End Of An Era, Saurik Disabled The Ability To Purchase Tweaks On Cydia

The original iOS' features are not comprehensive, and numerous advanced features require jailbreaking by installing tweaks. At the time, after the iPhone or iPad was jailbroken, a dedicated App Store, the so-called "Cydia", was installed. without a doubt, Cydia has become the symbol of jailbreak, where users can download or purchase a variety of jailbreak tweaks to personalize their iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.



However, its history is about to end, Cydia's founder Saurik commented on Reddit this Friday that Cydia has been unable to generate any revenue and has had bugs, so he has now disabled the purchases on Cydia. In addition, Saurik has decided to completely shut down the App Store for jailbroken devices in the future, and he himself said that there is no enthusiasm for continued maintenance.

Saurik said: "the reality is that I wanted to just shut down the Cydia Store entirely before the end of the year, and was considering moving the timetable up after receiving the report (to this weekend); this service loses me money and is not something I have any passion to maintain.” He states there will be a more formal post next week with more details about the future of the Cydia.

Currently, Cydia still exists, the purchase option on Cydia has been turned, which means that users can no longer purchase items from the Cydia store. We can still download tweaks from the purchase record or purchase it from a third-party source, it is just no longer via BigBoss.
