Cydia is a replacement packaging and repository manager for the original Installer.app for the iPhone or iPod touch.It allows a user to browse and download applications for a jailbroken iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad. It was developed by Jay Freeman.Cydia was originally released as an open-source alternative to Installer.app on iOS 1.1.x, but quickly became the most popular package manager upon 2.0’s release.
It usually takes a couple minutes from the time you launch Cydia to the time you can actually download something.There is a simple and quick trick that will incredibly speed up Cydia by removing ads and screenshots in each package.
Here’s how you can do that.
Step 1: SSH into your iPhone to /private/var/stash/Applications/Cydia.app
Step 2: Make a backup of the package.js, just to be on the safe side.
Step 3: Edit package.js and at around line 197 change the snippet of code to this
var depiction = package.depiction;
if ((!commercial) && (depiction == null || true))
Step 4: Now reboot your iPhone.
That’s all.Now launch Cydia and you should see the speed has been considerably improved.
