Cydelete, no more having to go into Cydia to delete Icons/Apps

The one thing that makes App Store Apps more convenient than cydia apps is how you delete them. With Applications from the App store you just have to press and hold on and icon until they start shake and press the "x", easy. For cydia applications you have to open up cydia, wait like 5 minutes just for the sources to refresh and then uninstall. Well, that's all going to change now!

Introducing the new application called "cydelete" from Cydia allows you to delete apps the same way you would delte App Store apps. How convenient is that?? Try it for yourself open up cydia and search it!

New! For Active Theme Makers(this is for you) Have a different image on each page of Springboard!

Yesterday, 03/16/09, Winterboard had an update. (If you haven't been on cydia go on it and update!) The changes in the update are listed above^^
  • Made Wallpapers Work Again
  • Prioritize Apple's ImageCache
  • Per-page Wallpaper Page#.png
So how do you create a basic theme with different images for each page??
  1. Just create a folder (name it whatever you'd like)
  2. Drag in some pictures into that folder.(Same number of pictures as you have pages on your iPod/iPhone)
  3. Make sure you can see the file extensions of the images.
    • To view file extensions on Windows XP go to any folder on your computer and look on top it should says Tools-->Folder Options-->View-->Uncheck Hide Well Known Extensions
    • To view file extensions on Vista/Windows 7 go to control panel and in the search type in "folder" and it should say folder options somewhere then go to View-->Uncheck Hide well Known File Extensions
  4. All the pictures you have in the folder you created earlier need to be named like so:

    Each name corresponds with which page number you want it on. Page0.png(page 1) Page1.png(page 2) Page#.png(etc..) MAKE SURE TO CHANGE THE ENDINGS TO .png

  5. Once you have renamed all your images correctly you need to SSH them into your Themes folder on your iPod/iPhone.
    • Don't know how to SSH themes from your computer to your iPod/iPhone??
HERE IS A PREVIEW OF HOW IT WILL LOOK(I did this real quick, it's kind of sloppy)

Hope that was informative enough. Have any questions?

Untethered Jailbreak for iPod Touch 2nd Gen!

Option 1
Quickfreedom(Kind of like Quickpwn)

Option 2

No more coding when you accidently turn off your iPod! Untethered is out

BEFORE you begin, restore your iPod Touch clean to it's factory state.
As with every other tutorial you need the C++ redistributable and LIBusb
(if you've jailbroken before you should already have them)

Download Libusb here
Download Microsoft C++ here

1.First download Unofficial Redsnow 2.0 for windows and extract the folder to your desktop

2. Get the 2.2.1 Firmware Here

3. Rename the 2.2.1 ipsw to OriginalFW.ipsw and place it in /IPSW

4. Run IPSW.bat (It will take a while)

5. Replace the llb.n72ap.RELEASE.img3 in your new JB.ipsw with the one located under /IPSW preferably using 7zip to avoid corruption.
(you can also use winrar, by either changing the file extension to .rar or open it up as a .rar file some other way and deleting the lib.n72ap.RELEASE.img3 and replacing it with the new one)

6. Place your iPod Touch 2G into DFU mode and run RUNME.exe

7. Shift + Restore to JB.ipsw in iTunes and your done!!!
