Cydia works like its supposed to just because its slow at times dose not mean it sucks it means you need to have a bigger system partition for mods if you need more info on that see how mods are stored on the ios device system mods that need root for obvious reasons will be on the system partition

Cydia is as SLOW AS HELL.

about Cydia and Apple App Store · ·

This is the App Store of jailbroken iPhones (though apps from the App Store still work :P). You can't do without it.

Which is annoying, because Cydia is as SLOW AS HELL. It spends eighty five million years reloading every time you open it- quite annoying.

The reason for its being incredibly slow is that it needs to synchronize the local package list with all the remote APT-GET repositories. A normal installation of APT-GET has about 4 repos enabled at a time. Cydia will sometimes have 20 or more. This is the reason behind the ridiculous refresh time.
