Deleted BigBoss Repo – Add Source URL

Jailbreaking gives us freedom from the restriction that Apple places on us, the ability to modify our iPhones or iPads in ways that make them more functional or better to look at. One part of jailbreaking is the installation of Cydia, the jailbreak equivalent of the iOS app store and that includes a number of default sources.

Sources, or repositories, are the storage places for tweaks within Cydia and one of the most popular of the default ones is BigBoss. However, on very rare occasions, BigBoss doesn’t get downloaded or, when it does, it gets accidentally deleted. There are a couple of very easy ways to get the source back into Cydia though:

Method 1 : Add BigBoss Back into Cydia

The first place to go to reinstall BigBoss is into Cydia itself, to see if it still in there or has disappeared completely:

  1. Open Cydia from your Home screen
  2. At the bottom of your screen are a number of options – tap on More Package Sources bigboss_repo_add4
  3. The next window will display a warning about installing repositories at your own risk as well as a list of sources. Look at the top of the list for BigBoss bigboss repo
  4. If it is there, just tap on it and follow the on-screen instructions to reinstall BigBoss into Cydia  cyda_ios_9_repo_source6bigboss_repo_add3

Method 2 : How to Add a Source into Cydia

If the BigBoss repository does not show up on that list, don’t panic. It is still very easy to get it back; all you need to do is add the source to Cydia:

  1. Open Cydia from your Home screen
  2. Tap on Sources cydia ios 9 source add
  3. Tap on Edit – top right of the screen cyda_ios_9_repo_source2
  4. Tap on Add cyda_ios_9_repo_source0
  5. Type in this URL exactly as it is written –
  6. Tap on Add Source and Cydia will proceed to reinstall BigBoss for you cyda_ios_9_repo_source4

Follow any onscreen instructions to complete the process and, once your iPhone has been resprung, you can go back into Cydia and start using BigBoss again.
