Thread: Article: EDIT: Cydia 1.1.2 Has NOT Released

  1. #1
    Default Cydia 1.1.2 Released
    his article is no longer relevant. This is not a release and was clarified by saurik.

    New versions of Cydia are often posted like this to prepare for new platform features related to jailbreaks, like the unionfs work that comex has been documenting recently: these changes are largely untested and users upgrading to version 1.1.2 of Cydia without an explicit recommendation to do so are doing so at their own peril.

    The reason that these files are placed in public is in order to make it simpler for the mechanisms of testing things, so version numbers do not need to be changed later in the process. However, that was obviously a mistake: people now scour this server looking for "updates" and then publish articles about "releases", which is ludicrous.
    I apologize for the inconvenience and mis-leading factor of this article. It was not my intention and has been fixed. Please spread this news if anyone is in confusion. One disclaimer:

    Releases for Cydia will come through the "Changes" log. Anything that you find different on the apt server is either for other purposes or something that is not ready. DO NOT use them unless noted otherwise.

    My little brain can't see any change except the version number but it still makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

    thanks.

    Thanks for the heads up!

    To install:

    Get the .deb.

    SSH into the phone.

    Place the .deb in /tmp

    In the mobile terminal, or your Mac's terminal enter:

    dpkg -i /tmp/cydia_1.1.2_iphoneos-arm.deb

    killall SpringBoard

    Launch Cydia and you'll see the version at the bottom of the main page.

    lol use installer not unarchive/zip viewer. make sure cydia isn't open or else it won't work.

    MacBook Pro 13" 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, 4 GB DDR3 RAM, Mac OS X 10.6.7 | Mac OS X 10.7

    Default this is not a release: bad "article", no fact checking

    There is no changelog provided and I'm unsure if this release will be done through Cydia or not.

    Downloaded and updated. Works fine. Don't really see anything new on the surface, although most likely what is new isn't in the graphics.
