Saurik has actually just taken to Twitter to reveal an upgrade to Cydia with support for iOS 8.3 jailbroken devices. Now up to version 1.1.18, the brand-new Cydia update fixes “can not recognize your device” mistake on iOS 8.3 running devices.

Cydia 1.1.17 repairs the “can not determine your device” error on iOS 8.3. (No: this is not a Substrate update; TaiG states they are repairing that.)

It is very important to keep in mind that this isn’t the Cydia Substratum fix that you have actually been waiting for to run your preferred jailbreak fine-tunes on iOS 8.3. That according to Saurik is still originating from TaiG team, ideally soon. You can check out more on iOS 8.3 jailbreak and Cydia Substrate compatibility here: Saurik On TaiG iOS 8.3 Jailbreak And Cydia Substratum.



Here’s the full changelog of Cydia 1.1.18:

Cydia 1.1.17 is a bug repair release

Update Cydia to Support iOS 8.3

On iOS 8.3, Cydia would report that it “can not recognize your device” while attempting to access your account. This was because of changes on iOS 8.3 and has been fixed.

Support file:/// Repository URLs

Recent versions of Cydia have actually turned down regional repository URLs. This was due to an overly-limited filter on acceptable URLs. You can now once more utilize local repositories.

To update to the latest version Cydia 1.1.18 on your device, Simply launch Cydia and wait for it to completely load. Once loaded, tap on Changes tab > Refresh button. Cydia will now prompt you with “Essential Upgrade” message. Tap on ‘Complete Upgrade’ and wait for it to download and install the latest update. Once done, it will automatically respring the device straight into the Lock Screen with updated version of Cydia ready to go.


Released only yesterday, TaiG 2.0 jailbreak is presently offered for Windows only and works on all iOS devices running either iOS 8.3, iOS 8.2 or iOS 8.1.3.
