It doesn’t help that Apple has introduced new security features and that they are constantly updating the iOS with bug fixes and security fixes and the latest release is iOS 11.4.1.

Stop Cydia Crashing :
Because of the way you are downloading Cydia and because it is not an official app, it will crash and stop working within a few days. This is because Apple has revoked the app certificate, but you can stop this from happening. Simply install NessTool VPN tool to protect your certificates and save yourself the hassle of having to keep reinstalling Cydia. Find out more about NessTool and how to download it at the link.
Alternatives to Cydia :
Cydia will not work on every device but there are some alternatives. These third-party app installers offer some Cydia content but without you needing to jailbreak. They are not as comprehensive as Cydia, but they do provide a viable alternative:
- Tutu App
Tutu App is one of the early installers to be released and is home to a wide range of apps and games, You can download a few tweaks, lots of modified apps like Spotify++ and Snapchat++, tweaked games like Pokémon Go++ and loads of paid app store content for free. Check out the link to find out how to download Tutu App on your device.
Emus4U is a little different in that it offers us access to a series of games emulators. At one time we could only get these from Cydia and they are the only way to play console games on our devices. Emus4U offers several emulators, along with other useful content. Find out how to download Emus4U on your device by clicking the link
