Did you try adding the depends to only ONE of your apps and then going back into Cydia and seeing if only the ONE app shows up under CHANGES?

Okay, so I started all over again, from scratch, and did everything the guide said to. Now when I try to install my theme, I get a pop-up that says Undetermined Error. What can I do about this or where did I go wrong?

Does anybody have an answer? All I can get is "Undetermined Error". Should I try to do it all again and see what happens?

Hi everyone, great tutorial, but i have a problem.
Once i made all this process, after adding the source i tryied to install one of my apps, and for some reason, sometimes my downloads doesn't finish or there is a messeage "SIZE MISMATCH" That happens with all my apps.
I don't think is the "size" at my package file because i do it like you said.
Any help would be appreciated!

Ok I muddled through this and it wound up working! You posted a really nice guide here! It just needs some slight procedural changes. I was initially very confused about steps 21-24 as we were uploading files to the server, then editing them there, then reediting the files on the desktop. We were also compressing files on the computer, uploading them to the server and then decompressing them on the server and then deleting some extra files if they appeared.
This is what I did to make it work:
I skipped step 21, step 22 (you'll do this later), and step 23.
step 24 edit the packages file on your computer, use this link
This program will generate the md5 hash on your .deb files.
Now save your packages file, then gzip -f Packages
Double click the Packages.gz file to extract the Packages file.
Then upload the debs folder, Packages, Packages.gz, and Release files to your server. You should only upload these files once they have been fully edited on the computer first.
I posted a tutorial for Mac users at my site. I'll look at incorporating the icons information as well.

Can someone explain the process of adding icons more thoroughly? We don't want the icons to show up as a line item in your folder as we want it to be a behind the scenes process so to speak. So exactly how do we do this?Hmm...

If you mean adding an icon for a package (like an app), its as easy as:
in your control file..
