  • NoCyfresh Toggle for SBSettings - Disable Cydia Auto-Refresh


    UPDATE: At ModMyi's discretion, we have decided that this package is unsafe as it replaces Cydia entirely. We have released an update to the package that allows you to remove this package. This is NOT released by the developer, this update is from ModMyi. You can still use this tweak at your own discretion, however we take no responsibility you run into problems with it.

    One of the biggest pet peeves I have with Cydia is the constant refreshing that takes place. Not only does the app want to refresh after opening, it seems to also want to do a full refresh every time you add a source, or install a new app.

    On my 3G, I probably spend over a minute just waiting to launch Cydia for the first time. Let alone the additional wait time if I am adding a source or new app.

    Now, I'm sure this auto-refreshing is there for a good reason. However, sometimes It's just not necessary to do a full refresh. Until now, I had always wished there was a way to toggle this on and off.

    Well now there is. iSpazio has released a toggle for SBSettings that will enable or disable the Auto-Refreshing performed in Cydia. This speeds up Cydia ten fold.

    I anticipate lots of these little things will be address in the newest cydia update by @saurik, but in the meantime, those who want a little speed boost will take full advantage of this toggle.

    Another win for the Jailbreak community!

    Ok submitted an update to modmyi this should help people having issues with the refresh still happening even though the toggle is on. Also the icons have been updated to be more clear.

      The Cydia app will still require to reload data, however the auto-refresh we see when it first opens us should not be happening when you toggle on NoCyfresh.

      There is other instances when it auto-refreshes but for the most part, you should notice that it doesnt refresh upon first launch. It will still need to load data though.

      Oh I know what it's supposed to do. It loads data and then refreshes on first launch whether the toggle is on or not.

      I tried the Rock app, but after dealing with so many bugs, I went back to Cydia.

      Perhaps in another year?

      No dice. Still loads upon cydia launch. Is it supposed to cut down the amount of reloads or stop the auto-refresh completely? Glad to see I'm not the only one its not working for...

      This should have been a native feature of Cydia to be honest. I never understood why.

      I don't understand why the refresh takes so long for people. My wait time is short and not a hassle.
