    I have come up from 1.1.4 to 2.1 jailbroken using quickPWN and now have an installer + cydia.

    Installer is the same as it was back on 1.1.4 but cydia seems like the exact same thing - just with a different layout.

    There is also not much on either of them - in terms of content, on cydia i have about 10 different sources but all i can seem to find in terms of apps is wallpaper packs...unlike 1.1.4 that had huge amounts of cool apps. My installer on 2.1 only has about 3 sources too and i haven't managed to find a single app from before...like sketches , iphysics ect.


    Can anyone recommend some of the best things for me to try out on jailbroken 2.1 please?

    In my opinion

    Cydia works best on 2.x
    Installer works best on 1.1.x

    Most apps are in the App Store.
