Thread: AppTapp (Installer) 3.0 (beta?) on 1.1.1?

  1. #1
    Default AppTapp (Installer) 3.0 (beta?) on 1.1.1?
    Does anyone here have the latest AppTapp or Installer 3.0 beta I believe running on firmware 1.1.1?

    I can't get my 2.64 to upgrade. On my 2.0.2 firmware phone the Installer upgraded itself, but my 1.1.1 phone is stuck with the old AppTap/Installer.

    If you did get the newer version running on 1.1.1, how did you get it on there?

    Thanks so much!

    My 2.x version of installer (not sure exactly what it used to be) updated itself to 3.0 on my 1.1.1 iPhone.

    When I did the FW 1.1.1 upgrade, it gave me the old version of apptapp, and when i signed on apptapp for the first time, it was in the updates section, so I updated and it seems to working just fine.

    How did you install apptapp?

    if you can delete it, do it, install the old version of apptapp and upgrade if its an option for you...

    Have you tried to uninstall the Commmunity Sources and re-install them?
    that seems to work for most. I just made a backup of my old installier from 1.0.2

    You can run your old apptapp first from your iphone and then go to update section and it will show a update for this. Just install it and then you are updated with the new version. I did in my 1.0.2 iphone but they said it is recommended for 1.1.1

    This new apptapp run little slow when refreshing

    My phone was running 2.0.2, I updated the firmware, and AppTapp no longer showed... so I installed it again using iNdependence by downloading the application from their website and just dragging the installer.app into the customize/user/applications in iNdependence.

    Just uninstalled community services then reinstalled.. but still no update. Argghh. Why don't they just make version 3 available for download so that I can install it that way!

    I don't know what to do! Argggh!

    How ARE you supposed to install AppTap once you are running 1.1.1?

    I can't just install it with the AppTap installer selecting 1.0.2? I did it with iNdependence. But can someone give me the proper instructions?

    Thanks

    in /var/root/Library/Installer there is a packages.plist file, open and find installer version, change it to anything older than 3.0. Then open Installer it will upgrade.

    Chazzzzy, AppTap is not installer and installer is not AppTap. AppTap only loads it on there. Kind of like saying you are usingt DVD Photoshop because that's what you used to install it on your computer.

    Also, you were running FW 1.0.2.

    I was having the same issue but found a fix for it. This is what I did:

    1) Upgraded to 1.1.1
    2) Installed SSH
    3) Copied Installer.app into /Applications on the phone

    At this point, I had Installer 2.64, but most stuff didn't work. I couldn't update Installer to 3.0 either. I finally found a directory /var/root/Library/Installer that contained a bunch of info about previously installed packages. I deleted that directory then restarted SpringBoard. Only then did Installer 3.0 show up, and now all is well.

    Hope that helps.

    I'm having the same problem too I think.

    In the "About" section my Installer shows version 2.68, but there's nothing in the "Update" tab. Installer is in the "Uninstall" tab, and it shows it as 3.0 but reinstalling it doesn't work because it says "Package location not found." I think this might have happened because I installed Installer.app 3.0 after I downgraded my 1.1.1 phone to 1.0.2, and some info must have been left over.

    So it looks like the solution is to either:
    - Delete the /var/root/Library/Installer directory
    or
    - Edit the Installer version in /var/root/Library/Installer/packages.plist

    Sounds like deleting the directory would be easier, but how would you edit that file? There's no vi or emacs on the iPhone right? Would you transfer the file over via scp, edit, and scp back to the phone?

    Eureka! I have solved it! I was having the same problem with Installer saying that 3.0 was installed even though it was only 2.63. Trying to reinstall Installer gave me the same "Package location not found" error that Dig1ts mentioned. I then used Fugu to pull off a copy of the iPhone's "LocalPackages.plist" file onto my Macbook and edited any instance of 3.0 (I believe there were two) to 2.63. Just changed the numbers. I saved the file and put it back into the /var/root/Library/Installer directory. Then I restarted my iPhone and clicked on Installer and it asked right away if I wanted to update to Installer 3.0 along with a newer Community Sources.

    thetman, try using my fix a few posts up for upgrading to 3.0 and see if that fixes your Installer.

    Sorted - nice work. That looks like its working for me

    sorry , forgot to mention, i read the post about deleting the /var/root/Library/Installer folder, which did not fix the problem, once leopard finishes installing ill try re adding all the files and using your method

    Default Thanks!!!
    Thanks everybody, deleting that directory fixed my problem... I suspected that it would, but it was comforting to see it in writing.
