How to get Cydia on your iPhone or iPod Touch.

When you jailbroke your iPhone or iPod Touch, the Cydia application was automatically added to your iPhone. It was added to your iPhone’s SpringBoard with the rest of the stock applications like Calendar, Maps, Weather etc.

So, in order to get Cydia onto your iPhone or iPod Touch, you will first need to jailbreak your device. You can check out our f.a.q page for more information on jailbreaking your iPhone or iPod Touch.

        That’s bull. Pretty good chance the phone/ device will crash and never reopen. JailbreakIng is something that should never ever have been started. The reviews are few, but the damage that was done is so much. Look around. Just think about it. Jailbreak. Let me give you my insight. Don’t do it.

        Jailbreaking is awesome thing those who talk badly about it generally did not know what they are doing. I have had issues with Cydia and different navigational things with the unlock as I work for a cell phone company and am a little more android programmed to issues. If you are happy with your phone then you should not be looking at this blog, if not then download the jailbreak and enjoy the hassles and rewards of the average person figuring out how and what to do with the programs at hand. If you want this to be a quick fix and walk away DO NOT JAILBREAK, if you enjoy possibilities and the freedom to do customizable little things with your iPhone use absinthe 2.0 for 5.1.1 or earlier. It is an adventure and a nerds hard on but if their is nothing about your iPhone that you dont like you are just curios…… stop dont do it because there are programming steps along the way……..

  49. Maya Moulton says

    Soo i jailbroke my phone but cydia never came on my phone? what do i doo?

  50. Once you jailbreak your phone, the phone will boot up normally. Wait for it to power on successfully; you won’t see Cydia. Turn it off. Get back to redsn0w, go to “Extras”, then choose “Just Boot”. Follow the instructions from then on. If you do it successfully, Cydia will now appear in your phone along with the other apps. If not, then keep doing the “Just Boot” process.
