Jailbreak fans who are using the Electra tool should be happy to know that CoolStar started rolling out the brand-new Cydia installer “1.1.30-coolstar6-2” update. The reason why jailbreak fans should get excited about the new update is that it is packed with a bunch of enhancements which are going to provide people who own iPhones or iPads that are jailbroken with the iOS 11 Electra tool.
New Cydia Installer Update
The last major Cydia update arrived six weeks ago on March 20th and CoolStar had enough time to develop some software tweaks which are going to enhance the tool. The interesting thing about the March 20th release and the new update is that both have new naming conventions which serve the purpose of showing people that they are a bifurcation of the original and certified Cydia that was launched by the famous Saurik.
The biggest change that the new “1.1.30-coolstar6-2” update contains is related to the Packhix and Hashbang (Chariz). The two will set as default repos from now on. In addition, the update’s changelog also mentions that some issues might pop up and what fans need to do in order to make them go away.
“If you get duplicate Packages error after updating Cydia, delete Hasbang and Packix repo from Cydia (it will not actually delete; it will only remove the duplicate entry)” said the developer in the changelog.
Two New Default Repository
What we can take from the update’s changelog is that CoolStar has introduced two new default repositories for Cydia. What this means is that Cydia users who installed the new update will have instant access to packages and content hosted on Packix and Hashbang serves. We should also mention that the new update can be installed directly on top of the previous one.
