Saurik has pushed, not one, but two updates to Cydia Installer. Version 1.1.21, which was released earlier today was then updated to 1.1.22 as it contained certain bugs.
Ever since the release of Cydia 1.1.19, which brought a huge change to how Cydia worked, there have been several updates to the app.
Since Cydia now works as mobile and can be effected by all the tweaks you install, new bugs keep appearing. This is the third Cydia update that Saurik has released in this month alone.
The updates are just bug fixes, but are essential.
Here’s what was fixed in Cydia 1.1.22
- Users who upgraded to Cydia 1.1.21 reported that all “trivial” APT sources they had added via Cydia (which are the vast majority of third-party sources used by normal users) did not show any packages.
And here’s the change log for Cydia 1.1.21
Shared Sources Sometimes Broke
- Using a URL to share a package from a third-party repository that had a typo could lead to an unremovable source.
Clearing Caches Could Kill Cydia
- A user reported a situation where they ran out of disk space, iOS cleared their caches, and then Cydia wouldn’t run.
Upgrading Cydia Broke AppleTVs
- Users of the AppleTV 2 jailbreak who upgraded to Cydia 1.1.19 or .20 would lose access to the core Cydia sources.
If you haven’t updated your Cydia yet, launch the app, click on refresh and you should be notified of the update. Install and you should no longer have issues with the above mentioned bugs.
