    Hi everyone. Cydia is showing me that I have available upgrades. My question is, is there someplace that I can see the changelist for each component? For example, it says that there is an update for my RetinaPad. If I tap it, it just gives me info on RetinaPad, not the update.

    Does anyone know how to find this out?

    Scroll down on the app page after you've clicked on the update in Cydia. Many devs give you a description of what's in that revision. Some do a complete change log. Others say nothing at all.

    When in doubt, don't update right away. Either post here or wait a few days for others to post with potential problems. If there's a major issue, it tends to show up here pretty quickly.

    I also never update all at once, but rather, do one update at a time. It takes a lot longer, but on a day like today, where I had eleven updates, I'd just as soon take the time to do them individually, and test each in between. That way, if something goes wrong, I have a better shot at knowing which update is the problem.
