Please enjoy this hugs98 package for the iPhone installable at cydia and installer, it is included by default in the comunity sources, so you’ll only have to refresh your sources and it will be there, in the development section.

Just install com.wordpress.argaldo.hugs98 (hugs98) and/or com.wordpress.argaldo.hugs98-packages (hugs98-packages) if you want full hugs libraries ( as included in hugs98 source distribution ).

Then, open the console application and run ‘hugs’.
