Jay Freeman, also known as Saurik in the jailbreak community, has finally rolled out final version of Cydia 1.1.29 for jailbroken iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices. Final version of Cydia 1.1.28 comes after a laborious beta testing period which was started back in December 2016.
For unknown, Cydia 1.1.28 is the first version of Cydia Installer which brings native support for 64-bit devices, as well as full support to iOS 10-10.2 yalu102 jailbreak.
Additionally, Cydia now uses APT 1.14~b, which is actually a “major update to the core package management logic used by Cydia. This library, which is shared with Linux distributions such as Debian and Ubuntu, is an industry standard, which Cydia has been excited to share. For purposes of performance and reliability, Cydia had a number of patches to the (rather old) copy of APT it had been using. It turns out APT’s upstream has been paying attention, and was excited to have us update.”
What’s also part of the latest Cydia release are the usual bug fixes and other under-the-hood improvements, and best of all, it even supports jailbroken devices running older iOS versions such as iOS 9, iOS 8 and even iOS 7 and below.
Full changelog of Cydia Installer version 1.1.28 can be seen in the picture below:
Aside from all this, Saurik has also enabled tweak purchases on Cydia for the latest iOS10-10.2 jailbreak, so that jailbroken on latest firmware version can now officially purchase paid packages from the Cydia store itself.

Next, tap on Refresh on top left and wait for new packages to reload. Once reloaded, Cydia will offer you an Essential Upgrade prompt, tap on Complete Upgrade to get onto the latest version.
