I think you’ve ended up here because you want to download cydia or update cydia. Let’s clear things out. Cydia Installer is the App within cydia that can update cydia(so it updates it’s self). Cydia Installer can be used both for installing cydia and update cydia. Cydia Installer comes as a .deb file and can be installed with or without cydia installed. I know it’s confusing, but treat it like a setup or installation file (.msi/.exe whatever). If you want to Install Cydia you can use the cydia setup (or cydia installer in our case). If you have cydia installed and run the setup file again it’s like an update or repair cydia.
Let’s get straight to the chase… to download and install cydia you have to jailbreak your device. This is mandatory, because Apple doesn’t allow you to mess around with it’s iOS and AppStore Apps. Jailbreaking means you get Root Access to your iPhone, iPad or any iOS Device. Apple has to protect some interests here so it cuts your freedom to do whatever you want with your iOS Device.On iCydiaBlog.com you can find lot’s of great and simple tutorials on how to jailbreak, download and install cydia.
