    Does anyone know what the current URL is for the BigBoss repo? Couldn't find it on their website or teh Googles & I need to add the repo to Cydia on a recently JB'd 8GB iPhone. Thanks!

    Thanks - I ran into that while searching, too. I know it's "Http://apt.thebigboss.org/repofiles/..." Just don't know what's supposed to be there instead of and after the "...".

    The full URL doesn't display in "manage sources" in Cydia, and I can't find the URL on their website. It seems like I'm making it harder that it has to be, but I seriously can't find the rest of the URL...

    Bump...

    Sorry to ask again, but does anyone know how to add this repository (specifically the URL) to a jailbroken phone that does not already have it?

    You can't add "default" repos to cydia manually, they won't work, they follow different APT structure.

    You need to create a file call "bigboss.list"

    add this in that file:

    Code:
    # do not edit this file to add your own custom sources
    # this file is subject to be upgraded as part of a package
    # either add your own .list file to /etc/apt/sources.list.d
    # or add your entry to the global /etc/apt/sources.list file
    
    deb http://apt.thebigboss.org/repofiles/cydia/ stable main
    
    save the file on /etc/apt/sources.list.d/

    respring and you should have it on cydia now.

    I see... I thought you could simply add it like other repos (i.e. PodZombie, etc.). Now I'm wondering why it didn't show up originally (JB'd 8GB iPhone w/ Spirit)....

    No you can't add them just like any other, those repos have different braches (stable, beta, alphas, nasty builds, etc), and user permissions, source builds, etc.

    and yes, the fact you didn't get it on install is a sign that something went wrong, I would re-jailbreak and if that doesn't work, restore + Re-jailbreak
