Have a jailbroken iPod Touch/iPhone/iPad and ever wanted to make your own Cydia Repository just for your home network? I'll show you how today.



Things Needed
- MacBook w/ AirPort
- Jailbroken iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch with Cydia
- DPKG Comands from FINK (HERE)
- Ability to read CAREFULLY and Knowledge with Terminal


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 infinitymedia.com as shown in the screenshot (not a real website)




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

Web-Server
1. Open Terminal and type
Code:
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 1 - Creating Packages





Step 2 - Adding files to Your REPO




Step 3 - Adding your Repo!




You can also check out dyndns.com and research on getting a static IP to share the the domain name all over the world. Of course, if your Laws/ISP/Bandwidth doesn't have a problem with it.
