    haha, ok, it's not better really any ways, and i dont want to compare them anyway..
    but, (1) jailbroken, the iphone has cydia. personally, i think a cydia type repository based app would make the rooted droid soo much better. we could put apps, metamorph themes (finally could find good ones somewhere, and get them noticed), weird little hacks all in one place. it would be so great. maybe someone like sholes could set it up. does anyone agree? i think it would be awesome
    (2)- not as big a deal, but the iphone has soo many more themes. This goes along with the first point kind of. we need more and a way to organize/find them

    anyone agree we need a "cydia". i would even pay someone to develop it if we got a lot of repositories

    edit: i just realized this kind of makes it sound like i could help make something like this. i couldnt, but i'd like it and support someone who does make it

    i'm talking about rooted things. cydia is for jailbroken iphones, so this would be for rooted (jailbroken) droids

    sorry for not posting in the right section, but no offense, this does deal with the droid, so hacks might be more apporpriate. anyway, sorry, i just want to see if anyone else with a (rooted) droid would support something like this.
    cydia really is the only thing that makes the iphone better, imo

    More important reasons why the iPhone is worse than the Droid:

    1. It rips out my sideburns while I talk on the phone.
    2. No physical keyboard.
    3. Slower CPU.
    4. Can't change out the battery.
    5. Must use the ****tiest piece of crap bloatware on the planet, aka iTunes
    6. You have to use AT&T
    7. It will NEVER support Flash. EVER.

    Hey, I agree with you. Its just that it has better "jailbroken" stuff. I LOVE my droid, I just wish we had a rooted app like it does. Could we get one?

    I agree about the cydia thing, that's the only thing my iPod touch has that I wish my Droid did.

    Maybe, but with a title like this, I think this is better.
    There was a redirect left.

    isn't the sholes updater app a giant step toward that?

    No the sholes is just simple way of flashing a pieced together rom.

    I love the title of this thread, "2 reasons iPhone is better than Droid". How about "383829 reasons Droid is better than iPhone" :icon_ banana:

    How long has the iPhone been "jail broken" and how many of them are out there? The Droid has been rooted less than 2 months. Just wait.

    so do you think we will get one? because android has been out (and rooted) for a while and i dont think anyone else has a cydia-type thing.
    also, they are THE ONLY things better about iphone, THE ONLY ONES, if we got something, THERE WOULD BE NOTHING BETTER ABOUT IPHONE

    If I understand the Cydia system it was developed because stuff for jailbroken phones could be to the users through the apple market. Actually I don't think we will get anything like that, because android is an open framework system unlike the locked and closed one that apple has. The market is full of apps that deal with rooting and overclocking already. Any dev can put apps on the market because Google doesn't care about Rooting the way Apple does.

    I dont understand the point of this post since rooted apps are already in the market.

    yes that is a very true and good point, but still there are no metamorph themes (to my knowledge) in the market, and if it was a repository system then sholes and everyone else's downloads would all be in one place for us.
    agree?

    Just because the iphone has a couple features that the droid doesn't have doesn't make it better. Cydia would be nice but ill take flash over cydia anyday.
