    Default error main script execution failed
    hi everybody thanks in advance for any help.......

    i have a jailbreaked unlocked 1.1.1 iphone, my problem is when i go into installer and try to install or uninstall anything i get this error: main script execution failed. and to top it all off i cant connenct to my iphone via ssh with winscp or putty i get an network error connection refused,

    many have attributed my first error with not having installed bsd but that is not the case it is installed and regarding my second error well openssh is installed, and yes winscp is configured properly after rechecking five times to make sure.

    my first question is does anyone else have this problem ???

    is there a fix ??????

    do i need to do everything all over again ??????

    pls help not sure what to do.

    thx again.

    Someone helped me on this one, i had installed a app from the installer, after that i was bout to install more till i gotten that error. I think you need to delete the previous app you installed or somethink though i did alot google search and none actually have a solution

    Unhappy nothing yet
    still no solution for our problem, ive been searching all over the net, and nothing, ive found various other threads that mention the problem, but it seems that in those cases the error is limited to one app, contrary to what im dealing with which is a total main script execution error when installing or uninstalling.

    i fear my only resource is going to be a complete downgrade, upgrade, jailbreak and unlock once again, but i am fearful that this in some way will brick my phone or something else will go wrong.

    if i find something ill post it here but hopes are not high.

    happy new year to all !!!!! i know its a little late but better than never

    Most your problems are attributed to this issue discussed here:

    However, paramedic - your problem sounds worse. You indicated you also cannot uninstall anything. This cannot be a free space issue, I think. Uninstalling does not require disk space. It frees disk space. The way to troubleshoot and fix this is to use an SSH terminal, but you indicated that you cant connect for whatever reason. Therefore, I only can suggest to you - restore.
    Please do not send me messages here as I never check them. If you need to contact me, send me an email. My contact info is easy to find from inside Cydia.

    Are you getting this after installing the extended preferences app? This has been an issue many people have had and the developer of the app is working on a fix. Just hang tight, it should be soon.

    Default solved. for me atleast.
    I had the same problem with pocket guitar, and figured out that it was because i had BSD Lite installed. I uninstalled the lite version and installed the normal 6megabyte version.! hope this helps!
