    Default Jay Freeman has ruined my iPod touch 4X.......
    How many times has Cydia Crapped out your iPod, messed up your music directory, or taken 30 minutes to refresh?

    I've never had a problem with cydia. Cydia is far superior to Installer 4 and has great stability. You must have a really slow connection if it's taking 30 minutes to refresh. Even on edge, I can refresh within 5 minutes.

    well, i dont know if ipod and iphone might act differently but my ipod touch has perfect wifi signal i, within feet of the router, though the past 3 refreshes timed out on cydias end, i like cydia's interface better than installers 100% but for somereason when ever i use it for something i have to go through a 3 hour restore and resync/jailbreak process, im wondering if anyone else has had a problem such as cydia changes the directory of music or movies, to the point where you cant find them

    Cydia has given me no trouble and never has (though earlier today my refreshing kept timing out). Now the AppStore I abhor as it's slow and likes to reboot my device occasionally.

    well there is a reasonable argument for that one, apple made it...

    Long sync is a very common problem, on iPhones and iPods that aren't even jailbroken. If you have a problem that wants sorting, change your title, instead of claiming that saurik has ruined your iPod.

    'Occasionally' is an understatement.

    same here

    and thats incredibly ignorant of you to call jay out you should of just said cydia and the problem most likely is you keep clicking "restore from backup" after you restore

    Just to rule things out, why not run your ipod "stock" for a while and see if you continue to have issues. If not, it still isn't necessarily Cydia. Might just be an app that you have installed that is somehow effecting Cydia. If you do see the issues WITHOUT anything custom on the phone, you are most likely experiencing issues with your hardware

    Your probably crashing half the time because after you install an app you dont wait for the circle to stop spinning in the upper left hand corner. WAIT

    You can do that? From what I've seen, cydia doesn't let you quit out till it's finished.

    if you press the home burro while it's spinning it waits till it's done, then it crashes to springboard. Sometimes springboard works.but most of the time it just shows your wallpaper and nothing else, forcing you to do a force reboot (home and sleep at the same time)
