Saurik has just released another update for Cydia, which fixes a number of bugs. Cydia 1.1.16 includes a fix for a critical “restore from backup” bug, increases the multitask timeout interval, improves App Store redirect block and also fixes the issue with login dialog on iPad.


Here’s the complete details:


You can download the update via the Changes tab in Cydia.


iOS 8 “Restore from Backup” Fixed


This update fixes an important bug in Cydia 1.1.14 and 1.1.15 on iOS 8: if you used “restore from backup” in iTunes after your first use of Cydia, you needed to reinstall this package to make sure your device could safely reboot with a passcode enabled.

It should now be OK to use the iTunes “restore from backup” feature without needing to then reinstall Cydia Installer afterward to avoid reboot problems.


Increase iOS 8 Multitask Timeout


Cydia automatically refreshes the package catalog if it was suspended too long. This timeout is now set to 15 minutes. It had previously been only 15 seconds, because that’s what I was using to test this feature, and I forgot to change it back. (Doh.)


Improved App Store Redirect Block


The initial version of this feature turned out to only be partially effective: we have done wider testing and have improved our iTunes URL detection.


Login Dialog on iPad Works Now


Apparently, logging in to an account on an iPad would not reload the login dialog, making it seem like you needed to log in again?! This is now fixed.



It is still not possible to purchase new jailbreak apps and tweaks on Cydia currently. saurik wants the basic jailbreaking experience to be “reasonably reliable” before opening it up.


As always, let us know how it goes in the comments.C

While we're on the subject... what is the best/most effective way for you guys to back Cydia tweaks up?
