iCleaner Pro now supports iOS 11 firmware
After a successful closed alpha testing program, Ivano Bilenchi has released iCleaner version 7.7.0~beta1.
This tool is now available for download on Ivano’s beta source that is different from his main “stable” source.
Some users tried to install the version available on BigBoss repository, which resulted in errors.
For the uninitiated, this amazing tool allows you to clean your cache, junk files, disable tweaks, daemons, and much more at the click of a button.
It weighs a measly 4.5MB but is incredibly useful. Even if you own a 256GB device, it’s still a great tool to have in your jailbreak arsenal.
Just make sure you have Electra jailbreak (Cydia version) on your device before you install it and you are good to go.
The latest beta version of iCleaner, which is 7.7.0~beta1 at the time of writing this tutorial, supports –
- A compatible Apple device
- Internet connection
How to install iCleaner Pro on iOS 11 on iPhone X and below
Step 1 Open Cydia.
Step 2 Go to Sources tab and tap Edit > Add.
Step 3 Add Ivano’s beta repository to Cydia – https://ib-soft.net/cydia/beta. It is essential to use this repository because the installation will fail should you try to use other sources.
Step 4 Once the repository appears on your device, tap on it and go to its “All Packages” section. It contains just one Debian package, which is what you want to install.
Step 5 Tap Modify > Install > Confirm and wait for the installation to finish.
If it displays “Depends apt”, you must first install the APT 0.7 Strict (lib) package from Electra’s default iOS Utilities source.
Step 6 Once the installation gets over, the app will appear on your home screen. Launch it.
Step 7 Press the Clean button in the top-right corner to start the cleanup process.
It will now start deleting the cache and other junk files. It is completely safe to install and use and never interferes with Electra’s APFS snapshot or other core files.
I was able to free up a big chunk of my storage space (1.05GB) thanks to iCleaner Pro.
If you have been using your device for a long time, you will also be able to free up quite a few gigabytes of storage space.
It’s great to have this app back on my iPhone after such a long time. If you haven’t installed it already, go ahead and do so now.
