    Hey guys,

    I came across this site which allows you to host a repo for free! I believe it's only compatible with cydia, but I could be wrong.

    Okay so the first thing that you need to do is point your browser, (on PC/ Mac, not iDevice) to http://www.myrepospace.com/

    Once your here you need to register an account, (you need an email address to verify the account).

    Please Register or Log in to view images



    Once you've done that, you can login, then hit 'Jump to account', then 'Settings', then you can add a descrition on the 'Repo' tab.

    You can upload an avatar (logo) to the 'Avatar' tab. If you do, you should click 'Create icon pack'. This is a source GUI (google it).

    Please Register or Log in to view images



    Then return to the home page and click 'Add a new package'. It's right under the 'Jump to account' link we used earlier. Then choose a category:

    Now press choose file. You need to upload a '.deb' file this is a binary packaged installer file- i.e '.exe'. There are a few places you can get these:

    • You can create them, I won't go into that
    • You cangrab them from your tmp directory whilst you install on Cydia

    You can them upload them to your source. From here you need to add a lengthier description, then hit finish.

    You can now go to your url i.e http://cydia.myrepospace.com/dl_123/ on your PC and view your uploads.

    Now on your iDevice open up Cydia and hit manage-sources-edit-add and type the rest of your url at the end.

    [Removed]
    Then you will see your repo under 'Sources'. You should see your avatar instead of the unknown symbol. I'm working to fix mine.

    Then click the link to your source, and you will see all of the apps that you uploaded.

    Now click an app you would like to download and then hit install- confirm

    Please Register or Log in to view images



    Then it will start to download

    [Removed]

    And it's done! You can see at the bottom 'com.myrepospace.dl_123.weathericon'

    Thanks for reading guys!

    One screenshot mentions cracked apps, please remove that(those) image(s) as to avoid being warned/infracted.
