Another preview of Cydia replacement, Sileo, has been pushed out into the public domain. This time, the demonstration of Sileo, the so-called Cydia alternative/replacement installer shows faster performance and much more. Here are the details on it.
It was last week when we managed to get our first look at how to add a repository to the Sileo installer app. Now, with the latest development provided in a new video teaser, we’re getting more excited to see just how fast and efficient refreshing repos will be.
This second teasing video has been pushed out into the public domain via the new and authoritative @getSileo Twitter account. That looks to be the default location for information and news to grab to what is described as “a power APT Package Manager for jailbroken iOS 11 and up.”
The proof that immediately evident that the Twitter biography is taking a whole stab at Cydia by describing itself as “proper.” Yet another huge jump in the jailbreak apps/tweaks installing system, which Jay Freeman, as well as multiple other members of the community, would definitely argue against and take exception to that statement. However, we disagree.
The new and the latest video itself reveals all of the added repositories being refreshed with a pull-to-refresh type mechanism. It then shows the user jumping into the All Packages section and choosing categories one-by-one to show all of the packages contained within a specific category or source. There is also the visibility of the real-time search functionality within the app with the US instantly updating to reflect whatever the user is currently typing in.
It’s definitely an important combat to share not only because it gives us yet another look at the replacement app, but also, what it’s capable of, too. It also shows just how fast an update and refresh can be with Project Repo-Unclutter installed which immediately gets rid of non-compatible packages and tweaks.
The account and team, including CoolStar, have also provided some additional info in a variety of tweets that give a little additional insight into Sileo. For starters, there has been some speculation about whether or not Sileo will block known repositories which host pirated content.
In fact, the official account has already confirmed that this will not be the original case, but that users are “responsible for their own devices,” which includes the repos they add and the packages that they installed. No help will be provided if problems do arise from those installations but those users will be free to access pirated repos should they wish to.
CoolStar and his team have been very much active on Twitter waxing lyrical about Sileo and the benefits that it will bring to jailbroken users due to that it doesn’t otherwise index approximately 55,000 items which Cydia displays but which haven’t been updated to offer support and compatibility since iOS 9. It would appear that is why Sileo is so quick to refresh content as it indexes a lot less than Cydia here. Check out the video for yourself and see what you think.
