Thread: 1.1.4 BSD SubSystem not installing

  1. #1
    Default 1.1.4 BSD SubSystem not installing

    I have had an iPod touch that I have had since it came out, jailbroke it ages ago. I have recently upgraded to a iPhone 1.1.4 which I done with ZiPhone 2.5

    I have installer icon, but whenever I try to install BSDSubsytem it always fails, this means I cant install OpenSSH and other important apps.

    I have tried to search, but no answers, does anyone else have this problem/

    I would do a restore to 1.1.4 again, and then try a newer version of ziphone. Or you can use iplus to jailbreak as well. The latest version of ziphone can be found at

    Cydia comes pre-packed with BSD Sub System. Just remember to install the Fake BSD System as well

    Are you getting "Download Failed" error message? I am getting this message on every download now, even ones that just worked, and it seems to be a problem (as I viewed on

    Same problem, reinstalled 1.1.4 and same thing happen; used Ziphone 2.5 then 2.6b with no difference, almost all downloads doing this as previously stated.

    Ok; Making some progress with this issue, I went to a different web site to try and get Cydia, while trying to do it I added a new repository to get it and now I can see Cydia under the packages, the interesting thing its that it was doing the same thing as before. I restarted the phone and right away went to installer, one thing that I notice different was that the most popular packages showed the yellow star as the did on my 1.1.1 version, so I went to the system and did the install for BSD subsystem, I was able to start downloading the package; its whoever very slow and has nothing to do with my WiFi since my laptop is flying over the net right now....

    this is the repository I added:


    Also, by adding this repository you will be able to see Cydia, but I was unable to download, at least I got BSD system now...

    i had this problem installer, hold home button until installer closes, reopeninstaller go to sources and refresh, there may be an update for installer you may neeed if not try to install BSD after you did the hold hoe button for 7 seconds but!

    theres been problems with the updated jailbreaks (ziphone and ijailbreak) and the BSD its been causing other problems with the iphone so just a heads up
