    If the only feature I need from a fresh jailbreak is MyWi what Cydia level of install would I then use?
    I guess I'm sort of just looking for a 'Cydia Lite', so to speak.
    When Cydia asks me to download either the essential updates or simply all of them would only the essential updates allow MyWi to work?

    There is only one type of Cydia install. Just install the updates and MyWi.

    There is no cydia-lite or any of that.
    Its just cydia, JB, do the complete updates and install Mywi.
    That's all.
    Cydia, any of its updates or MyWi will not slow down your iphone.

    Yeah. Cydia won't do any harm at all. If it bothers you that much, find a way to hide the icon.

    I don't want a full jailbreak at all, I just want to enable Personal Wi-Fi Hotspot; that's it.

    My question is if MyWi is worth it at this point. If itether/tetherme (or some other app) come out with a way to just enable the hotspot feature in 4.3, then it seems like the $20 for MyWi is pretty steep. On the other hand, I like the idea of MyWi+ondemand for an instant iPad connection. What are your guys thoughts on the situation? Seems to me a wait-and-see game is in order at least until a JB for windows is out.

    Youre either jailbroken or not. No lite or minimal jailbreak

    I see where Cydia offers though the full update or an essential update.

    In the past the more repos I added my iPhone seemed to not run as fluidly as before.

    I thought perhaps the essential update (offered only when the jailbreak/Cydia install is fresh) would not be as complete as the complete.

    I would suggest you look at TetherMe. Much better than MyWi. Native FTW.

    You're either wet or dry
    You're either dead or alive
    You're either jailbroken or you have a phone homosexuals use.

    More repos only slow down cydia loading not the whole phone.

    Everything I'm reading rings true but I ask myself: Why does Cydia then allow for a choice between updates on a fresh install?

    Why not only offer Complete Update vs Essential?

    Logic would dictate the less I alter my iPhone via a jailbreak probably the better. I believe what I'm reading above, no disrespect involved to those more knowledgeable, now my inquiry is only out of a curiosity.

    If you just install MyWi you'll be fine either updating some, all or none of them. Up to you, don't be so anal about it.
    It's not such a big deal, they are updates for cydia and the way it runs and installs things.

    Years ago there was a way to enable Tethering without jailbreaking; just that hole has been patched. Would love it if there was a way to redo that hack but maybe only while the phone is tethered. I know it's a long shot, but if they could, I'd love it.
