Knowing how to download Cydia is a life saving trick for iPhone users. It is a gateway program that allows the owners of these devices to get once restricted applications on their phones. The process to get this program on your device is a fairly simple one. However, your phone must be ready to take it.
To get your phone ready, you need to perform a “jailbreak”. This is where the limitations on your apple device are removed. These limitations are the factory settings on the phone that only allow you to get secure apps from the virtual apple store. With the jailbreak, the owner can get apps not just from those available in the apple store, but elsewhere through the downloaded program.
The jailbreak is both good and bad. It does remove the restrictions but it also compromises the safety and security of your phone. It it important for those customers who have performed jailbreaks to secure their information, and restrict the use of credit cards or other sensitive data over these phones.
After performing the jailbreak, getting the gateway program to a world of apps is easy. Some sites have t for free and others don’t. Whatever the situation, you can upload and install in a matter of minutes.
The actual process of downloading this program is straight forward. It comes with instructions from the welcome page to the end. At the welcome page, select user as the answer to the question “Who are you?”. The program will then start to run and come to an “essential upgrade page”.
Select the complete upgrade option and just wait. After the upgrades are completed, you will be asked to restart the device. Follow the instructions to complete this process. The program will be completely installed after restarting and you can then use it to get whatever applications you want.
