    I have done lots of research but still do not full understand what packages are? Do they take up memory? Do they cost money?

    As for sources I kinda understand what they are but im also unsure.... Do you have to type them into a url or download them from Cydia, Icy, etc? What exactly are they?

    Thx for all your help iPod Touch Fans!

    Packages are basically the downloaded object, which can be an application, theme, or something else.

    Sources provide packages.

    Yeah. packages tkae up memory depending on what ur installing, like a theme or a video each take up different amounts of space. only *premium* (aka Cydia Store) packages cost money, there are only a few and everything else is free, and for sources, most of the good ones come pre-installed, but if you need more, find the url and go into Cydia>Manage>Sources then click edit at the top, then click the plus sign, and then type in the url. enjoy.
