Want to speed up Cydia for your iPhone and iPod Touch read on.
One thing that I hate about Cydia is its loading time which is painfully slow, now Jay Freeman has released essential Cydia APT upgrades to Cydia Package Installer which is expected to speed up Cydia by decreasing the loading times and improving overall performance.
How to speed up Cydia Loading
Go to Cydia –> Changes –> Upgrade the following
Install APT 0.7 ( apt-key) and APT 0.7 Strict(Lib)
After I installed the upgrades and restarted springboard, there was not much to talk home about, there was only a little bit speed improvement, or may be its because of my iPod Touch, as its space is almost fully occupied. Let me know if the updates improve the Cydia speed for you.
If that doesn’t work, you can always install ICY which is a Cydia Alternative and is considerably faster.
