Cydia and Sileo on Checkra1n

Cydia and Sileo on Checkra1n: In case if you miss it, the Sileo Team officially launched Diatrus’ Cydia fork that allows checkra1n jailbreak users having both the Cydia and Sileo package managers running on the same device. It’s due to a historic moment for the Sileo Team because it’s the first time an official solution of this magnitude launched for a jailbreak not created by the Electra Team.

Getting started

Firstly uninstall Cydia. Once Cydia uninstalled from your checkra1n device post-Sileo installation. Then move on to the next section about getting Cydia back.

Getting Cydia back after installing Sileo on checkra1n

If you get Cydia up and running alongside Sileo on your checkra1n jailbreak, then follow the steps below:

Step 1:

Firstly, Launch Sileo from your Home screen and click on the Sources tab.

Step 2:

Click on the Sileo (checkra1n) repository.

Step 3:

Click on the Packaging section.

Step 4:

Click on the Cydia Installer package.

Step 5:

Click on the light blue GET button.

Step 6:

Also, click on the Queue tab labeled Queued – 1 Package.

Step 7:

Click on the light blue Confirm button.

Step 8:

Once the installation completes, click on the light blue Done button.

Step 9:

Now return to your Home screen and you should view both Cydia and Sileo.

And that’s! All done!


If you experience problems refreshing some of your sources in Cydia post-installation then this is considered normal and expected behavior at this time. Diatrus intends to sort out repository refresh problems in a future update.

Furthermore, it’s technically Diatrus’ custom fork of Cydia made to work with Sileo on the same device. However, it seems to work just as well as the official Cydia launch at first glance.
