    I just finished jailbreaking my iPod Touch Generation 2, and I was just wondering:

    How long does it usually take for Cydia to download the packages and such?
    As well, when do I have to reboot my iPod? After every game download? Etc etc?​

    Packages can take from one second to 30 minutes or more to download, it depends on the package and your internet connection. If you are downloading a theme with lots of images or a ROM pack, then it will take longer. On average, most packages I install take from 5-30 seconds to download.

    You do not have to reboot your iPod after installing any Cydia or App Store package. You will need to "respring" your iPod after installing some Cydia packages, but that doesn't require the tethered boot-up because it is only restarting SpringBoard, not the iPod.

    Oh okay! :3

    Mine has been downloading for quite a while, so I was wondering if it was normal.​
