    I'd like to find out which files were added and/or modified when a particular app is installed through Cydia. Does anyone know of a way to do that? This particular app (MusicInfo) doesn't create a folder in /Applications and I'm not sure where else to look.

    I am not sure if this the type of information you are looking for ( I think you want to see what the actual Deb package is doing it, and for that you need to check with each particular developer) but this is a start.

    Recent actions by Cydia are in

    Only show the last time you were on.

    A full list of installed apps can be found in

    If you want a shorter list, you can start a terminal and type:

    dpkg --get-selections
    If you organize the contents of the folder /var/lib/dpkg/info by "last changed" time, you can see from the .list files when the packages were last upgraded/installed
