Those that have ever Jailbroken an iDevice are surely familiar with Cydia, and for those that don’t know, Cydia is the software that allows the download of various apps that the App Store deemed unworthy. Many of these apps give customization abilities, Wi-Fi tethering, and other advanced features.
MuscleNerd, a rather big name in the iPhone hacker/dev community, has posted on his Twitter account that a new version of Cydia will be coming to the iOS 4.2 Jailbreak.
“Both @Chpwn and @saurik Have been burniing the midnight oil for preparing updated version of Cydia”
The new version will have a more App Store like layout on the iPhone and iPod by not having pop out windows to select various settings. The iPad will see the most dramatic change by displaying a unique iPad layout which supports a landscape view. The current iPad layout is similar to the iPhone and iPod Cydia.
The new version of Cydia will be available when the iOS 4.2 Jailbreak becomes available, which hopefully is relatively close to the Apple release of the iOS 4.2 next week.
