What is Cyrus Installer?
Cyrus Installer is a new Cydia Installer alternative. It promises to bring jailbreak tweaks to users who are stuck on non-jailbroken firmware versions.
It is an online depository of –
- Cydia tweaks (iCleaner, xCleaner, iTransmission, etc)
- iOS Emulators (Happy Chick, iNDS, etc)
- ++ Enhancements (such as Snapchat++, Youtube++, etc)
- Apps (Kodi, TutuApp, Yalu102, Pangu, etc)
Cyrus Installer comes loaded with a modern minimalistic dark user interface which is very user-friendly. As of now, it has a collection of 80+ apps and tweaks and the number is bound to grow in the future.
All of these features make it perfect for jailbreakers as well as non-jailbreakers. It is even more useful for users who are always on-the-go and don’t have access to a computer.
On the whole, it works exactly like TutuApp and Appvalley installers. Even the setup process is not complicated at all – simply open a URL, tap a few buttons and you are good to go.
Is Cyrus Installer safe to use?
Yes, this new Cydia alternative is totally safe to download and install on your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. All the apps available on this Installer are free from adware or spyware.
Since the service is free, it does rely on unobtrusive advertisements to support the developers. The advertisements shown in the apps are not a security hazard whatsoever.
If you are still hesitant to use it, you must wait for a jailbreak. For those who are on jailbreak-able firmware, can use the following jailbreak tool.
