Installer 4.0

  • To be honest, Cydia Installer is terrible. The interface is nowhere near as good as Installer. Most jailbreakers are just waiting for Installer 4.0 to come out instead of wasting their time with Cydia. Installer 4 is nearing completion. It will now be released to the major repository owners so that they can get their apps compatible with firmware version 2.0 fast.
  • Installer 4 will be released to be public in a few days. It has not yet been disclosed how Installer will be available. There are three options: Installer option in PWNAGE, Installer available as application download through Cydia or Installer avaiable as stand-alone download, either direct to iTouch or iPhone via Mobile Safari or available for SSHing manually.

2.0 Apps

As of now, hardly any of the old apps have been ported to 2.0 from 1.1.x, not even the ever - famous Cydia Installer is the replacement, though a new 2.0 compatible version of Installer, 4,0 is to be released shortly. It is said to have a modified interface. Customize 2.1 has been released for 2.0, though it has a lot of bugs.

A Great Source

A great source that I have found is:

Moo Cow Music

'Moo Cow Music' is an excellent producing unit for music instrument related apps.
You can create a band (iBand)and play instruments such as the guitar, bass guitar, piano, drums and a lot more!

Good Applications

Terminal - Term-vt100
Services (especially this)
Finder - mobileFinder

Recommended iAppCat Sources
The last one is my one and its fairly new so there's hardly anything on it.

Viewing the internal stuff of the iTouch

Do you want to copy some files onto your iTouch without using iTunes?
Here's the answer.
Firstly, you need a jailbroken iTouch,a Windows PC (or maybe Mac, I'm not sure) and a working WiFi connection.
On your iTouch, go to Settings/ General/ Autolock
Click 'Never'.
On your iTouch, go to
Choose Install/ All Packages
Find OpenSSH and install it.
In the unlikely event that you can't find it, add the source and then try again.
Once OpenSSH is installed on your iTouch, (no icon will appear) go to the internet on your PC and find and download the free software WinSCP. Install it on your PC.
Once installed, go to the WiFi network settings on your iTouch and press the small blue arrow next to a connected network.
Copy the IP address there word for word and type into WinSCP. (it will ask you to when you open it)
WinSCP will also ask you for a username and password. The username is root and the password is alpine.
Once ready, connect you iTouch to the PC, close iTunes if open and click on Login in WinSCP.
You are done.
The iTouch internal hidden folder (flash memory folder) will open up.
Enjoy editing, but be careful! Don't delete a file that is necessary for the iTouch to function properly.
Good Luck!
