Update: As Saurik confirmed in the comments section, this is not an update and jailbreakers should stay away from Cydia 1.1.2.

Earlier today, Cydia 1.1.2 went live. We haven’t noticed anything major in terms of improvements, however, the only ones we’ve seen so far are some slight enhancements with search functions, and an overall slight improvement in performance, as well as a few bug fixes.

There’s no changelog present in this release either, so it’s only a small update…

You can manually download Cydia 1.1.2 here, and if you need a how-to on manually installing it, follow the guide.

Have you noticed any other changes in 1.1.2 besides performance enhancements in search? Let us know in the comments.

Saurik commented on this post and basically said this is not an update and you should stay away from Cydia 1.1.2:

This /purposely-unreleased/ version of Cydia has only one major change in it (and four tiny things, only one of which is user-visible: the keyboard thing under Search): a modification to “stashing” (the step where your filesystem is rearranged during the initial jailbreak process) made for comex, who recently has been talking about his new platform for handling these things.

This change has not been tested on devices that are already jailbroken (well, I did a cursory test for 2 minutes, but that was all), and users upgrading to this version of Cydia do so at their own peril: Cydia might end up in a “permanent re-stash” loop, or force a stash when the user has purposely previously tricked the mechanism not to (leading to a corrupted filesystem).

In short, stay away from that. Sorry for the confusion.

If you made the switch to 1.1.2, follow these instructions to downgrade back to 1.1.1 compliments of @iPodTouchiPod:

1. Get the Cydia 1.1.1 deb file via Safari Download Manager: Multiupload.com – upload your files to multiple file hosting sites!

2. Use iFile and UNARCHIVE the folder

3. Open the Cydia 1.1.1 Folder and COPY the ‘cydia_1.1.1_iphoneos-arm.deb’ file

4. Go to: /var/root/Media and PASTE the cydia deb file here

5. Now go to: /var/root/Media/Cydia/AutoInstall and PASTE the Cydia deb file here, too.

***you might have to create the Cydia and AutoInstall folders. If so, pay attention to the capitalization! You might even need to create the Media folder if it isn’t inside the /var/root/ folder***

6. Go back to the /var/root/Media folder and TAP on the Cydia deb file

7. INSTALL the Cydia deb file

8. Now REBOOT your phone.

9. You should now have Cydia!

      Thanks for the heads up..just a few mins late… Still I like beta testing..so if I read in to what you put , is this a sort of beta for a iPad 2 jailbreak..?

    • Thanks for the update!

    • littlefuter

      hey saurik would you have the original cydi 1.1.1 deb file for all the people who got cydiA 1.1.2 so we can get back to regular version?

    • OrangeSn0w

      hi jay 😀

  • thanks, I’ll try it now

  • Andrew

    To me Cydia has been more faster on 1.1.2 and I’m happy with Cydia 1.1.2 and in the future you probably have to update to Cydia 1.1.2 depends on the future firmware

  • Cristian

    Thanks for info.

    So jailbreakme beta coming?

  • Mick

    Hahaha some noob on Redmond Pie just asked why he can’t find cydia in the App Store anymore, i’d like to know when he found it before lmao

    • Ernesto Castellanos

      Haa! That’s awesome!

  • ajude

    Cool info.. Thanks .

  • ajude

    Cool info.. Thanks

  • ajude

    cool info. Thanks

  • numbnuts

    if Jay advises ‘breakers to steer clear and iDB suggest to “stay away” from it why the hell has the MediaFire link not been removed from this article?? 😐

  • Edward

    I did install it and it works perfectly, is much fast! 🙂

  • Installed it on a 3GS w FW-4.3.3 and is running with no problems
    Its snappier

  • DomPerignon

    I installed it and I don’t see any noticeable difference.

  • Don’t update! I did, and my iPod went into a recovery loop! SO. JUST. STICK. WITH. THE. OFFICIAL. RELEASE.

  • Frankie

    I’m using it and is wayyy faster. No recovery loop, i think thats just B.S.

    Somebody comes (remember here is just a plain old comment system anyone can use any name) puts the saurik name and start talking crap and everybody panics…

    Two advices:
    -I didnt see this advice in the official saurik twitter account, so i dont believe the comment.
    -This blog should use Disqus comments. Is the only way to believe in comments coming from respetable people from the scene.

    I will still use it, and as a matter of fact other iphone centric blogs recommend it as is faster (ex. iSpazio)

  • Andrew

    I was on Cydia 1.1.2 but then I just decide to downgrade back to Cydia 1.1.1 I just think that Cydia 1.1.1 is just smoother in my opinion

  • Steve

    Anyone tell me how I get the zip file onto my iPad? I have installed iFile but when I use the safari browser I’m not sure if it downloaded and which location the file is stored.

    Thanks

  • Russell

    If it shouldn’t be released, that was kind of smart to have it on JailbreakMe…
