App Store Redirects Disrupting Cydia User Experience

Cydia is a wonderful platform where developers and iOS users can exchange new tweaks – or even sell them – and do wonders with iOS. However, Cydia is not without its own faults. The repositories that host iOS and jailbreak tweaks are now flooded with app store redirects. Recently, it has been more and more annoying.

App store redirects aren’t really annoying if they happen once every now and then (or at least once every time we want to install a new tweak or jailbreak app.). The problem is, the current state of Cydia forces users to deal with five – sometimes more – app store redirect popups. Read More...

Consider not updating to the newest version of iOS 8
