  • BTW - This New Cydia is FAST and Awesome


    So you've probably heard there is a new version of Cydia, which is included in the recent tethered jailbreak redsn0w release. We've been testing it and chatting with chpwn and saurik about the differences in it, and thought we'd get a solid list of changes published.

    chpwn did a lot of work on many visual tweaks, and as saurik put it "some of my long term performance plans are 'hitting pay dirt', and Cydia is much faster than it was before; that said, it isn't done yet: there's one more thing that I think is going to make a huge difference that isn't even in there yet but should be for the final release." And that's the biggest improvement as far as many are concerned - it's just way faster. Loading the Changes tab in my iPhone 4 is now nearly as quick as the AppStore.

    Here's a list of just some of the improvements:
    • reduced loading changes time
    • section remapping optimizations
    • faster reloading data
    • faster, native search
    • uses public SDK classes whenever possible
    • rewritten, faster web views with zooming support
    • changes badge works again
    • more stable webviews (no crashes when queueing)
    • redesigned settings page
    • redesigned stashing page
    • faster scrolling of table views
    • bug fixes
    • ads no longer break the package views until restart
    • much better queueing UI
    • stabler refreshing bar
    iPad improvements:
    • - landscape
    • - popovesr
    • - modal views that cover only a portion of the screen
    • - less annoying errors with bad internet connections downloading packages
    • - updated section mappings, less typo'd sections

    A QUICK NOTE - THIS VERSION OF CYDIA IS NOT QUITE READY FOR ALL 3.X USERS, SO ONLY INSTALL IT IF YOU'RE ON 4.X.

    This version of Cydia is included in the recent redsn0w release, but if you're on an iPhone 4 or other already jailbroken device, you can actually install it straight from your iDevice. The absolute easiest way to do so is make sure you have iFile and Safari Download Manager installed, then visit http://apt.saurik.com/cydia/debs/cyd...honeos-arm.deb from your device. Remember where you download it to, and navigate there with iFile afterwards. Tap the deb it and choose install - done!

    Cydia is growing up so fast.

      SSH into your phone, go to var/root/media/Cydia/AutoInstall (if you don't have the Cydia folder or AutoIntall folder create them, they're name is case sensitive). Drop the .deb file into AutoInstall, reboot phone.

      So I'm still on the old cydia. iPhone 3GS 4.1 and the new 6.15.0 baseband, jailbroken and unlocked. Can I connect to redsn0w and install just cydia over my current one or will that screw something up

      I think I found a bug! In Manage, Packages, Cydia will crash if you have a package from uknown source or local install, like self installed debs.

      If you have the baseband of 6.15.0 you must have just used redsn0w or pwnage, you have the new Cydia then.

      There have been a few that have had this issue. Not sure if having the debs there is the problem for certain, more people posting will tell the story.
      Most have just removed the new install of the Cydia deb, and re-installed and it seemed to cure the crash issue.

      I am not certain about that, most have already moved up to the ios4, so I don't know if it will be compatable with your 3.1.3 firmware.
      Perhaps someone will post your answer, sorry.

      I got this last week when I first caught wind of it on IRC and I was amazed it works this well! Makes Cydia seem almost "native". I swear the AppStore almost has more of a lag than Cydia now (on my slow internet anyway)
