Thread: Update Installer > Installer crashes

    Default Update Installer > Installer crashes
    Hello All,

    Yesterday I updated Installer,... If I remember correctly it was Installer 3.0, don't know which version number the new one would be.

    Every time I try to start up installer it crashes immediately. I don't know what I should do next, cause I don't know how to start it again?

    Is there anybody who could help me with it? Thanks in advance.

    (btw: I did restore it back to its factory settings,... firmware 1.1.3)

    Did Installer crash while refreshing sources? Because in that case, its because Ste's source has been facing downtime issues, due to which it doesn't load, causing Installer to stop.

    thanks aahandagr8! But I don't think that's the problem,... Installer quits immediately. So no welcome/intro screen just an immediate crash.

    Hm - I'm having the same problem, it initializes itself and just when it starts to refresh the sources, it crashes. Is there one of the sources down again? This happened right after Installer wanted to update itself, which I let it do, when I then tried to download the first new App it crashed and will not properly restart since.

    What should I do?

    Oh, I am still on 1.0.2 (because I didn't know what was used to unlock it, I didn't want to take the chance). But maybe now it is time to actually do the whole virginizing and updating the firmware...


    Some advice, please.,...


    Thanks,

    EXACT same problem here.
    I also have no knowledge of how to update the firmware since the phone came unlocked to me.

    HI guys, I am on 1.1.2 unlocked and jailbroken, and I am also having the same problem! I can't follow the last advice, cuz, it just goes to the white blank screen, then goes straight back to homescreen, so it doesn't even show me the welcome installer screen??
    Stay Sexy, Sweet, and Wonderful!

    So I guess this means that everyone who chose installer over cydia isn't to happy right now huh? Just messing with you guys, I hope things work out right. It seems installer 4 is looking good and almost ready anyway.
