    The first point to this thread is how does a person find new Source's to add to Cydia?
    Ive seen them called both source's and repo's, I realise the more you have then the more scope for apps appearing in the Cydia search lists.
    Can we use this thread for adding too as we find them. Or is that pointless?

    For those who don't know how to add source...

    To add a repo/source, go to Cydia, click on Sources at bottom of screen, then click on edit top right of screen and then click on add which is top left of screen.....this will open the http screen, add the web address you are given and press add source, then press done to the top right of screen......and that should now increase your search list.

    Also when you add a source, click on it and a list appears of the objects within that item.

    One I was told to add that gave me some good stuff was.....

    http://mirrors.xbmc.org/apt/ios

    This gave me the multimedia centre I use for watching all my movies wirelessly from my P.C.

    Remember I am a noob and if any of this is wrong please feel free to edit and change. Also, please remember that this site operates a no piracy rule....any sites that the moderators deem to promote piracy will be deleted and the person who added it will be warned.

    Thanks for your time and enjoy this whole new world that has been opened up to us!!

    I added XBMC to my jailbroken iPad last week, and my life has been that much better!

    Sent from Jailbroken my iPad Deux (32gb WiFi iOS4.3).. d(-_-)b

    It certainly is a great application, and performs well wirelessly

    How bout a little description also of why the repo(or repo's others might add to this thread) might be so worthy to add.

    XBMC in my opinion is the best way to view videos, photo's and listen to music wirelessly from your computer onto your iPad!!

    [​IMG]

    I use a D-link, which is a wireless hard drive system, it is loaded with 2 x 2GB drives, one I use for music and one I use for videos. Rather than having DVD boxes and CD cases scattered around the house, I rip everything onto my drives, I then use my iPad or my apple TV, both which are loaded with XBMC, to view or listen to them.

    [​IMG]

    I can also set the local weather on it to check out weather to go for a walk or just settle back and load another album up!!

    [​IMG]

    I hope this helps, and remember, as it's a free app, you could always delete it if your not totally happy with it......but I'm sure that won't be the case.

    Sorry about the photos being side on.....forgot to rotate them!!

    Well after an hour of searching every file that I could find, I think the answer I have to give you is NO!! Sorry.

    I will try moving a movie into a different file and see how that goes?
