How to add a repos / Sources in Cydia

Whenever you jailbreak your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch Cydia is installed on it. Cydia by default has most of the popular repositories added including the Bigboss repo, ModMyi repo etc so you don’t have to add yourself. This is very convenient and most of the time you don’t need to add any other repo or source to Cydia in order to download stuff. However there are times when you need to add a repo in Cydia to download some tweak or app that is not available on the main repositories.

Not every tweak or theme is automatically available once you jailbreak your iOS device and install the Cydia application. For certain tweaks, you’ll need to manually add its source, which is simply a web address linked to repository where the tweaks are hosted.

Generally speaking, if a tweak isn’t hosted on one of the preinstalled sources on Cydia, like the BigBoss repo, then the developer will provide you with their source.For example, iapptwweak.com/repo/.

 Adding a new repo in Cydia is pretty simple but can be tricky if you have no clue about how to do it. In this post we are going to show you how to add a repo in Cydia. The whole process will require a few steps to complete. Remember you will need an internet connection and a valid repo link to do so.

There are two ways to add Sources (Repos) in Cydia. One by Cydia itself and the other manually.

Method 1: How to Install Sources with Cydia Itself

Step #1. Open Cydia.

Step #2. Tap on Cydia icon from the bottom menu.

Step #5. The information page of the tweak will come up, tap on Install from the top right corner.

Step #6. A popup window will appear, tap on Confirm from the top right corner.

Step #7. Now wait for a few seconds. Once updating is completed, you will see Complete on the top. Tap on Return to Cydia.

This will redirect you to the source information page. That’s all. You have successfully added the source.

It is a little easy to add Sources through Cydia itself. But, there are times you will have to enter some Repos manually as they may not be listed in the Cydia list of sources.


 

Method 2: How to Add Repos/Sources to Cydia Manually

Step #1. Launch Cydia.

Step #2. Tap on Sources from the bottom menu.
