How To: Upgrade And Install Cydia v1.1.6 To Remove The “Dickbar” April Fools Prank

Earlier today we told you that Saurik pushed an update for Cydia bringing it to version 1.1.6. In this Cydia update comes the removal of the code which initiates that “Dickbar” functionality within Cydia. You see, last year Saurik played a prank on the Jailbreaking community by integrating the beloved “Twitter Quick Bar” into the Changes tab. As this ended up confusing a lot of people and making them angry, Saurik kindly pushed an update today to remove the obsolete code.
