Thread: Possible adware on cydia?

    ^Hmmm, I havent had the issue....

    But, by that description it sounds like someone is hacking the repos and/or packages, adding their own tags. My guess.

    I've had the download, install, crash problem; but never a youtube video of...*gulp*... Howie Mendel!!! It seems like when Cydia was updated with a new skin, things started getting buggy. I'm sure future updates will solve our problems; however, it does leave one wondering about you guys' Howie Mendel issues...

    okay this is what ive come up with:

    A few days ago my phone crashed and went into recovery mode. I updated to 2.2.1 in recovery, not in update, so ideally it should have wiped out everything and put it back to stock.

    I j/b'd it and started the process of rebuilding.

    Now this is where it gets odd.

    I installed poof, because there are some thing i dont use and really have no reason to keep them on the board.

    So i removed contacts, itunes, etc...

    This is going from stock.

    So out of shear curiosity, i opened up poof, and low and behold, there was font swap!

    Now im lost.

    I had at one point installed apt backup, but did not reinstall it after my last update.

    After jailbreak i had to rehide itunes and contacts...

    So here's this conundrum: why did it selectively hide fontswap and installer? And how was that information still in the system if recovery is supposed to clean out the system and go to stock?

    AND, where the hell did the howie virus come from, and where has it gone cause i havent changed anything?!?

    ...My head hurts...

    This time i was installing wifi toggle!

    I went to install, everything was working, and then cydia sad reloading data, exited out, opened up youtube, and there was howie and buy.com.

    It was still the same bluedonut06 guy and the video was up to 1.2 million views!
