Thread: "Cannot install because unknown error occured"

    Default "Cannot install because unknown error occured"
    When I try to install two specific App Store apps, Facebook and Movies, I get an odd error.

    The application "Facebook" was not installed on the iPhone "xxx's iPhone" because an unknown error occurred (0xE800002E)

    When I check the "Poof" app in Bossprefs, I find multiple entries for these two apps:

    How can I get rid of this and install these apps normally? My iPhone's jailbroken, by the way.

    Edit: I just thought of something, would it work if I were to delete all the folders for Facebook/Movies from my /User/Applications folder?

    Edit again: ...Yeah, didn't work.

    Anyone know about this? I can still install other apps with no problem, both app store and cydia.

    Have you tried to uncheck them in itunes & sync to see if they are still there?

    I've tried unchecking and deleting from iTunes, doesn't work. I reeeaally want to avoid a restore.

    could you uninstall bossprefs? then reinstall?

    and if you want the apps, just install directly to the iphone from the mobileappstore...

    restoring isnt that horrible... less than an hour usually, and it gives you a chance to review all the content on your phone.... try to think positive, it will be fun!

    Installing on the iPhone directly doesn't work either, I guess I'll have to do a restore...

    Done a hard reboot yet?

    (Ironically this is the same message in the app store rejection letters. Cannot approve because an unknown error occurred )
