    The first thing I would like to say is that I am not a noob.
    The second thing I would like to say is that my ISP is giving me a few issues right now, so i might have searched and had not gotten the right result.

    Now to my question:
    I am experienced to jailbreaking (Like so experienced, i've been doing it for like a month and a 1/2 *Sarcasm*) but, I must know one thing.

    What the hell is source code. And if a developer gives it to you how do you use it.
    An example is this thread, in which Skylar gave the source code for the bluetooth icon hack. How do i use this? What do I need to do this?

    Thank you for your time.

    Source code is what a compiler reads to create an app. I would use Xcode, and input the header (.h) and the main (.m) files, compile the code (put it all together) and the output would be an app (like the bluetooth icon in Skylar's example.
