Saurik has rolled out an update to Cydia Substrate, bringing the package to version 0.9.6200. The latest update fixes the Cydia stashing issue which prevented many users from installing packages and tweaks onto their device.
When attempting to install tweaks, users were faced with an error that said “failed in buffer_write(fd) (8, ret=-1)”. The reason for this error is that Cydia is using the system partition to install the tweaks on but since the storage is limited and not enough, the installation is terminated with the aforementioned error.
Therefore, it is important to stash tweaks and packages over to the data partition, which has far more space, allowing more tweaks to be installed. Well-known developer Coolstar released a package recently called “Stashing for iOS 9.2 – 9.3.3” to address this issue by stashing your tweaks so they get installed to the data, rather than system partition.
Saurik’s latest update to Cydia Substrate brings a similar fix by stashing the “installation target of extensions”. In addition to other fixes, the “volume up to disable” feature has also been modified to work correctly on devices running iOS 9.2 and above. After the device boots up, you can hold down the volume up button while using the Pangu jailbreak app to disable Substrate.
If you have already jailbroken your device, it’s important to update Cydia Substrate right now to prevent package installation issues. You can perform the update by going to Cydia, open the Changes tab and tap on Refresh button in top right corner. Once the sources have been refreshed, you should see Cydia Substrate under ‘Available Upgrades’. Open the package and update it.
If you have Coolstar’s “Stashing for iOS 9.2 – 9.3.3” package installed, it’s safe to remove it after you’ve updated Cydia Substrate.
