    Default Cydia & iOS 4.2 Compatibility: Progress Report




    With all the talk about iOS 4.2 GM being released, many jailbreak users were beginning to fear a long delay for any 4.2 Jailbreak Tools, due to Cydia being incompatible with the latest, soon to be released, 4.2 Firmware.

    However, MuslceNerd has just tweeted a screenshot and states "Both @chpwn and @saurik have been burning the midnight oil prepping for updated version of Cydia http://is.gd/gJSa2". This should give some hope for users who were concerned about jailbrekaing iOS 4.2. It appears that it may be ready in time for the official release.

    Of course, no official updates or change notes have been release by Chpwn or Saurik, so all we can do is wait and enjoy this screenshot that teases a new dialog screen for choosing what type of user you are.

    I look forward to seeing the updates, and am excited to see how the UI has changed.

    OK so not really much of a progress report, but still a report nonetheless...

    So, does this mean Cydia will support multitasking soon? I hate how if I hit the home button by mistake or Cydia crashes, I have to wait for it to reload again...

    Cydia will probably never support multi-tasking due to the fact that some things need to be respringed, or restarted in order to make sure your phone doesn't brick itself.

    It is possible some sort of multitasking may be incorporated, like when you are browsing, but only Chpwn and Saurik will know those answers.

    nope. the devs have explained that its not safe for cydia because while youre outside the app you could be changing things in the system that affect cydia packages

    It is time for Modmyi to host a "Theme Cydia" contest. That app needs some serious help.

    It won't support multitasking. There is a package you can install to prevent Cydia from reloading. NoCyfresh I think.

    Thanks for the replies, that makes perfect sense .


    I'm still debating on whether or not to update to 4.2, I really want to, but I also don't want to, because I would have to set up everything...AGAIN.

    If you're on an iPhone stay at 4.1. If you're on an iPad then it's worth the update.

    I'm on an iPod Touch so unlocking isn't an issue for me. (if unlocking was your reasoning for not upgrading the phone)

    Yup that too......and we get a cool new baseband to go along with it.

    The baseband is the coolest of the upgrades. Apple claims the new baseband will make ur battery life better? WTF, i have no clue.
