Cydia has become a necessity for most iOS users around the world since it gives us the possibility to install cracked and free Cydia apps on our devices in order to customize them. This amazing third-party app store is pretty similar to Apple’s App store mostly since it provides users the possibility to install and customize their devices with plenty of new features and options.
Before I go any further, I want to tell you a couple of things regarding this useful app platform. First of all, the only way in which you can download Cydia Store on your device is to start the jailbreak. For this, you have the possibility to make use of various jailbreak tools, which give a safe and simple experience. However, for iOS 7-based devices, we can make use of Evad3s’ tool called Evasi0n.
During the jailbreak process, users will be prompted with a message asking to select Cydia to be installed. Click on the empty box in from of Cydia and the app platform will be installed automatically during the process. At the end of it, you will be able to see Cydia icon placed on the home screen. It is the time to launch Cydia for the first time, and a reboot is completed.
However, since it is the first time using Cydia, you need to wait until Cydia uploads its packages. This may take a couple of minutes, but it is mandatory in order to be able to have access to all those great Cydia apps and tweaks.
In order to understand Cydia better, you need to know what Cydia repos are used for. Any app displayed in Cydia platform is hosted in a certain repository. Therefore, when you access the app, you will head over to that respective repo. In the beginning, Cydia has only three sources by default. You can always add new ones by heading over to Sources, where you have to add the respective URL for that source you want to add.
Each source has a limited number of apps and tweaks to offer. When you do not find the app you want within the sources you have installed on Cydia, you can always add new ones. It is worth mentioning that if you want to install cracked Cydia apps and tweaks; you need to install different sources, sources that replace the famous Installous platform for cracked apps.
In the last part, I want to tell you how you can download Cydia store and fix it in case you experience a couple of problems. Some users complained about the fact that Cydia crashes each time they launch it, or, in some cases, Cydia displayed an error when it starts. In this case, all you have to do is to reinstall the application. Head over Saurik’s official website, and click on the Install button to reinstall and download Cydia Store. This is all. You can now use this amazing platform to get all those useful Cydia apps, tweaks, themes, games, mods and wallpapers.
