    Have you set your permissions in your server for each package to 777?

    Hello
    I tried this tutorial and is very well made, congratulations
    I have just one little problem with it (I guess I made mistake somewhere )
    when I open main directory of my repository it shows that information correctly
    However, when I try to use Regenerate script/line/command (call it how You like ) I get this line for both "firmware 2.0" and "firmware 2.0.1"
    It says
    Code:
    Warning:  opendir(./packages/data.tar.gz) [http://modmyi.com/function.opendir]: failed to open dir: No error in N:hostedura-netsubaru-reporegenerate.php on line 196
    
    Warning:  opendir(./packages/package.zip) [function.opendir]: failed to open dir: No error in N:hostedura-netsubaru-reporegenerate.php on line 196
    I don't have idea what it can be... I tried repack zip file on two ways and correcting info.plist because I made mistake there but now this file is 100% OK so I guess the problem is somewhere else

    Thank You for advance

    I had the same issues with the new repo code I had to revert back to the old one to get it to work right!

    Now I only wish we had a complete tutorial on creating working packages and how to send then into the iphone correctly I have had 1 hell of a time with this.... I've gotten ringtones and wallpaper into the phone through the repo but thats it so far???

    After setting full control permission to the folders i still have the unable to decode package error

    so now i have a repo on my server but with no use

    i think that the problem might be with the zip file but im not sure of that

    so i placed the sample package as it is to the repo but still having the same problrm

    I cant seem to get the newest repo 4 code working so I am using the First repo 4 source code that was released and so far so good other than duplicate packages apearing

    and i'm going to start agreeing with everyone else SO FAR INSTALLER 4 IS THE WORST PEICE OF JUNK EVER!! I can't even get it to load 3 out of 4 times without it freezing up

    Hiphonepro You are right, lastly I can't browse much on installer because it hangs or makes whole iPhone reboot Until Installer will get out from beta tests and will be stable, we can't count on it much I guess...Let's wait for news about Installer 4 progress for now

    Dear all

    here is my full situation

    I'm hosting the repo on Vista PC
    this is the output after the regenerate:
    -------------------------------------------
    Generating index for firmware 2.0.2.
    Scanning category 'Santana'...
    Category 'Santana' scanned, 3 packages added, 0 packages skipped.

    Pinging search server...
    All done, thank you!
    -------------------------------------------

    all permissions on the info folder are set to full control for everyone

    after inserting the repo URL into the Iphone my category appears on the installer
    now when i click on it it shows me the packages i have but with no icons
    and when i click on any package to get the information it gives me
    "Unable to decode error more info at repo/info......"

    i dont know if i can be more clear than this

    i also tried to change the zipping configuration but still no point

    so i revert everything to how it was


    thanks in advance

    I agree with you 100% this thread is kind of funny because it seems easy to get the repo up and running it's creating the packages and getting them up and going with the installer and iphone that seems to be the issue I WISH SOMEONE WOULD CREATE A DETAILED TUTORIAL ON THIS!!! here is the best I could find and it's old http://ifortner2008.googlepages.com/repository

    UPDATE: I just emailed ifortner in hopes that he can help us and possablily write up a tutorial for us

    UPDATE: I just emailed ifortner in hopes that he can help us and possablily write up a tutorial for us
    Finally i managed to get it to work after getting guidance from a friend of mine

    here is what to do to solve "Unable to decode package" error


    Ok.. Santana.. there is another thing I forgot to mention for the Windows users out there.. It is extremely important to have IIS configured for PLIST files. If the server doesn't have these added, it will not work and will result in the unable to decode error. The best way to check if you have already done this is by browsing to http://yourwebsite.com/Info.plist.

    If it says page not found, eventhough the file is there on the server, then that means you have not setup to allow plist files on the server.

    Here's how you do it:
    1) Open IIS
    2) Right click on the website/folder for your iphone files
    3) Click Properties
    4) Select the HTTP Headers Tab
    5) Click on MIME TYPES
    6) Click on NEW
    7) For the extention add .plist and for the MIME type add application/rss+xml
    8) Save and restart server.

    I'm pretty sure you have to follow this step in order to get your repo working. Seems like everything else worked fine, it's just that if a browser can't see/understand a plist file, neither can Installer. Try it out and let me know what happens.
    after following the instructions my iphone started to get packages information and install Packages

    now i still have a very small problem which is not that important to me though
    i cant seem to get the package icon to show on the iphone ad i'm not sure if this is due to connection or server

    so for this time i'll just enjoy and do some testing with the repo
