    Thumbs up Cydia being prepared for 3.0, Nothing about Winterboard!


    In the old 1.x days, Installer was the most popular among iPhone users until 2.x came out and they lost the competition to Cydia (forever!) due to the delays. The matter got worse when word got around that Installer was just an advertising machine for RipDev but that's another story...

    It seems that Saurik is not going to take the chance of loosing to some new app. As per his new Twitter status update, he's almost done with porting Cydia to the new OS 3.0 and is already done with making the QuickPwn Bundle as well, which is not going to be released to the masses soon enough. The only part to be completed is the backward compatibility, which should be done soon as well! Another cool thing is that, in comparison to the Icy update for 3.x, Cydia won't replace/ delete any files like the libgcc thus making it a more secure option.

    Status update on 3.x: I finished a Cydia QuickPwn bundle and have been on making the 'Backwards Compatibility' extension fix other packages.
    On the other hand, Winterboard, or I should call it the SummerBoard successor, hasn't had much progress in 3.x. According to Saurik the kernel patches required for Winterboard to work on this new OS aren't yet complete in the unofficial jailbreaks.

    My current understanding of Winterboard on 3.x is that the kernel patches are not all finished in the iPhoneApps.ru jailbreak.
    Winterboard already has a huge database of themes and offers a great modding experience for iPhone which was not possible ever before! All those majority of widgets and themes like the iNav being downloaded by thousands on Cydia have been made possible only because of Winterboard and it would be more of a nightmare for people to loose them. All we can hope for right now is that the 3.0 won't make us loose all that theming capability or there is a chance many won't upgrade be interested in upgrading.

    I'm pretty sure he'll get winterboard working also, hopefully when 3.0 goes live people don't start complaining right out of the box that this and that don't work. But in reality, we know the second it comes out people will be asking why their old apps don't work.

    Give the man some time to get it all working peeps!

    Is there anyway to ban whoever feels the need to post"first". It's annoying.

    What is the use of posting that anyways? Do you feel special for replying first? Do you want a cookie or something?

    Anyways, exciting news. I can't wait to see what improvements Cydia has made along with the improvements of 3.0.

    Wow, nice!
    I hope Saurik could also improve Cydia for 3.0 by including similar features as Icy such as landscape mode and NOT REFRESHING EVERY 5 SECONDS!!!
    Only when needed.

    That would be aweshome!

    I think the site should be automated to change the avatar of anyone who posts "First!" to something really goofy looking.

    I will not update without Winterboard. The stock iPhone look is pretty sad. I will be waiting patiently

    It would be nice if Ripdev could shirk their soiled reputation. I get sick of people dogging them. It gets old.

    I hate Icy ><. It will never amount to Cydia.
    Anyways, WinterBoard better be faster and improved, especially on 3.x as that uses more memory!

    I personally hate cydia. It reloads like 200 times over 200 reloads -_- I think Icy is alot smoother then Cydia also, I just don't understand why MMi Rides the nuts out of Cydia like its really the best thing out smh "until 2.x came out and they lost the competition to Cydia (forever!)" Talk about groupie.... you sound worse then a lil wayne fanatic defending the **** out of cydia

    There speaks someone who knows not of what he talks.

    I Wouldn't let ICY near my iPhone, RipDev have proved they are after your money and I just don't trust them with low level access to my phone.

    I really like icy I think it is a lot better then cydia. The think that more and more apps are charging on cydia and would like to see more free good apps. That is why we want the phone unlocked not just to use different providers. That is my 2 cents

    That pretty much sums it up for me. And I was looking to upgrade my device as well but if Winterboard is not working or is not possible to work with 3.0 (especially on the new devices that are supposed to be released this summer), then no thanks. A lot of the updated features that 3.0 will bring are things that most of us jailbreakers already have now.

    And people ask "With 3.0 coming with everything jailbreaking offers now, what will the need be to jailbreak anymore?", well here is one HUGE one for ya!!

    Icy offers the same apps as cydia.

    Btw winterboard is semi-working on 3.0 from what I've heard. You have to download something winterboard lite...

    Yeah, but it doesn't do anything different from what you could already do now, like changing system images and sounds. You can do that without WB.

    Yeah but WinterBoard is much more safer, it's like the CXMB for the PSP.

    Open SystemVersion.plist (located in /System/Library/CoreServices) in your choice of text editor (I recommend NotePad++), and remove the following lines completely:

    HTML Code:
    <key>ReleaseType</key>
    <string>Beta</string>
    iTunes will no longer reject the device because you're not registered with a developer.

    Recommend this to others if you find it useful.
