    Ok so here's all the Cydia apps I downloaded:

    WinterBoard
    Legend of Zelda theme
    AptBackup
    Mario theme

    Now I'm on Cydia at the moment, just browsing through its products and all and seeing what I might like to get. I have been aware that there are price tags above every Cydia app, but I didn't worry about it because I thought since I was jailbroken everything that was installed from blackra1n was free. Just now it suddenly hit me to think about it. Is that true? What are the price tags for if it is free? And if Cydia's products are not free, does that mean I have been charging my mom's credit card with all this money???

    Only a few Cydia downloads cost money. I think it tells you how much the select package costs(if it costs any) next to the package info.

    What that's retarded..... Why would you have to pay to hack something? Isn't hacking supposed to get you free stuff? Lol.

    Is it to support Saurik or something?

    When I browsed through the Cydia Products section, everything there had a price, so I guess all those were the professional apps.

    So is Cydia: Products the only section that contains purchasable apps?

    Thanks for the help.
