Cydia 1.1.18

Hot on the heels of the 1.1.17 release of Cydia Installer comes yet another update. This version, aptly dubbed 1.1.18, is another bug fix.

Saurik states that this bug fix is the result of another “proactive” fix for iOS 8.3 and the just released Cydia Installer 1.1.17. To download this update, simply launch Cydia and refresh. You should be automatically prompted to install the update.

Here is the full change log:

A “proactive” fix for iOS 8.3 added in Cydia 1.1.17 caused SpringBoard to loop up if users killed Cydia using the iOS task switcher. This fix is designed to fix an issue that should be present on iOS 8.3, but TaiG’s jailbreak seems to provide a workaround in the form of a kernel patch. This will be investigated for later releases, but in the mean time the fix has been removed.

So, in a nutshell, this fix is a fix for a fix. If you’ve been having the boot loop issue described in saurik’s notes, then I highly advise you to update ASAP. Even if you haven’t experienced the issue, you should update.

Share your thoughts and observations regarding the Cydia installer down below. Oh, and one last thing, this has nothing to do with Cydia Substrate. The issue with Cydia Substrate will hopefully be addressed in the very near future.

    Nice . You guys are fast . Just literally updated just a few seconds ago.

    It’d be nice if an update to the GD jailbreak itself (by taig) would happen sometime this year, lol. Can’t do a whole lot without that.

    • Eikast

      Looks like the delay is due to PP stealing their jailbreak tool so they’re trying to prevent that from happening in the next version of the update tool. They get paid from 3K I believe. So if 3K’s competitor is using the same tool that 3K paid for then that will create problems.

    My phone is jailbroken (ios 8.3) and I was trying to delete some off my apps, it showed the X buttons and the shaking of the app, but my phone will not respond to anything (lock button, touch screen, ect.) I just restart my iphone. I tried once again and it still does that. Is this problem just happening to me?

  • Connor Bricker

    Jeff has been killing it the past couple of days lol

    Can’t download the update. My cydia will crash and won’t be able to open any app. If I lock the phone, the phone won’t wake up. Did a hard restart to get the phone working again.

    • Jairo Huaman

      Same thing happens with my phone. I just left it there and won’t use it until they update it.

    • Mohammed Khaled

      my phone is not even initiating hard restart. iphone 6 plus! pls help
      edit: ok har restart happened but still at apple logo!

  • Ben Coughlin

    I am having issues with jailbreaking at 60%. The injection takes forever like hours. I’ve tried alot and its still not gone past 60%, any had the same issue that could guide me to prevent it freezing again?

    • disqus_6bcHVmKl86

      I had the same problem and this fixes it.

      I copied this from a reddit user.

      ”This worked for me. After it failed at 60%, I tried the hard reset, still stuck at 60%. Then I aborted the jailbreak, rebooted my computer, ran TaiG as admin, it got to 60% really fast. Then I did the reboot trick again, and then waited about 5 minutes and it finished.”

      Hope this will help for you!

      We have an article, several already for this and it isn’t this one. I came to this article to read about Cydia 1.1.18 and issues with that. There are already hundreds of complaints about the jailbreak elsewhere. Please go there and post about this problem. It keeps the comments on this article from turning into a complete mess.

        Don’t be a jerk

    • Lordrootman

      i was able to jailbreak iPad air 2 air 1 6plus less than 5minutes

    • MaRz Franco

      Ben. Leave taig open at 60%. Hold the home and off button till blackout, then slide to unlock and keep on home screen. Click on the taig box on the windows machine and it should finish

  • Glenn DolFan Baptista

    I’m getting this when I refresh

  • Glenn DolFan Baptista

    And this when I try to upgrade ? I’m running 8.1 of that matters ?

  • Glenn DolFan Baptista

    Also is it worth it for me to update to 8.3. I’m jailbroke on 8.1. I don’t plan on using an apple watch so what else would I be missing ? Any thoughts ?

    • KinkyNothing

      You ‘re just missing the Apple Watch bloatware. If the app switcher bug isn’t frustrating you, stay where you are.

      • Glenn DolFan Baptista

        Not even sure what the app switcher is

      • Hi

        double click home 🙂

      • Glenn DolFan Baptista

        I’m talking about the bug that he is talking about. I don’t have no problem at all

      • Bugs Bunnay

        i’m on 8.1 jailbroken too. nothing seems to be out of the ordinary and the app switcher on mine is bugless. i’m just sitting here with popcorn and 2 liter soda (no ice) after work reading all these 8.3 jb fails. nothing in 8.3 interests me so i’m staying on 8.1. I might go for 8.4.

      • KinkyNothing

        Try closing 3 apps at once and you’ll understand. Then again it might be a 4s and 5 only issue… At least those are my devices.

      • Bugs Bunnay

        Just tried it. Nada! But that’s not a feature I would even use. Never found the need to kill 3 apps at once.

      • KinkyNothing

        Then absolutely stay on 8.1 my friend!

      • Bugs Bunnay

        U bet cha!

    • :D

      It’s supposed to be more stable, but I don’t know if iOS 8.3 jailbroken would be stabler than iOS 8.1 jailbroken, even after everything’s settled. I know that third party keyboards are better supported and the Wi-Fi dropping issue gets fixed.

      Other than stability improvements and bug fixes, all I can think of is the new emoji, if that matters to you?

      I’d update if I were you because soon after Apple release iOS 8.4 next week they’ll stop signing iOS 8.3 and you’d no longer be able to update. Unless you’re really busy, it’s best to just update while you still can.

      I’m waiting it out for a few days though – mobile substrate isn’t even ready yet. Be prepared to lose access to some of your tweaks if you do update and good luck with whatever you choose to do :).
