How to Download Extreme WiFi on Cydia

By Spanner Spencer

ExtremeWiFi is an application for jailbroken iPhones, which have been unlocked from iTunes and can install third-party software from the independent Cydia app store. Cydia hosts applications that are specifically designed for jailbroken devices, such as ExtremeWiFi. The ExtremeWiFi application uses GPS data to locate your iPhone's geographical position and connect it to nearby Wi-Fi networks. It also works with reduced functionality on the iPod Touch and iPad, which do not have GPS reception.

Step 1

Launch the Cydia application store on your jailbroken iPhone by tapping its icon on the Home screen.

Step 2

Tap the "Search" button in the lower right corner of the screen.

Step 3

Type "ExtremeWiFi" into the search box at the top of the screen. A list of search results is automatically compiled.

Step 4

Tap the entry for the ExtremeWiFi application in the search results to open its full listing page.

Step 5

Tap the "Install" button in the upper right corner of the screen, followed by the "Confirm" button on the next page. ExtremeWiFi is downloaded to your iPhone.

Step 6

Tap the "Respring" button when prompted by Cydia. This restarts the iPhone's Home screens and allows ExtremeWiFi to run on the device.

Tips & Warnings

  • Note that there is no space between the two words in ExtremeWiFi's title. This will make searching for the correct application on Cydia easier and more accurate.
