ModMyi and ZodTTD/MacCiti Cydia Repositories Shut Down

In a tear-jerking turn of events for the jailbreak community, both the ModMyi and ZodTTD/MacCiti repositories have formally announced that they’ve closed their doors to new package submissions.

Both repositories have been “archived,” which means existing packages from each repository remain available to download from Cydia. On the other hand, developers who depended on ModMyi or ZodTTD/MacCiti to host their packages will need to choose a different Cydia repository for doing so going forward.

It’s a sad day indeed. We, unfortunately, have to announce that the ModMyi Cydia Repository has been archived and won’t be taking any new packages.
Optimo, the maintainer of BigBoss repository has stated that “things are tough” but has confirmed that they will continue to host and accept new and old packages. He has also announced that they will be accepting themes again. He has posted a detailed article on reddit explaining the state of the jailbreak repositories.

As it would seem, there are no plans for the BigBoss repository to close its doors anytime soon. While ModMyi and ZodTTD/MacCiti opted to shut down slightly earlier, BigBoss will continue chugging along until it’s no longer financially possible to do so.
