Cydia repo and rebuilding apt on iOS4


It took me quite a bit of work to locate the cydia repo so that I could manually download packages. So here it is for future reference (for the most current version):

http://apt.saurik.com/dists/dude/main/binary-iphoneos-arm/debs/

or to the repo root:

http://apt.saurik.com/dists/

Installing apt7 took the following packages:

  • apt7_0.7.25.3-6_iphoneos-arm.deb
  • apt7-key_0.7.25.3-3_iphoneos-arm.deb
  • apt7-lib_0.7.25.3-9_iphoneos-arm.deb
  • apt7-ssl_0.7.25.3-3_iphoneos-arm.deb
  • berkeleydb_4.6.21-4_iphoneos-arm.deb
  • curl_7.19.4-6_iphoneos-arm.deb

Word of advice: don’t hose apt on your iPhone. It makes things suck.

    Yo! Is it alright if I go a bit off topic? I am trying to view your post on my Macbook but it doesn’t display properly, do you have any suggestions? Cheers! Cornelius

      Cornelius,
      I’ve tested it on a mac desktop, my iphone, and several browsers on the PC and Ubuntu. I haven’t seen any problems. Can you describe or screenshot the problem and send it my way?
