    Default CyNotifier is a New Jailbreak Tweak That Can Notifiy You About Cydia Package Updates


    When it comes to Cydia packages, updates are frequent, and sometimes it can be easy to forget to check Cydia for updates on a timely basis, which means you could be missing out on important security fixes, bug fixes, and even fun new features for your favorite jailbreak tweaks.

    A new free jailbreak tweak that hit the ModMyi repository on Saturday called CyNotifier by iOS developer rbt could be just what you need to help keep your Cydia packages up to date.

    This tweak is basically a bridge between Cydia and the stock iOS notification center system. What this means is that any time there is an update for one of your packages in Cydia, CyNotifier will alert you with a push notification so that you know to open Cydia and update your package.

    CyNotifier can be set up to check Cydia for updates in the background at any interval you want. You can have large intervals, which protects your battery life from unwanted drainage, or you can go for more frequent intervals, which will obviously leave a larger footprint in your battery life. Moreover, you can select what repositories CyNotifier will check for updates, and you can even be more specific and just select individual packages that you're interested in receiving notifications about.

    CyNotifier is configured from the Settings application after being installed. We've included screenshots of the preferences that you can configure below:



    Your options here include:

    • Enabling or disabling the tweak on demand
    • Configuring whether the tweak will be limited to checking on Wi-Fi networks, or on cellular networks too
    • Hiding or showing a notification badge on the Cydia icon when an update is available
    • Excluding the packages you have installed that you're not interested in receiving update notifications for
    • Excluding the repositories you have added that you're not interested in receiving update notifications from
    • Allowing the tweak to show a "No Updates Found" banner when it checks for updates and none are available
    • Manually update the update checker via a button


    CyNotifier integrates very nicely with Cydia and iOS' notification center. It's an easy 5-star tweak in our eyes and we can see it being useful in the lives of many jailbreakers that want to keep their Cydia packages up to date for the good of their own stability and user experience. Best of all, it's completely free of cost in Cydia's ModMyi repository right now. Check it out!

    One problem with that tweak: it displays ads everywhere

    I don't understand how Anthony can rate it 5 star with all the ads.

    What do you mean it displays ads everywhere? There must be something wrong.
    Could you guys contact me through the contact button from the package on Cydia? This way I'll get a list of your installed packages and can investigate. Thanks!

    I have an update in cydia, but cynotifier didnt show me something And is it possible to have notification center support?

  7. #7
    For support please write me a mail using either the contact button on Cydia or in the settings of CyNotifier.
    In some cases CyNotifier does not send you a notification. For example if the package is from a non-default repo that is not yet supported.
    There won't be a native nc support soon, but it should be possible to save the notification.

    Maybe you need to adjust the update check frequency so that it checks more frequently? It doesn't just pop up with notifications as soon as an update is released, but rather, you choose an interval that the tweak will search to see if you have any updates.

    I don't mind going to Cydia and seeing the updates available. I get enough alerts daily via NC.

    I had ads too... Even in other apps. Uninstalling got rid of them.

    Ads popping up in the ESPN app every time I switched tabs. Mostly App Store video ads which can't be immediately dismissed, I had to wait until the video loaded to dismiss them. Uninstalling the tweak got rid of them...

    I'm investigating what's happening with the ads. Same as Anthony I don't have any problems, neither did anyone from the beta test tell me about this and it was a huge beta test.
    Anyway, it would be great to receive a mail from anyone who has an issue with the tweak. Contact me either on the package details page on Cydia or via the contact button of CyNotifier's settings. This way it's easier for me to help. I can't follow multiple threads.

    Seems to be solved: You can always get the newest beta version on my repo http://betarepo.thisisdns.com
