    Right so you've Jailbroken you iPod touch

    Now what?

    'I have two new icons, What do they do?'

    Installer and Cydia are both apps that allow you to download and install 3rd party apps, tweaks, themes and lots more making your iPod available to a wide range more customization.

    So you want to know how to use Installer?

    Trust me you don't

    Cydia is much better

    So lets teach you about that shall we

    First of all you should have the Cydia icon on your SpringBoard:

    Click on that and wait for it to load you will probably have to install and update so do that then restart Cydia you should get a screen like this:

    Click on 'Sections' at the bottom to bring up something that will look a bit like this:

    Scroll down and find a section called 'Repositories':

    Click on that sections and you will have a list of things I don't but find the 'All sources' one:

    Click on that to bring up this screen:

    Click 'Install' in the top right corner to bring up this screen:

    Click 'Confirm' in the top right corner and let it install:

    Once it has installed click the 'Return to Cydia' button:

    Done

    Now you will have a wider range of packages (things to download)

    If you don't know how to add sources manually or install a package comment and I will add another section
