  • 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.

      This blows, can't get it to work on my 2G running 3.1.2

      Installed the new one and it was running fine after an iFile install except that it kept wanting to uninstall itself since it was supposed to be running on 4.x

      Went back to the old version, now when I try to install the essential upgrades I get the "man 5 apt.conf" message.

      Guess I'll never be able to use Cydia again.

      It just keeps working great like always. I'm still running the current release version on my 3gs- Cydia 1.0.3222-73. i.e. not the 4.2.1 beta.

      I'm sorry folks are having problems now, but I figured that when the new Cydia was ready for wide release, it would appear as an available Update in Cydia just like Saurik has always done in the past. So sitting tight for now.

      I had same problem with a couple phones I work on. The way I fixed it was to delete everything Curia from a couple of places in the file tree and reinstall cydia manually threw mobile terminal and sdm.

      Anyone else having trouble with Cydia today? It crashes to homescreen upon loading. I've noticed it this morning and it has been like this all day.

      Has anyone who is having problems installing the new cydia tried adding the repo so it does it by itself??? I did and it worked like a charm, just add the repo and voila!! Done

      Cydia 1.0.3366-1 is working perfectly for me so far. I'm running it on an iPhone 4 with OS4.1 and 1.59.00 baseband.

      I don't think I can recall ever seeing such a huge jump in any applications performance. I would sometimes have to wait close to a minute for the repos to load. Now they take a few seconds.

      I got the version 1.0.3366-7 posted earlier and I agree with Andrew. It is so fast now, except for the odd Reloading Data popup at the usual times.

      sometimes it loads them but a lot of times it doesn't.it wont load any packages including the ones installed. it starts installing and the iPod starts rebooting and it crashes all the time, why is it doing this all the sudden?
