    Hey,
    I've just made the jump from 1.1.4 to 2.2.1 and Im very, very lost.
    First up. (Root of my problem is I really really really want the Wallpaper App that i had on 1.1.4 and got off installer)
    I've got both cydia and installer. Cydia works great but what is going on with installer, I can't seem to add the appaday source (or rather get it working) so i can download the wallpaper app.
    So whats going on with Installer 4 and how do i fix it?

    Second
    on 1.1.4 i used SCP 4.0.6 (which i understood and loved)
    What is this SSH thing, where do i get it from and how do i use it?!

    I'm not a complete noob but need to understand stuff.

    Thanks

    Installer 3 sources do not work on 2.x. Unless the app you are looking for has been ported, you cannot use it on 2.x.

    OpenSSH can be installed from Cydia; there is a tutorial on SSH in the General Chat forum. Use Cydia for everything. Abandon Installer.

    well for the SSH thing, download Open SSH from Cydia and Win SCP from your computer. In Win SCP, put your IP Adress (you need Wi Fi), the user is root and the password is alpine.

    Another alternative is simply download Open SSH and Disk Aid from PC. Select Root from the bottom left (no Wi Fi needed)

    dont know what wallpaper app you are talking about. However, there are many wallpaper themes in Cydia which basically switch your background image every now and then.

    I understand to change backgrounds, but the app that I'm talking about Shared everyone's wallpapers and automatic ran them as a slide show and I could save the back grounds that i liked.

    ~the reason for 2 treads was i felt the first one was in the wrong place and it doubled my chances of getting help~
