Cydia Failsafe – Reinstall Cydia without Computer/iFunBox/Terminal

Another day, another tweak. A new tweak has just been released that keeps Cydia safe at all times. Here’s how it works.

How Cydia Failsafe Works

Have you ever accidentally deleted or removed Cydia from your device? If yes, then you know getting Cydia back up can be quite a chore.

Even if you don’t accidentally delete Cydia, you can still be forced to remove it. This happens primarily because the Installer along with several packages doesn’t install properly. Establishing an SSH connection is not for everyone.

This is where Cydia Failsafe comes in.

Cydia Failsafe tweak is a once-click tool for reinstalling Cydia without terminal/SSH access. It is developed by tweak developer GewoonDani.


It works without iFunBox, computer (PC/Mac), iFile/Filza File Manager, Terminal, or SSH. You don’t even need to jailbreak your device again just to get Cydia back. Once click and you’re good to go.

Remember, this utility is preemptive, not reactive meaning you won’t be able to install and use it after you delete Cydia. You must install it beforehand if you want to reinstall Cydia in the future.


  • A jailbroken iPhone, iPad, or iPod
  • iOS 10-10.2
