    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

    WHAT?!?!? I don't want pirated app, trust me, money isn't an issue with me. I just want a place where people can upload their themes and hacks. Cydia doesn't even have cracked apps..
    That is not what this is about

    Cydia, is a typ off underground app stofre. It was creeated by a man named jay freeman in order for people to install third party software on the iphone. The original was installer and was created actually before the appstore lol....wonder where steve got the idea. Back to cydia. It is a server where anyone can join by adding a repository. It allows for apps that apple will not allow in the store. Everything from system tweaks, themes, google voice and yes even pirated apps..hell it even has pirated apps of the pirated apps. All programs are installed as deb files and downloaded via the program......Jay even has peoples hashes saved I order to preserve a jailbreak......I think a cydia app would be great. One thing though the iphone does have the moto beat in one are. Games

    I don't think Android needs Cydia since the market is open. There's no secret dictoral "approval" process like with the app store. Honestly the App Store and Apple scare the hell out of me. Cydia is big on the iPhone platform because the app store is so locked down and closed that if you want any degree of customization over the OS you need to go to Cydia. Jailbreaking is far from a real solution for the iPhones weaknesses especially considering Apple is constantly plugging the exploits they use to get in, not to mention the recent iPhones and iPods have to be connected to a PC to boot if jailbroken (tethered jailbreak).
