As you might come to expect, the Sileo Team has been incrementally updating the community via Twitter with blurbs about what’s new. Given just how much has changed in the Sileo beta preview since our last coverage, this piece will sum up everything new from this week.
Here’s a brief summary of what’s new:
2/16/2019 – Sileo 0.7b4 released with the following changes:
– Deeper support for 3D Touch
– After 3D Touching a package, you can now swipe up on the preview to reveal quick actions
2/18/2019 – Sileo Team updates various repository packages:
– Users can now use Sileo alongside Cydia or uninstall Cydia completely for a Sileo-only experience
2/19/2019 – Sileo 0.7b6 released with the following changes:
– Fix a crash that could transpire when installing 15 or more packages at one time
2/19/2019 – Sileo 0.7b7 released with the following changes:
– Support app backgrounding
– Packages can now be installed while Sileo is backgrounded and the user performs other tasks
2/20/2019 – APT version 1.7.2 released with the following changes:
– Fix an issue with certain dependency resolution cases failing to work properly in Sileo
Just to reiterate, these updates are only intended for jailbreakers who’ve used
the Electra tool to achieve a jailbreak on iOS 11.0-11.4.1. If you’re using Pwn20wnd’s unc0ver jailbreak tool
instead, then these updates don’t apply to you.
It’s worth noting that iOS developer LaughingQuoll recently accepted the burden of working on a Sileo build especially for unc0ver devices. It’s unknown when Sileo for unc0ver might be released, but it’s great to see an official solution since Samg_is_a_Ninja’s unofficial installation method came to an end after recent changes were made to the electratools repository.
