Before you want to install Cydia on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch running iOS 8 – 8.1, you must have your device jailbroken. If you haven’t jailbroken your iOS device, just follow the guide below and come back when you are done.

How-to jailbreak iOS 8 – 8.1 using Pangu

This is going to be a bit technical, so if you have never done this before, I suggest you not to try this, unless you really want Cydia on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch running iOS 8. Now that out-of-the-way, let’s begin.

Install Cydia iOS 8

Step 1: Jailbreak your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch using the above link.

Step 2: Make sure your computer and the iOS device are on the same Wi-Fi network. Note your IP address of your iOS device by heading over to Settings > Wi-Fi > tap on “i” icon and note down the IP address.

Step 3: Download WinSCP ( a FTP client for Windows). As Pangu jailbreak currently works only for Windows, I have not mentioned a Mac client. By the time Mac version is available for Pangu, Cydia will be installed automatically.

Step 4: Download Cydia deb file.

Step 5: Download Cydia-Iproj file.

Step 6: Now open the Windows FTP client (WinSCP) and SSH into your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch by using the IP address from Step 2 and username as “root” and password as “alpine”.

Step 7: In the file browser, drag and drop the files from step 4 and step 5. Make sure you dropped it in a place which you can remember.

Step 8: Press Ctrl + T. Now locate the deb files in the folder you placed in step 7 using a cd command.

Step 9: Now run these commands “dpkg -i cydia-lproj_1.1.12_iphoneos-arm.deb”  “dpkg -i cydia_1.1.13_iphoneos-arm.deb”, (don’t include the speech marks).

Step 10: It’s almost over. Reboot your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. And, voila! Cydia should be installed on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch running iOS 8.

As you can see from the screen shot above, nothing really works on iOS 8. So I should you hold off until things start working and then jailbreak so you can properly install Cydia.
