i like it, it has potential, but not perfect, half the stuff i dont even know what it is. very confusing to any normal joes. I would hope 1 day there will be the perfect "installer" but i would like to see the advances in this program. if it could check ever 6 hours for new progrmas, or allow me to select what folders i want to even see, theres so much that installer needs, and this 2. so who ever does them first i go their vote.

I agree with pingwhen; to much stuff for average user... maybe have a developer/programer option and a regular-user-looking-for-themes-and-games mode?

While that's a good idea. (developer/programmer mode option) it would get confusing for the people who would have to decide where each app falls.
A potentially easier solution would be to be able to have a mode where you could choose which repository to look through.
I see Installer going down as "The first application installer for the iPhone, which was eventually replaced by Cydia"

Well, installed it, gave it a shot. Well, something happened: I got it running once, it crashed while refreshing, now I can't get it to load. I tried uninstalling it, but I only have the option to reinstall, so I tried that, no difference. So, anyone know how to fix or manually remove it?
Edit: Sorry, missed the first post, but do you guys think if I deleted it, then reinstalled it it would start up? I won't be able to get to my PC until morning. Also, Cydia is <11MBs in Installer, whats that about?

Yep crashes for me as well. Shame because I really wanted to check it out.

Ok, this is what I've learned thus far:
If you want to remove it you should reinstall "BSD Subsystem" (under the "Uninstall" tab) then either SSH in or navigate to the "Cydia.app" folder and delete it. After doing all this you should respring (reboot). It should be gone now, but if you ever need it again you have to go to "Uninstall" and "reinstall" it.
If you have the same issue as me (it crashes after opening), install "Cydia: Manual Refresh" (located in the same repository as Cydia ["System" section in Installer]). It worked for me.
Now I get to actually use it to see what all the fuss is about.

at one point last night it was stated in the app on the main page that modmyi's source was broken in such a way that it would Keep cydia from opening if you refreshed sources. So that explains the problems. It doesn't say that anymore so I'll assume everything is ok now. I'm still kinda wary though.

That's because it is indeed partly intended for programmers/code writers. Better check the apps with the ones in 'installer' to be on the safe side, lol.

Needs some time before Cydia could be replacement for Installer. Tried to installl PocketGuitar and Pianist through installer. PocketGuitar crash back to SB. Could be a permission problem, but that should Cydia be able to do right. Pianist complains about not finding the sample files. Both these install without a problem with Installer.
Also tried to install MobileTerminal, it works but on the prompt it says "I have no name!" what is that and how do i remove it? Didn't have it with the terminal i had through Installer.

First of all, I love this app. It's way better than installer, and I think it should definitely replace it also.
However, when I installed it I started having problems with installer starting, it would crash on startup 60 percent of the time. But after using Cydia a little more, installer does not work at all, it acts like it is booting up and then drops out.
I'm not saying Cydia caused this but it's weird.

03-11-2008, 05:34 PM #37find at /dev/null ???????
Where is the command find ???
there is no find, ff, xargs nor locate ?
findutils solved my problem.
keep it rocking!

I thought the app limit was due to Apple springboard restrictions not Installer's?

Tried to install Guitarist and the installation worked but not Guitarist. Couldnt find any guitar samples. Same thing with Pianist. Installed with Installer instead and everything worked fine.
One thing that there is not so many soruces for Cydia, but when the installed applications dont work i think i will stick with Installer.

raptorjr : You can stick with Installer but I see no way to remove Cydia. I guess I just leave it on the iphone!?
