Here’s How You Can Downgrade Unstable Jailbreak Tweaks In Cydia


Previously, we have covered about an updated version of Cydia to 1.1.23 that brought two new major updated features which were highly demanded by jailbreak users. Saurik has added a new discovery feature that shows users a list of categorized substrate based tweaks that aid in extending customization on stock iOS apps. The 'Find Extensions For Applications' is a very useful utility feature which is part of Cydia 1.1.23 update.

However, we'll be talking about another feature that enables users to downgrade their jailbreak tweaks to the previous version or any version which is present in the repository. The reason this feature came up to our list is because sometimes when we upgrade tweaks, the newer version is a bit unstable and faces issues.
