  • Cydia 1.1 - The New And Improved


    Cydia 1.1 is finally upon us and it’s packed with AWESOME! An update which has been discussed for months, and a topic that users have thought about almost every day. Not only are there a ton of new features bundled inside, but we also get UI updates, speed increases and an improved search function. This update adds even more functionality behind the scenes, which will allow Saurik to provide even more updates to Cydia, quicker and easier than ever before.

    Saurik just announced it's release via Twitter, saying:

    Cydia 1.1: faster, slimmer, and more stable; including an improved search algorithm and "resume where you left off". Available in Cydia now!
    While I don’t have an official list of new features and all the updates to the new Cydia 1.1, I’ll try to cover as many as I can.

    First and foremost, the new Cydia is fast! I mean REAL FAST! Seriously, this thing flies now! Web Content is now “appcached” which allows content to load much quicker. Even the homepage pop’s into place almost instantly now. Behind the scenes, Cydia continues to check for updates and even downloads them in the background, all while refreshing any new content that has been updated.

    The UI has been updated slightly, in a very clean manner, which makes things seem much more fluid and snappy. The searching mechanism in Cydia has been updated to allow for faster searching, and smoother interaction with the enormous repositories.



    We’ve had a ton of new languages added to Cydia as well, making it even more universal than ever before. This includes Greek, Chinese, German, Dutch & Spanish languages.

    This release is live and in Cydia now. Don’t forget to thank Saurik for all his hard work, as well as the rest of the team. This is a ton of work they have put into this and it’s just the beginning of something even more AWESOME!

      Slower than before.

      iPhone 3G, 4.2.1 - I know I'm running an older device - not ********, just giving feedback. Could be due to the amount of traffic. Bunch of weird little quirks most have already pointed out.

      open up mobile terminal and run su then alpine or whatever ur root password is then type apt-get update as some of the sources get messed up a little just delete the ones that have problems and run pkg manager or upload them again! Worked for me .

      I don't think he/she was trying to put it down. I think he/she was trying to applaud Cydia for being so good that it rarely needed updates.

      Can't just uninstall Cydia...unfortunately. Can't even rejailbreak(Cydia would already be present, you would be unable to add Cydia) unless you restore to your current firmware(you know...the one that is presently jailbreakable) after it's freshly restored, jailbreak again :]

      Farking hell after I upgrade my original biteSMS to v5.2 which I had bought from bigboss in cydia then it ask me to restart springboard so I press it but who know it go into safe mode again. After that I press restart in safe mode then it bootup. But who know my iPhone suddenly freeze at the settings page and no matter what button I press also no response. So I got no choice but do a hard reboot by pressing both the power and the home button. It boot up with the stupid apple logo and after that it show my DARKSTAR bootlogo and it just stuck there for almost 5mins. I thought this time die already cannot boot again but who know it bootup must be damm Lucky. I swear to god I will never ever go into cydia and do any upgrade again in my entire life. I never had this kind of problem with my previous cydia 1.0.3366.1. Stupid cydia 1.1.1 cause so many farking problem

      You need an app called Mobile Terminal that's found in Cydia. Unfortunately, the Cydia version of MT doesn't work on ios4 so you'll have to google 'mobile terminal ios4' to find out how to get it.

      Do that first then we can tell u what to do next.
