    Hi guys.

    I upgraded from JB 1.1.4 to the official unbroken 2.1 this last weekend. Glad i did too as the userbility is now pretty awesome. I'm happy paying for the official firmwares and dont plan on jailbreaking my system again.

    But before i upgraded i had this message posted in a previous thread....

    my question is...

    what is Cydia, winterboard, saurik and MobileSubstrate? are these just JB elements?

    Cydia, is the same as installer, just better.

    Winterboard is the same as summerboard, its JUST MUCH better.

    Saurik is the maker of these, and other stuff, he is a god to iPhone/iPod dev

    Cydia is the 2.x version of Installer. It runs smoothly and is really stable if you don't wreck it. When installing something there will be a mini SWOD in the statusbar, this is the AppLoad feature, it loads like AppStore's way- ish
    Winterboard is the 2.x version of Summerboard
    Saurik is the creator of Cydia and Winterboard

    thanks guys.

    what is winter/summer board? i've seen the forums here, but it doesn't actually say what it is.

    and what is "SWOD"?

    MobileSubstrate is a wonder, it allows you to intergrate better with springboard, also made by saurik

    i also recommend downloading the free lightsaber app. it's the most fun you can ever have outside (or inside come to think of it) the bedroom!!!
