New jailbreak tweak dubbed as APTTimeout is a very useful release for jailbroken device owners as it set a custom timeout interval on Cydia repositories. Why do you actually need it? Often when you launch Cydia on your jailbroken iOS 10 iPhone, it refreshes all the added repositories to fetch the new packages that have been added since your last visit. A common issue that most users face is that some repositories take a very long time to refresh and it become really annoying to wait till this process will be completed.
The long refresh time is due to different reasons. Usually a package cannot be found on a repository, the repository is down, or it has connection issues. This forces the refresh operation to take a long time. If you don't want to spent you precious time waiting then APTTimeout allows you to set a custom timeout interval on Cydia repositories, such that the refresh operation is terminated if it cannot be finished within a certain amount of time that you set.
APTTimeout is really simple in use. Just go to Cydia’s BigBoss repo and grab it absolutely for free. The tweak supports all jailbroken devices from iOS 7 up to iOS 10. After installation, head to dedicated preferences pane in Settings and from there, you can set the custom timeout interval. Once done, click on the Apply Settings button for the new changes to take place. As an added measure, close Cydia from the App Switcher and launch it again for the new settings to be applied.
As an example, if you set the timeout to 25 seconds, then the refresh operation has to be finished within the 25 seconds time interval, otherwise the refresh operation will be terminated for repositories that are taking a long time. In this way, the refresh interval is reduced from minutes to merely a few seconds. That is really convenient for those who don't want to wait.
APTTimeout is a very useful Cydia package that eliminates the delay you face from repositories that take a long time to refresh. It can be extremely annoying when you have to wait for a couple of minutes just for Cydia to load the new packages. If you’ve been facing this issue recently, then we highly recommend that you give this tweak a try.
