Download and install Cydia on iPhone or iPod touch

Written By Hans Berger on Friday, December 25, 2009 | 6:01 AM

Cydia is an iPhone app created by Saurik. It allows you to download iPhone apps that are not officially available in the Apple App Store. If you recently performed a jailbreak, follow the Cydia guide below.
Cydia


1. Jailbreak you iPhone or jailbreak your iPod touch using blackra1n first. After installing Cydia through blackra1n, you should see the above Cydia icon on your homescreen. Tap the Cydia icon to launch it.

2. When Cydia first launches it will ask you to choose what mode you want to use. Just tap User (Graphical Only). You can go back and change this later if you wish to.

Cydia Essential Upgrades

3. Cydia will now check for updates and present you with the above prompt saying something like 2 Essential Upgrades. Tap the "Upgrade Essential" button.

Cydia Upgrade - Confirm

4. Now Cydia will ask you to confirm your selection. Tap the Confirm button in the top right.

Cydia - Restart

5. Cydia will now start updating. Once the update is complete it will show a "Complete" message. You will need to restart Cydia, tap the Close Cydia (Restart) button.

That's it, now Cydia is installed on your iPhone or iPod touch!

I have Windows 7 and a iphone 3GS and I downloaded blackra1n on my PC. When I hit the "make it ra1n" button to download it, a popup came up that said "blackra1n has stopped working". Anybody know how to fix this so I can put blackra1n on my iphone?

I am from India and I have just brought an iphone. I am not really tech savvy but whatever I have read online. I think my phone is unlocked as I am able to call and msg. But the installer application is not there thru which I get cydia. Do I need to jailbreak my phone to get cydia?is there any chance my phone would get locked if I try doing it?and what is easiest and risk-free method to get it? My phone version is3.1.2. Any help would be appreciated.please help.
