Cydia 1.1.28 Final veröffentlicht – Tweak Käufe möglich

Jay Freeman – der der Jailbreak Community unter dem Namen Saurik besser bekannt sein dürfte – hat nun endlich die finale Version von Cydia 1.1.28 für iPhone, iPad und iPod Touch herausgerollt. Es sind einige größere Änderungen mit dabei!

Cydia 1.1.28 Final veröffentlicht - Tweak Käufe möglich Apple iOS Software

Version 1.1.28 wurde seit dem 16. Dezember als Beta Version getestet. Dies ist das erste Release, das eine native Unterstützung für die 64 Bit Geräte mitbringt und auch offiziell den Yalu Jailbreak für iOS 10 – 10.2 unterstützt. Außerdem nutzt das Programm nun APT 1.14~b, welches die Management Logik verbessert und einen offiziellen Linux Standard darstellt. Als größere Änderung oder Feature ist nun auch der Tweak Kauf mit dem iOS 10-10.2 Jailbreak möglich!

Natürlich sind auch die üblichen Bugfixes und Verbesserungen unter der Haube in dem Update versteckt. Solltet ihr die Aktualisierung noch nicht durchgeführt haben, wäre jetzt ein guter Zeitpunkt dazu!


Cydia now uses APT 1.14—b

This is a major update to the core package management logic used by Cydia. This library, which is shared with Linux distributions such as Debian and Ubuntu, is an industry standard, which Cydia has been excited to share. For purposes of performance and reliability, Cydia had a number of patches to the (rather old) copy of APT it had been using. It turns out APTs upstream has been paying attention, and was excited to have us update. The big thing to know about this change is that there are a handful of repositories that are simply broken, and older versions of Cydia failed to notice. We’ve had this build of Cydia in a „public beta“ now for an entire month, which has been a lot of time to get the more important of these to fix their corrupt metadata files. However, you may still run into warnings: you should remove the repositories which are broken, and it is not a bug in Cydia that you see warnings.

Cydia is now a 64-bit Process

Cydia is now compiled for ARM64. While this offers Cydia very little direct advantages (and probably comes at a performance penalty), this avoids a misleading dialog box from Apple and also happened to work around an iss on iOS 10 where no links in the App could be clicked. Note that this means that any extensions installed to modify Cydia will now need to be recompiled for 64-bit as well.

Support for iOS 10

There are at least a handful of users using iOS 10 due to the new Yalu jailbreak: this version  has a couple minor modifications to make this work better for them. For those worried about Cydia on older systems: the vast majority of users are using iOS 7, 8, and 9 (in nearly equal percentages), and it continues to support even older versions of iOS, so do not feel concerned about updating (l still haven’t updated from my iOS 8.4 primary phone ;P).

Some Random Bug Fixes

iAdam1n reported an issue where removing a repository could cause the App to not provide a UI to return to the previous screen. Find Extensions for Applications was broken for a few releases, but has now been fixed. Due to the new Yalu jailbreak shipping with SSH, some long-standing „right after jailbreak“ bugs were able to be understood and fixed, making the App less likely to fail right after installation.
