Why doesn’t Cydia Eraser support iOS 10.3?
As you know, Saurik hasn’t been active in the jailbreak scene of late. Since he is the only developer of Cydia Eraser, a proper release has been delayed.
Cydia Eraser will definitely receive an update in the future, that’s for sure. But you must keep in mind that there’s no official ETA yet.
With that said, you can still use Cydia Eraser by applying a few simple “hacks”. All you need to do is rename a couple of files using a file manager and you are all set.
Before you move onto the tutorial, ensure that you have functional file manager such as Filza installed on your device.
Get Cydia Eraser to work on iOS 10.3-10.3.3
- Open Filza file manager
- Go to this location – /Applications/Eraser.app/
- Delete Eraser_ file
- Rename Eraser file as Eraser_
- Restart your device and re-jailbreak
You can use the exact same fix for other apps that don’t work on iOS 10.3.x such as CocoaTop, BytaFont 3, CrashReporter, etc.
This method only works with jailbreak apps, not jailbreak tweaks.
Here’s how you can get BytaFont to work on your device.
- Open Filza
- Go to /Applications/BytaFont3.app/
- Delete BytaFont3
- Rename BytaFont3_ as BytaFont3
You can repeat this process for other apps as well except for GameGem, which has a different location and file names.
- Open Filza
- Go to /Applications/MemSearch.app/
- Delete _MemSearch
- Rename MemSearch as _MemSearch
