      I have iOS 8.1.3 installed on my phone I still have cydia on it but nothing works ..
      Trying to some of your apps and it’s not showing any install button ..
      Do I need to pay for these app or is it that I have the 8.1.3 installed is there anyway I could switch back to the 8.1.2 or do I need to pay for the apps with them 8.1.3 will this solve my problem ?

      Cydia will not work with iOS 8.1.3 as jailbreak is patched with the update. There is no longer anyway to go back to 8.1.2, you will likely need to wait until 8.2 is Jailbroken. Until then you are stuck with how it is.
