    As per many Saurik's comments from multiple forums, please do not update to Cydia 1.1.2 as it looks like this were just changes made for jailbreaking purposes. Stay away from the update.

    "This /purposely-unreleased/ version of Cydia has only one major change in it (and four tiny things, only one of which is user-visible: the keyboard thing under Search): a modification to “stashing” (the step where your filesystem is rearranged during the initial jailbreak process) made for comex, who recently has been talking about his new platform for handling these things.

    This change has not been tested on devices that are already jailbroken (well, I did a cursory test for 2 minutes, but that was all), and users upgrading to this version of Cydia do so at their own peril: Cydia might end up in a “permanent re-stash” loop, or force a stash when the user has purposely previously tricked the mechanism not to (leading to a corrupted filesystem)."

    If you have already updated, here's the instructions on how to revert back to 1.1.1:

    Yeah it's a shame someone on modmyi jumped the gun posting this "news" blurb a couple days ago.

    When Cydia is ready to be updated Cydia will let you know through the app and you'll upgrade it that way. You don't need to download a .deb and ssh the thing on to the phone.

    I guess someone over there has nothing better to do with their life than look at server logs to have noticed this being uploaded.
