How To Install Cydia Manually On iOS 8/8.1 After Using Pangu Jailbreak

It was a great news and a great surprise too when we heard that pangu team released a jailbreak for iOS 8/8.1 devices bringing the hope back to millions of people. Unfortunately there is only one thing missing in this jailbreak-Cydia.

The good news is that Saurik, father of Cydia has just updated Cydia to support iOS 8/iOS 8.1 jailbreak and made it available for manual download through his website.The Pangu team is expected to release an updated version of Pangu8, but if you can’t wait until then, here’s how to install Cydia the manual way.

NOTE: Before proceeding into this guide, we would like to tell you that it will be quite complex, so you can wait for the upcoming version of pangu tool, in case you don't want to follow these steps. It's up to you.

STEP 1: Ensure that you've already jailbroken your device running on iOS 8/iOS8.1 using pangu tool.

STEP 2: Download the Cydia deb file from this link on your PC/Mac.

STEP 3: You’ll need to to send the file to your iOS device via SFTP. If you’re on Mac, download and install Cyberduck, and if you’re on Windows, download and install WinSCP.

STEP 4: Ensure that your PC/Mac and iOS device are on the same Wi-Fi network. Get the IP address of your device from Settings > Wi-Fi and tap the “i” button against the network you’re connected to. Note down the series of numbers labelled IP Address.

STEP 5: Now you should see a file browser, and you can drag and drop the deb file in a location you can remember.

STEP 6: Next press Ctrl + T or ⌘ + T to start an SSH command line session. Navigate to the same folder (using the cd command) where you had copied the deb file.

STEP 7: Now, run this command: ‘dpkg -i cydia_1.1.13_iphoneos-arm.deb’ (without quotes, replace cydia_1.1.13_iphoneos-arm.deb with the exact name of the file).
If you get warnings of any dependency missing, download the dependency manually from this link and repeat the process, and try to install Cydia again with the same command as above.

STEP 8: Finally reboot your device and you should see Cydia installed on your device..

Saurik was quoted saying:
I’ve given a new version of Cydia Installer in the form of a standard jailbreak bootstrap for inclusion in a new version of their jailbreak. I’ve also pushed the .deb of the iOS 8 version of Cydia to for manual download, but not yet to my repository. A lot of thanks goes out to limneos, who tested the new build for me, as I was at an airport (and now am frantically typing this message while they figure out how to retract the jetbridge from the plane I’m on that is about to take off).
So what do you think guys ?
