    Since you are asking these questions you clearly are not in need of a repository.

    If you're seriously considering a repo, make sure you get a solid webhost, and that you have things that people want.

    I think he is more interested in theme development and having it posted to a repo not running his own repo.

    As far as 5 dock goes thats some heavy stuff there you should start out with simple app development but that will require you to have a mac unless you plan to compile and run the code directly on the touch. In which case you are going to need to know c/c++/objC

    For high-level app development see developer.apple.com For low-level stuff.. uhh wow, 'I' don't even know where to tell you to begin. Maybe learn C and assembler. Your going to need to know assembler and machine code to do some serious ipod hacking and patching stuff.

    you know, i think thats exactly what i need. being that i just installed debian gnu/linux on vista, and it explained that to finish the install, i need to move my partitions around, and i hadn't planned on doing that untill windows 7 came out to dual boot, so i guess my own repo is out of the question.
    so i guess my next question is this: is theme creating, or anything of that sort, even possible on windows? i know that the iphone sdk is, and will always be, only mac, and that almost all iphone development is done on a mac, so where can i start in that case? thanks again

    For themes just google 'create themes for winterboard' you will get a ton of tutorials with templates and directions.

    well i understand how to theme, i made a few and ssh'd them into my itouch, made some icons, custom battery, wallpaper, dock, status bar, sliders, the whole deal. how exactly are the files made that, when downloaded from a cydia repository, tell where to place the theme?
