cydia is tech oriented, installer is app oriented. if cydia could do all the things that installer does like add sources,etc then it would a good general installer. Also the whole take "out bsd subsystem after you've jailbroken because mine is technically better" even if it causes you trouble just kind of tweaks me.I don't drink kool-Aid, I don't join cults.
This is why I break out in cold sweat going to Apple retail store.

Cydia has great potential, but it's just not there yet.

I have a question- WHY CANT THEY WORK TOGETHER?
Thats hillarious! Why cant they make only ONE file manager?

my question is, why no source manager in Cydia yet!!! thats the biggest feature it can have almost

It appears that Cydia and Installer do not know what each has installed, because the uninstalls don't jive. Can they really co-exist if two different lists are maintained?

well untill we can easily add sources to cidya there no point in even arguing, ciydia is crippled without custom sources, to be open source it feels almost as locked down as apple

cydia rules. Bottom line. It just makes more sense.
it's kind of like mac vs windows. Windows being installer and mac being cydia. Macs better.

I have to say I really don't know and if it was up to me I would say installer. Because sources could be installed for more packages and sconce it was the "first" 3rd party app indtaller I like it. Cydia on the other hand is newer and has lots of great features like A-Z sxrolling and java but also needs some minor updates and adjustments like sources and more then it will be the best.

well, soon the installer will rock. Cidia and installed must unite

I think installer had a better lay out and honestly, I have got used to it. But I thought Nullriver arent gonna update their installer for 2.0 so... looks like I'm forced to use Cydia.
Cydia isnt that bad though... I'm getting the hang of it.

im using both cydia and installer personally cydia is better due to fact that there is more in it at mo on 3g not much in installer i prefer layout of installer ,, cydia a little confusing at 1st

Installer 3: Buggy, ugly, no search, slow
Installer 4: Big, stupid layout that infuriates me
Cydia: open source, lean, fast, worksRunning:

This Poll is not accurate any more because it's started long ago. So we should stop it and replace it with a new Poll. I'm sure many people will want to change the vote after tried the lastest Cydia and Installer 4.
IMO, i changed my mind from vote for Installer 4 to vote for Cydia. The problem of Cydia is fighting the trade mark "Installer". Most of the people who own the 1.1.x iPhone only know about the Installer, not Cydia. And it's hard to change the habbits of them, even when Cydia is more better than Installer (buggy, big, slow,..).
I've seen many people who love Cydia, and also a lot of people who swear only use Installer, and i realize the fact that most of the developers (or experience users) love Cydia, and most of the normal user love Installer. And because most of the Repo are for the common users, most of them decide to host Installer Repo, not Cydia Repo. Just if Cydia can have as many sources as Installer have, people will immigrate to Cydia.

The amount of time it takes to respring after installing, well basically, anything from installer is just ridiculous.
