Okay, so I'm new to the whole jailbreaking thing (I only JB'd it for the first ever yesterday), so Cydia is a new experience for me too. Whenever I click on a source (or whatever thing I'm interested in potentially installing), I've seen in videos a tab/option that says "More Information" that allows me to preview or get a better understanding of what I'm about to DL, but I don't see that option. Does anybody know how i can see that?

P.S. I'm running iOS 4.0.1 on a 3G.

That information is downloaded on the fly, you need to give it a few seconds to load, same for screenshots and such, it usually show up at the same time as the ads so as soon as you see as giant ad about viagra (just kidding), the more info and screenshot should be available.

Yeah, definitely don't scroll too fast once the screen first comes up; it seems you have to give it time to let the ads load completely before the "More Info" or screenshot links will appear.

However, there are a few things floating around out there that don't seem to offer more info at all. I can't remember the specifics, but I know I came across 3 or 4 of them this morning (out of maybe 15 apps/tweaks I clicked on.)

Thank you both, I knew I needed to wait a bit but I guess I just wasn't waiting long enough. Patience was the answer, haha. ;)
