Zebra v1.0.3 released with speed and reliability improvements, bug fixes

If you’ve been tinkering with the new Zebra package manager on your jailbroken iOS device ever since it was officially released to the public on New Year’s Day, then you should know that there’s a new update out as of Sunday morning that you won’t want to miss.

Zebra version 1.0.3 is now available, and unlike the tiny update released just a couple of days ago, this one is jam-packed with a plethora of bug fixes and improvements that should make it more reliable in daily use.

Citing the change log published on the project’s official GitHub page, Zebra v1.0.3 incorporates the following changes:

Changed in this version:

– Zebra will now run uicache with multiple arguments using -p when multiple app bundles are being installed/removed
– Improved speed of listing files installed by a package
– Improved reliability of looking up whether or not a package requires uicache or the SpringBoard to be restarted

Fixed in this version:

– Fixed an issue where cell separators on the home screen would not be the correct color when changing the theme
– Fixed an issue where the navigation bar would occlude some content on iOS 10 in the source sections page
– Fixed an issue where the Changes tab package list would scroll down a bit when using swipe actions in that tab
– Fixed some missing localization strings
– Fixed an issue where the Accent Color setting would not automatically apply everywhere when changing it
– Fixed an issue where the Queue would appear randomly when changing theme
– Fixed an issue where devices could not respring on iOS 10 and below
– Fixed an issue where the “Install” button would not update after removing a package from the Queue
– Fixed an issue where the “Done” button would not appear in the Console after pressing cancel during a download
– Fixed an issue when adding Bingner/Elucubratus to Zebra, it would opt to not use a HTTPS connection
– Fixed a crash when trying to observe scrollView’s height in the depiction page
– Fixed a crash when trying to add a package to the Queue
– Fixed a crash that occurred when trying to determine whether or not a package required the SpringBoard to be restarted/uicache to be run

Many of these bug fixes were quickly implemented by the project’s developer shortly after being reported by users. That said, it seems that the turnaround time for support is rather good for Zebra, and this is something worth noting for those who feel like Cydia doesn’t receive enough updates.

If you’re using the Zebra package manager already, then you will find the latest update after opening your preferred package manager and refreshing your sources. Upon finishing, the update can be installed from the Changes tab.

If you haven’t installed Zebra yet, and would like to, then you can follow the directions listed in our detailed step-by-step tutorial explaining how to do so. Zebra can be installed on any jailbroken iOS 9, 10, 11, 12, or 13 device.
