Install Cydia the easy way on your jailbroken iOS 8 — iOS 8.1 device with the Pangu app


The Pangu team will be updating their desktop jailbreak app with Cydia tomorrow, but they’ve already made Cydia available for download via the Pangu iOS app, that is installed on all jailbroken iOS 8 — iOS 8.1 devices.

While saurik updated Cydia for iOS 8 — 8.1 soon after the Pangu jailbreak was released, the install process was quite tedious, requiring you to SSH into your device, and run a few terminal commands. With the Pangu app, it’s as simple as installing any other package from Cydia.

Just open the Pangu app, tap on the Install Cydia banner, and tap on install.

So if you had held off jailbreaking your iOS device because of the involved process to install Cydia, now’s a good time to jailbreak.
