Millions of people are using Cydia on their iDevices’ right now but only a handful knows its history. To appreciate Saurik’s work and how Cydia came to be, I decided to share with you a brief history of Cydia below. This would be a good time to know it’s background before we update Cydia.
In February of 2008, Jay Freeman unleashed the very first version of Cydia.
August, 2009 – Saurik claimed that more than 4 million people have installed Cydia on the devices.
SaurikIT, LLC acquired “Rock Your Phone, Inc.” in September, 2010. Both companies are the largest makers of 3rd party apps.
Using the cable that came with your Apple device, connect it to your Mac/PC.
Using either Cyberduck or WinSCP, SSH the latest Cydia deb file to your iDevice to this path: /root/private/var/root.
Open iFile and find Cydia.
Tap on the Cydia icon.
Tap on the “Installer” to start the update process.
Let the Installer do its work.
After a couple of minutes, Cydia will be updated.
Not too complicated after all! You can watch the video below to see how Cydia update is done.
Updating Cydia is easy if you follow our guide “Update Cydia: Automatic Update and Manual Update Methods”. Please share this post with your friends and comment below if you encounter any problem or if you just want to send us a “Thank you”.
