Cydia 1.1.25 update was released

Cydia 1.1.25 update was released later in the evening by the creator of Cydia application, the new version bringing a change to how the application manages the / Applications iOS operating system after the jailbreak community.

Below you have a very complex explanation offered by Saurik for changes made after Apple made a lot of changes in how works iOS 9 operating system update today having no impact on functionality.

Cydia 1.1.25 is available for download immediately.

Return to Stashing /Applications. When Pangu and I were discussing the jailbreak release for iOS 9, there was originally a limitation of the jailbreak (due to Apple’s mitigations in iOS 9 being “actually effective”) that made it impossible to free disk soace by moving /Applications from the system partition to the user partition. After doing a bunch of testing without moving this folder, we ran into a similar issue with another folder that Cydia was still stashing. After contemplating just not stashing almost anything, we made a painful “executive decision” to make a wider sandbox carve-out than normal and allow for these folders to be moved, but that Pangu would spend time attempting to fix this somehow. It was not clear to me in which direction they would “fix” the issue, and so I’ve been concerned about pushing an update that stashes /Applications. However, as of last night, Pangu has told me that they will not be pushing a change to break this feature. Also, Apple just released iOS 9.1, so I’m pushing this Cydia update now in order to minimize the number of people who run into some problem with a “late stash” after the signing window closes, which will happen very very soon. (Meanwhile, I’ve been spending most of my time for days working on updating the Eraser feature of Cydia Impactor to support iOS 9, as Pangu is now doing something more complex that I previously was not setup to “undo”, in addition to Apple making some changes to the OTA format. I managed to get this done just in time, though I also ended up managing to do it without having to actually restore my device a eve once.)
