    I can’t find the Cydia folder on the iphone explored. There’s nothing inside the Media folder.

    What do I do?

    I have Cydia installed on my phone. I tried to install ultrasn0w through wifi, but it did not work. I restarted my phone and it was still locked. So I wanted to try to install it with iPhone explorer, but I can’t find the Auto-installing location.
