If you have a jailbroken iOS device, you can also download and install deb files manually instead of using Cydia, Sileo, or any other package manager. In other words, you don’t always have to rely on Cydia or any other package managers to get all your jailbreak tweaks or apps. So, you will have to install .deb files manually for some reasons, such as having some modified tweaks and apps as deb files, and a developer gives you a .deb file to install for beta testing or creating your .deb package to install on your device. So, you can simply use the popular Filza file manager app to install .deb files. This article shows you step by step how to install deb files iOS 14 with Filza file manager.
