How to Download / Install Sileo?

Sileo is a Cydia alternative for iOS and iPadOS and the latest Sileo version supports iOS 16 versions. You may think why do we need Sileo when there is Cydia. Well, the answer is Sileo will gradually replace Cydia. And it is the default package manager for Chimera Jailbreak, Taurine Jailbreak, Odyssey Jailbreak, Cheyote Jailbreak (to be released), Palera1n Jailbreak (to be released) which is faster than the old package manager Cydia. What does that mean? When you jailbreak your iPhone or the iPad using one of the jailbreak tools listed above, Sileo will be installed automatically in the same way that Cydia is installed in other jailbreak tools.

Chimera is the successor of Electra Jailbreak and supports some iOS 12 versions. Learn more about Chimera Jailbreak
