Thread: Installer doesnt work...

  1. #1
    Default Installer doesnt work...
    Hi all,

    I was trying to do the 5 things in the dock, and apparently it was a old way, and screwed everything up..... So I restored my phone

    And then when I go to installer and try to download ANYthing it says

    Error
    Package download failed!

    So I restored my phone again, and still the same thing, I use ZiPhone to jail break the phone, its running on 1.1.4 like always

    Whats wrong?

    Thanks,
    Brandon

    The error you're getting usually means you have sources in Installer that are no longer working.

    Go to Installer. Select Sources from the bottom toolbar. Select Edit from the top toolbar. Delete all the source packages except AppTapp Official. To delete, click the red circle at the left, then click Delete on the right.

    Then refresh your sources.
    You should be able to download any app you can choose. The downside is that you may not see some apps. This part I haven't yet figured out.

    Or, you have installed a lot of applications, and have run out of space on your partition that stores your Applications. Download BossTool and relocate fonts and ringtones to create more space for your downloaded applications.

    When you click Install, be sure to clear out your queue. Installer has a feature that allows you to queue up installs. If one fails, Installer doesn't clear the queue; you have to do that manually. You'll know if you have a queue because when you click Install you'll see an expanded list of options including Install, Add to Queue, and Clear Queue. If you try to install something that's already in your queue, instead of Add to Queue you'll see Remove from Queue.

    So, if you're getting an error about installing BSD and you haven't installed it yet, then you may be trying to install something else earlier in the queue.

    I saw this yesterday while installing. Some apps put their name in the error box, which helps, but some don't.
