Daily tip: How to find your Cydia account number

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!

    Cydia Main
  1. Launch Cydia and go to the main Cydia tab.
  2. Tap on Manage Account.
  3. Cydia account main
  4. Cydia will ask you to log in if you aren't already. Simply sign in with Facebook or Google.
  5. Cydia account number
  6. 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.

Daily tip: How to find your Cydia account number


Magnificent issues altogether, you just gained a new reader. What may you recommend in regards to your put up that you simply made a few days in the past? Any positive?

MY download is takin' fo' eva!!! This isnot making me happy >:( PLEASE HURRY UP!!!! >:(MY I PHONE NEED DAH DOWNLOAD NOW!!!):<

I am so thankful that I decided to enroll with Pet Plan last fall. This year our dog ruptured a ligament in her knee and needed surgery and Pet Plan really came through for us. They re-imbursed us the exact amounts that our coverage gave us within 1 or 2 weeks of receiving our claims. It made the situation that much less stressfull, it would have been a nightmare without the Pet Plan coverage that we have. I will be happy to stay with Pet Plan for as long as I have a pet. Thank you!

Is there anyway I could find my Cydia account number without a jailbreak. I'm currently in a version that is un-jailbreakable. Please let me know if there is a way. Thanks.
