Thread: Does anyone know the URL that the Installer.app connects to?

    Default Does anyone know the URL that the Installer.app connects to?
    Hi,

    I just wanted to browse the Installer.app applications and programs from my FireFox / IE browser. I like to stay updated with what programs are on there, but I can't always connect w/ my iPhone since my internet is through a physical DSL cable and I don't have WiFi where i'm at.

    Thanks in advance!

    It connects to multiple repositories.

    You can check the list here:

    var/root/library/Installer/PackageSources.plist
    .

    Almost every file from Installer.app is also listed on this site: http://pxl.ibrickr.com/

    Default Still need some assistance...
    Thanks for those 2 responses!!! And thanks to whoever moved my post, I didn't know where specifically to put it... sorry.

    I checked this file with Finder, Preview, and Squid on my iPhone. Neither of the 3 methods was able to yield a URL. Is there a specific program that I'm supposed to use?

    I've also checked the pxl.ibrickr and the other [zxcv].ibrickr site and they have different things from the installer.

    Does anyone know of a way for me to just download those .pxls into my computer so I can add pxls without having to connect and download each time?

    To clarify:
    Installer does not use PXL

    You need to use iBrickr or Breezy to install a pxl package.

    Yes, you can very easily download any pxl package and save it on your computer.

    You can add a new preview type to Finder to preview plist files in MobileTextEdit, but be very, very careful - If you save a binary file from MobileTextEdit, it will be corrupted and can trash your phone.

    Or you could use a desktop app like iPhoneBrowser, iPhoneList, Funtastic, iBrickr to copy the file to your desktop and view it there.
