If anybody really needs to know the precise process that the jailbreak update works then they can review the update itself and read the forum posts. It isn't complicated and should be easily understandable to anybody who has reasonable experience with *NIX. Questions are always welcomed here assuming you've put some amount of effort into trying to understand it yourself. No spoonfeeding :P
Once you've installed the jailbreak then you can install any other package you want. No need to reinvent the wheel by making your own variant of the same jailbreak.
