The Pangu team today released a jailbreak for all devices running iOS 8 and iOS 8.1 devices. There was just one thing missing in the jailbreak — Cydia.
We are hearing unconfirmed reports on Reddit and elsewhere this afternoon that suggest the default BigBoss repository on Cydia may have been hacked, including all paid and free packages. It appears that Cydia creator Jay Freeman’s article on “Competition vs. Community” was the motivation behind the database leak.
The team behind iMods, an upcoming jailbreak store for iPhone and iPad, has posted an open response to Cydia creator Saurik’s article on “Competition vs. Community” from a few days ago. The response elaborates on how iMods is attempting to capture a different demographic than existing Cydia users, by targeting those that would not normally jailbreak their device.
Cydia 1.1.10 released with New features, Reorganized UI, bug fixes and an iOS 7-styled icon [Updatedx2: v1.1.12 released to fix bugs]
Tweaks are continuously being released in the jailbreak community, meaning there’s almost always something new worth finding when you open up Cydia and refresh your sources. Sometimes, exciting “big name” tweaks such as Auxo 2 are released, while other times, you might find some smaller tweaks that are equally as interesting. Here’s a roundup of some smaller tweaks that have been released recently.
