Cydia Update For iOS 4.2 Coming Soon!


Last week, it was announced that the jailbreak tool for iOS 4.2 would be delayed since Cydia needed an update to work on the latest iOS.

However, it looks like things will be alright as iPhone Dev Team member MuscleNerd has announced via Twitter that Cydia creator Saurik and jailbreak dev Chpwn are focusing on a Cydia update for iOS 4.2.

Both @chpwn and @saurik have been burning the midnight oil prepping for updated version of Cydia

No updated changes have been announced yet but some of the rumors point to faster loading speeds and interface enhancements.

So for those that jailbreak their devices, it seems that we’ll be good to go soon after the iOS 4.2 release.

    Hopefully we’ll get some eye-candy (Rock like) graphics/webpage. Cydia visually is very monotonous. I noticed faster loading speeds once Rock & Cydia were integrated but an improvement to load time is ALWAYS welcomed!

    From what I hear, this is the only change to Cydia’s UI, besides getting landscape mode on the iPad. Most of the changes are behind the scenes, to improve performance.

    With the increase of paid apps in cydia do we get the right to be upset if we can’t update?
