  • 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!

      OK, which iSpazio URL are you using? I'll try to reproduce this.

      I get that message too. While updating to Cydia 1.1, there was an error. Something timed out - I believe it had something to do with Big Boss. Now I can't install anything from Cydia. I went to update Big Boss, but it gives me the error warning that I am going to be uninstalling Cydia itself. I'd like to unistall Cydia and reinstall it fresh, but not sure how to do that.

      Anyone know how to reinstall Cydia without restoring and rejailbreaking?

      I went to sections/repositories/ISpazio.
      When it opens up, it is 0-3.1.
      Maybe it is an old version?

      The BigBoss source (and sometimes ModMyI too) is just struggling a little bit under the load of so many people -- no need to reinstall Cydia, you can just wait a bit until the demand evens out.

      Works pretty good. Winterboard fixes on the way?

      I just got back in to Cydia and here is the error message I have showing...

      "Failed to fetch http://apt.saurik.com/dists/ios/550....m/Packages.bz2 Hash Sum mismatch

      Failed to fetch http://apt.thebigboss.org/repofiles/...rm/Packages.gz Cached Failure

      Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead"

      I guess it's just a matter of waiting until there's not a million people updating Cydia at the same time?

      Ah yeah, it's better to install from a URL - Cydia 1.1 has shifted away from package-installed sources.

      Ok thanks. Is there somewhere I can go to find new repositories if they come out? I like to keep up with all the new tweaks and stuff.

      Check out the "Multitasking" section of this post - it explains why Cydia can't do that right now but will probably be able to eventually.
