The Pangu team today released a jailbreak for all devices running iOS 8 and iOS 8.1 devices. There was just one thing missing in the jailbreak — Cydia. The good news is that saurik has quickly updated Cydia for iOS 8 and iOS 8.1, and made it available for manual download through his website. The Pangu team is expected to release an updated version of Pangu8, but if you can’t wait until then, here’s how to install Cydia the manual way.
Ensure that your iOS 8 – iOS 8.1 device is jailbroken. You can follow our guide if you need help:

How to install cydia manually in your jailbroken device:
Download the Cydia deb file from this link, and cydia-lproj file from this link on your PC/Mac.
You’ll need to to send the file to your iOS device via SFTP. If you’re on Mac, download and install Cyberduck, and if you’re on Windows, download and install WinSCP.
Ensure that your PC/Mac and iOS device are on the same Wi-Fi network. Get the IP address of your device from Settings > Wi-Fi and tap the “i” button against the network you’re connected to. Note down the series of numbers labelled IP Address.
Now open Cyberduck or WinSCP and SSH into your device, with the address as the IP address you got from the earlier step, and the username as ‘root’ and password as ‘alpine’ (both without quotes).
Now you should see a file browser, and you can drag and drop the two deb files in a location you can remember.
Next press Ctrl + T or ⌘ + T to start an SSH command line session. Navigate to the same folder (using the cd command) where you had copied the deb file.
Now, run these commands in order:’dpkg -i cydia-lproj_1.1.12_iphoneos-arm.deb’ ‘dpkg -i cydia_1.1.13_iphoneos-arm.deb’ (without quotes)
If you get warnings of any dependency missing, download the dependency manually from this link and repeat the process, and try to install Cydia again with the same command as above.
Reboot your device, and if all goes well, you should see a Cydia icon on your home screen.
Let us know if you managed to install Cydia using this process.
