Cydia 1.1.28 Final Version For iOS 10.2 Jailbreak Released With Tweak Purchase Option Enabled
Those of you new to iOS jailbreak, we would like to mentioned that the Cydia 1.1.28 is the first ever Cydia version that allows support for 64-bit jailbroken devices coupled with the compatibility with yalu102 jailbreak for iOS 10 – 10.2 version. Main reason for blocking the purchase of tweaks in the initial yalu102 jailbreak for iOS 10 or later was it was pretty much in the beta state and contain significant risks of damaging device if incompatible or half-baked tweaks was purchased and installed on them. But now, Saurik realized that the iOS 10.2 jailbreak is in stable enough state that he pushed Cydia 1.1.28 final version with the tweak purchasing option enabled on all jailbroken devices.
If you are using latest iOS 10 or later jailbreak, we suggest that you upgrade to Cydia 1.1.28 final immediately as it’s more stable and compatible version of the popular Cydia jailbreak tool. It also brings lots of needed improvements in the system management on jailbroken devices to ensure stable performance for a long time to come. Just refresh Cydia and head over to the Changes tab to update it to the new version.
Cydia 1.1.28 full version also supports APT 1.14~b. Here is what developers had to say about this new change:
major update to the core package management logic used by Cydia. This library, which is shared with Linux distributions such as Debian and Ubuntu, is an industry standard, which Cydia has been excited to share. For purposes of performance and reliability, Cydia had a number of patches to the (rather old) copy of APT it had been using. It turns out APT’s upstream has been paying attention, and was excited to have us update.
Although the tweak purchase feature has been enabled by Saurik, but you may not be able to access it for some tweaks. This is because the developers of jailbreak tweaks have to manually update their tweaks to enable tweak purchasing. As soon as they are updated, you will be able to purchase tweaks on iOS 10 or later jailbroken devices. Users of Cydia 1.1.28 beta or older version will need to update to the full Cydia 1.1.28 version in order to use this feature.
Moreover, Cydia 1.1.28 final version also brings in essential bug fixes, performance improvement features. Users of older iOS jailbreaks on iOS 7, 8, and iOS 9 can also update to latest Cydia 1.1.28 final version.

You can get the Telesphoreo repo from the default repo section in Cydia. To get the update, refresh Cydia after which you will be able to access the update lying the in the Changes tab.
