    So you could also use Installer, as long as you only use trusted apps (from trusted repositories), right?

    I think this matter of trojans comes down to the choice of trustworthy developers and repositories, in the end.

    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).

    Repository people could always build (compile) the programs themselves from the source code (after examining the source code, of course.) This also assumes, of course, the repository people aren't using a malicious toolchain, which would have the ability to turn any program into a trojan.

    But practically, making sure of the identity of the submitter, or at least making sure they have left enough of a footprint on the Internet (IP addresses, etc.), is probably good enough.

    That is, assuming that the repository people receive the source code and not the compiled product. A developer who wants to keep the source code private could still submit binaries, or not?
