If you have been jailbreaking for a while now, then you must already know that Cydia is the default package manager for unc0ver and checkra1n jailbreaks and Sileo is the default package manager for Chimera, Odyssey, and Odysseyra1n jailbreaks. But a lot of jailbreakers use an alternative package manager called Zebra on their devices as well.
And if you are looking for a lightweight third-party package manager, then Zebra is a great choice. The only drawback is that it doesn’t show how many installed packages you have on your jailbroken device. Thankfully, we have a lot of jailbreak tweaks available in the community that can resolve this and one such latest tweak to check out is StripeCount by iOS developer Lightmann.
In the screenshots shared in this post, you will see that Zebra package manager is available in both light and dark interface configurations and you will find that this tweak adds an installed package count to the native user interface to display the number of installed packages in Zebra. One of the best things about this package count is that it won’t look out of the place and actually gels well with the existing interface so it would look like a part of the native user interface.
If you are one of those users who tend to install a lot of packages on their pwned handset, then keeping a count of the installed packages is a great way to keep your handset up-to-date and free of useless packages. In fact, it will help you figure out which installed packages aren’t being used by you so that you can uninstall them and improve the performance and the battery life of your handset.
If you wish to give StripeCount a try, then you can download this tweak for free from the BigBoss repository via favorite package manager. This tweak supports jailbroken iOS 12, 13, and 14 devices. But one thing to keep in mind is that this tweak is for Zebra package manager only so, it won’t work with other package manager apps.
Since StripeCount is an open source, you can take a look at the source code on the official Github page of Lightmann.
Are you planning to count the installed packages on your Zebra package manager too? Let us know in the comments why or why not.
