iOS Jailbreak Repositories Begin to Close Down

Jailbreak popularity continues to decrease. If you have been in the community for a while you probably remember the years when jailbreaking was something almost vital for every iPhones user. Apple did not bring all the functions that were needed so the jailbreaking community managed to bring all the “missing parts.”

However, Apple had quite a fight with jailbreakers in the past years and it appears that it finally won. Not only that it managed to block every jailbreak attempt by fixing every vulnerability as soon as it was discovered, but users no longer feel the need for jailbreak.

ModMy and MaCiti closed down

Two major jailbreak repositories closed recently. This is just another bad sign for the jailbreak community.

ModMy was the first one to close and it explained that it was not wise to keep it open:

“After ModMy, Mobile Nations (ModMy’s parent company) and SaurikIT finished our discussions, there was a clear but sad result to the issue of Cydia and repositories. ModMyi was not plausible to keep going as server costs were insane and the money the repository generated was way below the required amount to keep the repository, not with an economic gain, but to even keep it non-profit.”

MaCiti also closed last week as a consequence of the “death spiral” in jailbreak popularity.

Considering the fact that recent iOS versions have not been jailbroken so far, it is hard to believe that they will. Nevertheless, users continue to hope: ““With all the talking going around about ‘jailbreaking being dead’ or how it’s dying, I’m here to reassure everyone that this subreddit’s discord is still active every day. I know times have been a bit tough for everyone, but that just means we need to focus on what we have at the moment.”
