    Default "Jailbreak" mac ~CYDIA~
    i just saw the keynote from apple. they are making an app store for macs: i was thinking saurik should hop on this, along with jailbreak devs and create a cydia for mac. i guarantee the app store on the mac will have strict rules for apps. if they were to make a cydia for mac you could possibly have just as big of a hacking/modding base as the iDevices.

    considering the base of jailbreak is obtaining root access, and you obviously have root access on your computer, then you should be able to create a secondary store with the freedom of cydia. also with this development you could have it install the same way (just like the app store), which way more people would like.

    please say what you think about this in the comments, I really hope this is possible.


    if this happens steve jobs may just break out in butt hurt tears on stage who doesnt want to see that?!

    I will explain this more but I think it could actually be cool... it doesn't have to be cydia but just the same concept.

    So what you're saying is the only advantage would be the packaging system? Sounds just like Linux… Anyway, I just don't think that's big enough of a benefit for Saurik to try to expand his servers over 50 million more devices. He already can't get everyone's SHSH saved.

    i agree with what your saying, the server space would be huge. i just think that this could be interesting and also all the cool apps that dont make it through apple could be hosted through cydia.

    or they could be hosted on the website of the developer, like most software
    i see no reason to have this

    Came across Cydia for Mac where you can submit a cydia mac application, looks promising.
