Cydia Adds New Manage Account Feature

Users of jailbroken iOS devices would have noticed this week that Cydia, the App Store equivalent for jailbroken apps, has been updated with a new Manage Account feature that allows users to conveniently view purchased packages from the Cydia store.

The Manage Account feature can be accessed from Cydia’s main screen under “Manage Account” and then “Installable Purchases” once you login to the Google or Facebook account that your purchases are associated with. Also, note the following points from Freeman:

  • You may have purchased a package on another account to the one logged in, Cydia cannot ‘lose’ purchases, just try logging on to another account to find such a purchase
  • Does not include packages not on the Cydia store that you purchased directly from vendor (an example would be iLocalis)
  • Some Rock purchases may not automatically show up (Freeman says he’s tried his best to automatically do this) but if you scroll down to the bottom of the “Installable Purchases” there’s a link to associating a Rock account
