As soon as the Pangu team surprised us with the iOS 9 jailbreak, all the jailbreak lovers started using the Pangu 9 tool to get Cydia on their iOS device. But another big surprise here was that Saurik probably knew that the jailbreak was coming and had pushed out an update for Cydia to provide full iOS 9 support. And hardly after a few days of Cydia version 1.1.25 being released, Saurik has provided another update to Cydia and now the version goes up to 1.1.26. We expect this update to be just a minor one.

In case you already don’t know, Cydia Installer now moves the jailbreak content from the Applications in the System partition to the User partition. This directly means that Cydia will be required to perform a Preparing Filesystem right after the new update is installed. Saurik had thus included Preparing Filesystem in the new update to go well with the new jailbreak, because he had not included it with the version of the Cydia Installer that was included by default inside the jailbreak.
After installing the latest Cydia Installer version 1.1.26, you will notice that some of your System partition storage space is reclaimed. It won’t be a big deal for those who do not install tons of jailbreak content on their device, but it will surely be a positive change for those who use space-consuming apps and tweaks. The Preparing Filesystem might take a but longer for those who have a lot of content installed.
- Cydia allows you to install jailbreak tweaks and apps to your jailbroken iOS device. You can use the Pangu 9 jailbreak tool to jailbreak your iOS 9 – iOS 9.0.2 device.
- You can even Downgrade Cydia packages to the previous stable version in case the present version is buggy.
- A feature called TweakHub in Cydia recommends new tweaks to the user according to the type of apps and tweaks installed in the device.
Saurik has stated that it was a smart move that he sent out this new update before Apple closed the signing window for iOS 9.0.2. iOS 9.1 has been released and it has patched the exploits used in the Pangu 9 jailbreak [at the time of writing this article]. Those who experienced stashing errors may have not other option left but to restore their device, which would result in an unjailbreakable device in case the signing window for iOS 9.0.2 closed. Any such potential issues were to be avoided by Saurik, hence he released Cydia Installer version 1.1.26 before iOS 9.2 could be released.
