What is Cydia and Cydia Basics

When ever we buy a new iPod, iPad, iPhone or any other iOS device, we heard terms like Installous, Cydia, Unlocking, Jailbreaking  and so much more. Cydia and jailbreaking are the most popular terms for iOS devices. These terms allow any users to install any premium iPhone app for free.  if you are a new iPhone users then these terms like Cydia can be new for you. In this post we will answer all inmportant questions about it. Today, we will jump in the world of Cydia and understand  and learn what is Cydia and why we should have Cydia installed on iOS devices. Later on we will discuss about how to get Cydia. Now lets see what is Cydia and important information related to it.

What is Cydia?

Cydia is an independent, third-party installer app for all the iOS devvices. It is developed by Jay Freeman. We also know him as Saurik, it is identical to official App Store. But it allow you to download an use premium apps for free. the reason why you need Cydia because it offers what Apple doesn’t. For example, In iOS devices you can only set audio ringtones for incoming calls.  But in Cydia VUZIQ is a new tweak available through the BigBoss repository that allows you to set video ringtones for free. Installous which is one of the best app that you get from Cydia, as it allow you install all the apps for free on iOS device. How you get these apps free because all these apps are cracked and hosted on some free hosting sites.

Make sure that your iOS device is jailbroken to get Cydia.

Why Cydia was developed even when we already had the App Store?

What’s the difference? this question come in the mind on every new user. Answer is it offer you all those apps that even not approved by Apple. You can easily find these apps and tweaks in Cydia but not at App Store.

    Read: How to use Cydia

What is jailbreaking?

So now i believe that you know what is Cydia and now start learning how to get Cydia.
Jailbreaking is a process of modifying iOS operating system to remove all restriction imposed by Apple on its devices. Jailbreaking is must in order to install Cydia. You can also say, jailbreaking is hacking iOS.

There were rumors floating around few months ago that jailbreaking declared illegal, but whole world still continues to jailbreak. While Apple introduced new firmware to counter jailbreaking, with latest iOS 5.1.

Hackers work hard to find exploits which lead to jailbreaking. Now lets see little history, this battle between jailbreaking and Apple started in 2008, when George Hotz had released the very first jailbreak tool Geohot.

We can device Jailbreaking into three sub-part:

What is untethered, semi tethered and tethered jailbreak?

Tethered jailbreak need to plug in iDevice into the computer every time the idevice reboot. Untethered jailbreak don`t have this issue. Semi-tethered jailbreak allows to reboot idevice without any issues but some of jailbreak apps are not accessible on idevices. but full access is available when connected to the computer.

What are different tools of used for jailbreaking?

This list is long. But I will tell you few names are JailbreakMe, Sn0wbreeze, Greenpois0n, SpiritJB, Redsn0w, PwanageTool, Blackra1n and Limera1n. AprilRa1n is for iPad 3. You can only install Cydia on iPhone after jailbreaking. The tool we choose depends on many factors like the iDevice version, iOS version, unlocked or locked iPhone.

Important Note: If Jailbreaking the iPhone is not tough then it is not that non-technical also. It is recommended to buy a premium support or jailbreaking package. If your iphone get stuck while jailbreaking, you can get quick help.

Is Cydia safe?

This question comes in the mind of everyone. I must say that it is not 100% safe most of the jailbreak app is approved by the Cydia Store. So it have chances that some malware apps get approved. So, I recommend before downloading any app or tweak from Cydia, you must read about it on Internet. Download tweaks and apps only from trusted repositories. BigBoss and ModMyi are the safest repositories available.

Also, to take care of compatibility issues with tweaks read FAQ and know what you are doing, so you do not download any unsupported app as it can cause your iphone hang. But all of this Cydia is a must have app for iPhone or iPad.

What is the structure of Cydia?

Cydia Homepage

If you are going to install Cydia, then you should also know more. When you open Cydia, you will see 5 tabs:

    Home: It shows sponsored apps, sources FAQ, account information and important settings.
    Changes: You will see all updates and new programs here.
    Sections: here you will see categories of different apps.
    Manage: This let you to manage Cydia add sources and repositories, remove programs,and you can access storage.
    Search: You can search tweak here if you know the name of tweak.

What are Cydia repositories?

Now some of you ave this question that what are cydia repositories. Cydia repositories is online hub where the developers store their tweaks for installation. BigBoss and ModMyi are the most popular repositories and you will find most of the tweaks here. We all talk in separate post about popular Cydia repos:

How to purchase apps from Cydia?

Cydia also offers some paid tweaks for iPad or iPhone. Cydia allows you to login with your Twitter of  Facebook account and pay via Paypal or Amazon gift cards.

My recommendation : latest Cydia tweaks:

    iSleepWell: This tweak turns off all the radios when you place the device screen down. The Airplane mode will get activated when you about to sleep or in a meeting. You can get it from the BigBoss repo for just $0.99. It works best on iOS 5 and above.
    ClipboardEdit: This automatically reads text from the clipboard and displays the text. This one is free and available via BigBoss repo.
    AssitantExtensions: This is for iPhone 4S users. You can do everything with this app that you cna do with Siri. It also allows developers and hackers to come up with more extensions. It is a free avilable on BigBoss repo.
    Activator v 1.6.2: This is a must app for jailbreaker. This activate apps, which needs activator. You can search for the latest version of Activator in search tab.
    iLettars: This allows you to customize animations and change speed. iLettars is based on Activator actions. This tweak is available on ModMyi repo for $1.59.

Can Cydia Be installed without jailbreaking?

People usually ask that if they can install Cydia without jailbreaking. Answer is NEVER!

Sometimes, Cydia takes time for reloading because Cydia stores package catalog on iOS device and it downloads the updates when you open it. But new version of Cydia is very fast and you don't face Cydia reloading issue.
