AppStore app install works, just installed a free game.
Cydia app install works, installed GRis.
I don't even want to touch Installer now.Jimmie Geddes, Editor

Okay, I've been rebooting after each new app install. Appstore and Cydia works, mobilewatchdog seems to be behaving well for each of these.
Have not tried Installer, and probably won't bother as it'll likely break it again and theres nothing I really want on Installer anyway!
Hopefully it'll be fixed promptly as its a pretty big issue. I do like Installer's UI design compared to Cydia, theres nothing wrong with being "too professional" imo. Perhaps we will see much more Installer apps soon now that they are taking on the extra work!

Anyway to re-install Installer, after deleting it?
09-25-2008, 08:56 PM #26
Saurik, (Jay Freeman) saved me on my update with Installer - it booted me into safe mode and allowed me to get back in! Oh, why do I even bother when I haven't used Installer on 2.0.x after I uninstalled Kate? I PAID for that app and it was good on 1.1.4 BUT it is only trouble on 2.0.x. THANK YOU Saurik - and PLEASE, delete your modified hosts file and replace it with the original! (Some of you know what I'm talking about!)

Unlike the rumors of Steve Jobs death that were greatly exaggerated, the rumors of Installers death can not come quick enough.

I got the same thing on my Iphone..
How do you clear that thing
I restarted my phone and uninstalled all my sources thinking that would do the trick

Same here - I'm going to SSh in now and just forget about Installer! (Could this be Jay taking over the iPhone jailbreak world by brute force?) When I have better info about Installer, I may give it another try - in the meantime - Thanks, saurik (Jay), for all of your hard work and for your persistence in delivering a BETTER jailbreak option!
99 red balloons can just go by What was that about anyway, "0" balloon on the icon? Oh yeah, I have to check Installer, because there are "0" updates! It does have a way to go before viability with 2.0.x or 2.1 firmware.
Look MA, No Installer!

Im glad im not the only one who had this problem. I didnt know about the about the SSHing to remove the watchdog, I use the renaming applications method. Since getting my phone back to normal, I have used BossPrefs to hide the installer icon, since I dont know exactly how to delete it completely. At least this way I wont accidentally touch it. with the next firmware update and the next Pwnage tool, Ill be making my firmware without installer. Since upgrading to 2.1 this was the 1st time I have had any problem with the phone.So long, and thanks for all the fish

Whoa. i got so scared updating my installer after I heard all this. The loading screen took like 3 and a half minutes to finish and I was about to ssh. >.> Dodged that bullet.

Man Cydia is 100% better then installer is true installer look more better than cydia but when you download from cydia and installer you now the different.

I was looking forward to rejailbreaking my iPhone because of Installer but after reading the post, hmmm maybe not now.
Btw, after installing/uninstalling something from Cydia can you get back to the homescreen straightaway instead of waiting ages, just browsing Cydia??

Apple really are killing the iPhone slowly, but jailbreaking revives it again.
Just distribute all the apps that get rejected through Installer.
Soz Cydia, but your not good enough yet, gives me ALOD 95% off the time.
Um-mm, you are on 2.0.2? AND you use Installer? I feel sorry for you. Cydia works much better - last time I checked Installer, it was still stagnant. Cydia continues to evolve and offer new apps everyday! Are you on a different planet? Cydia has FAR surpassed Installer for 2.0+ iPhone software.
Funny, A.T, I tried to tell you that yesterday! And I'm just a green apple and you are a "more like myphone" poster! Well. I guess you'll just have to get up to speed here. Have fun with Installer as it is now, and let's hope they improve it. In the meantime, saurik has Cydia working quite well. If you are a "more like myphone" poster why haven't you already jail-broken and figured this out yourself? And what does SOZ mean? As in "Soz Cydia" in your previous post... Oh, wait. Soz may refer to:
Soaz, a genre of poetry in Persian and Urdu
Sozh, or Sož River, in Belarus
Saifuddin Soz, cabinet minister in India
Nonsensical internet slang term for "sorry", used by illiterate morons who for some reason substitute a “z” for “rry”, the latter of which would take an entire quarter of a second to type out.
"OMG, soz about that."
Or maybe you meant this: Sod - This word has many uses. My father always used to say "Oh Sod!" or "Sod it!" if something went wrong and he didn't want to swear too badly in front of the children. If someone is a sod or an "old sod" then it means they are a bit of a bastard or an old git. "Sod off" is like saying "piss off" or "get lost" & "sod you" means something like "f*** off". It also means a chunk of lawn of course. You can usually tell the difference!
OK I'm DONE!

I just want to know are the times any quicker on 2.1 before I restore my iPhone and then quickpwn it??
09-26-2008, 03:14 AM #40
yes it is faster than your previous experience. Thanks for understanding my attempt at humor (at least I hope you saw my post as such). The iPhone 2.1 firmware runs quite well with Cydia. I do still wait for the install of new apps to finish - only a few seconds usually, before I begin another task with Cydia, although it is becoming less necessary to do so.
