  • 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.

      This may seem cool at first, but reality it is necessary for cydia to refresh when it does. First and foremost when the app launches it is 150% necessary for it to do it. During that time it is checking the packages you already have cached and the ones you have installed. in the next stage you are downloading changes in the Packages file and checking if there are any changes in the Release and so on. Then it will refresh its database once more so that everything is displayed correctly and all changes show up. In simple terms, if you don't do this there will be no changes showing regardless of them existing. This was one of the main problems i had with icy because it naturally did not refresh the sources when the app launched and it relied on cached files. therefore new apps didn't show up and sometimes if any paths had changed to the debs, the download would fail. When adding a source to cydia it is also required for you to refresh on the premise that it has to download THAT specific repo's Packages, and Release. Like i had said before; you need to get those before any of their packages will show. After installing something, you basically are just waiting for cydia to save the fact that you have that installed. so in that instance you will notice it only takes about 5 seconds at the most.

      Reference:

      APT uses a few main files to determine what should be listed in cydia.

      1) Packages - This is basically an index for your .debs and package depictions. It is required that you have a raw version and a compressed/archived version in either gzip or bzip2.

      2) Release - This is the information regarding the source itself. This is required to be also in raw form and an encrypted form using gpg.

      The Way that cydia manages itself is the fastest way known at this time while keeping it functional.

      Well I got it working finally. Great addition. Something that should have been an option from the start.

      this should give Cydia another thumbs up against Rock app. Although i do like the ability to back up a list of apps that were installed.

      i'll still utilize both for now.

      You can get APT backup from Cydia which will save a list of installed Cydia apps along with your itunes backup and will restore everything in one step (without settings tho)

      Rock updates it's own components and applications directly, like Cydia does. Once installed you will find the updates you need, just like Cydia. I'll keep both.

      It now removed from iSpazio repo and modmyi repo has the latest version. Just go to Cydia and Search for NoCyfresh. Its v 1.0.3. People having problems earlier was because the package on iSpazio had wrong permissions. The modmyi package has right permission and will work correctly. Enjoy.

      There was an update to this that said it would remove the package because it was dangerous and actually replaced Cydia. I, like an idiot, did the upgrade and after I left Cydia, my phone was completely unresponsive. Nothing worked except the power button. I could turn on and off, but the screen was unresponsive to anything. I am now stuck on the apple logo and my computer will not recognize the phone. I cannot get into DFU or anything to even attempt a restore.
