Today, Cydia creator Jay Freeman (Saurik) released an update to his tool Cydia Impactor, which allows the signing and installing of .ipa files to iOS devices.
With it comes a new tool called Cydia Extender, which allows installing and re-signing of .ipa files on-device. However, don’t get too excited by this news; it is not the solution to the 7-day signing problem that many have been waiting for.

Saurik launched a duo of essential upgrades for Cydia Installer on Wednesday that are expected to “drastically improve” the performance of Cydia for users of various languages; Chinese in particular.
Version 1.1.30, which superseded version 1.1.29 just hours later with an additional bug fix, is available now. It is recommended all jailbreakers grab the update the next time they find themselves launching Cydia, if they haven’t already. Read More

Those of you who have jailbroken in recent times, with either yalu1011, yalu102, Home Depot, or Pangu 9.2-9.3.3, can’t have failed to notice a new feature of these tools which jailbreakers never had to contend with before.
I’m not referring to the semi-untether here, but rather to the installing of a profile on your device which signs the jailbreak app for a certain amount of time. iOS 10 jailbreakers particularly have felt the irritation of this limitation, but all that may be about to change, based on some tentative words from Cydia creator Jay Freeman (Saurik).
At the same time, other workarounds for the seven-day signing limit have started surfacing; these are almost all a bad idea, and should be avoided.

The new update, which comes with the build number 0.9.6000, is available right now from Cydia’s Changes tab after refreshing your sources, so long as you haven’t already updated it yet. Read More

Thursday saw the release of a new build of Cydia from its creator Jay Freeman (Saurik). Coming in at version 1.1.28, the build is marked as a beta, designed for use with the fledgling iOS 10.1.x jailbreak from Luca Todesco.
Although I still do not recommend the average user to jailbreak with Yalu for 10.1.x, those who are confident doing so and have already taken the plunge may find this Cydia release improves their experience running the jailbreak slightly. Read More

Saurik has launched an update for the Cydia Eraser tool on Thursday so that it can now be used to un-jailbreak iOS 9.3.3 if you used the Pangu jailbreak tool.
The timing couldn’t be better, as Apple recently released iOS 9.3.4 and is expected to close the iOS 9.3.3 signing window in the near future. Read More
