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.
To address these issues, Saurik has now released the third beta of Cydia labelled as version 1.1.28. The latest build fixes an issue that was available in the first beta. Package descriptions that were written in non-English characters would show up as ?’s, therefore this release fixes the issue and properly displays non-English characters.
This is the only fix that the latest beta brings to Cydia, but it is also an indication that Saurik is working to fix all the known issues. He has mentioned several times that he is aware of all the Cydia issues that users have been facing and is working to fix them.
Although I strongly recommend that users avoid using the current Yalu jailbreak for iOS 10.1.x, if you have already used it to jailbreak your device then make sure to install the latest build of Cydia. You can do so by following the guide below.
How to Install Cydia 1.1.28 Beta
Step 1: Open the Cydia app on your jailbroken device.
Step 2: Go to the Sources tab. Tap on Edit -> Add and type in the following URL: http://apt.saurik.com/beta/cydia-arm64/ . Then press the Add button to add the repo to Cydia.
Step 3: Once the new source has been added and Cydia refreshes, you should see three new available upgrades in the Changes tab. These are labelled as “Cydia Installer”, “Debian Package” and “Tape Archive”.
Step 4: Tap on the Upgrade button in the top right corner of the Changes tab and install the available upgrades. Once the installation is done, respring your device.
The latest build of Cydia should now be installed on your device. Rest assured, we will see more Cydia updates in the coming weeks to iron out all the known issues and provide a smoother jailbreak experience.
