How to make Cydia load faster ( Speed up Guide )

In the following guide you will learn how to make Cydia load faster, by speeding it up. It’s a simple tutorial that consists only of modifying a couple of code lines, to make things smoother. This helps a lot because we all know that Cydia can take a while from the starting moment to the point where your file has been downloaded and ready to use. In order to complete this, you must know how to SSH into your iPhone 4, 3G, 3GS, iPad, iPod Touch 2G / 3G / 4G or whatever device you will use.

In order to make Cydia load faster we will make the Cydia ads disappear, but also your app screenshots. This is the only way, so you must make a small sacrifice in order to speed Cydia. Also, this will not break your ability to purchase Cydia apps. Now all you have to do is follow the guide bellow:

How to make Cydia load faster / Speed up
  1. SSH into your iPhone to “/private/var/stash/Applications/Cydia.app”.

  2. Save a backup of the “package.js” file, just in case something goes wrong.

  3. Now edit the “package.js” file and scroll down until line 197 or so. Change the code and make it look like this:

    var depiction = package.depiction;
    if ((!commercial) && (depiction == null || true))
    $(“.depiction”).addClass(“deleted”);
    else {
    $(“.description”).addClass(“deleted”);
    $(“#depiction-src”).src(depiction);
    }

  4. Reboot the iPhone and everything should work faster now. Launch Cydia to see the improvements.
