Up until last year, jailbreaks were common, released for just about every iOS version going. For a long time, Apple threatened to end the cat and mouse game between them and the jailbreakers and, with iOS 10 they almost succeeded. Very few jailbreaks were released for the last iOS, only really Yalu Jailbreak and only a few users could make use of that one. Most of us have been left without access to Cydia [ext link] for some time now and there is no guarantee that this situation will change with iOS 11 .

How to Fix FtOS Crashing Issue :
When you install FtOS in this way, it will crash after a few days. This is nothing to do with the app but more to do with Apple. Because they do not consider FtOS to be an official app and won’t let it in the app store, they will revoke the certificate and the only way to get FtOS ad all your apps back is to reinstall it. Stopping it from happening in the first place is easy; all you do is install NessTool [ext link] and let it protect your app certificates so they can’t be revoked.

Top FtOS Apps for Download :
FtOS is packed with apps and games and these are two of the most popular:
Snapchat may be one of the more popular social media apps, but it isn’t a complete app. There are a few important features missing, features that would drastically improve the user experience and that is why Snapchat++ was released. A modified version of the app, Snapchat++ offers location spoofing, the ability to increase recording strength, several in-app customizations and a whole lot more. Find out what Snapchat++ can offer you and how to download it by clicking on the given link.
AirShou has always been an incredibly popular screen recorder although, at one time, you could only download it through Cydia. Now anyone can download it without having to jailbreak and it is fully compatible with all iOS devices on iOS 7 or higher. AirShou takes up few resources on your device but offers top-class screen recording features, including Full HD Video Recording with high-quality stereo recording and very simple in-app controls. Find out how you can download AirShou on your device today by clicking the given link.
FtOS Alternative :
FtOS is a good app installer but if it doesn’t have the apps that you are searching for, try one of the following alternatives:
AppValley is a feature-filled app installer, full of all the latest app store games, all for free. It also has a few Cydia tweaks, some of the best modified apps, like Pokémon Go++ and Snapchat++, along with a lot of other content that can’t be got from anywhere else.

TweakBox is the second alternative to FtOS and is another one that is full of useful content.
