    Ok yes my title is inappropriate but i mean c'mon! I cant even install 2 simple apps (boostool and SSH) without having to restore. Cydia is a rather embarrassment then achievement. I've had to restore 4 times today after 3 of those times syncing ALL 4.5 gigs of my media which takes about 2 hours at the least, but i mean thats most of my day! I cannot believe Cydia is comparable to Installer. Thats just simply a joke. If you are looking to JB 2.0 i warn you to install apps before syncing things because if you do sync and your still wanting to download apps from Cydia i say good luck.

    As of right now there is no alternative to Cydia, so would you rather have nothing? The developer has acknkowledged many bugs and inconsistencies. Not everything can be perfect, especially since firmware 2.0 is relatively new.

    Cydia works fine for me. I'm surprised you're not just glad that we actually have something to install things onto our iPoTs and iPhones. Sure, Cydia could be improved. But it was never meant to be another "Installer". Saurik ported Cydia over to 2.0 before the Installer team managed to get 4.0 running. Cydia is faulty in many ways, but if we didn't have Cydia, then really, what would have been the point of pwning your iPoT / iPhone in the first place?


    W/o downloading Cydia, you couldn't have even gotten OpenSSH.

    ...not yet at least. INSTALLER 4.0 hurry up please. ^^

    No you're not the only one. I've had not a single problem since that first ecstatic day when I pwnt my iPoT.

    I haven't had to restore. But I'm always lucky, Only have had SWOD twice since I got my touch in like february. One from closing bosstool early and 1 from mass uninstallations
