    I constantly hear about people having these installer apps. When I jailbroke my ipod I never got the installer, instead I only got cydia... I used the Jailbreakme method. Is there a similar one to download installer without the use of a computer?

    I'm pretty sure installer is outdated (like 2.x.x or something) now and completely replaced by cydia, but don't quote me on that. Can someone back me up?

    Yeah what files, as far as I know they need to be .deb files or legal app store files or files for the unspeakable app.

    If it tells you to download it from Installer, chances are it won't work on the latest firmwares. Installer was replaced by Cydia in the 2.x days, so any sources that are used with Installer cannot be used with Cydia.

    It's just the way things went.

    Safari plug in download from Cydia? Or is that somewhat illegal and shunned upon?
