If you’re without a jailbreak and your firmware is too new for any of the recent developments in the jailbreak community recently (I’m looking at all of you who are on iOS or iPadOS 16.6-17.0 and using TrollStore 2), then you might want to pay attention to this.
Check out the latest news and tutorials about Sileo, a refined package manager app that can be installed on jailbroken iPhones and iPads to browse repositories and find jailbreak tweaks and themes.
Sileo was made to replace Cydia on modern iterations of iOS and iPadOS, and feels faster and smoother thanks to its native and intuitive design.
If you’re taking advantage of the RootHide jailbreak detection bypass for the Dopamine jailbreak on an A12-A15 device running iOS or iPadOS 15.0-15.4.1 and you also depend on Sileo as your package manager app, then we would strongly recommend opening Sileo and refreshing your sources this morning.

This past Wednesday, we saw the public testing release of the XinaA15 jailbreak tool for A12-A15 devices ranging from the iPhone XS to the iPhone 13 Pro Max running iOS 15.0-15.1.1, and while it supported tweak injection, there was an issue where users couldn’t sign in to repositories such as Havoc or Chariz via package managers like Sileo and Zebra. This, of course, meant that users couldn’t install their previously-purchased tweaks.
Sakura Development team member @dora2ios, previously known for their effort in creating the kok3shi jailbreak for 64-bit iOS 9.3.2-9.3.5 devices, Tweeted attention-grabbing screenshots this week of a jailbroken iPhone running iOS 16.1.
