Thread: Installer 4 keeps crashing

  1. #1
    Default Installer 4 keeps crashing
    Ive got the jailbroken 2.0.1 firmware and im running installer 4.

    Yet it keeps jamming up and crashing, any ideas why?

    Because it's a beta, betas always will crash and until it's an official release, don't expect it to be completely stable.

    when cydia was beta it didn't crash. stick with cydia, it has everything installer has plus some.

    I removed installer and don't see myself ever picking it back up after seeing the dev teams willingness to release crap.

    They released it in it's beta stage because of wide public pressure. Installer 4 is not "crap"... it's B-E-T-A! You can expect bugs... crashes... constant updates.. etc. I see a lot less people saying "Cydia sucks.. .where's Installer?"

    don't see any constant updates.... just the bugs and crashing. When cydia was beta i saw constant updates without the bugs and crashing.

    cydia wins.

    looks like cydia is the way to go then.

    Just picking up a 16gig iphone today, so ill definately only use cydia on that.

    Installer 4 is crap, oh and by the way its also no longer needed or wanted. Cydia does it better and has a develeper that doesn't release trash, doesn't keep its end users in the dark for weeks. Face it theres no place for Installer on FW2.0,

    My opinion and the opinion of a lot of othdr FW2.0, users.


    P.S. I forgot to capitalise and put my post in red text sorry.

    my installer keeps crashing so how to get this Cydia?? do u have to re-jailbreak or somin??

    use quickpwn to get cydia. That's the way I did it. I'm sure there's more.

    besides Installer 4 is beta. It shouldn't be a surprise when beta programs crash. That's why they're beta...because they're still f$%#ed up.

    Good luck.

    Default avoid installer
    Jailbroken 2.1 original iPhone; with BossPrefs having moved fonts for more space; several pages of purchased apps, 2-3 installed via Cyndia.

    Everything was fine for a few days, then wanted to see if anything was in Installer sources not listed in Cyndia. Just browsing in Installer led to a crash that forced iPhone into DFU mode!

    I'd avoid installer like the plague.

    I had a similar problem with installer, I did the same, opened it to see if there was anything new, When I tried to exit the program, I got a black screen with a spinning wheel. The iphone eventually froze and wouldnt start again. Thankfully I know the trick for getting it started without a restore.
    So long, and thanks for all the fish

    i guess everyone has the same problem with installer 4 cause what all you guys are saying i had experienced. The installer before i must admit was rocking until the 4 and if this installer does become stable it would own cydia i believe. I removed installer from my phone though and only use cydia atm cause installer has caused me to do numerous restores sadly to say.....
