    The Temp repo

    Open Cydia, go to sources, then edit, add and type in this repo

    http://cydia.myrepospace.com/gbatemp/


    I've sent out PM's to 3 people I feel should be repo mods, iFish, Shaunj66 and Dialexo.
    Maybe more people will be added maybe not


    If you want to add a theme, make it by following the guide here, and post a download link (preferably in a deb format)

    How to make a deb file

    The Control file

    1. Make a folder (preferably one letter (can be renamed later)), for the purpose of the tutorial it's called "Y"

    2. Create a folder in Y called "DEBIAN" (case sensitive), in this folder create a text file and put this in
    CODE
    Package: com.gbatemp.yourapp
    Name: Appname (No spaces alowed)
    Version: Number
    Architecture: iphoneos-arm
    Description: Small Description (this is just the line
    Homepage: Your Website
    Maintainer: YourName
    Author: YourName
    Sponsor: YourWebSiteName
    Section: Theme/tweak etc


    MAKE SURE THAT THERE IS AN EMPTY LINE AT THE END, IF THERE ISN'T IT WON'T WORK

    3. Fill in the necessary info and save as "control" (NO EXTENSION) into \Y\DEBIAN\

    For a theme


    1. Inside of \Y\ make a folder called "Library"

    2. In \Y\Library\ make another folder called "Themes"

    3. Finally in \Y\Library\Themes\ paste your theme folder (Plus a .theme at the end of the folder name ie. Megaman.theme)

    For an App


    1. In \Y\ make a folder called "Applications"

    2. In \Y\Applications\ paste your app folder (Plus a .app at the end of the folder name ie. iFile.app)

    Creating the deb file


    1. SSh into your device (if you don't know how to do this then follow the guide here)

    2. Navigate to \var\root\ copy/paste "Y" into this folder

    3. In the WinSCP terminal type this command (case sensetive and Y being the name of your folder)
    Code:
    dpkg -b Y
    3a. Or in the Mobile terminal type in the command
    Code:
    login root
    b. Then it should prompt you for a password, the password should be "alpine" (unless you've changed it)

    c. Now type in this command (case sensetive and Y being the name of your folder)
    Code:
    dpkg -b Y

    4. Now the deb file is in the \var\root\ folder, be sure to delete it after you have copied it to your computer

    The problem is, what would we have on it?

    Edit-- By the way, we don't have to use a free one. Cydia repos are really easy to set up, just time consuming to maintain.

    We don't really support illegal files, as you know. [​IMG]

    Meh, it would seem that it would be easier to just put them on MMi or something.

    well what do you guys mean bout illegal files? i thought jailbreaking is legal in us because apple wants happy customers but [Redacted] is still illegal.

    it sounds like a good idea but it needs to offer more than just themes.

    We host whatever we want, so probably just themes, we don't have to host [Redacted]

    I'm gonna go ahead and make one then, I'll post when it's up

    Nice iea, as soon as snow leopard arrives for my hackintosh and I've set up some apps I'll use it to post my Beta's. My full releases will go to a default repo like MMI though, so I get more downloads.

    Got the repo [​IMG] It is kind of slow, though.
    By the way, what's the icon pack? No screenshots...
