Most people associate the Procursus bootstrap and Sileo package manager with the iOS 12-based Chimera jailbreak or the iOS & iPadOS 13-based Odyssey jailbreak, but that’s liable to change soon future as Odyssey Team member Hayden Seay teased almost a month ago that Procursus and Sileo would be coming to the Mac.
Wednesday evening, we got a first-hand glimpse of just how quickly the aforementioned project appears to be coming along.
Most people who hear the word Sileo immediately think of the default package manager used by the Chimera and Odyssey jailbreaks for iPhone and iPad. But what if it could also run on a Mac?
The idea of having a package manager such as Sileo available on the Mac isn’t new, and Odyssey Team co-developer Hayden Seay (A.K.A. Diatrus) says it will be coming to fruition very soon.
The slew of revitalizing jailbreak news recently is nothing short of exciting for anyone that’s heavily invested in the process of pwning of iPhones and iPads. Fortunately, it seems like there’s still a lot of exciting news and teasers to be witnessed by devoted members of the community.
Odyssey Team member Hayden Seay (also known by his online handle Diatrus) took to Twitter early Saturday morning to share a particularly captivating picture of what seems to be an iPhone getting its operating system restored via software running on an iPad:
In case you missed it, the Sileo Team has officially released Diatrus’ Cydia fork that permits checkra1n jailbreak users to have both the Cydia and Sileo package managers running on the same device. This was a historic moment for the Sileo Team because it’s the first time that an official solution of this magnitude has ever been released for a jailbreak not created by the Electra Team.
If you’re using the checkra1n jailbreak and you want to have both the Cydia and Sileo package managers present on your device, then you’ve come to the right place. In this tutorial, we’ll show you how.
If you’re using the checkra1n jailbreak and you’ve been on the fence about using the Sileo Team’s brand-new installer to get Sileo on your iPhone or iPad because of its conflicts with the pre-installed Cydia package manager, then we’ve got good news for you!
With the help of prominent Sileo porter Diatrus, the Sileo Team has officially launched a new Cydia fork on its GetSileo repository that will allow checkra1n devices to run both Cydia and Sileo side-by-side on the same device using the same version of APT.
It was only a couple of days ago that the Sileo Team released a brand-new Sileo package manager installer for the checkra1n jailbreak. The updated installer, created with the help of prominent Sileo porter Diatrus, leaves most of checkra1n’s bootstrap components intact. On the other hand, the installer still upgrades APT to a version that is incompatible with the pre-installed Cydia package manager, thus uninstalling it in the process.
If you were hoping that you could finally use Sileo on your checkra1n device without having to uninstall Cydia, then the Sileo Team’s updated installer probably left you disappointed. Fortunately, Diatrus seems to be working on a solution that could answer the community’s cries to have both package managers present on the same checkra1n or unc0ver device.
The Sileo Team took to Twitter late Wednesday evening to share that it had released an updated version of the Sileo package manager dubbed v1.7.1 with various improvements, but that wasn’t all. The Tweet also noted that the new Sileo build was available for both Chimera and checkra1n jailbreak users.
The Sileo Team attempted a checkra1n port for its Sileo package manager just before the new year, and despite a flaky initial release that quickly crashed and burned, it now seems that the Sileo Team is making a second attempt – this time with some help from Diatrus, a name that might sound familiar if you’ve ever used an unofficial Sileo port before.
