    Icy Installer 3 (Cydia alternative)

    Icy Installer 3 is Developed by ArtikusHG and It is a DPKG-based package manager for iOS Operating System. its ability to load packages at lightning-fast speeds. It is very lightweight App if we compare to Cydia.

    For the uninitiated, version 3 is a complete rewrite of the legacy Icy Package Installer for iPhone OS 2.0. It was originally developed by RiPDev.

    Many Developers tried on this Icy Installer 3 but no one succeeds

    Since this new installer looks promising, I decided to take it for a test drive on my iPad mini on iOS 9.3.5.

    WHICH VERSIONS DOES IT SUPPORT TO Install Icy Installer 3?       

    As of now, Icy Installer 3 works only up till iOS 10.3.3 beginning from iOS 7 (legacy firmware). You can use it on any of the following iOS versions.

    • iOS 7-7.1.2
    • iOS 8-8.4.1
    • iOS 9-9.3.5
    • iOS 10-10.3.3
    • iOS 11-11.1.2 (incompatible)

    Apart from that, only 64-bit devices are supported at the moment because the developer used iOS 11 SDK.

    As is evident, you should use it only for testing purposes. It’s still in early development stages and only allows manual Debian package installation.


    • According to Artikus, it crashes on Electra jailbreak (iOS 11-11.1.2) firmware. He doesn’t have any test devices running iOS 11, which will definitely delay a full-blown release for iOS 11. The next step would be to make it compatible with the latest iOS operating system.
    • The developer also intends to roll out bug fixes as soon as possible.
    • Improvements to the GUI.
    • Adding support for 32-bit Apple devices.
    • Add support for third-party Cydia repositories.
