Easy Update or Re-Install Cydia without Jailbreak

cydiaWell in some cases the solution for fixing bugs in apps is reinstallation or updating and this is the exact solution for some bugs that Cydia has. The version that I’m talking about is Cydia version 1.0.3366-1. Beside the well waited bug fixes this version fixes also problems and also has new additions like very short data reloading times, autocorrect packages, fast scrolling, optimization of remapping, stable WebWiews, an efficient menu refresh.


3 Easy Steps to Reinstall Cydia

The most common problems user encounter:

“My Cydia logo disappeared from the board…”

“Couldn’t see the Cydia App after Jailbreaking…”

“Cydia is crashing every time I try to start it…”

“Not loading packages in Cydia”

… and more …

Before going crazy give this tutorial a try. Don’t try to bother with the reason of the problem… common issues are related to incomplete files after installation. If this doesn’t work download cydia again and follow the attached steps to re-jailbreak with cydia included.

First Step: Remove all Cydia related Apps, Sources or Tweaks

To remove all the apps go to Cydia > Manage > Packages

Select Mobile Substrate from the list and tap on Modify > Remove (don’t tap on Reinstall from here). This procedure will Remove All Cydia APPS, wait a few minutes for completion (either way those apps would not have worked, after you finish this tutorials you can reinstall them).

Second Step: Download Cydia DEB – latest version

Direct from iOS device open your internet browser (Safari in most cases) point the address to http://apt.saurik/cydia/debs/ and download the latest version of cydia deb file from that long list.

Third Step: use iFile to Reinstall Cydia

Open your iFile and reinstall cydia on your iOS device using the install option. In less than a minute you are done. This procedure was tested even on the latest iOS 8.

For this to work you will need iFile and Safari Download Manager, using Cydia search and install these apps. Usually the BigBoss repo is installed by default but if you are having problems finding them try adding the repo to Cydia. You can do this by opening Cydia, tap Sources, tap Edit, tap Add, now input this link without quotes “http://apt.thebigboss.org/repofiles/cydia/” and then tap Add Source.ifile

Once you have installed these two apps now we can change our attention to downloading the Cydia package. You can download it by using Safari Download Manager. Once the download is finished in iFile go to “VAR/mobile/media/Download” and touch the cydia package. Installing Cydia should be fast. Once the installation is finished restart your iDevice.

The only way to know that you have installed the latest build is to check in Cydia if you have 1.0.3366-1.

As you can see this tutorial is quite easy and there is no need to rejailbreak, the only thing that you need to do is to follow these steps and you will have a good working Cydia app.
