  • Installer.app 3.0!
    Posted by Ste.
    “LG”, of Nullriver Software, just told me that he hopes to release Installer.app 3.0 shortly, perhaps as early as today. He just has one last piece to complete first. He says “The new installer is just so much better. [There’s] really no point keeping people on the old one anymore.”

    I have been testing the new version for a while now. New features include, but aren’t limited to:

    -Redesigned UI
    -Collapsed groups on the Install page
    -“Recents” category on the Install page, for “Today”, “Yesterday” and “Older”
    -Ability to easily add/remove Sources
    -Abilty to easily install all available updates
    -A “Featured” page that currently is used as an info page
    -“More Info” no longer opens Safari

    This is SO awesome!

    UPDATE: It's out!

      I tried to add a source using http://iphone.exploit.org/pxl/

      it seemd to be accepeted and loading/updating but nothing extra seems to show as available for installing even though there is lots on that site. Have i made an error? perhaps it cant work from this type of site as a source, can anyone advise?

      Is this one safe? The last time I updated my installer it killed my iphone and I had to do a restore at three in the morning. I am a little but weary of the installer at this point. Can all confirm that this install update will not kill my iphone like 3.0b7 did? Thanks!

      Changing the version AND adding the location key and string did the trick for me, thanks all!

      i have an activated AT&T iphone and i have 1.11 version of the phone. I originally had the 1.02 and downloaded the install.app program. i installed a few programs on it and once the icon disappeared i did not know how to access it again to install other programs. so i restored the phone and it downloaded the 1.11 version of itunes and i go to the install.app site and one day it looked like it was trying to download but nothing. I have been afraid to unlock my phone but it looks like this is going to be the only way to get the things i want on my iphone. Please guide me into what i need to do.
      thanks

      i just jailbroke my 1.1.2 and got everythign working, but i don't have BSD subsystems as an option to intall in installer, do i need to add a source or something, thanks.

      I have the same problem.
      I have unlocked over 50 iPhones already and now there seems to be a problem at nullriver.com
      Sources are not refreshing, BSD Subsystem is not available for installation ( its not in the list) and if I visit www.nullriver.com it doesn't load the page.
      Anyone know if they got hacked?
      Does anyone know an alternive source to add to install the BSD Subsystem via installer?
      @ all just try visiting www.nullriver.com (they wrote the BSD Subsystem script for the iPhone) and you will see wot i mean.

      If anyone has an alternative source please let me know.
      Thanx

      Same here, Installer.app is awfully slow lately. Refreshing sources takes forever, dowloading apps too.
      Are there too many people using this? so many iPhone users?

      Could just be bandwidth issues.

      alright I need some advice. I'm running at 1.0.2 fw , iTunes 7.4.0.28 and have installer loaded and use it Summerboard. I also have ringtones installed via the old file extension change workaround in iTunes 7.4.

      Is it safe to upgrade to 3.0b8 if I'm running 1.0.2 I've read Installer 3.0 suggest 1.1.1?
      I can't get into installer anymore because it keeps wanting me to upgrade to 3.0b8

      Is there any way to preview the Themes available via Summerboard?

      Is there a way to delete unwanted Summerboard Themes downloaded via Installer?

      Which guide should I use to upgrade to 1.1.1 if thats necessary? Seems like everyone who upgraded to 1.1.2 is downgrading back to 1.1.1 now

      Many thanks for the help!
