Zebra, a popular alternative package manager for various jailbreak tools, was updated to version 1.1.30 on Monday with a slew of bug fixes and improvements.
Citing the change log, users can expect the following differences in Zebra version 1.1.30:
- Address an issue with packages failing to install when they use the “finish” file descriptor, also known as the
$CYDIAvariable, to signal to the package manager that the package requires a respring, reboot, etc.
- Now supports search queries of only one character in some languages — previously, Zebra always required at least two characters for performance reasons because otherwise entering a single character could have resulted on a performance-heavy results list of thousands of packages, but not all languages have this many packages and those languages now support single character search results.
- Fix a crash when tapping the “Add to Photos” option after tapping and holding on an image in the package depiction page.
- Fix the app icon settings not displaying any app icons in the rootless edition of Zebra.
- Fix an issue where .deb files might disappear from their original file location after being installed through Zebra.
