Nowadays, the art of jailbreaking has been made as simple as possible and you only need to install Cydia with its default repos such as the Cydia BigBoss repo and it will work perfectly. During jailbreaking, it is always essential that you follow all the steps so that you may get all the repos you want. It is uncommon for people to jailbreak their phones only to find that a given repo is missing and it can get worse when that is the one they need so much.
As the largest of repositories found in Cydia, the BigBoss repo contains just about any app you might need and all tweaks that you have heard or never heard of in the Jailbreak world. We have featured quite a lot of them on this website and you can check them out.
If you have Jailbroken your phone but couldn’t find the Cydia BigBoss repo, you might be disappointed. The same is applicable if you accidentally deleted it and don’t know how to recover. If you are in any of these two situations, here is how to solve the issue.
