  • 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!

      I updated and I like how fast it is but now my iPod Touch has "Searching..." in the top left corner where "iPod" should be.

      I'm suddenly getting "hash sum mismatch" error when trying to update. Wonder why? I've changed nothing in Cydia, no new repos, and didn't have this error updating other tweaks etc yesterday....dang.

      If you got a "hash sum mismatch" error, try again - should be working better now.

      "Note: installing Cydia 1.1 removes older default packages. This is normal: repositories are managed differently, and will not be deleted. ;P"

      Everyone getting the hash sum error:

      "If you are one of a few users that got a Hash Sum Mismatch while downloading Cydia 1.1, I have worked this issue out with my CDN: try again?"
