    Default Cydia package download location

    Hi,

    I would like to know if anybody knows where Cydia stores downloaded installation packages.

    It must be saved somewhere, because when you try to reinstall a package, it does not download it again.

    I ask because a certain source which I use has gone offline, and I will need that package if I have to restore (the packages is on my phone now).

    Does anybody have any suggestions? Thanks.

    I think the packages are deleted after installation. But if they are still there, they might be in /var/cache/apt/archives.

    Installing Cydia programs on a phone that has no internet connection: read this.

    Editing binary .plist, .strings, .nib and .xib files:
    * on your computer: Windows tool / conversion website.
    * on your iPhone: convert those files in a terminal with plutil (installed with Erica Utilities) or edit them with iFile (Cydia links).

    Yes, because they are normally deleted after installation

    Either use the command-line (as root, type apt-get -d install packagename and it's downloaded to that same place), or download it directly form one of the repositories -- e.g. Saurik, Modmyi or Bigboss.

    Cool, thank you!
    But what is the difference between darwin and iphoneos files? I suppose latter are for the iPhone, but then I'm curious what darwin files are for

    As far as I know, Darwin is the system on Apple Mac computers running OS X.
