Cydia Download Free

Have you heard many iPhone users discussing Cydia? Have you searched through your app store but never been able to find it? Well the reason for that is because Cydia only becomes available to iPhone users after they jailbreak their iOS 7 devices. When you install Cydia on your iPhone, you get access to a large number of applications which aren't available in the iTunes store. You can also personalize your iPhone by changing the background of your home screen and adding custom ringtones. And the best part is that all of this is free.

There are many tweaks available on jailbroken iPhones including network extensions, modifying button actions, changing the user interface, etc. You basically gain access to a whole new world of features when you jailbreak your iPhone.

Have you ever wondered why the name Cydia was chosen? Cydia Pomonella is the scientific name of the apple worm. Now isn't that interesting?

Cydia was initially released by Jay Freeman (Saurik) in March of 2008 as an alternative to the regular found on iOS 1.1. But it was really the release of iOS 2.0 that helped Cydia become famous. And today, Cydia boasts of more than 10 % of the total iPhone user market with that number most likely to increase further since iOS 7 leaves a lot to be desired in terms of additional functionality.

So now that you know what Cydia is about, let me give you a quick run through on how to install it on your device.

Before you can use the Cydia app on your iOS 7 device, you will need to jailbreak your iPhone device. This is quite easy really. All you have to do is run a Cydia download free of charge and install it on your iPhone. The software will take care of the rest. And within 15 - 20 minutes, you will have a jailbroken iPhone with the Cydia app. You will also be able to completely personalize your iPhone. At this point, you will have unlocked the full potential of your device. Apple's restrictions won't mean a thing anymore.

You might not believe this but having Cydia installed on your iPhone may actually help increase its resale value if you find the right customer. There are many people who would prefer buying an iPhone where this process is already taken care of for them (even though it's just a short 20 minute or so process).

Just one thing which you have to remember though. Always take a backup of your original device through iTunes before jailbreaking your iPhone. Apple has very strict regulations when it comes to jailbroken iPhones and they will cancel your warranty if they get to know that your iPhone is jailbroken. So, if the need to visit an Apple service station does arise, just restore your original software from your backup before visiting them. Not even the most experienced Apple technician will be able to ascertain that your iPhone was once jailbroken.
