Daily tip: How to find your Cydia account number
Are you jailbreaker eager to test a theme or jailbreak app and need to know how to find your Cydia account number? Chances are if you've ever downloaded or purchased an app or tweak from Cydia, you have one. In case you ever need to know where it is and how to find it, we've got you covered!
- Launch Cydia and go to the main Cydia tab.
- Tap on Manage Account.
- Cydia will ask you to log in if you aren't already. Simply sign in with Facebook or Google.
- Once signed in, you'll see a screen that shows your Cydia account information. Underneath Installable Purchases you'll see your Cydia account number in small font.
Simply make note of this number and give it to any developer you're testing for. This will allow them to give you access to paid apps so you can simply install them without having to pay first. This is very similar to how official App Store developers utilize your UDID number. Once the developer adds your Cydia account number you'll be all set to start testing their jailbreak apps. Just make sure you add their repository as well if you don't already have it.
