In this article we will try explain several things about Cydia so you never have doubts about the app store launched by Saurik now more than 8 years ago.

What is Cydia and what is it for

Apple presented its app store at the Keynote of the WWDC in 2008 and named it App Store, whose direct translation is “App store” (which seems not to be as good as in English). IOS restrictions made developers want to "break the cage" that avoided making some modifications to the iPhone. Saurik decided to launch a alternative app store where we could download applications not allowed in the App Store and other modifications, such as SBSettings (initially called BossPrefs) or Winterboard, which helps us to add themes (skins or skins) to our iPhone.

How to download Cydia for iPhone 4 and earlier

Download Cydia for iPhone 4s and iOS 6

The best for download and install Cydia on iPhone 4 and earlier is to look for the necessary tool for the version of iOS that this device uses:

  • If you have iOS 7.x installed, you will have to go to the Pangu website and download its Pangu 7 tool.
  • If you happen to have iOS 7.0-7.0.x and do not trust Chinese hackers (which would not be the first), you can also use the latest tool launched by the team of hackers evad3rs that you have available on their website.
  • If you made the uncritical decision to stay on iOS 6, you can use the p0sixspwn tool.
  • For other versions, consult the page
  • You can also try and install Cydia Installer, a tool for Windows that Cydia is supposed to download. In any case, it is something that I do not recommend.

Compatible Models

The quick answer is: everyone. Any iOS device, be a iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad, is compatible with Cydia. Of course, not all devices are compatible with all versions of Cydia.

In any case, if we jailbreak an iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad, entering Cydia we will see if you can update to the latest version. If you can't, the latest version that we can install from Cydia is the latest version compatible with that device.
