    For everyone who thinks installer.app is this almighty god that rains apps down on us from heaven, think again. All it does is retrieve info from repo's and put files where they need to go. Hell, i could manually install all those apps just fine. But im waaay to lazy to do it. i can do everything it does with uZip, Download Plugin and MobileFinder. Or i could do it with SSH. Instead of everyone going "LOL OMG1010!!! INSTALLER ROX MY SOX I LOVE INSTALLER" they should be going "OMG1010!!! REPO CREATORS ROX MY SOX I LOVE REPO CREATORS" or "OMG1010!!! ZIBRI AND DEV TEAM ROX MY SOX I LOVE ZIBRI AND DEV TEAM". Either worship the ones who found the exploits or worship the ones who maintain the repo's. I choose to worship Zibri

    Well, I agree and disagree, they did start the jailbreak actually with jailbreakme.com, also they do have there own repo and manage some of the "Community Source", but if you are fed up with the app itself go and get Cydia, I have that on my iPod, the only bad thing is you cant add repos yet, but way faster and reliable way to manage packages

    I do have cydia installed. I also like installer, but the problem is that everyone gives credit to installer and not the people who deserve it. If I knew how to code, I could probably make a crappy version of installer pretty quick. Just give credit to the hackers that make this possible and the repo maintainers who also make it possible.
    That took awhile to type on my iPod

    If people who don't know how installer works constantly praise it, so be it. If they don't realize they value of all the time developers put it, so be it. The truth is, an ignorant person's opinion isn't and shouldn't be given much thought. What can I say? Your judgment will always will clouded unless you have all the facts.
