Does everyone know that Linux and osx are unix programs? They're practically brothers.

I've downloaded all the .deb files from Cydia for the 6.1 compatible theme tweaks now. I have them on my Mac ready to load back to my JB'en iP5 after jailbreak thru iFunBox (no SSH necessary). So I'll be up and running with most of my theme tweaks in minutes after JB. Gridlock is not done yet and that's a major buzz kill.. but..
Read about my procedure starting in post #15 here:
Beat the system- and getting iOS6 tweaks from Cydia now before JB release

Can you give me a particular example of a tweak where you think its .deb won't do that and Ill test it too? Thanks!

-Jailbroken your phone
-Cydia is installed
-You want to install 'Gridlock'
Gridlock has dependency files which it relies on to work and one of those is Mobile Substrate. Not all tweax require MoSub for them to function. So, MoSub might not be pre installed w/ this new, revamped version of Cydia. If that's the case, you will still encounter problems w/ the BigBoss server trying to retrieve MoSub for you due to the high traffic.
I hope that makes sense! This is why I'm asking if you have these dependency files saved, just in case, not 'every' dependency file is pre-loaded.
BTW, I have created a .deb file that installs 'most' of the Dependency files for situations like this. If your method doesn't work and you can't get all the files you need from Cydia and assuming my .deb worx (LOL!), I'd be happy to share it w/ you!

Are these other examples of dependency files you're referring to?
02-02-2013, 10:09 AM #93
As far as your screenshots, the first pic contains a few of the required dependencies (but not all) and your second screenshot are all related to iFile so those dont come preinstalled, either.

Otherwise how would the average jailbreaker ever get MoSub on their phones to begin with? They don't go to Cydia - download Gridlock, and then suddenly find it not working after they respring. It just WORKS! Why? Because in the .deb for Gridlock - MoSub was installed. My point being - is that there's no way, if you have the 'full install' .deb for Gridlock (which I do for all tweaks I've gotten) that you won't have the dependency files also getting installed. Agreed?
Did you read my method? It's not original with me - it's just not very well known it would seem. You just go into a jailbroken phone, now before the new JB releases and Cydia severs get killed - and 'reinstall' a given tweak - BUT --> BEFORE you hit Restart Springboard or Return to Cydia open your favorite SSH software or iFunBox (non SSH) and navigate to: /private/var/cache/apt/archives and hit the refresh key. You'll see the .deb for the tweak you just downloaded in that window. Save it to computer and you'll have the 'full install' of that tweak - which per my understanding INCLUDES dependency files. Once you copy that .deb file (which for most theme tweaks, today, is the 6.1-ready tweak) to Cydia/AutoInstall after you're jailbroken on the iP5 with 6.1 and reboot twice - you'll have that tweak AND its dependency files reinstalled. Right?
What am I missing?

When you do a reinstall, it only installs the tweak, no dependencies. Why? Because the dependencies are already installed. I tested this last night and thazsar appears to be correct in his assessment of this.
Just my $.02

When I have used the autoinstall method for installing ultrasnow I also had to have the .deb for mobile substrate. The ultrasnow .deb does not include it. So if you are gonna do your method for installing .debs manually with autoinstall you will need the mobile substrate .deb too as well as the .deb files for any of the dependancies of whatever tweaks you are installing. Luckily mobile substrate is normally it, but some may need other things such as activator.

I wonder what will go haywire with my 4S when I remove MoSub though... LOL!!
Thanks, King AND Thazsar!
And in your example with Ultrasnow - how could Cydia install a tweak WITHOUT its dependency files and expect the average user to be able to know what else to find? That doesn't make sense to me.

Just FYI, Cydia does "know" weather or not the dependency is installed. When you install a package that has dependencies, Cydia checks to see if you have them installed or not. Then if you don't have them, it grabs them too. If a tweak needs 5 dependencies and you already have 2 of them installed, then it will just install the other 3. I'm really not sure how you make sure you got them all, unless you completely uninstall all your tweaks and reinstall them and then after your JB on your 5 you install them in the same order.
Does that make sense? Trying not to write a novel here.
