    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.

    Yes and that goes also to why there is no Cydia - numbers. There aren't enough rooted Droids/android phones out there yet to make it profitable. The folks developing themes are generally one-off kind of folks with no thought toward earning money. When there are as many rooted Droids as there are jailbroken iphones, there will be plenty of themes on the Market or the guy in california that started Cydia, will add android to his website. It's all about the numbers. Root and they will come.

    Did you read your own post? The first thing you wrote was "two reasons the iphone is better..." don't blame me for the fact that you didn't word it correctly. Besides I agreed that cydia would be nice.

    No harm done. Its funny because I find myself getting really defensive anytime the iphone is mentioned. Sometimes I forget that the ipone is not my enemy.

    Having a section for roms like on here is fine for me and probably more ideal. Android is an active users os ... the iphone is more gimmie gimmie and I don't want to do anything to get what I want.

    Interesting...I'm not sure that I agree with you but yes the iPhone OS does support theming through Winterboard.

    Not sure about having a repository for the sole fact that the Market is pretty free as it is in posting themes, skins, and apps. Heck there are even root apps on the Market. The only problem is that it block access to people that may not be able to afford 25$ to post to it.

    that is a very good point, but there could be places for people to post things they've made to share with the community

    Basically I believe the OP just wants pirated apps. That would not be good since the market isnt mature. A friend of mine made a. 99 cent game for iPhone and it was downloaded illegally 30,000 times, and paid for like 500. Apple could care less too. Google allowing everything including rooting apps on the market is smart so something like cydia doesn't pop up
