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/.
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 #3. Cydia home screen will open, tap on More Package Sources.
Step #4. Next up,all the Cydia recommended sources will be listed. Find out the one you want to select and tap on it.
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.
Step #3. Tap on Edit from the top right corner.
(When you tap on edit, a new screen opens up wherein all the added repos are listed with red button next to them. To delete them individually, tap on the red button next to the repo you want to delete and then tap on Delete button. )
Step #4. Tap on Add from the top left corner.
Step #5. A popup will appear, enter the URL of the repo in the same and then tap on Add Source.
Now, Cydia will verify the URL. Hence, you may have to wait for a few seconds.
(When the URL gets verified, Cydia may warn you about the repo. It doesn’t do the same with every repo but if it does warn you then tap on AddAnyway.)
Step #6. Finally, Cydia will start downloading data from the source. It might take a few seconds. Once, it is done, you will see Complete on top. Tap on Return to Cydia from the bottom to return to the main screen.
Step #7. Now, you can tap on search button from the right corner and type the name of the tweak. Once you have found it, you can install it as usual.
That’s it! Depending on your need, you can repeat the above mentioned steps to add more Repositories.
