    Although the iOS 4.2.1 Jailbreak only supports the newer devices tethered, that doesn't mean Cydia is a left in the dust. Oh no, the new Cydia update is quite a speedster. Much faster than previous versions, loads of bug fixes and what not. Full list of changes down below thanks to ModMyi.

    -reduced loading changes time
    -section remapping optimizations
    -faster reloading data
    -faster, native search
    -uses public SDK classes whenever possible
    -rewritten, faster web views with zooming support
    -changes badge works again
    -more stable webviews (no crashes when queueing)
    -redesigned settings page
    -redesigned stashing page
    -faster scrolling of table views
    -bug fixes
    -ads no longer break the package views until restart
    -much better queueing UI
    -stabler refreshing bar

    iPad improvements:
    - landscape
    - popovesr
    - modal views that cover only a portion of the screen
    - less annoying errors with bad internet connections downloading packages
    - updated section mappings, less typo'd sections
