    sounds promising, but why did it take so long to come about? Seems to me now is a worse time due to Apple's stance on just jailbreaking the phone...

    I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.

    Cydia's been around for a long time, he's just making it public now to bring more attention to Jailbreaking and Apps that are not in the App Store. He's making it public now probably because Apple is trying to make Jailbreaking illegal.
