    Cydia 1.1.16 fixes bugs on iOS 8: reinstalling Cydia is no longer necessary after post-Cydia "Restore from Backup", and Cydia will refresh data after 15+ minutes of backgrounding instead of 15+ seconds

    Yay for making Cydia work better! Here is the changelog for this release, quoted for your convenience:

    Cydia 1.1.16 is a bug fix release

    iOS 8 "Restore from Backup" Fixed

    This update fixes an important bug in Cydia 1.1.14 and 1.1.15 on iOS 8: if you used "restore from backup" in iTunes after your first use of Cydia, you needed to reinstall this package to make sure your device could safely reboot with a passcode enabled.

    It should now be OK to use the iTunes "restore from backup" feature without needing to then reinstall Cydia Installer afterward to avoid reboot problems.

    Increase iOS 8 Multitask Timeout

    Cydia automatically refreshes the package catalog if it was suspended too long. This timeout is now set to 15 minutes. It had previously been only 15 seconds, because that's what I was using to test this feature, and I forgot to change it back. (Doh.)

    Improved App Store Redirect Block

    The initial version of this feature turned out to only be partially effective: we have done wider testing and have improved our iTunes URL detection.

    Login Dialog on iPad Works Now

    Apparently, logging in to an account on an iPad would not reload the login dialog, making it seem like you needed to log in again?! This is now fixed.

    Now if other devs will set the timeout option to longer intervals so my App Store apps aren't always refreshing on my 6+ lol. Love the progress being made on the jailbreak. Too bad apple already patched it on 8.1.1. They theirs party keyboard fix would have been nice to have.
