11-24-2010, 10:08 AM #1Downloading results in "Size Mismatch"
I've been having problems with MyWi 8.3 on my iPhone 4 running iOS 4.1, so I tried to reinstall through Cydia. When I try to download the app again, an error pops up saying "Size mismatch". The install fails, then I have to reboot springboard.
On a side note, does anyone have any good resources for getting laptops connected to ad-hoc networks? My config for my ad-hoc connection acts as if it doesn't know what a DHCP server is.
Thanks for the help.

Wow, bizarre. I was trying to install it from the add link. Searched for it and installed it from the search and it installed fine. I noticed that they have changelogs for 4.9+, I wonder if I tried to download when they were updating something?
So, downloading problems seem to be cleared up, thanks.

Just looked, and the version I have now is 4.10.1. I bet I tried to download when they were updating.

Would be interesting to see if that's what it is. Still not a fan of tethered jailbreaks. Wish Geohot hadn't preempted chronic's jailbreak. Wouldn't have to deal with this right now. Oh well.

Actually the other exploit that chronic dev was supposed to use (Shatter) is a tethered jailbreak as well so we still would have been at the same point. The only difference being that the the older devices would have been left out in the cold.

Interesting. I remember reading from chronic dev team's twitter stream that it was untethered. But, finding one tweet in thousands is a pain, so I googled it. Around September 10, everyone was saying tethered. On the 14th CDT came out and said they haven't announced it's tethering status. On October 8, Funky Space Monkey reported this article stating that CDT was able to untether it: SHAtter Is No Longer A Tethered Exploit | FSMdotCOM
Anyways, it's all idle speculation now and doesn't matter. Hopefully, the jailbreak for 4.2 will get untethered! Though, I don't know what compelling features there are to upgrade right now.

They were going to use the same Comex exploit to make it untethered that they ended up using with the limra1n exploit. That part was patched in 4.2.1 meaning no more untethered. The same would have happened with the Shatter exploit. The Dev team is working on making it untethered though so hopefully it will be at some point.

Ah, good to know. Untethered is definitely the way it needs to be, so hopefully that won't be long in coming.

FYI: Sizemismatch means u didn't download the entire file (your internet connection isn't so good or the server serving the file has an issue). To ensure it's not the server, add intelliborn.com/beta4 to your Cydia -> Manage -> Sources -> Add list and try downloading MyWi from intelliborn.com.Send iPhone System Log: Via any Intelliborn App -> Click Help / FAQs/ Support -> Scroll to bottom and click on red text at bottom.
