    So now that we know whats missing is there any way to get the files onto borked phones via irecovery or some such?

    Have some pics on my phone that have not been synced yet and am reluctant to wipe and reinstall just yet.

    Hi everyone.

    This error happened to me too. Basically I saw that Rock had updates and just proceeded to update without checking what was being updated. Long story short, it seems that doing this update/upgrade via Rock deletes some of your bin/sbin files for whatever reason and that then causes the updates/upgrade to fail as outlined in this thread.

    I'm not going to get into a debate about which is better, Rock or Cydia, but rather point out that thanks to chevyderth, I was able to correct the problem and update/upgrade without further errors.

    Thank you so much for this. For anyone else experiencing problems mentioned in this thread, these files are all you need.
    1. Download these zip files and extract them
    2. Connect your iPhone to your computer and open iPhoneBrowser (or whatever allows you to browser/edit/replace files on your iPhone)
    3. In iPhoneBrowser, navigate to the relevant directories on your iPhone and open them - they will open in the right windowpane of iPhoneBrowser - then copy the files you are missing from the relevant extracted zip file to your iPhone by selecting and dragging from your file explorer to the correct directory in iPhoneBrowser
    4. Once all the files are copied to the correct directories on your iPhone, close iPhoneBrowser
    5. On your iPhone, open Cydia app and when it pops up the upgrade options, choose the "upgrade all" option
    6. The upgrade will now work without errors and once complete you'll be good to go


    Edit: If you use Rock, after the update/upgrade in Cydia, Rock will still list that updates are available on the app icon (on your springboard). But once you click the Rock app and open it, it will refresh and realise the updates/upgrades have already been done and all will be back to normal.


    This worked for me on my jb 3G 8gb iPhone (Model: MB489x - Baseband: 05.12.01).

    Thanks again to chevyderth for providing the required files.

    Cheers
    Nef.

    In my case, i've just solved it :
    In Rock, instead of trying updating the Cydia Installer, i chosed "reinstall" option. Now, the version is 1.0.3172-68 and work fine.

    I hope it will help you.
    This worked for me. thats a big help

    how is this a rock problem?

    I am getting the same thing in cydia and havent touched rock. This has been going on for days now , how is this not fixed or removed yet?

    Im kinda pissed at this point. I had to restore my phone yesterday. Had the same thing happen to me with the silver apple logo then instant power off. I restored and then got the error and googled and found my way here.

    So i reinstalled cydia installer from like the post above said. I fear rebooting again due to this god awfulness.

    I tried this solution and finally got all updates on my iPod Touch 2G (3.1.2 / blackra1n) done.

    But i fear rebooting because of the following errors:
    Code:
    Marks-iPod:/sbin root# fstyp_hfs
    -sh: /sbin/fstyp_hfs: Bad CPU type in executable
    Marks-iPod:/sbin root# newfs_hfs
    -sh: /sbin/newfs_hfs: Bad CPU type in executable
    Marks-iPod:/sbin root# mount
    -sh: /sbin/mount: Bad CPU type in executable
    Marks-iPod:/sbin root# fstyp
    -sh: /sbin/fstyp: Bad CPU type in executable
    Marks-iPod:/sbin root# fsck
    -sh: /sbin/fsck: Bad CPU type in executable
    fsck_hfs works for whatever reason.

    There is going to be a giant treatise, complete with log outputs of Rock showing it, step by step, doing the wrong thing with these packages (so bad that dpkg screams out in pain trying to convince the person calling it that they are doing something wrong, not that Rock cares, of course), that is going to be posted here sometime in the next day.

    That said, there could totally be multiple problems: the people who tried the upgrade with Rock are definitely 100% screwed, and that is not the fault of the upgrade. So far there sounds to be a large number of these people. Meanwhile, I've found maybe four people, total, who have experienced this issue and were not using Rock.

    I therefore feel rather confident that we are dealing with two issues. It seems all nice and tidy to think there must be one underlying bug, but that's way too simple, especially when the non-Rock users are in such a tiny minority and we have clear-cut evidence of a Rock bug.

    So, can you tell me: did you ever uninstall the system-cmds or diskdev-cmds package? The former comes with Cydia, and the latter is an Essential package that comes as an upgrade. If you have ever previously removed either of these two packages, you were already screwed, and this new firmware-sbin package is going to fail to install.

    (Which is an important point: firmware-sbin failing to install is just an indicator that you are already screwed. That package itself is not causing any of the issues anyone is experiencing: that is because, somehow, the packages diskdev-cmds and/or system-cmds were uninstalled or upgrade in the wrong order relative to firmare-sbin.)

    pretty sure i never removed any of those.

    when i get home ill restore again. I rebooted to see if it happened again after attempting the bin/sbin/ replacement etc and now it just hangs on the apple logo.

    Ill reload everything and install just cydia again and post back .

    Default Bit peed off...
    Ok so I am one of the unlucky few who managed to download the *broken* updates to Rock/Cydia (not getting into that one...)

    Then by a sheer stroke of bad luck put my phone into recovery mode in order to get my ECID and save it to Umbrella to secure my Blob ID after being warned that Sauriks servers were becoming overwhelmed due to the release of Spirit.

    I am now stuck with a 3GS which was pwned to 3.1.2 with the ver 4 baseband and ultrasn0w unlock which will not boot. Now I know I can just DFU and restore but I have some photos/contacts on their which I have not synced yet (stupid I know but i have just returned from 4 weeks in the US!)

    So the question is - mainly to Saurik - will I ever be able to fix this issue without a restore? Or is their a way to access the files whilst in Recovery mode (I think this was taken away from iBoot??) in order to get my files back before I reluctantly restore my Phone???

    Aaaarrrrrrrgggghhhhhhhhhhh!!!

    Saurik

    I never uninstalled any of these packages - either manually or via a GUI option.

    I did however fall into the Rock trap.

    I think I have fully recovered though from information in this forum

    I was able to fake out the /usr/sbin/nvram file and do a manual apt-get upgrade. I was still missing files in /bin, /sbin and /usr/sbin and just restored those files from zips posted on this thread.

    Are there any tests I can do to see if my phone will reboot normally??

    I can now go to Cydia normally and no updates are found. Would it be wise to re-install (from Cydia) the firmware-sbin package?

    Thanks

    Dan

    aimetti, I presume you did all this after a restore? or were you able to update the files with the phone in recovery mode?

    Still hoping to get my files off an unbootable 3GS at the moment!
