  • Cydia Gets Updated to Version 1.1.3

    Cydia has been updated with the new jailbreak.

    This morning voices around the world cheered as hacker pod2g whipped up an untethered jailbreak for all A4 devices and older running iOS 5.0.1. The untethered jailbreak was released in two forms - one of which was the new redsn0w 0.9.10b1 and the other was the Cydia package known as Corona that could be installed while you had the tethered jailbreak to untether your iDevice. As most probably simply restored the device to start fresh with a new jailbreak - you probably noticed something different at the bottom of Cydia, or you may not have, and that would be that it has been updated from version 1.1.1 to version 1.1.3.

    Cydia, by Jay Freeman (Saurik), is likely the greatest single solitary thing about jailbreaking. It's a powerful application installer engine and an online store that holds a huge library of jailbreak developer creations. Some are free and some are paid but in the end they all serve one purpose and that's to make your iDevice do things that you know Apple would never permit you to do. With Cydia being updated today, you are probably wondering what's different. After all, the interface looks exactly the same and nothing appears to have changed.

    The changes in Cydia version 1.1.3 have to do with internal fixes. With no change-log available for public viewing, nothing huge was introduced in the Cydia 1.1.3 update. There were some minor changes including iOS 5 stability and better error reporting (as told to us by Saurik). From first judgement, it feels a little more fluid and quicker at loading things. Of course, with a new jailbreak, updating Cydia to work with it is always necessary.

    If you used the Corona patch to get the iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak then you will be able to download the Cydia version 1.1.3 update from the changes tab - it will pop up as an essential update. If you went the route that I did and you completely restored the device to start from a clean slate, then you will have noticed that Cydia was installed as the updated version automatically - you won't need to apply any updates or changes to it.

    Have you noticed anything different in the new Cydia? Share in the comments.

    NOTE: Sources are failing right now because of the amount of traffic updating to the iOS 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak. Give it a day or two and they will be up and running again. The repository servers are being slammed just like Apple's servers were when iOS 5 was launched.

    EDIT: Article updated with reasons for the Cydia update.

      What!? Corona!? I never knew about that! I just restored my iPhone because it wasn't booting right with the untethered jailbreak running over the tethered! Oh well. At least I get a fresh start.......again.

      Would LOVE to know how to manually install pincrush, since BigBoss's repo will not load and myrepospace/cydia.be doesn't have pincrush on their repos any more. I have the pincrush.exe download off ModMyI's desktop repo, but have no idea where to dump it into my phone?

      .exe is for Windows PCs. The file you're looking for should be in .deb format. If you google pincrush deb, you should be able to find it. Then you can SSH in and put it in /var/root/Media/Cydia/AutoInstall, creating the Cydia and AutoInstall folders if they don't exist. Reboot and it'll be installed.

      I'm on 4.3.3 like others. I did the "complete upgrade" now my iPhone 4 is all over the shot. Can't use iFile - it crashes!
      Get it sorted!

      I'm having that problem with iFile too. I worked out that you need to turn on airplane mode for it to work.

      Edit: This happened to me a few days before the untether, when an iFile update was released, so it must be a bug in the app itself.

      You can find Pincrush in this repo http://cydia.myrepospace.com/enigma3gs/ just add it to Cydia.

      Can't complain after walking around on eggshells with the untethered version for months. Had to cancel the jailbreak, and restart because it got stuck. Then had to respring and reboot a few times to get back MOST of my Cydia apps. Then had to redo things like tweeks and SB settings. All is fine now.

      what are you complaining about? at least you have a jailbreak

      us 4s users are still with our thumbs up our bum if you know what I mean. God knows how long we have to wait for a JB

      I get this random issue, when I turn off then reboot, it gets sent into a respring loop. if I hold home and power for 10 secs, then boot up again, it works just fine. I'm running a corona over a tethered jb on my i4. not complaining, just informing . oh and if anyone has a fix, I'd love to hear about it

      Do you have the semi-tether installed?

      I'm getting "POSIXperation timed out" on Cydia. I think 2 of the sources are down. Either wait for it to be fixed or remove those sources.

I plugged my phone about 2 days ago so it's not a huge loss if I have to force a restore but there are a couple of pictures on it. Can anyone help?
      Try downloading the app "box". An free photo album uploaded thing should be one of the first to come up. Sign up for the free account and upload your photos. Then when you jailbreak IOS 5.0.1 just download box and then put the photos back on your device.
      Or you could email the photos to yourself.

      anyone else notice that after you install the untethered jailbreak that ibooks is back to not working again? You open it and an error message keeps popping up saying something about the iPhone's configuration and to either restore or redownload ibooks with the last one never working.
