When to tell when it'll respring or reboot
Because I'm only semi-tethered I need to know what I can download OR how to tell the difference between something that'll only make me 'respring' or something that'll make me need to re-boot via PC.
Is there anything in the info/description that will tell me this?

Best bet is to just mess with cydia when ya near a pc or Mac.

Yea I agree, I think it's just because it's all new to me at the minute so I'm constantly updating

Respring if I'm not mistaken will not mess with ya. When ya have to re boot device is when ya need to have a pc or Mac to git tweaks and all back.

Yea that's how it works, I was wondering if there was any words in the description or title of whatever I'm download that will allow me to know if it'll need a respring or reboot.
I'll just have to learn to be patient and download things at home.

When using cydia it tells you after it's done downloading. But that is a good idea that maybe jay can add to it.

A simple "Requires Respring" or "Requires Reboot" text, somewhere, would suffice because by the time cydia tells you, it's too late.

That's correct. But at least ya git a semi tethered. I remember when we had just tethered. That was fun lol

Yea I bet! I don't think I would have bothered JB'ing if it was fully tethered.

Lol wasn't that bad just had to watch what ya did.

If you install something and it requires a reboot and you're not near a computer just press the home button, then kill Cydia in the app switcher then you can at least wait to reboot until you get home. Not really the best option but with most packages it should be fine. I do it all the time when I install something and didn't expect it to require a reboot and I've never had a problem.
