While we wait patiently for the next jailbreak, there is piece of great news for those of you already using Yalu Jailbreak on your iOS device. No doubt you already know that, because Yalu is side loaded onto your device using Cydia Impactor and your Apple ID, the jailbreak app certificate expires every 7 days and you have to use Cydia Impactor to re-sign the certificate. This is nothing short of irritating, especially if the certificate expires when you are nowhere near your computer at the time so the great news we have for you will stop all of this and it’s called Extender Installer.

Extender Installer is based on Cydia Extender, developed by Saurik but it is a much better version. When your Yalu jailbreak app expires, Extender Installer will automatically re-sign it for you, alleviating the need to be next to a computer or having to go through the hassle of doing it all yourself. Here’s how to install it,
How to Install Extender Installer :
Obviously, you must have Yalu jailbreak installed first; we are going to add a new repository to Cydia :
- Open Cydia and tap on Sources
- Tap Edit > Add
- In the box provided, type in this URL exactly as shown: http://repo.incendo.ws
- Tap Add and wait for the package to be installed
- Now you can go into the repository and search for Extender Installer
- Install it as you would any other tweak
- Your device will respring to complete the installation and you will find the Extender Installer app icon on your home screen
- Tap on it to open the app and tap on the tab for More
- Ensure that you are signed in using your Apple ID , if you are not, tap Sign and sign in. It is recommended that you set up a dummy Apple ID for this, not use your own one
- Staying under the More tab, tap on Resign Application When , this lets you specify when an app should be automatically signed
That’s all you have to do now, whenever the Yalu certificate expires, Extender Installer will resign it automatically and the same will apply to any other app that you side load using Cydia Impactor. When any app is automatically re-signed, you will receive a notification informing you.
