    Default Can Cydia Add Sources, So I can DELETE Installer?!!!!
    I am so tired of installer!!! Every other day there is an issue (mine is crashing, and the package download error thing is going on, it's slow, what else???)

    Can Cydia help these developers covert their plists, so we can move on with our lives!

    I'm losing control!!!

    COMPLETELY AGREE god between every bug and then every other bug added in each version installer is pretty much impossible to use.

    I think her suggestion was pretty reasonable if not a good idea.

    Yeah it was but we don't need new threads for every complain. I understand what she means because installer is real slow, but things take time.

    Ste's Cydia source is nearing completion. That's over 300 packages more to be added to Cydia. I hope that's good news to you.

    I would join the bandwagon but it is much more fun to sabotage it so the back wheels fall off. But Installer is very slow. Very very slow.

    so cydia is adding 300 of their own packages? As in their choosing the packages? Wouldnt it be better if we just got I add our own sources?

    You can't add sources in Cydia yet, but that doesn't matter quite yet anyway - Installer sources don't work in Cydia, they're Installer sources. Completely different backend.

    oh damn i see what you mean, i thought any source would work on cydia guess not, so all sources would have to convert to cydia or something. haha maybe shutting down installer and forcing everyone to switch to cydia, or making some kind of source converter to make it compatible with cydia that would be nice

    You must be one of those people who lives and stands by their principles, and I respect that. However, a few out of the bunch fails to realize and accept reality. You fail to leave behind your principles and listen to reason. If you don't follow others, make your own jailbreaking/unlocking solution and compile your own apps.

    It seems as if you only joined a few months ago, yes this account is brand new as I've forgot the previous password to MMi and access to my email account to restore the password. I had to leave the iPhone community because my job required a specific device, but I've been around since 1.0.1. However since my last use, it seems as if Cydia is widely accept as to when it first release.

    Cydia is available now, Installer is soon to be release, however what is wrong with a bandwagon calling for developers to release apps on a single installer. And yes, Installer was the since beginning, however competition is healthy.

    Cyndia is much better, it uses light weight fake bsd subsystem which wont mess ur iphones base system. If cyndia had better source system it would be no.1 easily.
