Jailbreak News: Cydia 1.1 Now Live!

  • April 3, 2011 9:32 am

While Apple has done a tremendous job in creating a mobile mecca revolving around a few popular devices that all being with “i”, they still have their fair share of failures — namely devs turned away by Apple’s ultra strict policies regarding their App Store. But the developers turned away (or not wanting to be part of the Apple club) aren’t crying in their beer. They’re busy making the iOS platform a better place.

TodaySeveral days ago, Cydia 1.1 was publicly released bringing with it some very important changes:

  • Decrease in Cydia memory usage
  • Improved search algorithm
  • Lets iOS run Activator, libstatusbar, and SimulatedKeyEvents while Cydia is running
  • Speed improvements throughout

My biggest gripe with Cydia has always been that’s is slower than molasses in December and isn’t very good at multi-tasking. But those complaints appear to be getting addressed.

Cydia users should automatically be prompted that a new version is available upon firing it up. Go on a head and get the 1.1 update and let us know what you think!
