The new Pangu iOS 9 – 9.0.2 untethered jailbreak solution came as a very welcome surprise for jailbreak fans across the globe. And now that the jailbreak is a bit stable, and many tweaks are already updated to support the latest jailbreak, what are the best repos/sources to have in Cydia?
Here we’re going to take a look at what we feel are the ten best repositories that you should have installed as sources in Cydia on your jailbroken device.
Ryan Petrich’s Repo
Ryan Petrich doesn’t really need an introduction to those familiar with the jailbreak community. The developer has been working tirelessly for as long as we can remember to not only produce and maintain staple jailbreak offerings such as Activator, but also pushing out experimental wares that utilize Apple’s latest technologies within iOS. There’s literally tons of excellent stuff hosted on Petrich’s own personal repository, but it’s also the place where you can find early betas of new Activator builds.
iCleaner Pro Repo
Stable URL: https://ib-soft.net/cydia
Beta URL: https://ib-soft.net/cydia/beta
Ivano Bilenchi, author of the excellent iCleaner Pro tweak for jailbroken devices, has two repositories available to jailbreakers. The first repository contains stable software releases, such as iCleaner and iCleaner Pro for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. The second repository is basically a home for what Bilenchi calls his “bleeding edge software” releases. Basically, a repo for beta creations that may or may not be functionally complete and bug free.
Karen’s Pineapple Repo
Karen, or angelXwind as she is more commonly known in the development community, owns and maintains her own repository that hosts a seriously large array of excellent packages. There’s also a secondary repository that contains webstack packages for the more advanced iOS user, as well as other useful system utilities, but it’s unlikely that the average user will need this. Karen’s main repo contains excellent offerings such as AppSync Unified, SafariSaver, PreferenceOrganizer 2, and IneffectivePower.
Forty Six & Two Repo
This is probably one of the lesser known repository gems out there, but it’s currently growing in popularity thanks to the release of packages such as the excellent Hapticle that mimics functionality of Apple’s Taptic Engine haptic feedback in iPhone 6s on older devices. There’s also a number of additional installations that will offer some joy.
HASHBANG Productions Repo
The HASHBANG Productions repository is one of the better known repos, and for good reason. There are literally tons and tons of excellent packages listed on the source. Packages such as StoreAlert, MapsOpener, DailyPaper, and BrightVol are all confirmed to be working with iOS 9 devices.
This one is extremely simple. This particularly repository contains the recently released RevealMenu package that is designed to bring certain 3D Touch functionality to older hardware that aren’t supported by Apple. That’s a good enough reason to get right in there and add it as a source.
CP Digital Darkroom Repo
If you’re insanely jealous of the fact that you can’t use any of the new powerful multitasking features that target the iPad Air 2, iPad mini 4 and iPad Pro from within iOS 9, then you’ll probably want to add this repository. There’s a ton of really great packages offered on the source, but it’s also home to Medusa, the new tweak that brings things like Picture-in-Picture mode and Split View to non-supported iPhones and iPads, and Shortcuts tweak which brings additional 3D Touch Quick Actions menu to first and third-party apps.
Philip Wong’s Repo
Philip wong is a fairly well-known name in the jailbreak game these days, and rightly so. The developer was one of the first to release iOS 9 compatibility for his extremely popular Speed Intensifier package that speeds up the native animations in iOS and makes everything appear a lot nippier and quicker.
F.lux Official Repo
F.lux tweak is extremely well-known for being one of the best installations around for those who want to improve their viewing experience on any iOS device. The official F.lux repository is the source to add to get this tweak, which is now available in beta form with support for iOS 9.
The CoolStar repository is a phenomenal resource but probably one that should only really be frequented by advanced power users due to the nature of what it hosts. Adding this source will provide access to advanced command line tools and other technical packages that go above and beyond the standard offering.
