  • New Installer 4.0b8!

    RipDev has released the Installer 4.0b8 publically! This is the last update since the 4.0b6 which removed quite a few bugs. The reason they mention for the late release being swamped with work.

    This new version switches to libcurl from the stock Foundation URL loading classes, which means more lightweight CPU and memory footprint and, more importantly, resumable file transfers. They also mention that there will be some more bug fixes.

    Another great thing is that they have changed the functioning of the feature page. Now the featured page has featured stuff in it's true sense. I mean to say that now it displays the most popular (number of installations) packages on the featured page. Though there will be a few sponsored package too (for obvious reasons ) but they will be easily distinguishable and will be less in number (<3).

    Another improvement done is that the community sources ae updated to reflect the change in name of ModMyiF0ne (intentionally mispelled) to ModMyi. It also removes some useless and outdated sources.

    Also, now they are willing to host some packages from devs and will do everything (including scripting) themselves for your convenience for free. Just contact them.

    P.S. It's already included in the last Pwnage Tool

      How many people have actually updated to the latest version w/o any problems??

      Might just wait for it to come out of beta and then update.
      Btw none of my winterboard mods seem to work on Installer, stock Apple theme and keyboard

      I got the infamous SWOD as well. I had my ssh running through iPhone Tunnel Suite in anticipation of this and fixed it in seconds.

      Yay for the red 0 badge lmao

      Had anyone figured out how to get rid of the red zero next to the installer icon on Springboard? I know it's supposed to show updates but why does it show zero? This happened to me a while back but it somehow went away on it's own. I must have done something to get the plain installer icon back but I have no idea what.

      Dont know if it has anything to do with the update but as far as I know my installer.app hasnt updated since I jailbroke to 2.1 weeks ago, but for the past few days when I open installer it starts the normal update of packages and freezes and crashes and I cant do anything in installer...it used to do it once and a while and all I had to do is close installer and try again and it would work fine but now I cant even do that. ANYONE HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM OR KNOW HOW TO FIX IT PLEASE HELP!

      Why are people even bothering with installer? As long as there's Cydia, You won't catch me with installer on my phone.
