    ● redesigned stashing page
    ● faster scrolling of table views
    ● bug fixes
    ● ads no longer break the package views until restart
    ● much better queueing UI
    ● stabler refreshing bar

    iPad improvements:
    ● landscape
    ● popovesr
    ● modal views that cover only a portion of the screen
    ● less annoying errors with bad internet connections downloading packages
    ● updated section mappings, less typo'd sections

    This version of Cydia is included in the latest release of RedSn0w and can also be downloaded directly from here: http://apt.saurik.com/cydia/debs/cydia_1.0.3366-1_iphoneos-arm.deb

    Now the question is did anyone install this new Cydia version over the old one and would it cause any problems or conflicts?
    Im on 4.1 and dont feel like going to 4.2 yet but would like to get the newest version of Cydia.

    I would like to do the same. I don't know what's up but my current cydia is excruciatingly slow

    Albeit it's kind of old news, although it hasn't been publicized a lot.

    I installed it a few days ago. It's pretty amazing. Seems like the reloading screens are a minimum of three times faster, which was always the killer for me.

    Edit: I'm still on 4.1 on a 3GS (old-bootroom). No problems, no conflicts. Everything is better. Love it. Only hard part was remembering how to SSH deb files onto my iPhone again (an easy google).

    so if I'm on an iphone 4 on 4.1 (limerain), how do I get this?

    I read somewhere that there is a newer version than the one mentioned in this thread - 1.0.3366.7.

    Sorry, i don't know the details of the newer version and don't have the site where you can download it from, but google can probably point you to it's details and location.

    Aloha!

    Correction: note, couldn't vouch for the reliability or legitimacy of the version i referred to above. It's not on Saurik's site, so must not be legitimate.

    Staying on 3.1.3 on my 3G. Not yet seen many speed tests of iOS 4.2.1 on a 3G.

    I presume I just wait and see if the new Cydia comes up for dl when opening the Cydia app?

    I installed this new Cydia a few days ago. I'm jailbroken with 4.1 and I'm running baseband 01.59.00 without any problems. I'm really liking the faster loadings.

    Download the .deb with Safari Download manager and install with iFile.

    can't you just reinstall a custom 4.1 and jb it w/ the new redsn0w to have the newest Cydia? I know that monday they were still signing 4.1... I have 4.2.1 w/old BB on my 3GS and will tell you that there is a speed difference significant in the newest Cydia :cool:

    The loadings are tons better. It appears when searching for packages, it doesn't lag as much. Good stuff.

    On my 3G on 4.1 there was no speed increase. But it most likely will be better when I re-install iPhoneVM.

    Yes, searching is greatly improved! I'm not getting any of the keyboard lag that would happen with previous versions. Great update Saurik!

    I have a question. After you install it with iFile and the file is just sitting there, do you just leave it and exit or can you delete the deb file after you install it?

    Also, I dont think you even need Safari Download Manager to install. If you go to the website on your iPhone, it will just ask you "Open in 'iFile" and you click that and it imports right into iFile. From there, click Install and you're done!

    Where can I get it from? The repo that hosted it last year seems to be away with the fairies.

    i can vouch for this way. i just went to the site, click on the download link, it says 'open in ifile' and pick 'installer'. did the install and works great. i reboot the phone anyways.
