For some time, we were spoilt with the number of jailbreaks coming our way but things have slowed down significantly in the last year. While we have still had jailbreaks, most have been semi-untethered and most have been usable by only a small group of users. That has led to a rash of app installers being released, most of whom have tried to be a decent alternative to Cydia [ext link] but have only managed to offer small numbers of Cydia Tweaks.

TutuApp [ext link], TweakBox and others like them offer a little more but the best by far, and the closest to Cydia is Cyrus Installer. Cyrus offers mostly Cydia tweaks with just a little in the way of non-jailbreak content and it doesn’t require you to jailbreak to install it either. Cyrus Installer [ext link] supports iOS 7 through to iOS 11 and is packed with features, including:
Cyrus Installer Features :
