Cydia update v1.1.32 resolves a known app crashing issue

Cydia, the default package manager installed alongside the checkra1n and unc0ver jailbreak tools, received a minor update last night that brought it up to version 1.1.32.

Checkra1n co-developer Sam Bingner broke the news about the update on /r/jailbreak, noting that this release is officially no longer marked a beta since the update fixed the last known issue with the app.

From what we can gather, Cydia v1.1.32 resolves a crash that could happen when opening the app if there was a corruption in the metadata.cb0 file. With the crashing issue now resolved, users should find Cydia to be substantially more stable than before.

Sounds good, at least in theory, however.

A small number of users commenting beneath the post reported how they were still experiencing Cydia crashes. It remains to be seen, however, if this is being caused by third-party extensions, the use of third-party package managers, or modified system files.

If you’re using either the checkra1n or unc0ver jailbreak and have Cydia installed on your device, then it’s recommended that you install this update at your earliest convenience to take advantage of the latest bug fixes and improvements. The Cydia app may crash and be slower to reload on first launch after installation, however this is considered normal.
