    Starter kit - Look here for 1.1.4 fixes!

    Using iAppCat, I have created a "starter kit" for 1.1.4. It is a collection of 70+ apps and fixes, all in one category. This links to 3rd parties, so the repository and this guide come "as is", with no warranty, so use at your own risk. I am not responsible for any damages.


    Some News Updates

    - For some reason all the package URLs are being moved/renamed. So, I am having to check each package for download errors. If a package isn't there in the repo, and it was before it means im looking for a fixed package. This has been quite a headache for be and I hope to have everything fixed soon.

    - BSD Subsystem has been removed and Cydia has been added. Cydia provides a much more powerful subsystem. Remember to keepthe Cydia packages up to date by using cydia. Cydia uses APT, a packaging system that has still serves Debian and Ubuntu well. You can still use Installer, just DO NOT use BSD Subsystem with it. If you want to use Cydia, UNINSTALL the subsystem first.
    Many of these packages are for are for 1.1.4 only. however, these will be updated as new firmwares are released.

    - The Old Customize, Modded Mustomize, and summerboard have been replace with Customize 2.0 Beta xx. Please uninstall any old Customize and/or summerboard before installing Customize 2.0.

    Here are the advantages

    - Forget about adding tons of repos to find and app that works

    - Fast refresh because you only need a few sources

    - One category, so, when using a queue install is quick

    - Because it uses iApptap, this is not a hosted source. Think of it as a collection of links to sources you already trust

    - I have included every 1.1.4 fix and mod (i,e. passwd and SUID fix, backspace fix, modded costomize), summerboard fix I can think of. 1.1.4 is near flawless on my ipod

    - Have a friend who is new to jailbreaking? One source and he/ she will be off to a great start with little help from you

    - Want to restore your device with the hassle? Use this this source and get back to bliss fast!


    Why use mine rather than using iAppCat to make your own?

    - I've done the work of looking for some of the "most" used apps

    - I check each package for broken links or compatibility issues

    - I am constantly looking for better packages to add; this will always stay up-to-date.


    To get started:

    Requirements

    - A jailbroken 1.1.4 ipod touch/iphone


    THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVE HAD 1.1.4 ISSUES IN THE PAST.


    RESTORE YOUR IPOD TO 1.1.4, END ALL ITUNES PROCESSES AND ONLY CLICK THE JAILBREAK FOR THE IPOD TOUCH BUTTON IF YOU HAVE AN IPOD THE REST OF THE GUI IS FOR THE PHONE. IF YOU DO THIS, YOUR JAILBREAK SHOULD BE FINE. DO NOT RESTRE WITH BACKUP!

    This has been fully tested with my 8GB ibod touch. If you have any questions or suggestions, just reply here


    KNOWN ISSUE : SOME PACKAGES ARE CLAIMING THAT THE CONSTANTLY NEED UPDATING. THIS IS NOT TRUE. THE PACKAGES THAT I HAVE LISTED ARE AUTHENTIC AND UP-TO DATE I CAN NOT FIX THIS FALSE NOTICE BECAUSE I AM SIMPLY LINKING TO OFFICIAL SOURCES. SO THIS OCCORS ON THE OFFICIAL SOURCES; THIS CAN ONLY BE FIXED BY THE ORIGINAL SOURCES. I AM SORRY FOR THIS ANNOYANCE AND HOPE THAT IT IS A MINOR ONE.


    Also, please not that my source consists entirely of links; thusly, I can not modify the packages in any way. I do howerever, check their integrity before I post them.


    I will subscribe to this thread.
