Hi everyone !

As a proper Cydia repo for RetroArch, PPSSPP, Provenance and other emulators seem to have long been missing, I decided to take on the task to create and maintain one...

iOS Emulators repo :

You can add my repo to Cydia by clicking this link on a jailbroken device, or by adding this source to Cydia : http://johan.margueritte.free.fr/repo (or Sileo...)

For Sileo users, you can just click this link on your jailbroken device...

iOS Emulators for non-jailbroken users :

You can use my website to get the .ipa versions, to sign with Cydia Impactor if you're not jailbroken...
Thank you for the post Smile
Just checked - you have there BasiliskII and Mini vMac so I'll be using your resources from now on Smile

Thanks,
have a nice weed
Hello! If it’s not too much trouble, could you look into your non-jailbreak ipa version of Mini vMac for use with AltStore? (https://altstore.io/) If you haven’t heard, it is a utility in the form of an iPhone app and a companion service running on a local computer that lets you self-sign and install ipas from your phone, and it even refreshes them periodically so that they don’t expire.

The beta version of AltStore allows you to try sideloading any ipa you have. I’ve done this successfully with other apps, but Mini vMac gives me an error about the provisioning profile not matching. Thanks.
@Cralex Hi! I didn't test AltStore at all, I may do so if it's still not working for you...

I think it may be related to the fact that "Mini vMac" has a space in the executable name...

Can you try to:

- Extract the .ipa (rename to .zip if you want)
- (Maybe) Rename the "Mini vMac.app" folder to remove the space
- Rename the "Mini vMac" executable to remove the space
- Edit the "info.plist" file to change the executable name to remove the space too
- Zip the Payload folder and rename the resulting file to "MinivMac.ipa"

Hope it works for you!

(If not, I will look into it...)
If you installed the latest checkra1n jailbreak (https://checkra.in/), RetroArch, PPSSPP and some other emulators on my repo will show only a black screen…
A required permissions setting for Unc0ver and Electra compatibility set for the executable is the culprit!

I may have to make a separate version for Checkra1n, but in the meantime, you would need to remove the “define UID” and “define GID” sticky permission bits with Filza (or chmod -s) on the executable of the affected emulators in /Applications/(emuname).app/(execname)…
