There are two reasons why people want to jailbreak their iPhones, iPads or just about any Apple device. One (and the most common) is to get free access to each and every app you see on iTunes, paid or free. Everything will be become free and cracked in a matter of weeks or mere days after an app’s official release date. The other ones are those who want to get the best out of their Apple Devices by using Cydia tweaks.
These Cydia tweaks allow people to do things that they won’t be able to do on any normal version of iOS alone. Things like recording screen activity, handheld/console emulators, free tethering etc. These things are only available through Cydia tweaks and there’s rarely any iTunes app counterpart for them.
What To Do If Jailbreaking is Not an Option
Normally, to get Cydia Tweak Apps, a Jailbroken Apple device is required. Most of the time, Cydia is installed as a part of the jailbreaking procedure from evasi0n and Pangu. This saves you the trouble of having to search and install it yourself. Getting Cydia tweaks from the Cydia app is also a straightforward thing.
The problem is if you can’t or don’t want to jailbreak your iPhone. Jailbreaking is a great way to access free apps and tweaks. On the flip side, it voids your warranty and with the constant updates from Apple, it’s not immediately available per major iOS updates. It may come to a point that people would even stop working on Jailbreak solutions at all, though that’s still far from happening. You can, however, use an alternative solution that will allow you to get Cydia tweaks, if that is what you’re only after.
