Thread: Installer Like App for Windows
05-05-2008, 02:00 AM #1Installer Like App for Windows
Im looking for an app which could run on Windows and have the same functionality like Installer...in the sense... one could add sources and then install the app's to the phone via the comp.
I think this app would be really helpful for people(like me) who dont have access to a WiFi network.

ibuilder its just like installer and its for windows u just add sources in it and the packages comes up double click on them to download but u have to afterword pwn the phone to get these packages preinstalled on the phone

Something like this which could just let me install a single app ...but all of em

i have iBrickr already... but is there a way to add repo's to it?

No, iBrickr only supports the PXL repository.
The problem is that it is not possible to install software that will run on a jailbroken phone from Windows. iBrickr used a service running on the phone to do the actual install (borrowed some from Installer.app, actually).
So, since you have to get the installer service on the phone, might as well install from the phone. Unless you don't have WiFi most of the time.
Maybe I could figure out a way to fool Installer.app into installing from a local (on-phone) repository that I put packages into from Windows?

So basically we just need to replace the the "DOWNLOADING THRU WIFI" part with "DOWNLOADING THRU NORMAL INTERNET"..once the download is done....installer can proceed
GET MY POINT?

using the afc2 (USB) service. It would be possible using SSH, but we're back to WiFi required.
