Thread: Installer, restarting?

  1. #1
    Default Installer, restarting?
    So I am having some troubles with Installer.App

    First, after refresh it was always coming up saying there was a newer version, but couldnt download it.. annoying but it still worked.

    Now.. i start Installer, and it just sits there for about 10 seconds, and then goes back to the home screen. I figured something got corrupted in the Inataller.App, so I openned WinSCP and deleted Installer, then installed an older version thinking it would start up, and then update to the newest one..
    nope.. it does the same thing.. sits for a bit then restarts to the springboard..

    any ideas?

    Mine was doing this a few days ago. Pretty sure I have the newest version, but it was doing the whole drop back to springboard thing. I just powered off the phone for a bit and restarted. Works fine now.

    Try deleting the ~/Library/Installer/Remote Packages.plist
    (for those who don't know, the ~ means the home folder, so /var/mobile (1.1.3, 1.1.4) or /var/root (1.0.0, 1.0.1, 1.0.2, 1.1.1, 1.1.2)
