How to make Cydia show all updates for packages in the Changes tab

Show All Changes Cydia

When new packages are released in Cydia, they automatically appear at the top of the Changes tab. This is handy, because it allows you to easily find new apps and tweaks for your iOS device.

This isn’t the case when it comes to existing tweaks that have received updates. A lot of times the updates to existing tweaks are minor, but sometimes they are major. Unless you have that particular tweak installed on your device, you’re pretty much left in the dark when it comes to Cydia alerting you of the new update by default.

There is a special provision that can be enabled on a per-tweak basis so that it will always show you when updates occur—it’s under the Change Package Settings section. But a new jailbreak tweak called ShowAllCydiaUpdates forces all Cydia packages to show their updates by default.

Change Package Settings

If you’re someone who wants to be in the know about every Cydia update, then this is the perfect tweak for you. It’s definitely a go-to tweak for me, because it means I can keep tabs on everything that happens in Cydia more easily.

Once you install ShowAllCydiaUpdates, every Cydia package will have its Show All Changes switch in its Change Package Settings section enabled.

ShowAllCydiaUpdates isn’t for everyone, but if you’re bent on keeping up with every single change in Cydia, it’s by far the easiest way to do so. You can find the tweak available for free on Cydia’s BigBoss repo.
