    Yo guys. I followed this guide to letter (great job by the way). I am having trouble installing my package. I can see it in Cydia but when I press install and confirm I get a http 404 error. I have compared my Package file to one from saurik's repo and as far as I can see it's all correct can anyone suggest what I should check next?

    The source is apt.finalbillybong.com/

    I have tried to make a cydia source with my iPod. I have succesfully made deb packages and a source, but I always get a Hash Sum mismatch. I have have placed the hash in the Packages file, yet it still says there is a mismatch. What am I doing wrong?

    Anyone figure out how to add a USERNAME and PASSWORD to your repo? So that when users add your repo they need a username and password. Similar to logging in via FTP etc.
    Yeah anyone know how to do this?

    Hi !
    I followed the guide but i am having problems too.
    In cydia when finishing adding the repo a mesaage popups:
    Error: Database
    Encountered a section with no Package: header

    Mind that i did not succesfully create the deb file because it gave me the following error:
    [sth was here]EOF during value of field 'website' missing final newline
    that was affiliated with the control file.{Do you know a softaware that creates deb files?}

    So i compressed MyProgram-->MyProgram.zip-->(Renamed .zip to .deb)-->MyProgram.deb .

    UPDATE:So I Found "Cydia Package Maker" but it gives me the following error:
    "Can't get window 1 of application "Terminal"."

    Please can you help here?

    UPDATE 2: So Im ok now but cydia gives me an error:"Hash sum mismatch".

    What you do is read what it says...

    You probably edited the control file with some editor which fails to understand that UN*X text files always end with a terminating newline.
    Some editors from the MS-DOS era and a few braindead others still do not comprehend this.

    So, either forcefully add a newline at the end of the file, or use a "proper" editor.
