What is extra_cydia?
Developer Xerub has updated extra_recipe to work with yalu102-comaptible devices. However, this new version doesn’t install Cydia and enable Substrate by default.
This is where extra_cydia comes in.
extra_cydia jailbreak is an extensively modified version of the original extra_recipe jailbreak. It is developed by Xerub and modified by a new developer OothecaPickle. Thinks of it as extra_recipe for iPad and iPhone 6S or older devices.
The vanilla extra_recipe only supports iPhone 7 and 7 plus. The new modified extra_cydia version brings support to devices that were compatible with yalu102.
Before you use this jailbreak, keep the following things in mind –
- The installation process remains the same.
- You can use this IPA for a fresh install.
- It installs Cydia and enables Substrate automatically.
As far as the differences and advantages are concerned, I will discuss them in another article.
- Download extra_cydia.IPA (latest version)
