    I have no idea how to code or program at all, but i really want to make an app for cydia. I know it will take a lot of time to learn, but can someone direct me to some guides that will help me get started in the programming/coding world so i can some day make my own app.

    -Thanks, btw i need guides for the basics all the way to advanced and i will analyze them all tommorow.

    It takes a long time to learn Objective-C. Start by learning basic C, then move on to Objective-C.

    1. Install the toolchain onto your phone. Get that from Cydia.
    2. Study this practice example. touchrepo/.../New.app.zip You should be able to compile it no problem.
    3. Study other examples of source, header files, and what not.
    4. Creat your app using the knowledge you have gained.
