    Device:
    4G iPod touch
    winterboard: themes and stuff
    sbsettings: quick settings toggles in every app
    ifile: browse system files (a little advanced)
    multiiconmover: move multiple icons at the same time

    how to use cydia and stuff:
    Think of cydia as the app store, but instead of giving you apps, gives you tweaks and things apple doesnt want you to do. Cydia is basically a user-friendly interface that makes it easy to download, browse, and install packages. It is a great way to find all your tweaks, emulators, etc. on the first tab, the one you see when you first load cydia, is the home page (cydia.saurik.com). it basically says welcome and shows some featured themes and tweaks.

    the "apps" in cydia are called packages. they provide MANY things. in the second tab, you have all your categories of packages. you will figure them out over time.

    moving over another tab, you have "changes." Changes load all the things that are new/introduced to different repositories (I'll get to those later) at certain times of the day. this tab also tells you about updates to your existing packages.

    next, is the management tab. this tab shows three things: packages, sources, and storage (i think). packages shows all the packages YOU currently have installed. some of them are advanced, just leave them alone. in the sources tab (the second one) you have your sources. they are websites/databases where all the packages you see in cydia are derived from. you can add repo's if you'd like, and get packages from corresponding repositories. the third button is self explanatory.

    the last tab, is the search tab. im pretty sure you get that one
