    Maybe try emailing the developer of jailbreakme.com and see what he says....it's possible he's not aware of the issue and could fix it somehow.

    Try his Twitter account maybe you'll have better luck there.

    If you find out please report back, I'm interested to know.

    I didnt even know there was an update for Cydia. I had been wondering when they were going to fix some of the issues I had seen. I just went to saurik.com, but could not find anywhere to download the app to manually install...

    Well on top of that, I don't even know how to install an update manually. I am guessing just drop cydia.app on top of the existing installation?

    So you have the old nonretina icon on your i4?
    Any other differences besides that?

    Just go here:

    http://apt.saurik.com/debs/

    Download the version 73 cydia deb file.

    SSH into the phone and type:

    dpkg -i cydia_1.0.3222-73_iphoneos-arm.deb

    You can try and autoinstall by going to:

    http://apt.saurik.com/debs/

    Download the current version of Cydia and drop the .deb into the AutoInstall folder. I forget the correct ssh path, but it's something like /Var/Mobile/Cydia/AutoInstall

    After you drop the .deb in there power cycle twice and you should have the new version of Cydia.

    *I'm assuming this works. I've used the AutoInstall folder to rollback MobileSubstrate versions. My only concern is you're using Cydia's AutoInsall feature to install a new Cydia. If nothing else it's kinda meta.

    Isn't installing Cydia over itself generally a very bad idea? It will completely wipe out your database of installed packages, which could lead to many problems down the road.

    I didn't think about that. I'm really not sure why he's not getting an update under Changes if he has the older version of Cydia.

    carefull!

    If you install Cydia over an older version it will screw up the database for the installed packages!

    If you want to reinstall try this (saved the link from an older thread I read in MR), I guess the procedure for updating would be something similar:

    http://iphoneworld.codinghut.com/2009/08/installing-cydia-over-ssh/

    Make sure of course that the file of cydia and essential are the new ones and I assume this method might work for you if you dare for an icon...

    I have the 72 version and I have no such problems with themes? Are you sure your not installing non-retina compatible themes on your iPhone 4?

    Maybe I'm confused, but I jailbroke my iPhone 4 with jailbreakme.com, and Cydia updated to 1.03222-73 more than a week ago.

    Hope saurik addresses that and puts an update for the old cydia version.

    SSH into her phone and copy the cydia.app folder to your computer. Then SSH into your phone and delete the current cydia.app folder and put in the new one.

    It should work.

    I just updated to 4.0.2 to avoid having to completely restore and re-setup my folders, as restoring from backups wont work on my ipod for some reason. So I cant test it, but it’s worth a shot.

    I really wouldn't mess around with Cydia. Perhaps restoring and re-jailbreaking would be your best option. Or you could contact Saurik and ask him why you aren't receiving the update.

    Also? Cydia should have no effect on themes. It is Winterboard which handles themes. Cydia is merely a GUI for dpkg.
