When PPHelper jailbreak was released for iOS 9.3.3, it was welcomed with open arms, given that it was the first update to Cydia for some time. It was patched up very quickly with iOS 9.3.4 but a subsequent update to the jailbreak gave it unofficial support for iOS 9.3.5 download [ext link]. Most users have been successful at downloading Cydia iOS 9.3.5 but the jailbreak can’t be used by everyone as it only provides support for 64-bit devices.

Home Depot Jailbreak is the very latest jailbreak and it was released to allow owners of the older 32-bit devices to update Cydia. The last few jailbreaks have only been available for 64-bit devices, leaving the older devices alone. Home Depot is for iOS 9.3.x but it is a semi-untethered jailbreak. This means you must jailbreak your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch every single time you reboot your device, if this does change, we’ll let you know.

Method 4: Phoenix Jailbreak [ Expert Method ]
Not all iOS users were able to update to iOS 10 and some didn’t bother because there were no jailbreaks available for them to use. Those with a 32-bit device on iOS 9.3.5 now have that jailbreak in the form of Phoenix.
It is a semi-untethered jailbreak and you will need to use your Apple ID and Cydia Impactor to get it onto your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad but it is a godsend to those who have been missing out on using Cydia ever since iOS 10 was released.

Fix Crashing Issue :
Because of the way in which you install Cydia, it is going to crash usually within the first few days and all your tweaks will disappear with it. Reinstalling it will bring it back temporarily but, because Apple is revoking the certificate, it will crash again. To prevent this, you need to download Anti Revoke onto your device. This VPN tool will stop Apple from revoking the certificate and will protect your apps. Click the link below to get all the details:
