    I did not write this prichmond12 did from tysiphonehelp
    Icy is our take on the freeware package manager that uses APT repos to install and remove packages available in another free application installer, Cydia. The goal was to create a fast, lightweight and more slick solution that is easy to use. This new package was created by RIPDev, you can read they’re full description here.

    The application works in Landscape and the first launch, will import all the sources and the list of installed packages from Cydia to stop it from crashing. This will be easy because sources such as BigBoss are already APT’s on cydia. So the first lunch will be really just the same after jailbreaking and opening up cydia itself.

    Also Icy is much quicker than cydia, meaning you can delete packages much faster and install them much faster. Once you hit install to any package it will show you what it is doing in four easy steps.

    Yesterday we didn’t know what this was but today we know:

    Edit" Add the ripdev source apt.ripdev.com and it is under packaging in cydia

    While it may be fast, quick, and smexy, it eats up bandwidth without showing the depictions and advertisements, and is likely to be blocked by the major repositories like InstallerApp. See the announcement by SkylarEC for the InstallerApp topic.
