The two largest repository Cydia was recently closed. ModMy and Now no longer function, because the jailbreak community is “dying.”
In the past jailbreaking was very popular among iPhone owners. After hacking your device you could install on your smartphone any app that prevent the App Store, or completely change the appearance of the operating system.
Over time, the need in hacking almost disappeared. iOS has evolved greatly in recent years. Many of the jailbreak tweaks turned into the basic functions of the operating system. Record video from screen, improved multitasking, quick access to settings Wi-Fi and cellular networks. All of this is available without installing additional software.
While iOS is becoming more secure and to hack the system harder. Many developers refuse to work on new versions of the jailbreak due to the fact that it takes too much time and effort. Many users jailbreak and the people who created it, acknowledge that hacking is no longer needed.
“I think the jailbreak on the verge and will soon die,” said hacker Nicholas Allegra.
Now there was only one large repository BigBoss. There are also smaller, but many of them were used to spread viruses. Therefore, the representatives of ModMy and Now recommend to use the BigBoss repo.
