What is BigBoss Repo?

By default, with Cydia the BigBoss Repository is installed on all jailbroken devices. All packages are listed in categories. Navigate with ease through all add-ons, carrier bundles, data storage, development, education, entertainment, fonts, games, keyboard, messaging, multimedia, navigation, productivity, ringtones, security, terminal support, themes, utilities, widgets, etc.

Add a new repo to Cydia Sources, like BigBoss Repository URL to access new applications and amazing iOS tweaks. Be aware that the BigBoss repo is installed by default when using popular jailbreak tools, including the unc0ver or checkra1n tool.

What can you find in the BigBoss Repository?

BigBoss offers tweaks and apps compatible with iOS 4 up to the latest iOS 15 – iOS 16. Download and install thousands of add-ons for iPhone including components like Siri, DreamBoard, ControlCenter, Spotlight, themes for SpringBoard, NotificationCenter, SBSetings, tweaks to block ads, backup app settings, and even more. It is still up and running in 2023!

Great news! The BigBoss Repository has recently received an update, now providing support for rootless packages. This means you can not only download packages for traditional jailbreaks but also enjoy rootless options like Dopamine, XinaA15, and Palera1n. Embrace the newfound flexibility and possibilities with the latest repository update!

Rootless packages available in the BigBoss Repository are only visible in a rootless environment. If you try to view a rootless package on rootful jailbreak, it will be not listed in your package manager. The BigBoss Repository URL is the same for rootless and non-rootless jailbreaks.
