    Don't worry Installer is garbage.

    It was a 1.x.x to 2.2.1 package manager.

    Its being shut down real soon.

    LOL. But what its exact purpose and what does it do? I want to know what it does so that i can choose if i should omit Installer.

    Do i need to install the installer together with cydia?

    Installer is being completely shut down and the repos are being taken offline sometime soon (I'm not sure of the exact date, but it's before the end of summer.) Why would you want it anyway? There's nothing good in it.
