Cydia Packager Looks To Replace Installer.app

Cydia Packager Looks To Replace Installer.app

Cydia is a front-end for Debian APT a mature packaging solution for Unix systems, designed to replace Installer.app and overcome many of its limitations. It was created by Jay Freeman, ie saurik.

In order to provide some relief for these issues, I have decided to start a project called Telesphoreo with the goal of creating a distribution of GNU and BSD's userspace for the iPhone as a collaborative, open-source project. The name is an ancient Greek word meaning "to bring fruit to perfection or maturity", which I feel is what needs to be done to Apple's product: it's passable as a phone, but as a portable workstation it is almost unmatched... with the right software.

For distribution, I have chosen Debian's APT, which I have ported to this new platform along with a few custom tweaks to integrate better with Apple's network settings. I have also spent the time to write a UIKit front-end to APT called Cydia, in order to make the transition easier for a larger number of users. (Cydia pomonella is the scientific name for the codling moth, which is what we often think of the as the stereotypical apple worm. I felt the name was fitting.)


You can try the Installer by adding http://apptapp.saurik.com/ as a source to Installer and install the package "Cydia Packager" from the "System" category.

ショップという対応では無く 事務的な感じを受けました。商品も 午前中に注文しているのに 店舗受付~発送と時間がかかり 商品が届いたのも翌々日と 同じ日に別のショップで午後に注文したショップなのに 翌日には商品が届いたと 印象は遅いな。と感じてしまいました。すみません。。ただ 商品に関しては 安心して購入できそうかな。。と云う感じはあるので 機会が有ったら また利用させて頂こうかな。。と思っています。 ★ルイヴィトン★ヴェルニ★ポシェット・クレ★小銭入兼用キーケース★M90348★ 小銭入れ兼用キーケース この形は大好きで 大きさは スイカも入り多目的に使用出来ます。 私は これで 3つめ。。今回購入を決めたのは 廃番と新品で有る事が理由ですが、お値段も納得の価格。届くまでまでは 本物?新品?大丈夫?と不安はあったものの 梱包も丁寧に商品状態も良かったので安心しました。ありがとうございます。

I have iphone 2G with 1.1.4 firmware. I installed cydia. Had problems. Then I restored back the phone back to 1.1.4 using in DFU mode and itunes 7.6, it first appeared that everything was back to normal. Later I discovered that the HOME button on iphone will not turn the phone ON after about a minute or so. I can still use SLEEP button to turn the phone ON/OFF. I am upset at myself for using CYDIA once. It appears that cydia has caused some problem. I am not a tachie and I am sorry to write this information. CAN SOMEBODY TELL ME HOW I CAN RESTORE MY PHONE BACK TO NORMAL?

How to Removal Cydia: I have iphone 2G with 1.1.4 firmware. I installed Cydia and all sorts of problems (the screen will light up occassionally, Home button will not work and some others) started. After hours of work I could not figure out how to ger rid off Cydia. At last, I restored my phone using itunes and then unlocked and jailbroke my phone using Ziphone 3.0. Please beware not to upgrade your phone to firmware 2.0 if you want to use Ziphone to unlock and jailbreak it Now everything is back to normal. If somebody have a better idea how to remove Cydia after installing it on your phone then please post. Thanks.
