    You know how you first open up the brand new Cydia and it comes up and says who are you? It says hacker and other stuff. Under the hacker option thing what does it mean by command line and what can that do?

    If you're unsure what the other options mean, save yourself some trouble and select User.

    there are alot of terminal apps in cydia, a few are under networking, thats what selecting 'hacker + command line' will list those apps in Cydia; the average joe doesnt usually need the terminal, so awal is right, if you didnt know that, jus choose user

    User is for 99% of us. Developers and such will use the other profiles to help in the developing apps or making experimental changes. Changing the profile lets you see otherwise hidden packages.

    Seriously, if you aren't a developer or tech school grad, the apps that'll show up under "hacker", will be of no use to you at all.
