Add the BigBoss Repo in Cydia

If for whatever reason you deleted, or just don’t have the BigBoss repository this step by step tutorial will get you the repo and all of its packages! Keep in mind that the BigBoss repo is not like other repos and cannot be added by going to Manage>Sources>Edit>Add. for this you will need iFile (found at this repository):


  1. Open iFile and navigate to /etc/apt/sources.list.d/
  2. add a file named “bigboss.list” (without qutoations)
  3. Within the file add the following:
    # do not edit this file to add your own custom sources
    # this file is subject to be upgraded as part of a package
    # either add your own .list file to /etc/apt/sources.list.d
    # or add your entry to the global /etc/apt/sources.list file
    deb stable main
  4. Close out of iFile and Re-Spring or Restart your device
  5. Open Cydia and let it refresh

Now you will have the BigBoss repository with all of it’s packages!
