    Hi, I just downloaded the latest dev programs from Apple's website (Xcode, Dashcode, iPhone Simulator, etc.) and I love the iPhone Simulator. I grabbed Cydia from my JBd iPod touch (4.0) and loaded Cydia into the simulator. However, when it opens, it crashes. I think this is because I have 4.0 on my iPod and the sim has 4.1. Is there a way to get Cydia on it and working? Or does someone have JBd 4.1 with Cydia that they can send me so that I can test it? Thanks!

    I might have a copy somewhere. I'll try to find it. The problem is, it will still crash. Cydia is compiled for ARM and the iPhone Simulator is compiled for Intel.

    That's correct, you would need an Emulator to run Cydia not on the Simulator.

    Are these tools free? I always wanted since I got Macbook Pro (2 weeks ago) to see iPhone screen on my computer. I think xCode does that?

    That won't allow you to see "your" phone screen on your computer. It is a Software Simulator of "an iPhone" that you can install, run and "simulate" application on the screen.

    Yes - you just need to register at developer.apple.com: The free account will give you access to all the dev tools (including the iPhone / iPad simulator). It won't, however, give you access to any Beta releases or allow you to create apps to install on an actual device
