iOS 12.1 Cydia Guide
Previous Electra jailbreak tools offered a patched version of Cydia for iOS 11 jailbreak. But later they have developed a Cydia alternative package manager for latest jailbreak tools and named it Sileo.
iOS 12 - iOS 12.1.2 jailbreak tool from Electra team, Chimera jailbreak is the first jailbreak tool to offer iOS 12 Sileo to its users. However, as many users still want to use Cydia on iOS 12 versions this is the way to install iOS 12 Cydia.
Note: You have to jailbreak your iOS 12 - iOS 12.1.2 running devices using the Chimera jailbreak to use Cydia on these versions and to follow the below guide.
Step 1 : Launch Sileo and add below repository to Sources
Step 2 : Refresh Sources to fetch the packages from above repo
Step 3 : Install Cydia Installer from the added repo
Developer Note: “This will remove ‘Cydia Compatibility Package’ which is expected behavior”.
Step 4 : Close Sileo and launch Cydia
Step 5 : Add the chimera repo on Cydia
Step 6 : Search for Sileo (beta) and remove the Sileo (You can install it using the same source whenever you need it)
Important: Do not install Cydia Compatibility Package from the Chimera repo.
That’s it. Use Cydia on iOS 12 - iOS 12.1.2 and enjoy Cydia tweaks.
iOS 12.1.4 - iOS 12.1 Cydia
Official Cydia support has not extended after iOS 10 versions. But users still believe in Saurik to release Cydia download for iOS 12.1 - iOS 12.1.4 and other versions.
Cydia install is an automatic process for many jailbreak tools. Even Electra jailbreak for iOS 11 versions offered a patched version of Cydia install for its users.
As the Unc0ver jailbreak has been updated to work with iOS 12.1 - iOS 12.1.4 versions, Cydia download and install is available for all iOS 12.1 versions now.
You can't install Cydia tweaks to your iPhone unless it's jailbroken. But jailbreak app installation on iOS 12.1, iOS 12.1.1,iOS 12.1.2 iOS 12.1.3 or iOS 12.1.4 is possible as it does not require your device to be jailbroken.
You can make your device unique with Cydia on it. To achieve that, iOS 12.1 jailbreak and iOS 12.1 Cydia will be the way. What about Sileo, the Cydia alternative package manager developed by Electra team?
Sileo for iOS 12.1 - iOS 12.1.4
Sileo will be the Cydia for iOS 11 and higher versions, including iOS 12, iOS 12.1 and other minor versions. The package manager for jailbroken devices developed by Electra jailbreak team.
As we already know, Cydia was not officially updated for iOS 11 and later versions. Even the Cydia available in the Electra jailbreak or Unc0ver jailbreak is a patched version of Cydia and it's not fully compatible with the latest iOS.
Sileo is now available with the Chimera jailbreak for iOS 12 - iOS 12.1.2 versions and, it has proven to be more efficient than Cydia in the testing stages.
Sileo will support iOS 11 and later versions as we have mentioned.

As this exploit has been fixed with the iOS 12.1.1 update, this could lead to jailbreak iOS 12.1
