    Default Adding more Installer.app sources
    I see people talking about at least for different sources for the installer, but when I go to sources on my installer I only see Nullriver Software, Conceited Software, & Ste Packaging. I don't see where you can add more sources, so how do I go about doing that.

    you have to add it to the PackageSources.plist

    It is located under var/root/library/installer

    One other quick question How do you pull down the .plist, and then edit it. So far, I've only put files ONTO my iPhone, not pulled them off. Thanks.

    HighThymes, will those 2 apps eventually make it to the Installer's sources and therefore downloadable within the iphone? If not, on a Mac, what are the steps in Terminal to achieve this?

    I hope they add the sources to the app so when people download installer they will have access to these but i dont think they will anytime soon unless they see there is demand from people.

    I am not sure how to add these through terminal but if you guys have away to add files to your iphone, i can upload the PackageSource.plist and then you can drop it into the var/root/Library/Installer folder.

    I use WinSCP and navigate to var/root/Library/Installer then right click on the PackageSource.plist file and click copy and copy it to your pc. Edit it there and then drop and drag the modified file back inro your phone.



    EDIT: Here is PackageSources.plist

    Right Click and Save

    If you download and directly copy the file I have in my sig into the var/root/Library/Installer folder(overriding the current one), then it should work, that is the PackageSource.plist file.

    The actual link where installer is grabbing from is XML because that is the only way I could get Installer to read it. Is it supposed to be a .plist extention? Isn't the .plist really just in XML language?

    Which theme you install? If they are any of mine, then if you can't see a installer button it will be a hidden one in the 4th row all the way to the left. All the themes I uploaded can access Installer and be able to go from theme to theme no problem. I am not sure about all DeathtoDesign's though.


    If it is one of DeathtoDesign's then goto /System/Library/CoreServices/SpringBoard.app

    and open the DisplayOrder.plist and add this to the first section

    <dict>
    <key>displayIdentifier</key>
    <string>com.nullriver.iphone.Installer</string>
    </dict>

    it will at least help you get a installer icon to show up to be able to change to another theme

    I installed transformers, uninstalled and its still there. It gave me a warning AS I WAS INSTALLING telling me I shoulve backed up my current theme. Well woops. If I can atleast get the theme off then I have backups of my icons and stuff on my desktop.

    any help will be appreciated.

    When you save the file to your PC keep the name it has. You don't need to change anything, just drop it in that installer folder.

    Uninstalling doesn't actually take the present theme just installed off, it just puts the theme name back into the install menu and out of the uninstall one so you can download it again.

    At this point you can either install another theme from installer(it will take away the current one and install the new one)

    or

    manually drop all the icons in the apps the way you would normally do it without installer.

    Thats wierd that is has a XML extention. Well then I guess you will have to put the .plist extention at the end of it so it looks like the other in there because you want to replace that.

    Can you open that PackageSource.plist file that is in your iphone right now and see if it has this added to it at the bottom?
