>How to Update Cydia in Background on iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad


Good news for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad users. Now you can update Cydia in the background. As we know last year Apple has introduced multitasking feature with iOS 4.0 but this feature is not supported by Cydia. This means whenever you start Cydia the updates are installed along with “Reloading Data” screens. The good news is now you can update Cydia in the background on your iPhone, iPod touch and iPad by using some SBSettings toggles. Now you can check your email, you can play games or you can do other things on your iPhone while at the same time Cydia is updating in the background.

Using this toggle you can updates and upgrades your Apt cache and packages in the background and this was the first toggle to appear in Cydia. Simply you have to press the button and then you can do anything while iPhone updates.

Debian Updater for SBSettings
This toggle comes with a Status Bar icon which allows you to know when its running. A separate Status Bar icon will be shown when it finds any updates. Without starting Cydia app you can refresh your Cydia source list on lockscreen, or Springboard.

You should note that before installing the above toggles you must install SBSettings from Cydia.You should remember your iPhone, iPod touch and iPad must be jailbroken to install it.
