    I apologize for all the threads but I am pretty new at the whole iphone thing. Anyways I was wondering after I install a package or app from cydia what do I do? I guess what I am asking is how do I use it or run it? Or does it do that on its own?

    Thanks

    You need Winterboard. You can find it with the search function in Cydia. This will give you a list of all things you've installed (and some others Saurik included in the programming) that you can select to activate.

    I would think so. I can't say for sure if it'll remove the changes you've made though.

    Why wouldn't you want it on your phone? It has a pretty good looking icon. :D

    Well I hesitated messing with cydia because I dont know very much about it. So is winterboard harmful to the iphone at all? Will it cause it to lag?

    Absolutely not. It just had a serious upgrade that improved the power and eliminated the lag. It's an essential app for a jailbroken phone. The only thing that will cause lag is an excessive amount of pointless apps.

    If you want to modify anything on your phone without SSH, yes.
