    Funny thing is, Saurik apparently was taking notes when he created the new Cydia since it duplicates the good things about Installer 3 from 1.1.x (fast, efficient, has a search box, no huge graphics)... minus the 'add to queue' option. And RIP Dev threw all that away to try to make Installer like App Store's fat cousin.

    This time when I jailbroke I didn't even bother putting in Installer, just Cydia. Every program I know now has Cydia repositories, so there is no reason to bother with Installer, which has been completely unstable since being introduced into firmware 2.0. Each new beta version is worse than the previous one. Just avoid using the program.
