  • EDIT: Cydia 1.1.2 Has NOT Released
    This article is no longer relevant. This is not a release and was clarified by saurik.

    I apologize for the inconvenience and mis-leading factor of this article. It was not my intention and has been fixed. Please spread this news if anyone is in confusion. One disclaimer:
    Releases for Cydia will come through the "Changes" log. Anything that you find different on the apt server is either for other purposes or something that is not ready. DO NOT use them unless noted otherwise.

      My little brain can't see any change except the version number but it still makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

      Thanks for the heads up!

      To install:

      Get the .deb.

      SSH into the phone.

      Place the .deb in /tmp

      In the mobile terminal, or your Mac's terminal enter:

      dpkg -i /tmp/cydia_1.1.2_iphoneos-arm.deb

      killall SpringBoard

      Launch Cydia and you'll see the version at the bottom of the main page.

      lol use installer not unarchive/zip viewer. make sure cydia isn't open or else it won't work.

      A few differences in the search functions and such have been noticed (including myself).

      There is no changelog provided and I'm unsure if this release will be done through Cydia or not.

      Downloaded and updated. Works fine. Don't really see anything new on the surface, although most likely what is new isn't in the graphics.

      Glad to see Saurik jumped in to provide a dose of common sense on this update.
