How to Add Missing ModMyi Repo (Source) to Cydia?

After BigBoss repo, ModMyi is probably the largest repo out there carrying hundreds of packages including themes, wallpapers, tweaks and soundboards. Though ModMyi repo is added to Cydia by default whenever you jailbreak your iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad but some users were unable to find ModMyi repo after jailbreaking their device with tools like Spirit, JailbreakMe and Limera1n.

Adding ModMyi repo directly by using as Cydia/APT URL will result in Did not Find Repository error as shown in the screenshot below:

ModMyi Repo Error
In-order to add ModMyi source to your jailbroken device, follow the steps below:

  1. Open Cydia, search for OpenSSH and install it
  2. OpenSSH Cydia

  3. Download from here and jump to step 5
  4. Now create a text file on your desktop using Notepad on Windows (TextEdit on Mac) and put the following code in it as shown in the screenshot below:
  5. # 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

    Adding ModMyi Repo to Cydia

  6. Go to File menu, choose Save As... and name the file "" (including quotes)
  7. Save As

  8. SSH into your iDevice using WinSCP, CyberDuck or DiskAid, navigate to root->private->etc->apt and place file in sources.list.d directory.
  9. Cydia Repos

  10. Thats it. Reboot your device and you are done!

    If you’ve uninstalled the Modmyi repository (or another one of the default community sources), you can reinstall it by opening Cydia and choosing “More Package Sources” from the homepage. The missing source (if any) will display at the top of the page and you can tap it to reinstall.

      Yep, that’s far more easier & better.
