The waiting has finished. A few minutes ago Saurik, has finally released the most famous Jailbreak package installer Cydia 1.1 to public. It comes a number of fixes, new features, and enhancements to make everybody’s jailbreaking an even more greater experience.
Here’s the features of Cydia 1.1:
* Ability to use Activator, libstatusbar, and while SimulatedKeyEvents Cydia is working
* Speed dramatically improved
* Less memory usage
* Improved search mechanism
* Better handling of corrupt repository, which can be removed quickly.
The update is already downloaded and installed by all users simply by running the “Full Upgrade” that will be required once you have uploaded all content Cydia.
Here’s how you can update this.
To update to the latest version, simply open up Cydia. Let it refresh your sources, and an “Essential Upgrade” box will pop-up. Tap on “Complete Upgrade”.
After that, you’ll be taken to a confirmation screen, which will tell you everything that Cydia will be changing. In the above screenshot, you can see that Cydia’s going to be installing 3 new essential packages (required for the new Cydia). It will also be removing 3 of the old community sources, as those will be replaced. Finally, and most importantly, Cydia will be upgrading Cydia Installer. iFile is just a Cydia app that I have installed that just happened to have received an update recently.
Let everything process, and within a few minutes, you’ll be on the new Cydia.
