How to add a Source to Cydia.

If you have not jailbroke your iPhone, you will need to do that first. Please see our f.a.q page for more information about jailbreaking.

When you jailbroke your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, the Cydia application was added to your device automatically. It was added to your iPhone/iPod Touch’s SpringBoard with the rest of the stock applications like Calendar, Maps, Weather etc. Cydia is what you use to add more applications (games, utilities…) to your iPhone. For more information about Cydia, please see our f.a.q page.

When Cydia is added to your iPhone or iPod Touch, it only has a few sources installed. A sources is a web address linked to servers where the applications are downloaded from. For example, the BigBoss source will have different applications than the iSpazio source. If you want an application that is in the iSpazio source, you will need to add that source to Cydia.

Once a source is added to Cydia, all the applications in that source will show up in Cydia as applications available to be added (installed) on your iPhone or iPod Touch. You can find a list of all the available sources on our Sources Page.

There are two ways to add sources to Cydia. The first is to install them through Cydia itself. The second is to manually add the source to Cydia yourself. Below is a video and step-by-step guide for both.

    However there are couple of things to be followed to
    add the sheen and glow of the tiles.

    Do the regular floor cleaning
    Clean the spills as soon as they occur

    It is very crucial to clean dirt and water too as soon as they are split to prevent
    the stains. Place a doormat which helps in reduction of
    mud or dirt entering through footsteps.

    There are basically following tile floors where in one will use the tile and grout cleaning process, types of tiles
    are as follow -


    Porcelain Tile cleaning

    Porcelain tiles maintenance is not difficult if the surface
    is cleaned regularly. The surface can be vacuum cleaned every day or just
    sweep it. The wet mopping is required once in a week.

    Use of mild floor cleaners will do for the mopping.

    One can make it at home by mixing vinegar and water.

    Ceramic Tile Cleaning

    The rule is followed here as well; remove the dirt as soon as possible.
    Vacuum clean the tiles every day or a simple broom can be used.
    Plain water or the special ceramic tile cleaners can be used for
    the wet mopping.

    Stone Tile Cleaning

    One need to be careful while cleaning the tiles made of stones as they are natural minerals.

    Never use harsh floor cleaners. Sweep or vacuum clean. After using any floor cleaner use a dry mop to soak any
    type of liquid residue.

    Grout Cleaning

    Along with the tile cleaning it is very important to regularly clean the grout, i.e.
    the lines between the tiles. Hence tile and grout cleaning goes simultaneously.
    Grout is porous in nature and attracts dirt, grease etc.

    The surface looks shabby if the grout is unclean. It can also be a cause
    of mildew or mould in the damp areas like bathrooms.
    It is best to have a seal (colour or clear) on the grout which will not only protect
    the surface but also acts as an anti-fungal agent.

    to hectic working schedules. Hence we come in picture and provide the tile and grout cleaning services to our clients at a very affordable price.
    Moreover the price depends on the type of the tiles, number of tiles and size of the tiles to
    be cleaned.
