We have been eagerly waiting for Jay Freeman aka saurik to release Cydia, which is currently not compatible with iOS 11 ever since Jonathan Levin aka Morpheus_ released LiberiOS jailbreak, the first jailbreak for iOS 11 and iPhone X.
ModMy announced a few days back that it is archiving its ModyMyi repository on Cydia, the unofficial App Store for jailbroken iPhones, iPads and iPod Touches. ModyMyi has been one of the default repositories on Cydia, which allowed jailbreak app, tweak, and theme developers to host their packages.
Jailbreaking your iPhone opens the door to endless customizations which is quite exciting. Users who jailbreak their iOS devices often end up installing a bunch of jailbreak tweaks to customize their device and add new features to it.
When you open Cydia, it refreshes all the added repositories to fetch the new packages that have been added since your last visit. A common issue that most users face is that some repositories take a very long time to refresh.
While the Yalu jailbreak for iOS 10 – iOS 10.2 has been out for quite some time, users have been unable to purchase any tweaks from Cydia. This is usually the case with a new jailbreak. Purchases are disabled to prevent users from buying incompatible packages that could create issues.
Users who’ve jailbroken their iOS 10.1.x devices using the Yalu jailbreak have been facing a number of issues with Cydia. A common problem is Cydia crashing when attempting to respring after a tweak finishes installing.
Saurik has rolled out a new update for Cydia Substrate for jailbroken iOS devices, taking it to version 0.9.6301.
The latest update fixes a bug that could create issues on devices running iOS 6. As explained by Saurik, the bug stops Cydia from injecting in iOS 6, which could cause problems with the proper functionality of jailbreak tweaks.
Just a few days ago, we reviewed an upcoming jailbreak tweak called Reflectrix that brings Top Charts and Featured Tweaks section to Cydia. It was in closed beta and available to invited users only, but the developer has now opened it to the public for testing.
Ever since Cydia was updated to run as “mobile” rather than “root”, many developers took the opportunity to create amazing tweaks that brought new features to Cydia and improved its design. Now an upcoming jailbreak tweak that is in closed beta promises to add Top Charts along with Featured Tweaks section to Cydia.
In the past couple of weeks, Saurik has been hard at work to improvise Cydia and provide a better experience to users. Recently, Cydia Substrate received an important update to fix the stashing issue that prevented Cydia packages from getting installed successfully.
