3rd Method: Install with Mobile Terminal

Requirements: Mobile Terminal and OpenSSH
“Steps 2 and 3 are only if you have never installed a .deb file with this method”

  2. Start Cydia, go to “Search”, type “Mobile Terminal” and install it
  3. Repeat step 2 for “OpenSSH”
  4. Start “MobileTerminal”
  5. Type the following commands , then reboot:
su  (press return)
alpine  (press return)  /!\ You won’t see the typed password then don’t worry /!\
dpkg -i nameofpackage.deb  (press return, replace nameofpackage with LockInfo for the example)
Note that you can rename the .deb file like 1.deb (it’s easier to type)


  1. Does this work with out a jailbreak?

    1. No. If your device is not jailbroken, you do not have access to var/root. Cydia/Autoinstall is a part of the jailbreak.

  7. Man's greatest achievement? Perhaps not, but can you afford not to read on when I am about to tell you about cydia download? I really, really like cydia download. Indispensable to homosapians today, several of todays most brilliant minds seem incapable of recognising its increasing relevance to understanding future generations. It still has the power to shock the over 50, trapped by their infamous history
