iPhone Jailbreak for Beginner #1 – How to use Cydia

December 12, 2008 — by Simon Ng142

Last time, I mentioned I will write up a series of blog posts for jailbreak beginner to answer the question – What’s next after you jailbreak the iPhone? This is the 1st article for jailbreak beginner series that helps you unleash the power of jailbreak iPhone.

Cydia is the 1st Stop after Jailbreak

With iPhone Jailbreak, Cydia will be the first application you need to know and start with. One of top reasons to jailbreak iPhone is to enpower it to install third-party applications. And, Cydia, developed by Jay Freeman, is the heart of all. You may consider Cydia as the App Store for jailbreak iPhone, that lets you download and install third-party applications on iPhone.

Why Cydia and 3rd-Party applications?

As you know, since the release of firmware 2.0, Apple enables every iPhone with the game-changing App Store. Developers can put up application on App Store for every iPhone user to download. Okay then, what’s the point to have Cydia? The short answer is not every application can get through Apple’s approval process and appear in App Store. A very good example is NetShare, which tries to turn iPhone 3G into a wireless modem, that was banned by Apple for some reasons. Cydia is here to fill the gap and lets you download other 3rd party applications that you probably can’t find on App Store.

Launching Cydia for the very first time

Cydia is very easy to use and manage. If you know how to use App Store, you’ll have no difficulties with Cydia. The first time you launch Cydia, you’ll be asked to select the type of filter:

  1. User (Graphical Only)
  2. Hacker (+Command Line)
  3. Developer (No filter)

For normal user, you can just set the filter to “User”. With this setting, Cydia will filter out those applications which you’re not interested.

Followed by the filter setting, you may be prompted to upgrade some essential packages. Just go ahead to upgrade it. This makes sure you’re using the latest version of Cydia.

A Glance at Cydia

Okay, now you should be in Cydia. Let’s have a quick glance at Cydia interface. Cydia offers an intuitive interface for you to manage application packages:

Home – The home screen shows the latest news of Cydia. You’ll also find featured packages, sources information, user guide and other developer-related information here.

Section – You can find all the available applications for download here. Application packages are organized into specific categories.

Changes – What’s the new application just released on Cydia? “Changes” shows you the latest release available and also alerts you for any application upgrade.

Manage – Keep track with all the installed package. You can use “Manage” to upgrade / uninstall packages. Also, it is the place to add / remove Cydia source (will cover more later on).

Search – Search for application in Cydia

How to install an application in Cydia

So, how do you install an application in Cydia? Pretty straightforward.

  1. First, locate the application package. Say, MxTube in featured application.
  2. Just tap “Install” button and then tap “Confirm” to confirm the installation
  3. And Cydia then download the package & install it automatically.

Yes, it’s so simple.

How to upgrade / uninstall an application in Cydia

As said, all installed packages can be found under “Manage”. To upgrade / uninstall an application,

  1. Tap “Manage” and then “Packages”.
  2. Select the package you want to uninstall or upgrade.
  3. Tap “Modify” and then “Remove” to uninstall the application package. If an upgrade is available, Cydia will also show you with an “Upgrade” option. Just tap on to upgrade the application.

How to add repository source in Cydia

Application in Cydia are hosted by different repositories. From time to time, you may add new repository into Cydia. Say, you find a new repository URL (e.g. http://ispaziorepo.com/cydia/apt) which provides great iPhone themes. And you want to install those themes. To make those applications available in Cydia, you have to install the repository first.

As long as you know the repository URL, add a new repository is very straightforward.

  1. Tap “Manage”
  2. Then tap “Source”
  3. Tap “Edit” and then “Add”
  4. Type the repository URL and tap “Add Source”

That’s it. Cydia will then look up the URL and retrieve any applications available from the new repository.

Cydia, by default, comes with a list of package sources (i.e. repository). You can find them in the Home screen of Cydia. Just tap on anyone of them and install.

That’s pretty much I want to cover for Cydia. Go ahead and enjoy Cydia. Don’t forget to download Cycorder that powers your iPhone with Video Recorder.

    1. I have an iPhone 3G sim free legally and system 2.2. Should I download as well, when wanting to jailbreak my iPhone, the component:
    2.2.0 (3G): iPhone1,2_2.2_5G77_Restore.ipsw

    2. And the last one. My iphone was legally simfree in France. I updated the system via iTunes to 2.2.

    When Apple will release the 2.3 version. Will I be able to update it via iTunes if my iPhone is jailbroken?

  • Bill

    Is Cydia for Windows too?

    • rando

      no you dumbass it’s for iPhone

      • mhil

        hey rando chillax, bill’s just asking. Well thanks for all the information this site really helped me a lot..

        • sean

          rando you dumbass i think bill got his answer before feburary 21, 2010 when he asked it like 5 years ago

  • Rik,

    If you want to jailbreak iPhone 3G, you can check out this post for detailed information. And, for your 2nd question, when you upgrade to iPhone 2.3 in future, you’ll have to jailbreak your iPhone again. That’s required as Apple’s firmware upgrade will make the existing jailbreak obsolete.

    • mani

      how can i get free jail break my i phone if u email me plz [email protected] plz every help me plz

      • @mani,

        You can use either blackra1n (for OS 3.1.2) or Spirit (for OS 3.1.3) to jailbreak your iPhone.

        • azam

          simon ng,..
          i just wnt to know..jail brak first or installing cydia…if want installing cydia whre can i get that?? sorry poor english..thx u

        • rando

          you dickheads Spirit (untethered) is better than blackra1n and it also works for 3.1.2 so just shut up about shit u dont know

          now (2011) use greenpois0n rc6 – pwns just about every device out there (except for 1st gen)

          tons better than the laggy/buggy shit Spirit was

  • joegrip1

    I used your instructions for the jailbreak and unlock (2G), it worked fine…. but when I put in someone else’s sim card to check the unlock it came up with a message; sim card not recognised connect to itunes. Is the phone not unlocked? Do I have to ‘activate’ on itunes with every different sim?

  • kleo

    quickpwn it again…
    that happened to me too. it did not unlock the 1st 2 times…

  • Chris

    is there a way to get cydia without a computer?

  • @Chris,

    No, you need to jailbreak iPhone using QuickPwn / PwnageTool on either Windows or Mac.

    • rando


  • Theo

    i know this must seem really stupid but when i first started i accepted the 4 essential upgrades and then cancelled it because it was taking too long and now i dont now how to get onto the cydia main screen im just stuck in the welcome to cydia bit

  • NisB

    Let me brief you first, I am using, I guess, unlocked/jailbroken iPhone 3G. On the day I baught it, I updated it through iTunes and it went onto the ‘Emergency Call’ mode and also said that Insert the valid Sim Card. It was unlocked/opened by a shopkeeper thus don’t know how and by which tools. Now, I came to know about various methods to use firmware updates without getting the phone locked by iTunes.

    I tried to restore and update through iTunes by clicking Shift Key and selecting the fiemware 2.2 (I downloaded it) but in both try a msg came that iTunes can’t do it. At the same time on the screen of my phone a Penguin comes and ‘iPhoneLinux.org’ is written below.

    Thanks to QuickPwn 2.2-1 which said click and hold the Sleep & Home button for 15 sec and the phone started again as usual.

    Now, with all this information, can you guide me to update/upgrade my phone to 2.2 where I also can use any GSM SIM and add any application (Is it unlock and jailbreak?).

    In the system the Version is 2.0.2 (5C1) & Modem Firmware is 04.05.04_G

    Please help me!!!

  • abdullah

    what shouldn’t i do on itunes after i jailbrake my iphone 3g?

    • @abdullah, here are the couple of things you need to take note:

      1. Do not restore your iPhone. Otherwise, you’ll need to jailbreak again.
      2. Suggest to turn off auto-upgrade. Do not upgrade to the latest firmware even iTunes prompts you to upgrade. For your information, the latest version of firmware that can be jailbroken is 3.0.1.

    • @Roddy,

      You’ll need to jailbreak your iPhone again. Try to download the iOS 4.1 firmware (3GS) from here and restore your iPhone using iTunes. Then you can jailbreak again by following this guide.

      Let me know if it works for you.

  • Hi, I’m hoping someone here can help me. I recently jailbroke my iPhone 4, am using Cydia, & have 2 problems I can’t seem to fix.
    First, when I tap the Phone button to make a call, I can’t dial a number using the keypad because when I try to select my keypad, it immediately jumps out of Phone mode back to the home screen & I never get so much as a glimpse of the keypad.
    Second, my contacts are invisible. They haven’t been deleted because if I do a search for a contact, I get a blank line under the correct letter of the alphabet with a left facing arrow indicating it’s found the contact & to tap the line to get all the info since it would usually show the contact name only & you’d have to tap to get the rest of the info (the gray tabs & letters that separate contacts are also visible). Once I tap the line to get the info, everything shows as normal. In fact, I can tap any line and get the info that’s on that line, I’m just not able to see what info I’m going to be viewing ahead of time since the contact lines are ‘blank’. I AM able to view the list of names/contacts in ‘My Favorites’, and in my ‘Recent Calls’ and also in ‘Voicemail’.
    These are two fairly big issues, esp not being able to access my keypad to dial out. Obviously I can & have gotten around it by adding the # to my contacts & then searching my Invisible Contacts, but it’s getting a bit ridiculous.
    I want to have the freedom to do what I want with my iPhone, but i’m just like everyone else

  • Ooops!!! I accidentally posted without finishing my last sentence!
    What I meant to say was, I want to be able to do what I want with my iPhone & not be restricted by Apple. I admit i’m new to this jailbreak stuff, but I know I can figure it out if I can find the right place out there for technical help or help for those of us who are new to this type of thing but eager to learn.
    I guess what i’m dreading with my issues is that I’m gonna end up having to UN-jailbreak my iPhone to correct them. Aargh!
    ****ONE LAST THING ~ While trying to fix it myself last night, my iPhone somehow ended up in “SAFE MODE”. DON’T ASK ME HOW, CUZ I DON’T KNOW! But when it was in “SAFE MODE”, MY KEYPAD/DIALER WAS WORKING!! AND ALL MY CONTACTS WERE VISIBLE AND WORKING JUST LIKE NORMAL!!
    But the second it was out of “SAFE MODE” it was back to being all screwed up. I hope this might help someone help me with what to do. I would be SO APPRECIATIVE to ANYONE who can help me w/o having to UN-jailbreak my phone! THANKS!

    I have an
    at&t v3.1.2 (7D11) unlocked via geohot’s blackra1n
    model mb702LL
    baseband 05.11.07

    it shows cydia, rock, snow

    snow is the only thing that works i guess cause i can use any sim

    rock never loaded
    Error Downloading Rock can’t find host …even though it’s got wifi & internet access can google anything

    Then Cydia goes through downloading, unpacking & then respringing please wait & then nothing…so basically i have a carrier unlock and thats it

    I want to go to 4.2.1 & would like to see what cydia is all about do i upgrade via itunes to 4.2.1 and then jailbreak and unlock with redsn0w or snowbreeze I ve already tried both of these and have been into DFU mode successfully but when i get to itunes it says that version is not compatible or whatever it sez …ive tried 4.2.1 & 5 custom this that looked at everybodies videos followed all the steps & nada

  • First of all I would like to say superb blog!

    I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing.
    I’ve had a hard time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out.

    I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or
    tips? Many thanks! – ABC102D.
