    Hi

    So I open Cydia, then click on a tweak page (lets say a Zepplin addon) where you can install/purchase. Next thing Cydia redirects/closes the current page im on then opens iTunes and takes me to a game (candy crush).

    This has happened about 10 times since last night, I'm on a fresh JB with evasi0n 1.5. All my tweaks installed are iOS6 compatible, I read on google it might be something to do with the video ads in Cydia.

    Anyways has anybody else experienced this issue? And a fresh restore/JB doesn't make a difference, this still happens on a fresh JB before any Cydia tweaks are installed. It's very annoying too.

    No it's not actual ads how your thinking, like the iTunes game candy crush is not showing as an ad on Cydia. It's not a normal thing for Cydia to close and iTunes to open on its own taking me to a game, besides you usually have to click on an ad in Cydia for it to take you out of Cydia to the ad you click on and I'm clicking on no ads at all. Also I have no control over this happening and in the years I've used Cydia this has never happened until now.

    Also doesn't matter which option you have selected, user/hacker/dev this issue still occurs.

    It's def a bug that needs fixing.

    It's not just ads, it's a problem with Cydia. Something is triggering iTunes to open and as I said above it shouldn't be happening.

    This just started happening to me yesterday. I was updating packages in cydia. The first one I updated was the evasi0n package from 0.3-1 to 0.4-1. That's when I noticed itunes opening by itself. At first I thought that I tapped an ad by mistake, but it kept happening all by itself. I just stared at cydia and after a few seconds it just happens. Never did this before updating the evasi0n, so I think that's where the problem is.

    Anyone confirm my thoughts?

    Cheers!

    This is becoming quite an annoyance now to be honest, yesterday it happened at least 10 times, feels like every time I'm in Cydia it's happening.

    I also tweeted planet and Saurik but no response, whatever is causing it I hope will get fixed ASAP. Even on a freshly JB iPhone 5 with evasi0n it happens. :/

    This has been happening to me too, I installed the repo to install Sara then it started popping up whenever I tried to install it through search, If I install it from sources it works fine, But if I search for it iTunes comes up...

    I believe that if you have a hack source on that begins with is******i then this is what is causing the problem. I am not 100% but I seem to remember reading it somewhere.

    Just my 2p

    I think it is just certain repos and I installed NoCyads which helped a bit. It got to the point that I could not do anything because iTunes kept opening. I am still getting ads but I can maneuver through it now. Very frustrating.

    It's every time Cydia loads a link to anything hosted by modmyi for me. Safari/chrome also do multiple pop ups and open AppStore when I'm browsing this forum. It's really irritating.
