    I am looking for custom status bar icons (signal, 3g, battery, etc) and I cant seem to find functioning ones on cydia. In the "Post your lockscreen" a lot of people have custom icons.. where do they get them?

    Try MacThemes forums, if you look through the iOS release forums for the threads with StatusBar in them, you will find some nice ones.

    Aside from Cydia, what are safest sources for apps, tweaks, etc.? Whether it's to the status bar or anything at all?

    Thanks, man. You're not quite the jerk that someone called you ha.

    BTW, what exactly is a repository? Just a dump of all the packages you can download?

    you can activate them in winterboard then just move them above your theme in the list so it uses those status bar icons instead of the ones in your other theme folder

    if you mean you downloaded them on your computer, you ssh them to var/stash/theme/the theme your talking about/UIImages
    if your theme doesnt have a UIImages make that folder

    This is the stupidest answer that only absolutely dumb person can give. This forum like many others are for to help people and answers such as "use Google", "use search button"... are nonsense, if you have no clue than better keep your hands off keyboard, if you know the answer then just post it, post a link or some helpful things and then mention that you've found it using Google or whatever, and whoever you are helping to will appreciate that and possibly will use Google more often. Sorry guys, I couldn't hold it.
