Cydia Optimised For Jailbroken iOS 4.2 Devices

Jailbroken iOS 4.2 devices will now be able to run Cydia, as hacker Chpwn has announced that the application is now optimised and ready for use.

Chpwn has been bombarded with questions on Twitter about progress with Cydia, and replied: “it is in ready position.”

Users are now looking forward for the release of the updated iOS 4.2 on which they can test the application.

Due to many changes in the API of iOS 4.2, the Cydia application broke down and ceased to function.

With the news of a patched Cydia application already out, hackers are already prepared for the release of iOS 4.2 to the public.

The application is a graphical front end to APT software which allows users to download software from an external source other than Apple application stores.

If any software or software tweaks are unavailable at the official application stores users, can use this application to download it from another source after jailbreaking their devices.

Although Cydia is ready for use, we may still have to wait for sometimes until Comex implements a userland exploit so that Geohot’s Limera1n can extend its support beyond iOS 4.1.
