You can read all about Cydia here: http://www.modmyi.com/forums/news/39...cydia-out.html
The quick answer: Both are good. There are many programs that are only available via Installer though so it's a good idea to have both.

i use installer. for the non-devs out there i dont see the point in cyndia, it has no ability to easily add sources on the go so its limited to whats up there already, not cool. installer has WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAy more stuff on it so untill cydia catches up i dont need it. no point in having both especially if you have to use installer to get cyndia LOL, defeats the point. but if you jailbreak and it comes with it then why not keep it

Can it be, that I have cydia and not installer?
I thought you needed installer to get cydia on the phone, but I only see and have the cydia icon?

Cydia is everthing Installer is and more and already works on 2.0 so why the desire to have Installer on 2.0? Your 1.1.4 apps won't work just because Installer is on there...

I would love installer too. By the way, I'm typing this from my 3G iPhone jailbroken using windows vista :] I'm on the AT&T network, fyi..

Windows Vista? What are you talking about?
As to the other post, I agree. Cydia is the EXACT same as Installer, and to me, it has more features and feels more stable. I think its fine, no need for Installer herei LOVE apple.

sorry if i was vague, i meant i WAS typing the response on my 3G iphone, and that the 3G iPhone was jailbroken using my windows vista PC. not any shennanigans like my 3G iphone would be running apple vista or some sh*t like that :P my apologies.
and, for windows users who have a 3G iphone on AT&T (since it can't be unlocked yet), if you just follow these directions to jailbreak/activate(but again, i'm making it clear it won't unlock for other carriers)... then you're golden!

I changed the permissions on Cydia on my newly pwned 2.0 iphone to 777 admin root and now it doesnt work. Any Ideas. I changed it back to 755 and it still didnt work
All these files inside Cydia.app need to be 6755 permission admin:root
and Cydia.app is 755 Admin:root
Hope this helps anyone else having issues

Cydia is more than ugly. Absolutly Un-Apple.

Yes, seriously I hope Nullriver updates Installer.app soon! This is the only thing that is keeping me from Jailbreaking right now. I've never been a fan of Cydia it always seemed to not work as well as Installer.app and yea I think we all know the 1.1.4 apps aren't going to run. I mean I know it pretty much has all the same sources and apps as Installer but not a fan. Another thing is Cydia has a pretty horrible UI compared to Installer.app.
Boo to Cydia haha.
