With so few jailbreaks available for everyone to use right now, there are a lot of users who are not able to install the tweaks and apps that are used to using to modify their devices, as well as downloading a whole host of paid games and apps for free. Apple has now released iOS 10.3.1 download [ext link] and that pushes the chances of a jailbreak further away but, luckily for many users, including those who have no interest in jailbreaking, there is another option.

It’s an app installer called HipStore and, while it doesn’t drill down to the same level that Cydia [ext link] does, it does offer a decent and usable alternative. While it is fully supported on iOS 10.3.1, you cannot download it from the iOS app store. That doesn’t mean it isn’t safe to use and we are going to give you the steps to download it onto iOS 10.3.1.

HipStore is not quite the same as Cydia and shouldn’t be seen as a complete replacement. It is a good alternative for use while we wait for an iOS 10.3.1 jailbreak and for those who have no wish to jailbreak but would still like some different apps and modifications on their devices.
