Just point me in the right direction, contact, site, forum, YouTube site, whatever, so I can develop good habits early. I want simple, basic advice, suitable for a beginner with no computer literacy. Thanks

    Cydia is pretty straightforward. Browse for featured packages, search for packages, browse by categories...etc.

    You don't just find out what you like or want with jailbreak tweaks overnight, and you don't need to install a bunch of new stuff in one sitting. Some basics to have include SBSettings, Winterboard, springtomize 2...but it takes time to figure out as a new jailbreaker what's good for you.

    There isn't a need to go looking for what other people think is good or not, it's your preference. Just look through Cydia whenever you get time to. My personal recommendation is in Cydia itself, go to the featured tab on the home page and you'll find different things in there, including starter tools.

    No computer literacy, you say? Well, in that case, a tip I can give you is that you don't the user mode on Cydia as Developer or Hacker. Just use User and you will get many goodies.

    But other than that, i.Annie really hit right on the nail. It's hard to give you pointers of what to get and what not. There is no "Start Kit" like you can find in App Store apps, but Cydia's Featured page can do wonders for you.
