    Cydia and Icy are package installers similar to Apple's App Store.
    As for the Internal Error, I'm not sure how to help...

    I believe it was because he installed them both at the same time, causing problems.. or at least it did for me. do a full restore, re - jailbreak, and only install cydia. this fixed it up for me...

    Hello

    . That was some of the problems I have had with cydia, but didn't know icy could have been the reason. Is there a safe way to get rid of icy without hurting or deleting other data, especially important purchases (3.0, App store)? Thanks. Take care & God bless

    ^ Just restore and re-jailbreak. Removing Icy manually might cause some problems.

    And all your purchases and data won't be lost, as long as you make a backup before you restore.

    . Thanks for the help in your post, .ipodsavant. It did fix the problem. One question I do have, what is the difference between Icy & Cydia?

    Icy has no ads and stuff, but Cydia does. No ads=no loading time/faster

    Icy and Cydia are similar, but personally I believe Icy is better. However, Icy does not have the extras like Cydia does. It lacks screenshots, the 'More Information' tab, and can't buy commercial Cydia Store applications. Icy is faster than Cydia and there are no advertisements. It all comes down to personal taste.

    I prefer Cydia.

    Before you jailbrake. Backup your iPod.
