Thread: Installer App Crashes...

    Exclamation Installer App Crashes...
    Ok, for the past day or two I have been adding sources.. lots of them. Anyway, today started my Installer and it just froze for like 20 sec and reverted back to my springboard. So then I found out that deleting my remotepackages.plist in my var/root/Library/Installer, was a solution, and I tried it. And it worked, I guess... But once I opened Installer, it refreshed my sources and the remotepackages file was remade and back in the Installer folder. So in order to access my installer I needed to delete my remotepackages and refresh... everytime, which took too long. So I set out to find the source that was creating this plist, and I deleted some that I thought were source of the issue. After doing so, I tried to open Installer and it was doing the "20 Sec freezing" thing again, and I checked my var/root/Library/Installer and the remotepackages.plist was gone! So now I can't open installer and am stuck.....

    *Please note I can access SSH and do have Cydia installed, if either of those are needed to solve this problem.

    I know restoring and re-jailbreaking is possible, but I really don't want to... I have like 100+ applications installed and a lot of custom changes that I personally made and redoing them isn't something I really want to do.

    Thank you so much for the help, and I hope someone can find a remedy for my issue. Thanks!
