Three Awesome Cydia Sales You Won't Want to Miss Out On
Still trying to decide what to install on your newly jailbroken A5 device?
If you have recently jailbroken your iPhone 4S, then you are probably wondering what you should install on it. Chances are that either you got rid of your older iPhone to get it and you became rusty with jailbreaking since then, or you are completely new to the jailbreaking scene altogether. To help with that, we put together a list of useful free and paid jailbreak tweaks and applications that we know you'll just love. If you're continuing the search for that perfect application, however, then we will help you by pointing out some new sales going on in the Cydia store right now to celebrate the A5 jailbreak!
1. CallBar - 50% Off
The first sale that we know you'll love is with CallBar, a genius application that changes the way that you answer, decline, and manage phone calls on your iDevice. It is compatible with FaceTime, Phone, Skype, and Viber and works on iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. The recent update to version 1.0 brings with it a better-looking GUI (graphical user interface) and more settings to tinker with. CallBar puts a banner at the top of your screen that resembles the iOS 5 banners when you get an incoming phone call. Normally, when you get an incoming phone call, the phone application fills the whole screen asking you to accept or decline the call which is very obnoxious if you're playing a game or typing a message. CallBar is normally $3.99 in the BigBoss repo, but you can get it until this Wednesday (01/25/12) for just $1.99.
2. PwnTunes - 50% Off
This next sale is for you iTunes haters. If you have ever wanted to manage your iDevice content through drag and drop functionality instead of using iTunes to sync content back and forth, then you want PwnTunes. PwnTunes makes it so that you can use Finder or Windows Explorer to put content on your iDevice without ever opening iTunes. It makes it so that you can use more than one computer to manage your iDevice because normally when you connect to another computer, iTunes wants to erase your iDevice and sync it with the computer that you're using. With PwnTunes, you can combine media from two different computers without erasing anything. It makes owning an iDevice more convenient and it is updated to work with iOS 5 and runs on an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad. It comes with a free trial so that you can try before you buy. PwnTunes is normally $12.99 in the BigBoss repo, but you can get it until this Thursday (01/26/12) for just $6.99.
3. iRealSMS 3.0 - 50% Off
The last sale is for anyone who wants a more intuitive text messaging application. iRealSMS is a feature-packed text messaging client that replaces your Messages application. It has a whole ton of features that you can't get with Apple's stock Messages application. It supports contact photos, status bar icons, quick reply, quick compose, email text forwarding, conversation sorting, text message reading, and much more. iRealSMS is one of the original text messaging expander applications ever made for the iPhone. iRealSMS has been so widely enjoyed that it even made it into a New York Times article on November 25, 2010. iRealSMS comes with an unlimited free trial so that you can try before you buy. iRealSMS is normally $12.99 in the BigBoss repo, but you can get it until this Thursday (01/26/12) for just $6.99.

Not very wise to have a very short deadline for cheaper PwnTunes, because thousands of users will wait a longer time before jailbreaking their devices. Only the unwary rush to jailbreak their devices in this early phase.

I had BiteSMS but wanted to trial iRealSMS. is here a way to get iRealSMS to show contact picture and incoming text on the lock screen? I tried a bunch of different settings but when I get a text on lock screen it shows the native iOS 5 notification slider and only shows the contac picture with quick reply AFTER I slide the message slider. I don't like that.

$7 bucks for pwn tunes is steep. let alone $13. most I've ever paid is 10 for isx. then $8 for Celeste (which works on ios 5 but cocoanuts won't get rid of gremlin as a dependency, the only thing holding back from working on ups 5). cocoanuts makes me angry! not a very good dev. in the end, all he's doing is depriving himself of more sales

I went into cydia and searched for callbar but it didn't come up in fact nothing I am searching for is coming up.
There are no app's when I search.
Also went into my account and all (everyone and there are a lot) say Unknown up tps.
Below that it says Note: Cannot Locate Package
Is there a problem and how to fix?
