Thread: Installer 3.11 Crashing [FIXED!]

  1. #1
    Default Installer 3.11 Crashing [FIXED!]
    Ok so I have had a lot of problems with my Installer after I updated it to 3.11 not too long ago. After the update, my Installer would keep crashing in about 10 seconds and go back to the Springboard after I would click on the app. I read around and I noticed that it was also happening to a lot of other people also.

    So here is how you fix it:
    1.) SSH into your phone by using WinSCP or something like that.

    2.) Go to var/mobile/Library/Installer

    3.) Rename RemotePackages.plist to RemotePackages.plist.old

    Now open Installer and it should be working now with no problems at all. It worked for me flawlessly and my Installer has been working perfectly ever since.

    The reason I think this fixes the problem is because a file got corrupted in the update and once you rename the RemotePackages.plist to RemotePackages.plist.old it will create a new RemotePackages.plist.

    I have to do this everytime I want to open Installer. Is there a particular reason? I just want to make sure I'm not doing anything wrong.

    yeah every time I open Installer I have to do it over and over again. It is still worth it though

    Wouldn't that be annoying and tedious, I would just restore and jailbreak again. Unless if of course you have the command running before Installer starts

    Why not try installing Cydia, uninstalling installer, then reinstalling Installer through Cydia?

    is there anyway to delete remotepackages.plist completely so i dont have to delete is through winscp all the time because when im out and about i like to look through installer sometimes and it always crashes because of the size of the remotepackages mine is (2,826,521)
