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:
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
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.
