Jay Freeman (aka Saurik), the hacker/developer behind Cydia app which is the most important application installed on a jailbroken iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch, launches a revamped Cydia to speed up the ultra slow and painful loading times in Cydia.
Basically, the Cydia was get updated to support the recently released iOS 4.2.1 -- which most jailbreakers and unlockers are experiencing battery drain and push performance issues. Saurik said that the new Cydia is way more faster, more solid, and robust compared to the previous version of Cydia, and it’s packed with tons of bug fixes and less annoying errors with bad internet connections downloading packages.
Saurik regarding the updated Cydia:
“Some of my long term performance plans are ‘hitting pay dirt’, and Cydia is much faster than it was before; that said, it isn’t done yet: there’s one more thing that I think is going to make a huge difference that isn’t even in there yet but should be for the final release.”
Saurik has teamed up with fellow hacker to Chpwn to configure some visual/user interface issues.
