    Default Newbie - help with my iPhone 3G 2.1
    I'm not sure if I'm on the right section or not but I need help with my iPhone. I just bought an Apple iPhone 3G 2.1 FW. I was able to jailbreak it with quickpwn 2.1. It worked well and it installed Installer and Cydia. I was able to get all the community sources for both Installer and Cydia but I noticed that the apps that are available is not as much as what my friend has on his iPhone. He is able to get apps that is not available on mine. Could it be becuase some apps are not available for 2.1 FW? The FW he has is the one previous to 2.1, which is 2.0 I think. Is there something I did wrong?

    After doing some searches, I was able to find more sources available for both Installer and Cydia but from what it looks like, the available apps I have is still the same amount as what I had before. For example, my friend has the thtouch poker game on his phone but I can't seem to find it on mine. I did some search on the web and it is suppose to be available on the Installer under the modmyi source but it is not showing up there. Can anyone tell me why?

    Give some examples of apps so we can know if they are from Cydia, installer or from the appstore

    Be sure to look under "Changes" in Cydia. Most of the stuff I download comes from that tab. I rarely venture in the "Sections" tab.

    Well some of the apps that are showing available in installer are:
    Catergories: ComicViewer, Flixwagon, Modplayer
    Games: Adikus Bachgammon, Adikus pool, Dames
    Productivity: FileViiwer, i2Reader, textreader

    In Cydia under the modmyi source:
    Abstract Racing SMS, chronus, ClaylayDtunes

    These are just some of the apps. There are alot more. I was thinking there would be more apps and games available but I can't seem to find them.

    Any ideas?

    what i meant is what are the games that your friend has that you want. we may know where to find them. there are some third party sites that users post their own stuff on that he may have...what games/apps are you looking to get?

    I found this: Flixwagon, Modplayer, FileViiwer & textreader, chronus. look in the (All Packages) section.

    Oh..ummmm...i was more interested in games. My friend has thtouch that I would like to install in my iPhone but I can't find it anywhere in installer and cydia. I found it in the appstore but I thought it was also available in the games section in Installer. I would like to see other games in there but only 4 shows up in Installer and about 15 in cydia. Am I going to the wrong section?

    Look at your friends sources list in cydia and add the ones he has and see if the games show up.

    THtouch is an appstore app for sure. never seen that in cydia or that crappy installer. the only reason it would be there is if it was cracked and hosted on someone elses repo. i have TONS of appstore apps and THtouch is one i use DAILY when im chillin in bed. i have the ipa.
