    What are some Good Cydia Repos that are not part of the standard Cydia install?

    You can remove it if you want as ultrasn0w will most likely never be updated again (seeing nothing has happened in over 2 years)

    Thanks, I'm not looking to pirate. I'm just looking for repositories that contain additional apps.

    It doesn't have a lot of stuff but the tweaks that are in there are really good.

    Rather a curt reply !

    Many of us have other sources in order to use beta tweaks and themes.

    Obviously.... Someone posted a screenshot of their sources and 5/6 were from piracy repos. The post has since been deleted as it is against forum rules.

    I have other repos too, but most are for beta software for paid applications.

    Most people are under the impression that most other repos are for pirating, they are not.

    Sinfuliphonerepo, insanelyi, etc, are in fact piracy repos that were displayed in the picture that has since been removed.

    Nor should you have to explain yourself. Your iPhone your business.

    It's a common trait for some members to start finger wagging when this subject is broached.

    Rules of the forum for piracy repo sharing etc do come into effect.

    But like it or not it is a part of the jail-breaking world.

    One of the common discussions is that if the dev's of the tweaks allowed a trial period to check the tweak out to ensure no compatibility issues ,and that the tweak is truly useful before paying out the cash then it would negate the use of such repo's.

    Until then some will use these repos to initially download the cracked tweak to try it out ,and then delete it and re download the paid version if it ticks their wants & needs boxes !

    Because people like ECUpirate44 are ignorant.

    You know, concerning this overall conversation, it is a little irritating to think that in a forum where we should be sharing information openly And freely, people are so quick to jump on and discredit what others have to say.

    No matter what age, I guess that some people always want to play the role of the hall monitor.

    We are all adults, at least most of us probably are, and it is irritating to have the information filtered through to us. If you don't like the content that you see posted on these boards, or in this forum, just disregard it and move on.

    I'm more than aware that there are piracy repos on Cydia. I am also aware that it is against forum rules and flat out wrong. Ignorant about what?

    Not everyone pirates tweaks. Some Cydia repos contain cool hard-to-find themes.

    More than aware of that. In fact, I use them as well :rolleyes:

    What you all seem to be missing is that my comments were directed towards a user demonstrating the use of piracy repos. Not sure how by that token "I'm ignorant" assuming any repo other than big boss is linked to piracy.

    Wow, I enter the thread hoping to find some useful repos to add and instead get nothing of the sort. Someone please change the title of the thread to "off-topic discourse on rules of forum use and brow-beating of other jailbreakers for what they may or may not be doing".

    You kjnow how it goes. It's okay to do what Apple doesnt want you to do to the device illegally.. but you better not illegally download tweaks that your service provider don't want you to do to your phone (hotspot, etc)


    Funny folks on here..
