    "nickmc01" Can you explain then why installer for previos FW1x was falling apart, was never maintained, bug reports were ignored, broken promises of open source, system passwords broken and never fixed.

    Why will installer 4 be any diferent?

    I have tinkered with installer 4 but after what developer did with Kate regarding Winterboard I will not be updating it and will not be installing it when I pwn to 2.0,2

    I can see no point in Installer on FW2.0,0 after all Installer can't do anything Cydia can't do, but Cydia can do plenty that installer will never be able to do.

    While the developers have brought out a crap piece of software (installer 4) jay has made Cydia better and better he's also made Winterboard and Cycorder. Go on Saurik show how it should be done.

    Cydia 10 installed 0.

    I just get this Bad URL Errors all the time when I try to update.... Installer sucks

    And whatever you do - DONT INSTALL KATE!!! It messes up your phone real bad. My phone app started crashing - well that's just worthless... So just dont install KATE! It was impossible to uninstall, I had to restore...

    Did you guys try setting the permissions for the installer.app folder? You should set it to 0755; I would say to set it to 0777 but when I've done that before I got a message while opening installer that the permissions weren't set properly. Because of that one thing you might want to do before setting all permissions to 0755 is to go through the folder and see what permissions all files have by default (especially the important, unique-looking files), if they have 0777 make sure you set that file back to 0777 after you set all files in the folder to 0755.

    LOL, I know EXACTLY how you feel! Because of the fact that most people install these installers during the "pwning" process there aren't many other sources for the program other than the pwning programs and the official source (which doesn't help much with installer, I've learned to HATE the outdated, bleak installer sites!). You really have to do some digging and questioning to find them. I love your analogy, btw, I've been in that situation before too!

    And @ Iphonecrazy, I don't think nick develops the app, he's just supporting it, which I do too btw alongside Cydia (it's like PC's and Macs, you can go on forever about which is better but they both really do have their exclusive pros and cons whether they be statistical, aesthetic or sentimental, and you can't go wrong when you gots BOTH! )

    Can someone tell me why this installer update is not showing up in the updated category of my phone, or any other section of the installer for that matter? I dont understand why I am not getting this update. I have the dev team's source, am I missing something here?

    Why? Do you think they will make huge improvements from now until the release date? No. Installer has always had problems, and they don't deserve to have the application running on an iPhone.
