“Have you ever wanted to enjoy your most favorite apps like Youtube & Facebook on CarPlay or Android Auto? If so, do not hesitate to go for NGXPlay/CarBridge”
NGXPlay and CarBridge are two different apps that give you the same results; allowing you to download any app you want there to be on your infotainment system. Here we will talk about what exactly those two apps are, how they work and how you can download and enjoy your most favorite apps on the car screen.
NGXPlay is a tweak for CarPlay that enables you to have third party apps which are not officially available in Apple CarPlay. Yes that means you can use YouTube, Facebook, Safari or Google browser and many more with NGXPlay. Then how to download NGXPlay? Here it is...
As I previously told you, NGXPlay is a tweak which allows us to have any app outside the official CarPlay environment. Since it is to bring you unofficial apps right on to the display of iPhone/iPad, Apple firmware doesn't allow NGXPlay to come into play. Therefore your iPhone's /iPad's firmware needs to be made compatible for NGXPlay. To put it simple, you need to break all the restrictions imposed by Apple. That breaking is called technically, "Jail-breaking"
Now the opportunity of adding all your desired apps to your CarPlay has given for you, with WheelPal app. It provides all the apps, repositories, tools, step guides and instructions and everything to guide you to jailbreak your phone, and to get all the desired apps to CarPlay using NGXPlay.
Download NGXPlay without jailbreak
NGXPlay can only be achieved only if your iPhone/iPad is jailbreakable. About a year ago, jailbreak was only available for iOS 11.3.1. and below. But now you can jailbreak your iPhone/iPad even if it is running on iOS 12. If you have already jailbroken your iPhone/iPad, downloading NGXPlay is just a few taps away. All you need to do is add sources (Repo – BigBoss) through the Cydia app you have on your Home Screen. If not, you may get the assistance of a third party app like TweakMo to jailbreak and download Cydia first. TweakMo is an app that comes with an array of jailbreak apps, tweaks and customization. You can download it in two taps.

However, although we said that having NGXPlay is not possible without jailbreak we would like to let you know of a possible way of getting it. It's the app called "InCar" (Please note that this is not NGXPlay but an alternative way of enjoying almost all the apps) This comes with its own limitations. However the app allows you to experience CarPlay/Android User Interface with larger icons on your mobile phone.
Download NGXPlay for iOS 13
Apple has already heightened its security with iOS 13 betas and iOS 13 Golden Master update. This has inevitably blocked all the possibilities of a jailbreak on iOS 13. Therefore, unfortunately cannot download NGXPlay on iOS 13 until an expert jailbreak hacker would find access root for the iOS firmware.
Carbridge is just another tweak which provides almost the same features as NGXPlay and it also requires a jailbroken iPhone/iPad. For the moment jailbreak is available for the devices running up to 12.4 (no jailbreak yet for iOS 12.3)
Note: Not compatible with unc0ver Jailbreak on iOS 11.4–11.4.1.
Downloading CarBridge can be achieved mainly in two ways. It is either by donating to CarBridge or by downloading via Cydia. If you are interested in getting CarBridge at a few dollars cost, click Donate CarBridge
But if you wanted to get via Cydia.?
Simply follow the below steps
- Grab your jailbreak compatible iPhone/iPad
- Before everything begins, back up the phone Because, if anything happens to your phone during the process, it will lose internal data.
- Next you’ll need to Jailbreak your iPhone. To do this, install Impactor and drag the jailbreak .ipa file to Cydia Impactor.
- Next click on Cydia
- In Cydia install these: -Rocketbootstrap, Applist & Filza
- Perferenceloader - is not there to see in Cydia, so you’ll need to navigate in your source tab ex. Big Boss / System PerferenceLoader
- Install the leftyfl1p.deb file (You’ll need Filza to install this)
- Congratulations. Now you have installed leftyfl1p.deb file and free to use any app on CarPlay
NGXPlay and CarBridge thus bring a whole new experience in CarPlay environment. But not a satisfying news for the ones who have iPhones/iPads running iOS 12.4 and higher. Because still will have to wait until a compatible Cydia emerges.
