    Default Manually install Cydia 1.1.1 with iFile and/or SSH : iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch
    This is covered around the Internet but I decided to make a home for it on ModMyI as well. Actually, other methods I tried didn't work but, by accident, I discovered this method!

    This was 'originally' performed on an iPhone 4: 4.3.2 and a 3G: 3.1.2

    UPDATE: As of 6-28-13, this method still works! I've updated the link below for Cydia 1.1.8

    So here it is...

    Reinstalling Cydia:

    *First step is to get the Cydia 1.1.8 .deb file onto your iDevice. Do this w/ either Safari Download Manager or a SSH Tool (I prefer iPhone Explorer to access the iDevice Filesystem)

    Tools needed:
    Safari Download Manager
    iFile

    1. Get the Cydia 1.1.8 deb file via Safari Download Manager: http://www.mediafire.com/?rw1eimdis7a7wuz

    2. Use iFile and UNARCHIVE the folder

    3. Open the Cydia 1.1.8 Folder and COPY the 'cydia_1.1.8_iphoneos-arm.deb' file

    4. Go to: /var/root/Media and PASTE the cydia deb file here

    5. Now go to: /var/root/Media/Cydia/AutoInstall and PASTE the Cydia deb file here, too.

    ***you might have to create the Cydia and AutoInstall folders. If so, pay attention to the capitalization! You might even need to create the Media folder if it isn't inside the /var/root/ folder***

    6. Go back to the /var/root/Media folder and TAP on the Cydia deb file

    7. INSTALL the Cydia deb file

    8. Now REBOOT your phone.

    9. You should now have Cydia!

    What's the point in this? I mean if you have iFile you obviously already have Cydia?

    The point was to install a newer version of cydia that cydia itself was not giving as a regular update. This is pretty old now though. Not needed.

    DAMN, it ALMOST worked at least I got the page to open up. Before I would click on it and it looked like it was about to open then nothing. At least I got to the page where it ask you who are you USER/HACKER/DEVEOLPER but I tap on user hit done goes to loading page then crashes. CAN YOU PLEASE HELP ME, I REALLY don't want to re-jailbreak

    No real need for it. Depending on your device and firmware cydia will give you the appropriate version needed.

    I made the assumption that this person has a 1.1.4 .deb file BUT I'm curious if the install process has changed since I made this topic so long ago. Can anyone confirm???

    1. Get the Cydia 1.1.1 deb file via Safari Download Manager: Multiupload.com - upload your files to multiple file hosting sites!

    2. Use iFile and UNARCHIVE the folder

    3. Open the Cydia 1.1.1 Folder and COPY the 'cydia_1.1.1_iphoneos-arm.deb' file

    4. Go to: /var/root/Media and PASTE the cydia deb file here

    Man it's Works perfectly with My Ipad 2 Run Ios 6.0.1, but the Cydia .Deb file was to old, so i downloaded the cydia 1.1.8 and do all step the above lol. Thanks man you save my life, from King the hell.

    It could be someone decided to install CyDelete and delete cydia
    Then all of a sudden they realise how badly they still needed it
