• Saurik Releases Cydia 1.1.20, Which Fixes Some Bugs in the 1.1.19 Release

    Saurik has released yet another update to Cydia Installer following the major version 1.1.19 release from Friday that allowed Cydia to run as mobile instead of as root.

    As you would expect, changing from running as root instead of mobile requires a lot of internal changes. Some of those changes introduced a few small bugs, so Saurik has released version 1.1.20 of Cydia Installer today that fixes those bugs. The full change log via Cydia can be read below:

    Cydia 1.1.20 is a bug fix release

    Section Hiding Sometimes Crashed

    If you went to "Sources", tapped "All Sources" (or an individual source), tapped "Edit", and toggled section hiding on or off, Cydia could crash. (This feature lets you hide specific categories of packages from showing up in "Changes" if you aren't interested in them.) Cydia should no longer crash when you do that.

    Ignore Upgrades Didn't Do Anything

    If you had gone to "Change Package Settings" at the top of a package page for an installed package, and then chose "Ignore Upgrades" (which means "do not include this package when selecting Upgrade All"), that feature wasn't doing anything. It should now work again.

    "Fix Half-Installed Package"... Didn't

    Ordinarily when a package installation fails for some reason, it can be left in a "half-installed" state, and Cydia offers to fix this state for you but this wasn't working. Now if you get a half-installed package and accept the option to fix it, it should get fixed.

    Storage Reported Impossible Values

    If you went to the Cydia homepage, tapped "Storage Information", and tapped "Storage" to learn how much room you have for new packages, Cydia reported strange numbers. Cydia should report reasonable numbers now.

    Missing Changelog Item Re Backup

    When we wrote the changelog for Cydia 1.1.19, we forgot to mention that as of Cydia 1.1.19, your sources list is now included in your iTunes backup. This means that if you add a few sources, backup your jailbroken device, restore, and both put your backup onto your device and jailbreak again, Cydia will conveniently have your list of sources including the ones you added.
    Upgrading to the new Cydia 1.1.20 is very easy. If you're already jailbroken, you can just visit the "Changes" tab in your Cydia application and you should be prompted to install an "Essential Upgrade," unless you're already updated it. Just go through with the upgrade by tapping on "Complete Upgrade," and the latest version of Cydia Installer (1.1.20) will be installed.

    This isn't an update you're going to want to miss; Cydia 1.1.19 and later finally gives jailbreak developers a way to modify Cydia with jailbreak tweaks.

      I upgraded this along with activator and now the volume control on my apple earpods don't work. It works on other iDevices though. Anyone else have this problem?

      UPDATE: it works now after I reinstalled activator

      Installing Activator makes my iPhone 6+ enter a boot loop I had to disable Cydia to uninstall before I could do anything with the phone
