Thread: installing cydia without jailbreaking

  1. #1
    Default installing cydia without jailbreaking
    I had installed cydia while jailbreaking.
    Now since winterboard was not working, I uninstalled cydia using apt-get remove cydia.
    Then when I tried to install it back using apt-get, it was not installed.

    So I got the latest file from http://apt.saurik.com/debs/cydia_1.0...honeos-arm.deb using curl -O and renamed the file as cydia.deb since wget was not working(command not found).

    Now when i try to do a dpkg -i cydia.deb, it gives me cydia.deb is not a debian formt archive.

    What should I do.
    Is using curl instead of wget messing the file.
    Please provide alternatives so I can isntall cydia.

    Thanks

    I have not done this but I think you should go and get the latest deb for pincrush and whatever dependencies you need from the internet and I used Iphone pc suite to load these deb files onto my Iphone.
    I just lost all my bookmarks and favourites on IE so you have to google search it yourself. Sorry....
