Now that you have jailbroken your iOS 6 idevice (or considering to jailbreak) you might be pondering what repos to look out for. For those who do not know what a repo is, first it is short for repository and is called sources. A repository in simple terms is like a store within a store. Think of it as a private seller within eBay. Within Cydia are many repositories that contain the tweaks, themes, widgets and apps. They are the core of why many users jailbreak. So if you are ready to start adding the elements to configure your idevice to your own taste, lets dive in with some of the best repos to look out for.
*Note: We attempted to include repos that do not include or support piracy. If we have posted a repo that does in fact have piracy hacks please let us know. We like to support the devs and encourage everyone to support the devs.
To begin here is how to add sources.
1. Open Cydia
2. From the main screen at the bottom find manage
3. Tap the sources button
4. Tap the edit button located at the top right
5. Then tap add
6. At this point you will need to enter a name that looks like a URL (Cydia/APT URL)
7. Tap add source
