    I want to make a Cydia app. Something simple. I just need to know how to make it. What SDK do I use?
    Im running on Windows 7.
    Also I need a free program.

    You have to have a Mac since the SDK is made for Mac and the only thing you can code with is Obj-C, there's no way to use Obj-C on Windows.

    you can set up the toolchain with cygwin. I'm not sure of the specifics, but there is a thread around here somewhere on the subject.

    I guess you could. But it'll be damn hard.

    You'd have to like do everything without a nib file. I'd recommend doing it in Python like Saurik does.

    IMO, Saurik's cycript is the most awesome iPhone app scripting language, since it uses an Obj-C-like syntax combined with JavaScript (like Objective-J). I have hardly any experience with JavaScript, but I'm perfectly fine with Cycript. In Cycript, you can reuse many parts of the code for "actual" native SDK/toolchain apps.

    So that's windows?
    Can i make apps or just terminal stuff?

    Also to the thread starter look into
    DragonFireSDK & AirPlaySDK

    Use uBuildApp.com It's web based.

    1. You CAN make (Cydia) apps with Cycript; check out some of Saurik's/hyernado's examples.

    2. Do DragonFire/AirPlay even work with jailbroken apps?

    Meh. It costs money, and it's basically just tab-bar-web-view crap (IMO) + JavaScript.
