Since first release back in 2008 there are 1.4 million apps in App Store. Developed and maintained by Apple this digital distribution platform represents the only official way you can get apps on your Apple device or also known iDevice. App Store is only available on devices like iPod, iPhone, iPad. But because of Apple’s restrictive Terms and Conditions for developers there were many cases when developers had their apps rejected by Apple. This was not the only thing that pissed developers you couldn’t launch on App Store software packages like tweaks but also themes and ringtones.
In 2007 all problems were solved when the first jailbreak tool was launched by iPhone Dev Team and in 2008 with the help of one brilliant mind Jay Freeman aka saurik we have seen the launch of a new software distribution platform but this time for jailbroken devices. A jailbroken is basically a device that has all restrictions that imposed by Apple removed. Now you can alter the operating system by installing apps that were reject in App Store, tweaks, ringtones, and themes but you also benefit for free from paid or free apps found on App Store. Day by day the jailbreak community grows.
Before Cydia appeared all installations on jailbroken devices was done manually, there wasn’t a distribution platform. Even though Cydia does what App Store does in terms of distribution in order to have all those apps you need to add cydia repos. Cydia sources are digital catalogs from developer teams that offer packages like cydia apps, cydia tweaks, cydia themes and ringtones.
When you install cydia will get by default a basic list of repos, but in order to get the most experience from your device get Sinful repo. It has a huge collection of cracked apps, tweaks and manu more interesting packages. Considering that there are cases when they have or not jailbroken their device or cydia installed I’m going to present you a short tutorial on how you can get Sinful repo on a brand now iPhone.
Adding Sinful source in Cydia
1. Open Cydia, if it’s the first time when you launched Cydia approve any required upgrades.
2. Tap Manage
3. Tap Sources
4. Edit button on top right
5. Add button on top left
6. You will be prompted with popup screen asking you for ATP url aka repo url. Input http://sinfuliphonerepo.com
7. Tap on Add Source and now wait for cydia to do its job.
Now I can say happy testing, tweaking and gaming on your jailbroken iDevice.
