Definition and Explanation of Cydia Jailbreak


Jailbreaking Definition

Jailbreaking is the process of opening up the capabilities for locked-down electronic devices to install software that is not allowed to install by the manufacturer.

Definition and Explanation of Cydia Jailbreak

What is Cydia Jailbreak?

Cydia is a third-party app store that is specially designed for jailbroken iOS devices. It does not support normal-stated iDevices, it only supports jailbroken iDevices. Since jailbreaking opens up to the capabilities to install third-party apps on iDevices, you need a third-party app store installed on your jailbroken iDevice. As a solution for that, Cydia Jailbreak has been introduced together, making Cydia Free as the default third-party app store for jailbroken devices. Therefore, when jailbreaking your iPhone, you get Cydia installed automatically on your device. With the help of that, you get the opportunity to install various third-party apps, tweaks, games, themes, extensions, and add-ons on iDevices after jailbreaking it.


Jailbreaking Methods

  • Untethered Jailbreak: It is a permanent jailbreak method that does not require a PC to proceed with the jailbreak. You can do everything on your iPhone to make it jailbroken with an untethered jailbreak app. Rebooting your device will not affect the jailbreak.
  • Tethered Jailbreak: This method requires a computer to plug the device in when jailbreaking. If you did not plug the device into the computer and booted the device with special software, it will not jailbreak your device.
  • Semi-Untethered Jailbreak: This is not a permanent jailbreak. You will lose the jailbreak after rebooting the device. You can re-run the jailbreak using special software on your device.
  • Semi-Tethered Jailbreak: This is also not a permanent jailbreak. You will lose the jailbreak after rebooting your iDevice. You must have a PC to plug in your device when jailbreaking. And you can do the same when repeating the jailbreak after rebooting the device.


Is Cydia Jailbreak Safe?

Jailbreaking iDevices gives an opportunity for cybercriminals to hack the device. When you jailbreak your iDevice, you lose Apple’s dedication to the device security. Therefore, Apple App Store does not check the sideloaded apps so that it may be a security risk. After jailbreaking an iDevice, you will stop receiving software updates so that you will not get new security updates either. However, many people tend to jailbreak and install Cydia anyway on their devices as jailbreak and Cydia gives more benefits than its drawbacks.
