This > http://apt.saurik.com/debs/cydia_1.1.8_iphoneos-arm.deb

- Reboot/restart your phone to see the changes.
Process 3 : OpenSSH method.
This process needs an app called OpenSSH which is only available though cydia source, this app is mainly used by developer to enter certain command directly from computer. So if you don’t have the app installed on your device then this process isn’t for you, follow Process 1 or 2.
Open command Line and enter the following command one after one. Make sure to hit enter button after every command to make it work.
- type apt-get install cydia [enter]
