Stop Cydia Crashing Issue :

Cydia will crash inside of a week after you install it, and this will happen to all users. Reinstalling it will work but only temporarily and the reason why is because Apple will keep on revoking the certificates, causing Cydia to stop working, along with all your apps and tweaks. This can easily be stopped by downloading NessTool, a VPN configuration tool that stops Apple revoking the certificates. Find out how by clicking the link and following the NessTool [ Full Tutorial ] download guide.

Cydia Alternatives :

Cydia will not work on all devices but, we do have some other alternatives. Several app installers have now been released to provide a limited selection of Cydia tweaks without needing that jailbreak. Have a go with these two :

  • AppValley

AppValley is an excellent source of content, including a decent selection of Cydia tweaks, lots of modified apps, including Pokémon Go++, Instagram++ and Snapchat++ as well as a whole heap of paid content for free and loads of other apps and games.

  • TweakBox

Because TweakBox has so much to choose from, the developers have set it up in categories.
