But with the newly-updated Cydia, these pop-ups are essentially obstructed, and also if you’re regarding to be rerouted to the App Store for any kind of reason, you’ll be met a punctual prior to you’re tossed out of Cydia.

To the end of the release notes, as an example, it is mentioned that symbols for tweaks and package deals that assist them may not show up on the home screen. After a reboot, it’s likely that these missing icons will certainly come back, as well as when the UICache device for rejuvenating symbols has actually been updated for iOS 8, this small issue should no longer continue to be.

That certain solution, as discussed in the changelog, is on the to-do listing once the Cydia devs could locate the moment to upgrade the UIKit Devices bundle, and also as quickly as that shows up, we’ll have the details here.
