From what I have been reading, users are having issues after they upgrade? Is it safe to upgrade with my iTouch 3G? The complainers may be the minority here, but better safe than sorry!

quote from saurik's twitter "Note: installing Cydia 1.1 removes older default packages. This is normal: repositories are managed differently, and will not be deleted. ;P"

Just use Twitter to follow the main jailbreak crew to get release info. Best source of real intel!

Yes, it should be fine to upgrade on all devices.

Why does it say it wants to remove all of my sources?

bigboss, cydia community, dev-team, modmyi, zodttd...

Good idea to follow Saurik on Twitter, he says exactly that.

Speaking of Cydia problems, here is an interesting one. On "Changes" at the very top of the list is a blank package. If I touch it, it says:


Note: Cannot Locate Package

The package dialog cannot be found in your current sources. I might recommend installing more sources.
