How to Add a Repo in Cydia?


Downloading tweaks from Cydia is easy but sometimes these tweaks are available on their respective private repositories only. Developers add their tweaks to their repositories only so you have to add the repo and then download the tweak from it. By these repositories you can download the paid or free tweaks. Adding a new repo in Cydia isn’t that hard and below are two methods to add a repo in Cydia.

Method #1:

This first method is done through Cydia app and doesn’t require the link for the repo. *Cydia is a must for this method.

  1. Launch Cydia from Home Screen.
  2. At the bottom of the screen you will find a menu, from there tap on star icon.
  3. Now from the next screen tap on More Package Sources box which you can find below the Tss Center(shsh & APTicket) box.
  4. A list of sources will come up, from there select the required source/repo or any repo that you wish to install.
