Why Jailbreak: Get Even More Stuff With Repositories

CydiaRepositories1

Cydia only has a certain amount of applications when you first install it. The way that you add more applications is by adding more repositories, which are simply web addresses that you send Cydia to gather application information in order to install things. These Cydia repositories are numerous, and can be quite overwhelming if you don't know what you're looking for. It is for this reason that I am giving you a guide to Cydia repositories. To begin, I will tell you how to add a Cydia repository. First, open up Cydia.

After that, select 'Edit' in the top right corner, then 'Add' in the top left.

Then, you can select the source in order to see what applications that repository has to offer. In addition to that, the apps from the repository will be added to the main list of apps in Cydia.
