The creator and maintainer of Cydia, Jay Freeman has recently confirmed that he’s working on an update to include the new iOS 11 jailbreak capabilities. A new team was also planning on resurrecting and breathing life into the popular Installer project, which hasn’t been updated since Installer 4.0 in 2014.
Now, the development team of Installer 5 for iOS 11 app has taken the opportunity to share some work-in-progress designs as well as a short teasing video of Installer 5.0.
The screening of the 8-second teasing video is that it has a very “iOS 11 App Store” look and feel about it. It seems like the team behind the Installer has taken inspiration and comfort from what Apple managed to get a lot of iOS device users on its side when it revealed the new revamped iOS 11 App Store earlier this year at WWDC. Installer team also tried to keep the same experience as native as possible.
Although the video shows a featured app on the first page with the individual navigating jumping into that app and viewing the associated screenshots. These remind you of the App Store UI.
There are several static screenshots of Installer 5 have been shared, too. They all show the main Featured tap of the app, which, again conjures up images of Apple’s App Store thanks to the application UI and how popular apps or how many installations are shown beneath that.
Here is a quick visual of the Install tab that gives a breakdown of categories to browse and surf, such as Tweaks, Themes, Tools, Apps, Games, and Development utilities.
Finally, the last screenshot shows the Update section which instantly gives a user an overview of the packages which have pending updates, something like Apple’s stock iOS App Store, as well as a historical look at updates which have recently been installed by others.
Sharing a video and screenshots of Installer 5 gives a better impact on actually getting an estimated time frame of release or an update on progress is somewhat different. The team has already had to make alterations from their original plan of Installer 5, likewise – ditching the zip format in favor of apt or .deb, so it’s unknown if this has set the release back. As always, if we get any additional information we will be sure to let you know immediately.
An alternative to Cydia, Installer 5 is entirely looking great. I for one can’t wait to try it!
Happy New Year 2018.
