    Based on the instructions on page 3, I'm guessing we just make a whole new package and those icons will not show up until you have installed at least one thing from your own repo so it will drag those other icons along with it for install. Then when you go to install your second package, the sections and sources icons will display at that point.
    Hmm...

    Ah - yah, you are correct. If your source isn't default in Cydia (those icons are included in the Cydia package itself), then you'll need to have your icons as a package, which each of your packages depends on - that way if they install anything, they get your repo icon as well.

    Instead of using a subdomain, how about just a folder? I don't know if that would solve your issue, but that's how I'm doing it. If the very nice guide on page 1 doesn't help, check out my guide, it's done in a different way and maybe you'll be able to follow along easier.
    Hmm...

    You state "Components: Main" in your Release file, but do not have a main/ directory... I'm sure you'll see what goes wrong when you check your webserver logs ;-)

    When I put my source in Cydia, I get a message about some bzip2-things.

    And when I get the message "Complete. Return to Cydia", and I press at my source, it is nothing there! I have put a app and a theme there, but it is nothing there! I did all the steps!!

    What should I do?

    My source: isimagan.co.nr/repo

    i think you should type bzip2 intead of gzip
    eg. bzip2 Packages

    because Cydia didn't regonize gzip file

    Excellent, well written guide. But after reading thorugh the thread and double checking my process, I get the following error when attempting to install my theme-

    HTTP:1. 401 error or something like that, and the second time, I got Host unreachable.

    Anyone?

    Not sure if you have a copy of dpkg-scanpackages in your local dir, instead of just using the system-wide installed version from ubuntu's dpkg-dev package, but it's probably not the right mode.

    Drop the "./" in front of "dpkg-scanpackages" and separate the "." in front of "/dev/null" with a space (they are 2 different arguments to dpkg-scanpackages.

    Oh yah, if you have the downloaded dpkg-scanpackages, put it in the repo folder and execute this:

    ./dpkg-scanpackages -m . /dev/null > Packages

    Instead of:

    dpkg-scanpackages -m . /dev/null > Packages

    The ./ symbolizes that there is a file called that name that will execute

    Anyone figure out how to add a USERNAME and PASSWORD to your repo? So that when users add your repo they need a username and password. Similar to logging in via FTP etc.

    EDIT: Okay another problem.. I can't download my package - it's a WinterBoard theme. When I tap "Install" in Cydia, I see the black installing screen that says Running at the top, but nothing gets installed and it immediately goes to the "Return to Cydia" button with Complete at the top. There are no new themes in WinterBoard. What do I do wrong?
    Make sure you put a sub folder under "MyProgram" called "Library" under "Library" put a folder called "Themes" then put your theme in there. It should work then.

    I suggest you add that file then... ;-) It is the file that should describe what is in the package.
    See 'man 5 deb-control'.
