Cydia logo

Jay Freeman aka Saurik, the founder of Cydia has released an upgrade to Cydia version 1.1 for Jailbroken devices.

Cydia is a software application for iOS that allows a user to find and download software packages (including applications) for a jailbroken iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad.

Cydia is a graphical front end to APT and the dpkg package management system, so the packages available in Cydia are provided by a decentralized system of repositories that list these packages. Most of the software packages available through Cydia are free, and it also includes several hundred packages for sale through the Cydia Store with a commission setup similar to the App Store.

Features of Cydia 1.1 include:

  • the ability to run and operate Activator, libstatusbar, and SimulatedKeyEvents while Cydia is running
  • an overall speed improvement, including the “Loading Changes” dialog
  • “much less” memory usage
  • a more advanced search mechanism with a new relevancy algorithm
  • better management of broken repositories

In order to use Cydia, Apple device owners must perform what is known as a “jailbreak” of their software, using one of various hacking tools distributed for free by groups like the iPhone Dev Team, and Chronic Dev.
