YouTube is one of the best and most popular video-sharing platforms available on the web. It features a range of videos from tech reviews to funny pranks, gaming content, and daily vlogs by popular influencers. YouTube also offers an app for iOS which provides a seamless and enjoyable experience watching videos on your iPhone.

Unfortunately, the YouTube app lacks a lot of essential features. To bridge this gap, Cercube is a third-party app for YouTube that brings tons of amazing new features and functionality. It allows you to keep videos playing in the background, customize the app's interface, and much more.

The best part of this tweak is that it's built right into the YouTube app thereby allowing you to use Cercube's features directly from YouTube.

How to Install Cercube?

1. Install Cercube on Non-Jailbroken Device

If your device is not jailbroken, you can install Cercube on iPhone and other iOS devices by downloading its IPA from this page and sideloading using AltStore or a similar tool.

  1. Download and install AltStore on your computer. You can read the full guide here for instructors on how to install AltStore.
  2. Open Safari on your iOS device, visit this page, and download the Cercube IPA. The download link is available at the top of the page, labeled as "Download IPA".
  3. Once the Cercube IPA is downloaded, open AltStore on your device and go to the My Apps tab.
  4. Press the + icon in the top left corner to install a new app. You’ll see a list of all the IPA files that you've downloaded with Safari. Tap on the Cercube IPA that you downloaded earlier.
    • Note: if it’s your first time using AltStore, you’ll be prompted to enter your Apple ID and password. This is sent to Apple to generate a signing certificate to install the app.
  5. AltStore will begin installing the app and the process takes a couple of minutes to finish. Once it’s installed, it will appear on the My Apps page and you can open it from there or from the Home screen.
    • If you keep on getting an error that the AltStore server is not found, you can simply re-install AltStore or connect it to your computer using a cable and then install Cercube.

This is the entire process for downloading and installing Cercube on iPhone, iPad, or iPod that isn't jailbroken. Keep in mind that apps installed using this method last for 7 days and you can easily resign them from your device by going to the “My Apps” page in AltStore, then tap the “X days” button next to the app to re-sign it for another 7 days.

2. Installing Cercube on Jailbroken Device

If your device is jailbroken, then you can easily install Cercube using Cydia. Here's the entire process:

  1. On your iOS device, open Cydia and head to the Sources tab.
  2. Press the Edit button at the top and then choose Add.
  3. Now input the following package source: https://apt.alfhaily.me
  4. Once you add the new source, refresh Cydia so all the new packages from this source load successfully. Once done, go the Search tab, search for Cercube, and then install it.

This is how you can install Cercube on a jailbroken iPhone. The process is very simple and straightforward.

Cercube Repo for Cydia

If you want to install Cercube on your jailbroken device, then you have to add its source to Cydia. The source is as follows:

You can add this repo by going to the Sources tab of Cydia and adding it from there.
