    The point of Cydia is to be open source. Now I haven't seen any developer man enough to dig around and make their own version of Cydia.

    Installer is buggy and respring is risky. However, the Installer UI is just simply gorgeous. Would it be possible to make Cydia look and maybe act more like Installer 4?

    What do you guys think?

    yeah it would be possible, but Cydia is Cydia and Installer is Installer.

    Yes I understand Installer is Installer and Cydia is Cydia. However, I feel if Cydia fixed a few things it would be great. I like Installer for its UI but the respring sucks on 2.0 but on 1.1.4 it was great. So now (I cannot code or theme). I am just suggesting some developer takes this project or ANY project on. The point of cydia is to be open source and this hasn't been done yet.

    Why don't you do it instead of relying on someone else to do it for you

    I know.. but I have no coding ability at all. This i not a thread saying I WILL DO IT. This is just a suggestion thread for any developer to pick up.

    You seemed to be saying noone was "man enough" to do it, so I challenged you to be man enough!

    No offence but I think Saurik is doing a great job at Cydia, I like it the way it is.

    You know what gets me mad about this forum alot of times? People always bringing people down.

    I only used the word man enough because the FACT IS no developer ever took Cydia's open source and actually used it. This is what it was meant to be. This is a suggestion. Do not put pressure on me. Its only a cool thought in my head. We can stand here and complain all day or how about contributing to the actual subject.

    It was a joke man, no need to get in a huff about it.
