    OK, so I've been away from the jailbreak scene for a while (I went legit

    ) and now on 2.2, I've decided to have another go at it. But I have some questions.

    1. Why does everyone use Cydia instead of Installer? What are the differences?
    2. What's winterboard and why is it different from springboard?
    3. Is there a fool proof way to add and change themes? Last time (1.1.4) I always had problems with themes randomly mixing and themes not showing up properly etc.
    4. SSHing always crashed on me before after using it for a long period of time. Does it still?
    5. With apps from the appstore I've used up 8/9 pages. Is there any way to add more?
    6. Before it wasn't possible to brick, can it happen now?

    Thanks for help. I'll post more questions if I have them.

    1. Cydia is less buggy and has more apps on it
    2. WinterBoard is basically an add-on to SpringBoard which allows theming. If you're talking about SummerBoard, WinterBoard is the more powerful 2.x version of SummerBoard.
    3. WinterBoard is used to add and change themes.
    4. I'm not sure about that one, seeing as I use Total Commander.
    5. I don't think so; you can use Categories to organize your apps or Poof to hide some of them.
    6. No.

    New Questions: Will backing and up in iTunes affect any apps from Cydia or Installer?, and If apps are in categories / stacks , will syncing or backing up affect that? What about updating appstore apps?
