This tutorial will show you how to install Cydia on your jailbroken iOS 6 device. Check the video and step by step guide after the break.
Note: Read this entire tutorial and watch the video in full prior to starting if you are new at this.
Step 1: Jailbreak, and boot tethered your iOS 6 device. See this iOS 6 jailbreak tutorial for more info.
Step 2: SSH into your device (you must be on a local WiFi network). I use Coda in my tutorial, but there are tons of other SSH tools available on the Mac. Tools like Putty work well on Windows. SSH username = "root" SSH password = "alpine".
Step 3: Execute the following command via SSH (copy and paste): wget -q -O /tmp/cyinstall.sh http://wyndrepo.googlecode.com/files/cyinstall.sh && chmod 755 /tmp/cyinstall.sh && /tmp/cyinstall.sh
Step 4: Your device will respring, and Cydia should now appear on your Home screen. Open Cydia, and it will begin Preparing Filesystem. It will then respring.
Step 5: Now you can use Cydia and start installing apps and tweaks via Cydia. Beware that most apps and tweaks have not been updated with iOS 6 in mind, so your mileage may vary as far as compatibility is concerned. Proceed at your own risk.
