  • 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 It also removes some useless and outdated sources.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

      I'll jailbreak 2.1 tomorrow, Cydia's install times, Installer being beta still and having the ALOD 27 or so times in week kept me from rejailbreaking my iPhone again.

      It's sad, because RipDev's decision to rewrite the software from scratch instead of keeping it's beloved and useful interface caused installer to become essentially obsolete. If they'd released it back when everyone was ******** about hating Cydia, Installer could've had a chance. Now? It's dead, just like Kate. Freeware technologies have more or less made it obsolete.

      Installer needs a better icon so it's similar to Cydia's, iTunes and App Store's icon. ie. the circle in the icon, they all look similar, pretty cool and even more cooler if installer adopts that idea.
      Didn't Nullriver own Installer, didn't they also develop NetShare, why not put Netshare on Installer or Cydia.

      Installer needs more than just a fancier icon...which you can change to any icon you want now.

      Netshare is not necessary anymore now that free apps let you achieve the same goal.

      I've always wanted to use Kate but it never seems to work and I still want to use Installer. Intelliscreen like program would be awesome if Saurik developed one, I heard Intelliscreen is very buggy for now.

      Installer UI + Cydia = best 3rd party installer for iPhone

      Who cares about the UI! Why bog down a perfectly good, working program like Cydia with a fancier or as some put it "prettier" UI? All the matters to me is that I can install cool apps or new features without my iphone wigging out each time.

      I personally like the straightforward UI of Cydia, seriously, do we really need an oversized pretty icon to represent each app or folder? If so, why? Cydia has perfectly good folders, easy to understand sections, has additional info for each app, easy install and uninstall process! So I ask again, do you really want to fix something that isn't broken by making it "prettier" and possibly affecting the speed and stability? Personally, I think it's just that some people are never satisfied and will always find something to pick on or complain about. But hey, that is just my opinion.

      I updated the community sources in installer and got the endless spinning wheel, then after a hard reset, got the endless boot logo. I SSH'd in while iTunes was open and the phone came back on without having to do anything else.

      All this crap has me asking myself, why in the heck did they change installer from what it was on the original iPhone? It used to be awesome....now it's borderline unusable. Just roll it back to it's former self.

      thank you for the help, but are there any other files or directories i need to delete and does this simply remove the icon from my springboard or doesit remove the app and all its settings and files?

      i wouldnt know for sure, but i think it should delete the whole app(including its setting and files. Also if u delete installer i think u might be able to still keep what uve installed from installer

      This already may have been answered but I don't want to fish through all of the posts .... Just SSH into applications, delete Installer and reboot - done!

      I wonder why you have cracked apps to begin with! And why would you post that as an issue? Which "cracked" apps are you running, and, again, why? You will not find any sources on Cydia with cracked apps and I am appalled that Installer ever even had them.....

      Kind of sad to see it die... try as they might I don't even see hardcore fans going back to installer. Kinda sucks since it WAS so good.

      I knew i should have specified this on my original post, i download the cracked cersions of appstore apps in order to test them, for example i almost bought super monkey ball but after testing the cracked app i realized it was pure garbage. ps: apps ive bought after trying their cracked app: crashbandicoot, engimo, and suberball2. is that enough reason to justify wanting cracked app cydia sources.
