Got tired of trying to teach people on how to add DEB files using Mobile terminal so I made this video for the people that didn't know it was easier or even possible to just use iFile to do all the work for you

If you don't know how to SSH, download winSCP on your pc and openSSH on your iPhone.
1. Install and run winSCP.
2. Make sure openSSH is ON on your iPhone (if you have SB Settings, make sure SSH toggle is ON).
3. Click NEW session on winSCP.
4. Host name is the WiFI IP address listed on your iPhone. The IP address is listed when you open SB settings on the bottom half. Note that the IP address needed is something like 22.214.171.124 and not the 00:43:11:E9:92:2D format.
5. User name is "root" by default.
6. Password is "alpine" by default.
7. Click SAVE and click LOGIN.
Now find /var/mobile and follow the instructions above. You might want to change default root and mobile passwords "alpine" for security reasons. You can do that with mobile terminal or simply by using winSCP.

i follow the same steps, when i download a deb file from my iphone from this very same site, it says install using ifile i click that nothing happens, go in to iFile and still cant locate the file, whats wrong here?
Dled ifile with the keygen and tried to run the keygen using iFile, didn't appear the option to install keygen. Instead, gotten many options: open with pdf, web, notes, media...etc. Any idea why? How to deal with this?
If I download the .deb (say from here) through my phone (not via pc) and use file to move the .deb to /private/var/mobile
Then Click on Installer option, shouldn't that work? I'm trying it with auto3g and I don't think it's working. The goal is not not use the pc at all.
Is it a problem if I do not have a "Downloads" folder in /var/mobile/library with iFile? Instead the download went to a /var/mobile/Documents folder. Is that a problem? I tried to download something and it didnt work, I was just trying to figure out if its a deb file issue or if I'm an idiot. Thx
Correct is what you said about the changed password.
But with ios 4 there are some permission problems.Ifile is actually not abble due to the superuser privileges that are needed to install debs even if you gave the 0755 permissions to the file .That is Ios 4.2.1 related ifile needs to be updated .
Easiest way is to ssh the deb to cydias autoinstall folder . Reboot -- Done .
i'm going to speak my language and after I translate it cause when I'm happy like that to feel very goo i've to speak home language sorry every one

Can't find the sinful safari download manager in search after adding sinfuliphonerepo.com to sources ?
Just double checked, and it is there and I was able to find it via a search.
Have you tried looking within the Sinful source itself instead of searching?
In Cydia, go to manage--->Sources---> Sinful iPhone Repo and then scroll through the packages till you get to Safari Download Manager.
