Sideloading Deb Files without a Jailbreak

Required Programs: (Click the name to download)Xcode - Mac App Store iOS App Signer - Google Drive

Compatibility (Comment your results):

Incompatible: Cydia, Winterboard (loads, but doesn't function), iCleaner (use xCleaner), Activator,
Compatible: Kodi, Flux, Provenance, NDS4iOS, GBA4iOS 2.0, Happy Chick, Moviebox, MAME4iOS, iTransmission, xCleaner, iDos, iSSB, AppFlix, Jungle Video Downloader, etc.
Semi-compatible: Filza, Retroarch (incomplete filesystem access), Flex (patches don't work)

You can only sideload deb files that are applications, not tweaks. As of now, the applications side loaded have to work within the iOS sandbox, so apps like Kodi, Filza, and Retroarch work, but cannot navigate the entire filesystem like on a jailbroken device. The usefulness is limited


OS X - Enabling TRIM on Non-Apple

Enable TRIM for Non-Apple SSDs TRIM is similar to defragmenting a hard drive, and Apple does not enable this by default in 3rd party SSDs. It is not clear why they do not, but probably because they would rather have you use theirs. In any case, if you would like to keep your SSD healthy, all you have to do is use Terminal with a command.
1. Open Terminal and copy and paste this into it:
sudo trimforce enable
2. Hit enter, and follow the prompts by pressing Y and enter each time.
3. It will reboot automatically, and you should be done!
It is that simple. Leave a comment if you have any questions!

Enable HiDPI Resolutions on macOS

Enabling HiDPI resolutions allows your display to run at full resolution but render the images at a smaller one. In a sense, it works like the Retina displays by scaling windows and programs to appear larger than normal. It is essentially the same as the scaling option in Windows, and it default in OS X Retina Displays. If you happen to 1440p or 4K screen, this can come in handy. This works at any resolution, but isn't useful below those resolutions.
