Saily package manager receives update to fix Safari linking & more

Jailbreakers who are using the Saily package manager on their pwned iPhones and iPads might be excited to learn that a new version was released this Friday morning with a small list of changes.

The latest version of the Saily package manager is now 2.1-REL-1645604648, and from what we can gather, this version provides users with the following changes and/or improvements:

– Reveal package content
– Install package payload without .deb path extension now supported
– Fix the broken URL scheme when opening from Safari

One of the most important changes in today’s update appears to be fixing Saily-based links opened from the Safari app. Now, they should launch the respective package in the Saily app as expected. Other changes in this update appear to be relatively minor ones.

If you’re an existing Saily user, then we recommend running the latest version of the app for the best user experience. New users will be prompted to install the latest version when downloading it for the first time.

For those unfamiliar with Saily, it’s essentially a modern APT-based package manager that operates similarly to competitors like Sileo and Zebra, however it only supports devices that are running iOS & iPadOS 13 and later. It has a unique user interface with Dark Mode support that some jailbreakers may find attractive.

Saily is fully open source on GitHub, and if you’re interested in giving it a try on your pwned handset, then you may download it for free from the BigBoss repository using your existing package manager app.
