Icy For iOS 4.3.x Jailbroken iPhone, iPad, iPod touch Is Now Available Again As A Lighter & Faster Alternative To Cydia

Back in the early days of jailbreaking, there was a young Cydia competitor going by the name of Icy. Working in a similar way to Cydia, Icy was always the faster, smoother and generally shinier app aggregator and download service. Unfortunately development on the app was ceased but now it’s on its way back, and you can download a beta version right now.


Now compatible with all versions of iOS up to, and including 4.3.2, Icy has had a few tweaks and a new lick of paint but it’s still the same old Icy you might remember.

You will, of course, need to have a jailbroken iPhone, iPad or iPod touch to install it. Follow our step by step guide posted here to jailbreak your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch with Redsn0w on iOS 4.2.1 (or untethered with GreenPois0n RC5), or with Limera1n on iOS 4.1, or on iOS 4.3.1 with Redsn0w, PwnageTool 4.3 (untethered | tethered), or with Sn0wbreeze on Windows, or on iOS 4.3.2 with Redsn0w, PwnageTool 4.3 (tethered), or with Sn0wbreeze on Windows if you haven’t already.

Icy will be available for download next week, but if you can’t wait, iSpazio has a beta available to download right now, should the urge take you. Just add the http://repo.ispazio.net as Cydia repository and search for Icy.
