Cydia by default has most of the popular repositories added including the Bigboss repo, ModMyi repo etc so you don’t have to add yourself. This is very convenient and most of the time you don’t need to add any other repo or source to Cydia in order to download stuff. However there are times when you need to add a repo in Cydia to download some tweak or app that is not available on the main repositories.

Adding a new repo in Cydia is pretty simple but can be tricky if you have no clue about how to do it. In this post we are going to show you how to add a repo in Cydia. The whole process will require a few steps to complete. Remember you will need an internet connection and a valid repo link to do so.

  1. Launch Cydia on your jailbroken iOS device and  tap on the “Sources” button located at footer bar of Cydia.cydia source screen,add new source
  2. On the “Source” screen you will see the list of your installed sources. At the top-right corner tap “Edit”. Once you press “Edit” , all sources name will have a red icon before their name, which shows that you have pressed “Edit”.cydia source add, screen, new repo
  3. Then, at the top-left corner, tap “Add”. Once “Add” is pressed, a pop up will show, where you can write url of the repo you want to add.cydia source add, screen, new repo
  4. Then, type your new repo/source Url and tap “Add Source”.
  5. Now, you have to wait a couple of seconds, until cydia downloads some infos for your new repo.cydia source add, screen, new repo
  6. After Cydia finish downloading informations, Your new Source will be added to the Sources list.cydia source screen,add new source

Done! That’s how you add a repo in Cydia.

Your source has been added and you can download anything you want from this repo. The source you have added will appear in the list of sources in Cydia and you can delete it from there whenever you want.

Below you will find the guide for a beginner to learn how to use Cydia.

On the footer, you see 5 sections, which i will explain it here:

  • Cydia – Homepage
  • Sources – Your list of Repos; You can Add & Remove sources in this section.
  • Changes – New tweaks from repos and any upgrade for installed ones will be shown here.
  • Installed – Here is the complete list of installed tweaks in your iDevice.
  • Search – Search feature to find any tweak you want.

Every iPhone, iPod, iPad or any other iOS device user may have heard often terms like Jailbreaking, Unlocking, Cydia etc. Many of us don’t know what these things are or what they do. I will try to explain as short and as good as possible what these terms are and the importance of Cydia.

What is Cydia?

Cydia is a third-party installer application for all the iDevices. It is developed by Jay Freeman ( Saurik ) and is similar to the Apple App Store but it brings apps and tweaks that are not available in App Store, which can be downloaded for free or for a small charge.

Why should we install Cydia when we have App Store?

It’s simple. Because Cydia offers tweaks, apps, games, themes which are not available in official Apple Store or can not be approved by Apple. So, those apps and tweaks can be found only in Cydia but not at the App Store.

What is jailbreaking?

Jailbreaking is the process of modifying iOS and gets root access to perform many actions and remove all restriction imposed by Apple. To install Cydia, jailbreaking is a must. In another word, jailbreaking is hacking iOS.

Jailbreaking can be divided into three subpart, which we have discussed below.

  1. Tethered Jailbreak – requires you to plug in the iDevice into the computer every time the device reboots.
  2. Untethered Jailbreak – allows you to reboot without any barrier. Basically its the best type of jailbreak because you can reboot anytime you want.
  3. Semi-tethered Jailbreak – allows you to reboot without any issues, but some of the downloaded jailbreak apps are not accessible.However, full access is available again once connected to the computer.

Is Cydia safe?

Cydia it’s not 100% safe. This means that you can install malware apps, mostly by some untrusted repos. So, if you install only tweaks by trusted repos such as: BigBoss, ModMyi etc, you won’t have any problems. And if you get a malware the worst thing is that you have to format and reset you iDevice to factory settings.

Also, take care of compatibility issues with tweaks. Every time read version compatibility for every tweak you try to install. Even if your device crash, Cydia automatically boots to Safe Mode where you can uninstall the tweak which cause the issue.

What are Cydia repositories (Repos)?

Repo is an online hub where the developers release and store their tweaks for quick access and installation. Most popular repos are BigBoss and ModMyi and most of released tweaks are in these two repositories.

Down below you have a list of best Repos for Cydia:

Can Cydia Be installed without jailbreaking?

No ! If anyone says that he can install Cydia without jailbreaking in your iDevice then either he is a fool or is trying to scam you.

I hope this post will help you answering some questions about Cydia and jailbreaking.
