  • Cydia 1.1.9 Brings an iOS 7 Visual Overhaul


    Early Christmas Eve, saurik released version 1.1.9 of Cydia, which gets Cydia fully working on iOS 2-7. Although under the hood it's seen changes to run smoothly on iOS 7, the most obvious update is Cydia's visual change to iOS 7's style.



    The visual overhaul receives a thank you from saurik to a few people: Surenix for the new tab bar icons, myself for the UI images (icons!), and Ryan Petrich for general UIKit help. And to Optimo for late night testing.




    Not all aspects of Cydia are fully skinned to the iOS 7 style; these minor areas will be addressed in further updates. At this point, saurik wanted to make sure the updated client was released so work could focus on Mobile Substrate.





    We sure have come a long way since February 2008, when Cydia was released as an alternative package manager to Installer.





    Merry Christmas indeed!

Heck I'd rather see all the jb developers take a break and enjoy the holidays....but that's just me
      You've clearly missed the point...imagine your parents promised you a car all year long and on Christmas morning you find a "Hot Wheels" under the tree. I am not ungrateful, just seriously disappointed.

Wasn't ready for the JB, still don't have a new MS, but look at the all the pretty colors and new icons that add absolutely nothing to usefulness or functionality of the program
      Oh and the app was updated so it can handle purchases on iOS 7 devices. That's just a little something he threw in there too.

      This is what I'm waiting for my self. Activator is one of my favorite tools and it don't work.

      Have anyone the same problem with the modmyi repo. When it. is loading at the end comes an error Message.
      Also when i will reinstall an older theme like timeless Hd Thren an error Message appears.

      Who does the mobile sub

      Is it Saurik that does that job ?

      Yes it's saurik...give him a break...like has been said..he had no idea that was gonna happen n he busted his *** to get Cydia somewhat done...now he can work on MS... Then other devs can update their apps...I don't suspect many things to be updated till after the first... I think they need time with family n friends for holidays! Kudos to devs n Merry Christmas!!

      I am sadly still having this problem. I am currently running it on an iPod 5th Generation with iOS 7.0.4

      In his defense, we don't jailbreak our phones and iPads to just "look" at Cydia.

      More like you were promised a car and then when you got it the stereo wasn't upgraded yet, but they promised it would be within the week. It's still the full car, just doesn't have all the compatibility yet with tweaks updated, etc.

      This probably is fixed if it was a server error. More details (the actual error) would be nice.

      Can someone please tell me why cydia keeps making the App Store open with some crap game when I browse tweaks and I don't tap on adds and it's getting very annoying now.

      Are you looking at tweaks hosted by BigBoss by chance, if so its to do with their Ad source which isn't playing nice at the moment

      Yeah big boss it's driving me mad, it also won't show the description of the tweaks but it's nice they are starting to be added.
