Saurik has announced the release of the latest beta of Cydia 1.1.28 for those with jailbroken devices running iOS 10, and more specifically iOS 10.2.
Jay Freeman as part of the progression towards getting Cydia 1.1.28 into a stable position to remove the beta tag, this latest release includes a bundle of bug fixes and improvements. Most importantly thrown heavy focus on eradicating some of the more service affecting issues that have been experienced by those fortuned enough to have a jailbroken device running iOS 10.
This latest beta of Cydia 1.1.28 released now. Here’s what you need to know is it’s still in beta even though it is being progressed rapidly – comes with a whole host of bug fixes, but still also ships with a number of known issues, some of those are relatively serious and vulnerable, and some which will literally never be experienced by end-users.
A number of patches have also been implemented in the eighth and ninth betas of this version of Cydia, all there to completely remove serious crashes back in SpringBoard which have been experienced by a variety of users who already have upgraded to Cydia 1.1.28. As an example:
In the ninth beta, I fixed another semi-deterministic crash some users were experiencing, as well as modified APT to guarantee it did not decide “engh, I don’t really need to check this repository for updates” when it really should (and was thereby not seeing updates for repositories that have Release but do not use hashes).
In fact, Freeman has also ironed out a number of issues which slowed the Cydia experience down, both in terms of the app launching from SpringBoard, and the in-app experience of interacting with repositories and packages. Crashes can be more pain when they occur, but the similar slow experience is equally as frustrating when you’re interacting with the platform on a daily basis. Overall, the latest available version should however be much more pleasurable and enjoyable environment to interact in.
For those that are jailbroken using the latest version of yalu102, but are still on the older 32-bit version of Cydia 1.1.27, will actually force that upgrade to the latest version manually by following our previous guide on the topic: Update To 64-bit Cydia 1.1.28 After iOS 10.2 Jailbreak, Here’s How.
Once again mentioned, Cydia 1.1.28 is still in beta release which means some issues are still there to be expected. If you don’t want to deal with any potential problems that you may run into, stick to the default Cydia 1.1.27 that comes packaged with yalu102 jailbreak for iOS 10.2.
