It seems that Saurik, the developers of Cydia, have released a new version of this “unofficial” store. The new Cydia 1.1.23 version came with many new features and improvements.
One of the greatest features that Cydia 1.1.23 comes with is that it allows you to downgrade a tweak/application to an earlier stable version with ease. This new Cydia version is perfect for the users who want try out BETA or other unstable versions of tweaks/applications but, at the same time, they want a simple way to downgrade to a stable version.
How to downgrade a jailbreak tweak/application in Cydia 1.1.23
First of all, you will need to open Cydia from your home screen and search for the tweak/application you want to downgrade. Once you find it, select it and choose the “Modify” option from the top-right corner. Finally, you will need to select “Downgrade” and the Cydia will uninstall the current BETA version of that specific tweak/application and search for the latest STABLE version and install it on your device.
HINT: Keep in mind that that the “Downgrade” option will be visible only if the selected tweak/application has an older version available on the hosted Cydia repository.
This is surely one of the best features that Cydia comes with and we’re pretty sure that a lot of people will start using it. We’re pretty sure that there are many people who installed a BETA version of an application and they’ve realized that the current version of that specific tweak/application has to many bugs, it crashes all the time etc. In order to fix this problem, they had to uninstall the BETA version and search for the older STABLE version, download it and install it back on their device.
However, by using this new Cydia feature, with just a single tap, the “unofficial” store will uninstall the current version of a tweak/application and install the latest stable version of it.
