    Default Cydia alternative

    If like me you're finding Cydia increasingly flakey and clunky with constant "reloading data" messages et. try "Icy installer" I just got it and it's quick (very) and uncomplicated, I even unistalled a couple of things installed by Cydia.

    How to Install Icy on your Jailbroken iPhone
    1. Launch Cydia. Go to Manage–>Sources–>Edit–>Add
    2. Enter the following: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] …hit Add Source afterwards.
    3. Go to Sections–>Packaging–>select Icy, and install it.

    4. After the install, respring and launch Icy.
    Upon launching Icy, you should see a very simple layout. Categories, Sources, and Installed are your choices along the bottom (and Search in the top right corner). Go ahead and select any app to install it. You’ll soon be amazed at how well Icy [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] at installing a program. Try uninstalling an app and it’s equally as easy.
    You can also view Icy in landscape mode. What makes Icy so quick is that sources are only refreshed when you want them to be. The app takes up minimal resources and downloads repos very quickly.

    Icy is an awesome alternative to Cydia when you need to install/remove apps quickly and painlessly without constantly waiting for sources to refresh. Definitely give it a try and let me know what you think of it!

    Tried it and very impressed, I like the look of it especially the way it downloads and installs apps.
    Ive only had my Iphone 3G for a few days and have jailbroken it, whether im using Icy or Cydia I have noticed the apps are not fixed, for eg. I downloaded Swirly MMS from Icy but it still is asking for me to pay for a licence. I got Face melter from Cydia and again it comes up with a message that I am using a pirated version.
    Whats the point of Cydia or Icy if you still have to pay for the apps?

    Thanks

    Some are free, some are paid but won't usually be available on the App Store. If you look around there are sources for fixed apps online.
