This guide will cover everything from making your own .deb (Debian Package), Adding Repo Info, Bringing it to Life, Updating it and even assigning it a cool domain name like my as shown in the screenshot (not a real website)

1. You'll notice two files from the package you downloaded earlier, dpkg-deb and dpkg-scanpackages
2. Open Terminal and type:
open /usr/bin
3. Copy the dpkg-deb and dpkg-scanpackages file into that directory.
4. Insert password if prompt

1. Open Terminal and type
open /Library/WebServer/Documents
2. In there, create a folder called cydia, then inside cydia, create a folder called deb
3. Now open System Preferences then go to Sharing, Enable Web Sharing. You should receive an IP, make a note of this.
4. Done.

Step 2 - Adding files to Your REPO
