  • 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 It also removes some useless and outdated sources.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

      That icon is very cool and matches the rest

      Also i had the same dumb problem updating installer... DOESNT RIPDEV FIGURE OUT THESE THINGS BEFORE THEY RELEASE IT!

      I had to kill watchdog.bundle and stuff but its good now
      I only Use Installer for cracked apps and some system things like Unix Subsystem and things

      They made Installer look nice but it actually sucks.
      Cydia has a better UI and way more apps and stable and NO RESPRING :P

      I have to say i only really have Installer on my Springboard because it looks cool and just to say "Hey, I have Installer" :P

      Cydia is way cooler and has tons of awesome apps like WinterBoard, 5 icon dock, QuickGold, Veency, and soon MobileStacks!

      GO CYDIA!

      yeah, I don't really like installer anymore. I only use it occasionally and it's not really dependable anymore...

      i guess not complaining:P, but seriously to use this u must have winterboard, and know how to ssh. Creat a new folder on your computer, then a subfolder calld "Icons", name the icon "Installer" and ten drag into into icons. next drag the whole folder into /libary/themes and apply i tin witerboard.

      Installer has never worked quite right from the start. Always having connection errors. I think it has seen its day. Besides it only got a few things and cydia has a lot and has got it beat hands down. Installer is dying a slow death!

      dude just get a theme if u want the cydia icon to look different. winterboard and a theme will fix that rather then complaining that u dont like the icon. the icon is fine.
