Jailbreaking used to be something we took for granted but, when iOS 10 was released, it all came to a crashing halt. At least, it almost did. There were so few jailbreaks to be had that very few people could get their hands on them. The only real jailbreak we had was Yalu and only certain groups of users could enjoy it but, now, we have something to take the place of Cydia [ext link] while we wait for the next jailbreak.

Stop FtOS Crashing :
Because FtOS is not official and because Apple doesn’t sign the app certificate that lets it run, they will revoke it, and this causes FtOS to crash within a couple of days of installation, along with all the apps you downloaded too. Installing it again will bring it back but you will have to keep on reinstalling it unless you stop Apple from doing this. NessTool is a VPN tool that will protect your app certificates, so they can’t be revoked; find out how it works and how to download NessTool [ext link] by clicking the link.
Popular FtOS Apps :
FtOS has plenty to choose from and the following are two of the most downloaded apps:
Social media apps will always be popular and one of the most used is called Snapchat. However, much as it is a good app it is missing a few vital features and, to fill the gap, Snapchat++ was developed. Snapchat++ is a feature-packed app, offering not just the stock features but a few extra too. Those extra include a stronger recording strength, in-app customizations and the ability for location spoofing too. See what else Snapchat++ has and how you can download it by following the linked post.
Screen Recorders are useful apps and will always be popular and one of the most downloaded used to be AirShou. At one time, this could only be got by jailbreaking but now anyone can use it on any iOS device on iOS 7 or higher. AirShou offers features such as Full HD video recording, stereo recording, and easy controls while taking up very little in the way of resources on your device. See what else AirShou has to offer and how you can download it through FtOS by clicking on the linked post.
FtOS Alternative :
FtOS is a comprehensive installer with plenty of apps and games but it won’t be for everyone. There are alternative installers so have a look at one of these:
AppValley is a great installer, very comprehensive and offering one of the best ranges of content. You can download some of the top Cydia-only tweaks and emulators, a few modified apps, such as Pokémon Go++, Spotify++ and Instagram++, plenty of premium app store apps and games for free and a whole load more. For all the details and the steps to download AppValley, follow the linked post.
Another decent alternative is TweakBox, a fully-featured app installer with plenty to choose from. Because there are millions of apps and games to look through, the developers tidied it all up into useful categories, such as modified games like Pokémon Go++, modified apps, like Instagram+, iPhone apps, Cydia apps and tweaks and a lot more besides. Check out the link for a full download guide and more information on TweakBox [ext link].
FtOS will never take the place of Cydia completely but it can certainly offer us some of what we can’t get from it right now. Jailbreaking doesn’t look to set to get any easier in the future and third-party app installers, like FtOS are the best we are going to get. More comprehensive than most, FtOS offers a wide range of apps, games and other content, tweaked, modified and for free.
Do download and install FtOS on your iOS 10 device and let us know your thoughts. For more updates, follow us on Facebook.
