    Default BTW - This New Cydia is FAST and Awesome


    So you've probably heard there is a new version of Cydia, which is included in the recent tethered jailbreak redsn0w release. We've been testing it and chatting with chpwn and saurik about the differences in it, and thought we'd get a solid list of changes published.

    chpwn did a lot of work on many visual tweaks, and as saurik put it "some of my long term performance plans are 'hitting pay dirt', and Cydia is much faster than it was before; that said, it isn't done yet: there's one more thing that I think is going to make a huge difference that isn't even in there yet but should be for the final release." And that's the biggest improvement as far as many are concerned - it's just way faster. Loading the Changes tab in my iPhone 4 is now nearly as quick as the AppStore.

    Here's a list of just some of the improvements:
    • reduced loading changes time
    • section remapping optimizations
    • faster reloading data
    • faster, native search
    • uses public SDK classes whenever possible
    • rewritten, faster web views with zooming support
    • changes badge works again
    • more stable webviews (no crashes when queueing)
    • redesigned settings page
    • redesigned stashing page
    • faster scrolling of table views
    • bug fixes
    • ads no longer break the package views until restart
    • much better queueing UI
    • stabler refreshing bar
    iPad improvements:
    • - landscape
    • - popovesr
    • - modal views that cover only a portion of the screen
    • - less annoying errors with bad internet connections downloading packages
    • - updated section mappings, less typo'd sections

    A QUICK NOTE - THIS VERSION OF CYDIA IS NOT QUITE READY FOR ALL 3.X USERS, SO ONLY INSTALL IT IF YOU'RE ON 4.X.

    This version of Cydia is included in the recent redsn0w release, but if you're on an iPhone 4 or other already jailbroken device, you can actually install it straight from your iDevice. The absolute easiest way to do so is make sure you have iFile and Safari Download Manager installed, then visit http://apt.saurik.com/cydia/debs/cyd...honeos-arm.deb from your device. Remember where you download it to, and navigate there with iFile afterwards. Tap the deb it and choose install - done!

    Cydia is growing up so fast.

    Can we install through SSH?
    and if we can, will putting it into Cydia's AutoInstall suffice or must we install with terminal / PuTTY?
    Just wondering!

    Update:
    The AutoInstall folder plus a reboot worked wonderfully for me.

    There are several You Tube videos if you search that can make it much easier if your not familiar with the tools to accomplish this.
    I have noticed significant improvements since updating, kudos saurik.

    Works great on 3GS 4.1. Are there any firmware/device restrictions?

    I have read that it does work on the iPad, but do a simple Google search and make sure.
    Yes, it overwrites.
