    Ok i am new on this so be calm

    1.- I make the jail Break on My Ipod Touch of 16 Gigas First generation (with out Maps and other stuff) with the Iliberty Program, it works fine... every thing ok here

    then i saw a dock added called Cydia, i enter and try to guess how it works but it is not useful i just get a game Tris, and other game and thats all that i could do, i install a lot of applications that Cydia has, trying to find the application to customize my ipod, i install a lot of themes thinking that after i install it i could use it, but i didn't, there is no place to customize my ipod, i try to find the maps application on Cydia and it isn't there, also i try to get the weather app but also is not there, i install the terminal in my ipod trying to add more repositories but didnt understand how.

    I use Ubuntu so I understad a little about source.list, every body say that Cydia has the principal repositories, but it hasnt a lot of programs, how i get those programs like apollo or sutff like that is there a guide to do it...

    Thaks alot for your time and please explain me like if i was on elementary jajaja

    Yes I Am i don't installing knowing that i do, i just find that Iliberty was there easier way to jailbreak my ipod so I use it and it Install me the Cydia application...
    I saw the Menus in Cydia but the names of the application don't tell me much... so I think that the good stuf are in other repositories, so i want to add those repositories to my Cidya to get the application to customize my ipod and to get maps and weather jeje

    Maybe is easier to install installer.app but how i do it? those Cydia has this application?

    Cydia and installer don't use the same kind of repositories.


    Cydia has a handful of supported repositories, but ones designed for installer will not work.
