Cydia 1.1.9 Update Was Released In Cydia – Brings Compatibility With iOS 7

On December 25, 2013


With only a few tens of minutes ago, Saurik (creator of Cydia) has released an update for the Cydia app, making it compatible with the new iOS 7 and with evasi0n7. Without mentioning anything through its Twitter account, Saurik explains, however, that this update is meant to make Cydia application compatible with all iOS versions from iOS 2 to iOS 7. Unfortunately, this build doesn’t come without bugs, the application dropbar not being 100% functional, but Saurik is quickly working on solving problems.

Due to evasi0n 7 having been released with an unofficial build of “Cydia”, I had to upgrade Cydia via a package. This is more complex, as packages I release in my repository have to work for all users, not just those on the latest firmware. I have managed to get Cydia 1.1.9 working on iOS 2-7. Please understand that there are still some things about this build that are “not quite right” (including the dropbar, which I want to have work like the iTunes Store’s song preview bar, but right now is simply broken). I needed to get this out so I could move to Substrate, and thereby kind of hacked that together.

Cydia Installer 1.1.9 update is available for free in Cydia, but you must have patience to install it because the servers that host repos are subject to a large load and it would be difficult to display information.
