How to fix some mysterious problems.

This is more of a jailbreak development question, and I wasn't exactly sure if I should come here, or go to Stack Exchange, so I'll give this a shot. I have developed an app that I would like to upload to Cydia. In length my question is:

How can I package my IPA to upload onto a Cydia repository? I understand that it needs to be a Debian and I have got all that figured out. However when I unpackage the debian on the device itself, it shows up in my Cydia packages but the application itself does not install to the spring board. I have looked into the tutorials for developing, and I followed Jay Freeman's guide to debian packing. I still seem to be missing something. The app is compatible with iOS 6+ and my device is a jailbroken 4s running iOS 7.0.4.

"The app is compatible with iOS 6+ and my device is a jailbroken 4s running iOS 7.0.4." That might be why right there

I understand, but the app is compatible with iOS 7, so that doesn't make much sense why it wouldn't work. I suppose I could try updating the app in xcode and see if that makes a difference. I really hope it's as simple as that haha!

have you reinstalled mobile substrate after installing it?

I have, but I can double check it since this is a new compilation that I'm trying to unpack.
