  • 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 It also removes some useless and outdated sources.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

      Cydia Rules! Although I wish Installer would be as good as Cydia so everyone would be happy. But atm, It's just not up to speed.

      There is no reason to have two repository managers for the iPhone. I could see if there were multiple OS's on the phones, but that is not the case. Ripdev should really put their time towards something more beneficial for the community.

      Cydia is where it is at. On my next Pwn Installer will removed.

      This thread is very comical... someone should dig through the history and find all the "Installer Rules! Cydia sucks!" threads... or "OMG I have to use Cydia now?? Where's installer!!?" threads. It's almost like I'm following the election, lol.

      Thanks RipDev for updating installer and giving me the spinning wheel of death. Now after I have restored (not being able to SSH or knowing of the phoneBrowser method) I'm now going to have to reinstall all my cydia apps, load all my music on again and configure my phone how I like it. Only 2 days after I'd done all that after going to the latest firmware

      Cheers! Consider the end to my already diminshed use of installer

If you are a "more like myphone" poster why haven't you already jail-broken and figured this out yourself? And what does SOZ mean? As in "Soz Cydia" in your previous post... Oh, wait. Soz may refer to:
      Dude, post count means nothing.

      I installed the latest version, no problems. There just seems to be nothing on installer like there used to. That is why cydia is better, however, I think if installer had all those apps people would use it.

      I played around with it a bit and found that I had to link more repositories to it. It had a couple of things that I liked, but I prefer Cydia which seems to have a dev that doesn't mind putting forth the effort to make it better and better.

      I found that when I install anything with installer I get the SWOD.
      If you then open itunes and then plug your iphone in and then leave it alone, it will after 5-10 mins reboot. There is no need to restore.
