Saurik has been busy these past few weeks, making some major changes to Cydia
, including having it run as mobile instead of root, this now allows developers to create tweaks that modify Cydia itself. Version 1.1.23 is another pretty big update, check out whats new after the jump .
The newest feature that caught my eye with this update is the ability to downgrade to previous versions of a package. This is particularly useful when a developer releases an update where it may fix an issue but it unintentionally breaks something else. Users can downgrade to the previous working version of the tweak until the latest issues are fixed.
Extentions for Apps
Directly inspired by TweakHub by UnlimApps, Cydia now provides categorized package lists based on the iOS apps you have installed. You’ll find a new “Find Extensions for Applications” on Cydia’s homepage now.
Clearing Cache Would Kill Cydia
Apparently a user experienced an issue where they were running out of disk space and after iOS cleaned their caches Cydia wouldn’t run. This has now been fixed.
Looks like there’s no slowing Saurik down, these updates are awesome
