    Hey guys. What I am curious about is this.

    When you buy an app from the appstore, you can play it. (obviously xD)

    Then when a new firmware comes out for the ipod, u can update your touch and play the same app without a problem

    however when its a custom app from cydia, the developer must update the app or something to make it work on that firmware

    How exactly does that work? Do they have to change a bunch of coding or just reformat it simply or what?

    also, WHY do they have to? does itunes do this with the update or something magically?

    I hear that ants and a bunch of other apps are only for older firmwares

    thats VERY disappointing as I want all those great apps and I cant get it

    and if its like this, therell only be more and more great apps disappearing off cydia and stuff

    someone please clarify

    devs dont usualy have to update much, if anything. The only MAJOR change and loss of apps was when we moved from 1.x.x to 2.x which is when the framework for apps was changed and therefore all apps had to be converted.

    So apps like Ants and stuff will never be on 2.* fw unless the dev makes it that...

    That is REALLY !$@#@%!@$!%#%

    Also, how the hell did customize "die"

    I don't get that

    He means the app "Customize" that was for 1.x that was pretty much like WinterBoard. However, Customize let you edit string tables, ex: "slide to unlock" = "slide me", "Enter Passcode" = "Enter Code" and whatnot.
