i have just updated to 2.0.1 and have problems with both!! Can someone please help me?
Installer 4 - No search facility? Not that I can see anyway!
Cydia - Every repo I try to add I get told "Did not Find Repository" and this is while adding proper Cydia sources, not Installer ones.
I just want one that works, or is it really the case that barely any of the old 1.1.4 apps that I loved are available on 2.0.1?!

there is no search in installer because there is so little apps so there is no need for it and Cydia is completly different than installer in that the source from the old installer will not work with cydia. Cydia sources need to be APT sources so old sources are not gonna work. Do a google search and u will see

Well, pre-2.0, Installer was pretty nice. There were plenty of issues, but it worked. Cydia, well, wasn't as 'pretty' as installer. However, installer has gone downhill. Cydia is awesome now. It has pretty much everything one could desire in a package delivery application.And it will be like a taco inside a taco within a Taco Bell that's inside a KFC that's within a mall that's inside your dream!

I needed installer on 1.0, but when I updated to 2.0 and pwned I got cydia and installer. I used installer first because I was used to it, however I've had nothing but problems ( bad URL message ) I decided to try using cydia, I was apprehensive at first but now I love it. Installer gets no play. I think it works great and I don't mind the wait for apps. It's provided me with almost all the essentials I need and alot of what I wanted. Death to installer!

Installer was great pre 2.0 but since 2.0 it's just too little too late. Installer is buggy and ugly while cydia has made huge improvements

remember installer is still in beta when officially released i hope that many sources will be available but for no cydia has it all and works well i sometimes wonder if i should downgrade back to 1.1.4 from 2.1 but there are only a updated apps when refreshing if any i do miss islsk and really hope it will be released soon for 2.1

Why use Installer on 2.x? It is proprietary piece of crap, has virtually no apps/sources, ugly, slow. And it's being "developed" by a bunch of assholes who only interested in making money on it.
So, say good bye to Installer and start living with Cydia.

Cydia is faster, easier, and better. More repos for it.
Installer is really laggy, crashes alot, and does not have alot of sources like Cydia.
Some new beginners think Installer is better cause its a little better Gui, and less loading on startup. But Cydia is much better once you test both of them.
