A minor yet important update to the app has announced by the team behind the Sileo package manager project.
Now at version 1.0.2, this latest release offers a fix for an issue that is caused by adding a single repo multiple times as well as coming with some language translations.
For those who are unaware, Sileo started out as a rather ambitious project looking for ways to replace Cydia as the accepted package manager for jailbroken devices.
Essentially, it would do everything that Cydia currently does but he offered for the latest firmware versions with the promise of keeping them up to date, and, of course, have the additional speed and efficiency benefits that you would expect from a modern app engineered from scratch.
Currently, it hasn’t managed to dethrone Cydia but it does ship with the Chimera and Electra jailbreaks directly meaning it is actually operating on a lot of devices globally. Those device owners are using Sileo to manage repository as well as for installing, updating, removing apps and packages on their jailbroken devices.
Now, with the latest version, an important bug has been fixed, new languages have been added, and the whole Sileo app should be more efficient with its memory resources.
The official changelog released with Sileo version 1.0.2 is as follows:
- Prevent adding a repo more than once
- Reduce memory usage
- Add Chinese translation
- Uses separate translations for French (Canada) and French (France)
If you have already jailbroken your device then you can simply load the app, refresh the sources, and you should find that the update is ready for you.
The team has also promised that a Sileo Upgrade Helper utility will be coming in the near future to help people upgrade to Sileo from Cydia on jailbroken iOS 11 devices. As mentioned, you can grab the Sileo 1.0.2 update, right now.
