    Cydia works fine on all three of my devices, never a problem. WinterBoard, so far, has proved itself 100 times more stable than SummerBoard ever was and I know that's true because I just said it.

    I've been using Cydia on 1.1.4 for months. I personally prefer it but a couple of apps I like are still py on Installer so I use that as well.
    Some like Cydia, some don't. Its a preference. Don't show your ignorance telling off folks who know more than you do just because you did not get the answer you wanted.

    Hello

    I had the same problem. Several times after I installed an app via cydia, the installation was was complete, I went back to cydia and the iPhone stopped to work. Reboot and the same problem the system wont run any more and I have to do a reinstall.

    Now I went to 2.0.1 and will wait for a more stable system/cydia/installer.

    Regards, Tommy

    i had the same problem where you see the progress wheel next to ur service icon and it just keeps spinning after you install something... The apps this happened to me on were openSSH and quake, although after i had to restore i got them the 2nd time.. Its weird because i would let me click around within cydia but i couldnt exit (even if i held down the home button) anyways im not bashing cydia i know this is a new version and some bugs have to be fixed, but i am in the same boat as you but i like cydia :-p

    I used Cydia on 1.1.4 and was happy with it. Even now on 2.0 I have no issue's. It is not perfect but better than nothing. No one forces anyone to use it, simple as that.
    @jayteez you should seriously watch your language !

    After restoring, and installing apps from cydia, as well as the cydia update, I then installed winterboard. I was able to install a different theme too. I had no issues whatsoever. I didn't do anything different than I did when I was trying to install from cydia with all my other apps and music already on the phone. When I did it then, my phone kept freezing up, no restart, no rebooting was possible.

    After playing around with the cydia apps to make sure everything was working fine, I then synced and installed the rest of my apps and music from itunes. So far so good. Everything is working great! Maybe I did do something wrong at first, but I don't think so. Has anybody else had this problem or have you all been able to add cydia apps after installing appstore apps on your phone?

    Default winterboard or cydia problem ?
    only issue I've had so far, is with winterboard. I installed it and also a few themes everything was good untill I decided to install the new icon that was released like summerboard with snow on it. As soon as I did that the icon disappeared totally from my phone and I had no way to access winterboard I tried uninstalling the icon and uninstalling winterboard.

    Ive since cleared all the installed themes and winterboard and tried a fresh install of winterboard but still the icon does not show on the dock, but poof sees the application is loaded even though you try to hide or unhide the icon nothing appears on the dock.

    I'm having to live without any themes at the moment.

    Does anyone know if this is a cydia or winterboard problem and can you suggest a fix?

    Help appreciated

    No offense, but I don't think the posts from people who Cydia is working great for are helpful. I'm happy for you, but doesn't help me.

    Well, after my last restore I decided to install a few less app store apps (I have about 30 apps total), and not to use passswd to change my password.

    I don't know which, or if either thing has helped, but I at least made it through a day without a Cydia freeze. Can somebody, anybody who has never experienced a Cydia freeze on 2.0 let me know your general setup? Are you using Alpine for passwd? How many app store apps, how many Cydia apps? Which ones?

    Cydia is a frontend for the apt installer. Cydia does 'nothing' without your interaction. As long as you don't click on the button Cydia and apt (or apt-get.. or apt-xxx) is not activ. There is no such thing as a 'running cydia block's or slow's down'-my phone thing. Maybe Cydia is not that easy a an 'i click only buttons to install games'-installer.. And if thats the problem. do not blame the app for it.

    iphone firmware 2.0. jb with winpwn using expert mode. put the cydia packages i wanted on there, and obviously cydia. not unlocked i'm using AT&T. during the winpwn i selected the "wipe partition" option, and as mentioned boot neuter is not installed (don't want to unlock). i have about 4 appstore apps and a crap ton of cydia apps. pw is not alpine, and not changing that is the stupidest thing i've heard. cydia doesn't freeze for me. i open it, it refreshes the sources in the background (like its supposed to, which is awesome btw). etc. as for posts not being helpful... you mention to stay away from an app that works fine for most users. those are the users replying to your topic letting you know that you're probably doing something wrong. deal with it. you chose the title, not them.

    edit:
    one additional note. you mentioned "after your last restore". that alludes to this problem happening after restore/jailbreaks. what jailbreaking software and what options. if something keeps happening is the steps you're taking. so lets start with the top. how are you JB-ing your phone? or if htat is just too much, why do you need the app then? if its giving oyu that much headache, why use it?

    This is the deal...iPhone user from day 1...modmyi member since before iphone was released (remember modmyi)...and customizing from the early days of ifuntastic v.1...MY POINT, im not new to this and I know my way around modding my phone and installing apps whether by ssh, installer, or cydia and I too am having issues with iphone freezing up. I have had to restore my phone at least 10 times and for the life of me can't figure out a pattern or common thread other than cydia. The only time my phone will freeze up and give me the "white pineapple screen of death" is when I am installing an app from cydia, using an app previously installed from cydia (ie. winterboard, tapdial, etc) or removing an app in cydia. So there is definitely a problem! I'm not saying it's cydia, who knows, once installer finally gets released same thing might happen....but there is definitely an problem. My wife has 3G as I do and we have similiar issues, but she has far less because she doesn't add or change as much stuff as I do. We gave my wife's old iphone to my daughter and have upgraded it to 2.0 and used pwnage with NO problems. Why? I don't know and it seems like no one else has any answers and i'm pretty sure that all the name-calling (on both sides of the issue) doesn't really help anyone. As for me, I love having control (even if just a little) of my iphone and none of it would be possible at this moment if it were not for cydia. So if I get the "white pineapple screen of death" again guess what, I will restore using pwnage and install apps from cydia once again, why, because right now it's all we have! And I do agree, bad title for the thread, maybe next time something that sounds like your looking for help instead of just slamming an app.

    I have been an iPhone user and a ModMyI member since day one as well. As far as people saying that this is user error on my part I would have to disagree. My solution is this. When you have a freshly restored 2.0 phone install everything you want off of Cydia. It works fine. Then put whatever App Store apps on there that you want. Then don't think about touching Cydia for apps or else it will eventually crash your phone. I have yet to try and uninstall all of the App Store apps then install new packages from Cydia. That would probably work. Just my 2 cents. Hope that helps somebody. I think I'm on my 16th restore at this point. Yay.

    Hello everybody, especially the ones who have problems with Cydia.

    It's not Cydia problems, it's AppStore/iTunes problems. From BigBoss:
    Apple iTunes Store Bug Workaround - iPhone News & Review

    So please don't blame Cydia or Saurik.

    My case, i have 155 AppStore applications in my iPhone, with the ones from Cydia and default applications. Fortunately, i didn't encounter any problems with Cydia like freezes or crashes. iPhone first Gen, pwn with winpwn 2.0.3, iTunes 7.7.0. And i did installed most of the application on Cydia before sync the applications from AppStore with iTunes.

    Hope this clears something out.
    Best regards,
    Hai

    Thanks Moonshine. Like I said in my post, even though I was only having the problem with cydia or cydia apps, one never knows why the "actual" problem is happening and when installer comes out we my have the same issue with it. So after reading what Big Boss had to say, it makes sense.
