Jailbreaks are a bit thin on the ground right now, but we are not without a way to download some Cydia tweaks. Plenty of app installers have been released to bring us a selection of tweaks, lots of paid apps for free and some of the top modified apps too and, although they can’t replace Cydia [ext link], they do offer enough to keep us going. As we head towards WWDC 2018, iOS 11 looks likely to end the same way as iOS 10, bereft of jailbreaks and with no clue as to when, or even if there will be another one.

One of the biggest problems with the app installers is that, because they are not official apps and, as a result, because Apple revokes unofficial app certificates regularly, they will all crash and stop working inside of a few days. Installing NessTool is the only way to save yourself from having to reactivate your chosen installer and apps on your iPad every few days. NessTool installs, after permission from you, a VPN on your iPad that then blocks Apple from verifying the certificates , this means they can’t revoke them.
