Sileo by Electra Jailbreak Team

Updated July 25, 2018

Sileo, a known name in the medical field but not in the jailbreak community until now. But, Sileo will be a familiar phrase in the jailbreak community eventually with the rise of Sileo project by Electra jailbreak team. They describe it as the Cydia alternative or replacement to the Cydia as Saurik doesn’t seem to be update Cydia as it was years ago. This is a step forward from Electra jailbreak team as fully compatible Cydia is only available for iOS 10.3.3 and lower versions.

Electra jailbreak for iOS 11 versions (iOS 11 - iOS 11.3.1 at the moment to be exact) has added support to the Cydia but it was a patched version of Cydia. Hopefully it did the job while waiting for official Cydia release for iOS 11 from Saurik himself as he was promised. Jailbreak community waited months for the iOS 11 Cydia release even after few jailbreak releases. At the end, Electra jailbreak team decided to build a replacement for Cydia. It can’t be Cydia due to copyright issues, but will do the same once Cydia does and in a more efficient manner.

What Sileo Actually is? Pros and Cons

As mentioned earlier, Sileo is the Cydia replacement developing by Electra jailbreak team. It will be support all 64-bit devices running iOS 11 and later versions. Just as with everything else, Sileo has its own pros and cons. Let’s check it out.


  • Cydia supported repos will work with Sileo without additional configurations
  • Users can add tweaks easily with Cydia similar interfaces
  • Tweak developers have a platform for their products when updated for iOS 11
  • Unsupported tweaks will be filtered out, so that users don’t have to be worry about the tweaks they are installing
  • User friendly UI for safe mode with more options
  • Sileo will be load quite faster than Cydia
  • Cydia purchases can continue with Sileo
  • Cons

  • Will only support iOS 11 and later versions
  • Sileo supports only 64-bit devices
  • Tweak filtering could be an issue for tweak developers and testers
  • Sileo Download

    Sileo download is not available at the moment as Electra jailbreak team is still developing the project and we believe it shows a significant progress by now. This is a video of Sileo in work.

    Seems pretty clean for an undergoing project and much more faster than Cydia.

    Release Date of Sileo

    Release date has not announced by the Electra team just yet and we will be able to let you know once they do. However, as the project flows we believe it will be available for tests and optimizations within 3 weeks. Will get to you with more news on Sileo as it happened. Keep in touch.

    Jailbreak App Installers

    Jailbreaking is not necessary to install jailbreak apps but to install tweaks. There are several methods and jailbreak app installers out there, but a few is actually functional and worthy.

    TweakMo Jailbreak App Installer

    TweakMo is a Cydia alternative that brings jailbroken apps on your iDevice. What makes it even more unique is that you can enjoy tweaked apps or extensions even without actually jailbreaking your device.

    TaigOne Jailbreak Tool Finder

    TaigOne is a jailbreak finder which simply allows iDevice user to grab the most suitable jailbreak according to the iOS version. If a jailbreak is not available for a particular iOS version, TaigOne suggests you the most recommended Cydia alternative you can enjoy.
