    Okay, this will install directly on your iPod/iPhone:
    1)Open Cydia
    2)On the bottom, select "Search"
    3)On the search page, select the search bar and type T-o-o-l-c-h-a-i-n then press search
    4)Select the first, and only item on the list "iPhone 2.0 Toolchain
    5)In the top right select "Install"
    6)Again, select "Confirm"
    7)Wait for it to finish(may take a couple minutes), then select "Return to Cydia"
    8)Now Press the home button, and it should return to the SpringBoard.
    9)Now wait like 5 minutes for me to get a simple app done for you to test.

    You can basically put them anywhere. You just have to use a terminal to change the directory to where you would put your files, like this:
    Code:
    cd /Applications/AppName.app/
    
    or
    Code:
    cd /private/var/myfiles/
    
    Then once you are in the directory where you files are located, then you just type the command 'make' to compile the applications.
    Code:
    make
    
    Once that is finished, you have to create a folder in the /Applications/ directory called 'YouAppName.app', and in that folder you need:

    Code:
    Must haves:
    Info.plist
    An excutable file
    
    These are optinonal for now:
    icon.png
    Default.png

    Jiggy = Low-level programming language for iPhone/iPod Touch applications

    Objective-C = Main programming language for iPhone /iPod Touch applications

    Toolchain = The program that compiles objective-c source code, turns it into an executable file, so the iPhone/iPod Touch is able to run it.

    Applications for Cydia = All applications made. No matter if they're made from Jiggy or Objective-C.

    thanks. So the main one to learn is Objective C? I bought a book on Objective C there are some paragraphs that I get lost in. Should I continue to read? My main thing is to learn but if theres an easier way please let me know. Thanks again.
