Zebra is another Package Manager for jailbroken iOS devices. It is built to support iOS 9 up to iOS 13 and for iPhones and iPads.
Zebra is fully open-source and has been forged with speed. So this has become more efficient. Moreover, Zebra allows you to customize their app with dark mode and custom app management. This is one of the best features in Zebra as the other package managers like Cydia and Sileo does not offer a feature like this.
But what to keep in mind is that Zebra is still not a default Package Manager like Sileo or Cydia. It is said that the Checkra1n team will add Zebra into their checkra1n installer. But still there is no practical clue for this.
