  • 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.

      I don't have a media folder in root, and so certainly not Cydia and autoinstall. Do I just create these directories? Thank you.

      Then I would go ahead with the install. It isn't going to hurt anything if you over write a file if it is there. I say go for it.

      I got a problem.
      When I install this new Cydia it wants to remove the following.
      Cydia Installer
      Essential
      PyObjC
      Python
      AppBackup
      Setup Tools
      UICaboodle.py

      But if I install the older version of Cydia everything is fine and nothing wants to be removed.

      How do I get Cydia to stop removing itself?

      I just checked - redsn0w beta 4 already was installing this version. I don't know if that's because I have an iPhone 4 on 4.2.1, but my cydia version is the same as the one posted.

      Anyone's new cydia crashing when you are managing your packages? When I scroll down to "L" it crashes every time. I've rebooted a few times and still doing it. A bit frustrating....
