    hey gang, so i'm pretty new to this. until today, i've never even used an ipod touch. so far today i've upgraded to 2.2, and i've jailbroken successfully. I have cydia and installer.app installed. my question is:

    1.) i'm looking for agile messenger. why dont i see it as an option to install? i assume i need to install a source package. how do i find which sources i need.

    2.) earlier today i had 1.1.4 and it was jailbroken, in installer.app i seeem to have had a whack more stuff to chose from, some solitaire games, even agile messenger as mentioned above. but now i dont see any of em. what do i do to get em back?

    k, u have 2.2 now rite.. dont ever use installer, only use cydia. and u should also have the appstore, thats the application store where u get all the apps such as games and social stuff. use that

    Don't delete it because it will be of some use again. Download BossPrefs from Cydia. Once it's installed open it and then open Poof. You can hide it. Just leave it there till you hear it's good again.

    ... and a lot of the programmers who used to release for Installer NOW exclusively release for Cydia, and Installer 4 hasn't been good since it came out. Saying it'll be "good again" someday is somewhat like saying that Apple will one day advocate jailbreaking and release their iPods and iPhones unlocked and ready for third-party developers to develop whatever they want without being censured by the App Store rules.
