i like Cydias better in every way of course, faster, easier to search, easier to update, easier to browse apps u want to install :P
one day it will be installable without installer i guess (in an easy way, maybe its easy now, but i didnt bother to search cause i had installer on my iphone anyways).
But, it is a FACT that i cant install iphisics cause it ask for ither BSD or Cydia, and i have (or had) both, there is NO fake bsd package available (cause i had BDS, so installer still thinks bsd is there).
I think that the problem must be with iphisics newer version, cause all other apps work fine or are installable tho :P

So any suggestions/gotcha's on uninstalling cydia ? can I just rm -f it ?
since it monkied with things what do I have to put back ?I don't drink kool-Aid, I don't join cults.
This is why I break out in cold sweat going to Apple retail store.
03-04-2008, 05:11 PM #125Is there a CRON function?...
Not sure if this is a Cydia/Teleshoreo issue or not...
I restored to 1.1.4 & installed Cydia/Telesphoreo/Fake BSD directly so have never had BSD Subsystem.
Now trying to get an app called Pericam to work, which automatically takes pictures at regular intervals. The developer has indicated that the app is not yet compatible with 1.1.3/4 but others have got it working via the method described in the Pericam topic.
For some reason this method doesn't work for me as the app seems to be expecting a crontab file which is not there (see this post on the Pericam topic for more details about my specific problem).
A suggestion there, is that the following two paths/files should exist but they don't on my system...

To me I dont think Cydia is worth it if it doesnt seem to work reliably for any amount of time. And you cant uninstall it!!

I reinstalled Cydia but it still crashes when opened.
Any suggestions on how to get out of this?

I dont think I have any other choice but to restore for the second time due to Cydia and stay AS FAR AWAY as I can from this unstable application.
Installer has worked fine for me from 1.0.2 all the way to 1.1.4 so why change? Especially when things are so unstable right now. I think I will wait until Cydia is tried and true, because right now it isnt.

I found a downloadable zip of BSD Subsystem and noticed that all of the following existed in BSD but not in my clean Cydia install...
As an added bonus, Showtime finally started saving videos!
Perhaps this can be included in an update to Cydia?...

is this cydia for programmers or something? i see that everyone loves this program but i dont think its for the layperson. i have no idea what 90% of these apps are! :P
i like installer. rarely any problems. very straightforward

I was wondering if Cydia will give us the chance to finally have a fully featured SKYPE running on our toys ....
03-08-2008, 11:04 PM #136Cydia Problem
I had cydia installed working properly when today out of the blue I launch it and it kicks me right back to the springboard. I of course, assume this to be a permissions problem and set my permissions to 777 on the necessary files, so I decided to uninstall using
apt-get uninstall cydia
and then I try to reinstall and I get this error
Couldn't register with bootstrap server unknown error code (0x44f); failing...
383: ABORT: Unable to register "UnknownPurpleApp" port, 1103 unknown error code
I tried using installer and I get Main Script Execution Failed
EDIT: After uninstalling with that code the icon was still there so I pressed it... now it runs again... so odd but Im glad it works

I love this app! I actually install right after unlocking my newly restored iPhone instead of the BSD Subsystem. I am still using installer as well so I kinda have the best of both worlds.pngster

I just want to point out that I also had the repetitive "Main script execution failed" error when installing things via Installer after trying to use Cydia without installing BSD Subsystem first.
It doesn't work, guys. Everyone should be aware of this. Some kind of permissions-related thing happens when you install BSD Subsystem that Cydia doesn't do. So, while Cydia is awesome and all, you should really install BSD Subsystem and then Cydia ON TOP of that.
Why do I know that something permissions related happens? I launched Installer from the command line from ssh logged in as root and all of my Main script execution errors went away. When I logged in as mobile, I got errors about how the script couldn't write to directories. Caveat emptor.
