Why you need to use Alternatives for Cydia Impactor

Cydia impactor was the unique IPA side loader for a long time created by Saurik. However, currently this is not performing well. It gives Certificate Revoked issues Jailbreak apps such as Unc0ver, Electra & Chimera. Last November, Saurik promised to update Cydia Impactor.

However, because of his busy work schedule he couldn’t attend to that up to now. He couldn’t even fix the Cydia Package manager timely.

Therefore, jailbreakers had to find alternative methods to the side loading process. As a result, Cydia Impactor Alternative has come. It has many Cydia alternatives. However, AltDeploy & nullxlImpactor are the newly released best alternatives to Cydia.
