For those that aren’t familiar with it, Cydia is the name of a third-party App Store for the iPhone and iPod touch. Many users jailbreak their device to get access to the apps and also to unlock or theme their device the way they want to. Our jailbreak page lists all the reasons people jailbreak. Today, Cydia started crashing due to some files in the ZodTTD repository and a lot of people started searching for “cydia crashing” on Google.

I’ve experienced Cydia crashing many times, and would recommend that you try the Rock app instead. Rock is a faster and better alternative to Cydia, and can be installed through blackra1n.
