Exactly the same problem. Anyone found a soultion yet ?

I just upgraded to 1.1.1 and used ijailbreak. I then updated "installer" (though itself) on my phone. While installing I received an error that I regret not writing down, but it seemed to work after I restarted my phone. So far it works great except for I have no icons showing on the bottom of the program (Featured, Install, Update, Uninstall, & Sources). It says the titles but no pictures. I read the forum and havent seen anything about this error. It crashes the program when I try to reinstall. Any suggestions?

I've got the same issue.
Says version 3.0b4 installed but its the original version and no option to update.
Any fixes yet?

I think I have solved how to fix it folks. (for those having the same problem I am...see my initial post on it a page or two back).
Here is what I did:
1. I connected my iPhone to my Macbook.
2. Start Fugu and go to your /var/root/Library/Installer directory.
3. Copy LocalPackages.plist to you Mac desktop.
4. Using Textedit, change the "3.0" that you first come across to a "2.63" then scroll further down and change the "3.0b4" that you find (there is only one of each of these) to "2.63" as well.
5. Save the file making sure to keep the .plist extension and copy it back to the same directory you took it from. Be sure to allow it to overwrite the file already on the iPhone.
6. Restart your iPhone and click on Installer. If it does not update automatically, press Reload. You should then see updates for both Installer to 3.0 and for Community Sources.
Note: After doing these updates on my iPhone, I started Installer again and it got stuck open and would not close back to the Springboard. I did a restart of the iPhone one more time and now it opens and closes just fine.
Hope this method works for the rest of you having the same problem!

Sorry, can't seem to find any 3.0 in that file.
Is there a way to send me the correct file?
10-25-2007, 12:17 AM #111
Can't seem to find Community Sources. Please help!
There is also nothing under update.
I've tried several times to reinstall the installer to see if that would help, but still nothing.
What could be causing this?
AppTap to install it. I'm on a MAC.

Another of installing Installer is by using independence, the procedure is the same as the anySim. Note that you can get the installer inside the virginize foder. Install it normally than you can update it to get installer 3.0. If no update go to uninstall the touch the reinstall botton on the top right side.

remember not to accidentally drop it into another application.

Just wanted to say, this was a PITA, but I got it working thanks to the posts in this forum. Referring to a functional Installer.app 3.0 installation.

BTW, after it updated it added the proper "location" entry:

10-26-2007, 11:55 AM #118Updated installer.app to 3.0 - doesn't work
I used the Carlos method to unlock a 1.0.2. i updated my installer.app to 3.0 from 2.63 (via wi-fi).
Now everytime i try to open it it just goes back to the homescreen.
Is there anyway to rectify this? If not please suggest a way to manually remove installer (tried iBricker - doesn't show up in that).
Also, is it safe to use Itunes 7.4.3 (currently use 188.8.131.52) with an unlocked 1.0.2?
