before trying to install AltDaemon v1.0.1. Doing so should offer a simple migration.

Just as before today’s update, AltDaemon is only intended for jailbroken devices running iOS 12.2 or later. We don’t expect this to change anytime soon.

With the Dynastic Repo repository closing its doors, AltDaemon isn’t the first package to migrate to another repository, and we don’t expect that it will be the last. However, given the package’s importance to jailbreaking, it was worth mentioning.
