Saurik, earlier today, released an updated version of Cydia that fixes some nasty bugs and also gets new useful features. Cydia 1.1.14 is now available from Cydia, if you’ve installed it, as an essential upgrade.
The latest version of Cydia gets rid of a bug that caused bootloop and reboots when the Passcode Lock was enabled. It also gets multitasking on iOS 8, iPhone 6 compatibility, new languages and more. Here are all the new features and fixes in Cydia 1.1.14:
iOS 8 Passcode Compatibility
Cydia no longer causes your device to lock up while booting on iOS 8 when you use a passcode. We recommend you use a passcode for security.
(Under Settings, go to “Touch ID & Passcode”, and “Turn Passcode On”.)
If you have installed unsupported stashing modifications, you may want to restore and jailbreak again, instead of directly installing this update (those modifications are unsupported).
Multitasking Support on iOS 8
Cydia now backgrounds almost like a regular application (but only on iOS 8). This has been a major architectural change: please alert us to any issues.
This allows you to switch back/forth between Cydia and other applications (such as Safari, or the Google two-factor authentication app) without losing your package selection state.
New Window and Hijack Blocking
One of the biggest complaints about Cydia in the last year has been a new kind of ad seen on some repositories: a sudden redirect to the App Store.
Cydia now blocks “popups” and asks the user before opening the App Store.
Partial iPhone 6 Plus Support
Cydia supports rotation on the iPhone 6 Plus and has a new @3x icon and tabbar. Cydia renders at the native resolution on both the 6 and 6 Plus.
Videos Work Again (on iOS 7.1-8.1)
Cydia on iOS 7.1 had an issue where playing video would cause the device to “lock up”. This bug has finally been fixed! The new iOS 8 video issue (a YouTube error message) is also fixed.
Localization Works Now on iOS 8
Users of Cydia 1.1.13 (only available via a manual installation process) may have noticed Cydia only displayed in English :(. This has been fixed! Yay!
Queue Status is “Less Incorrect”
Sometimes Cydia would not have packages queued but claim it did, or would have packages queued and claim it did not; this happens less ;P.
Have you updated yet? Let us know if you’re facing any other bugs after updating. Now all we need is a complete Pangu jailbreak tool with Cydia included for both Windows and Mac.
