How to Download Cydia on iOS 8.0/8.1


For all those iOS enthusiasts, China now rules in terms of jailbreaking tools. The latest stable version is now available both in English and Chinese, is both available for Windows and Mac and can jailbreak both iOS 8.0 and iOS 8.1 versions of the latest iOS. Although is a stable version it has a few bugs when is supposed to install 3rd party apps like Cydia. Cydia doesn’t have a compatibility issue with the latest iOS because it was developed and tested long before the latest iOS release. I personaly think the problem is in the way Pangu manages the Cydia Source and where it pushes the Cydia Download to your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad.

Let’s not discuss this issue further more because now I’ll tell you how to Download Cydia on your newly jailbroken iDevice.

Cydia Download Recipe


1 iPhone/iPad/iPod jailbroken with Pangu8 running iOS 8.0/8.1 if not check the jailbreak tutorial

1 PC/Mac connected to the same Wi-Fi network with your iDevice

Directions to Install Cydia:


Download OpenSSH

1st step: make sure that your iphone is connected to the internet and from the Home Screen tap on Pangu

2nd step: tap on OpenSSH option from the list

3rd step: tap Install from the top right corner

Wait for the process to complete the OpenSSH Install

Download Cydia for Jailbreaked iOS 8/8.1 Devices

1st step: make a full backup of your iOS device in case you didn’t before proceeding to the next step

2nd step: from your computer download the latest Cydia .deb file from


and the latest cydia-Iproj from


3rd step: after downloading Cydia DEB files on your Mac/PC push the files to your iOS device using SFTP

Mac users: Cyberduck

Win users: WinSCP

4th step: back to your device go to Settings > Wi-Fi and find the network that your computer and iDevice share. Select the network and note the IP Address

5th step: start your previously downloaded SFTP client, insert the IP Address from your iOS device, username = root and password = alpine

6th step: once logged in drag and drop the deb files in the root “/” of your device

Update: Go to /var/root/Media/AutoInstall/ in the SFTP File Browser and paste the files here, if the folder doesn’t exist just create it. Reboot the device after transfer is complete, reboot your device and skip the last 3 steps because DEB files will be installed after the reboot

7th step: now SSH your way into the iDevice, simply hit Ctrl + T on Windows+WinSCP or + T on Mac+Cyberduck

8th step: from the same command line first run this command

dpkg -i cydia-lproj_1.1.12_iphoneos-arm.deb

next the last one

dpkg -i cydia_1.1.13_iphoneos-arm.deb

9th step: reboot the device


Let’s be honest, that wasn’t really hard and let’s hope that Pangu8 will install Cydia by default because the meaning of a jailbreak is to Get Cydia Installed.

Remember that not all the App or Tweaks available in Cydia work on iOS 8.


As a closing line,



Download and Install AppSync


What’s AppSync and Why is a Must-Have App?


Download and Install AppSync


Many of the Cydia people that have Cydia installed must-have AppSync. Why? Is more because what AppSync does. All the apps you purchase from Apples App Store are signed by Apple, so every app you get from the AppStore is tailored fit to your iOS Device to make sure the app is not transferable from one device to another. This is the protection that Apple ensures to developers across this Market Place. This is the reason you cannot copy, duplicate or distribute an app. In the other hand cracked apps are modified apps that are not digital signed. Apps that are not signed cannot be installed… here is the part where AppSync comes in handy, it allows you to install all those free apps from vShare or AppCake.

Users that have jailbroken their iOS devices just have made their lives easier just follow these easy steps to download AppSync to iOS 8 in Cyida.


Step 1: If don’t have cydia installed just jailbrake your device from the cydia download page – follow the tutorial listed there.


Step 2: Launch Cydia -> Manage and tap on Sources ->Edit -> Add


Step 3: AppSync is one of the most polular tweaks out there. So is listed under many repos:






Step 4: Enter one of the upper listed sources in APT URL box and tap on Add Source


Step 5: Return to Cydia and now you can Search, Download and Install AppSync


Careful to select the app that corresponds to your iOS version.


Disclamer: This is just a guide/tutorial so you can test the app before you buy it. Install the free apps on your own risk.
