    I have no wi-fi and am using Cyder to download some basic system (deb) files. I am not clear where to put these on my device.

    One post suggests:
    System/var/root/Media/Cydia/AutoInstall
    another:
    private/var/root/Media/Cydia/AutoInstall

    I can't locate either path - even allowing the autoinstall folder may not exist.

    A full search of my "Raw File System" (using iFunBox) gives likely folders...
    usr/libexec/cydia/
    var/lib/cydia/
    private/var/lib/cydia/
    private/var/stash/libexec.AEFJiJ/cydia/


    I also thought:
    private/var/root/media
    might be a contender? although there is no cydia folder present.

    Any direction here would be welcome.

    thx

    First off which version of Cyder are you using? 1 or 2? You don't need to manually go into iFunbox to put the deb file it there is a option for that in Cyder. If you want to use it you can read THIS thread. It says
    and you said that you can't find "System/var/root/Media/Cydia/AutoInstall".. When you first start iFunbox you are already in "System". Dont try searching the folder is probably not there, do it manually.

    Thanks for the link. This was the first path I referenced above:
    System/var/root/Media/Cydia/AutoInstall

    Not sure which ver of cyder.
    (C)2009 is all I can see in 'about' - as well as 2,60 fl. oz.

    The closest path I can get is system/var/ - type: symlink folder
    Are you saying i should add '/root/Media/Cydia/AutoInstall' to this?

    put the deb file in 'autoinstall' then reboot

    ------- EDIT ------
    Banged this around a bit and...
    interesting, the two paths
    System/var/root/Media/Cydia/AutoInstall
    private/var/root/Media/Cydia/AutoInstall

    are relational. I manually created them both and putting a deb file in one has it showing in the other. So, either is operationally valid.
    Reboot and - presto - installed.

    Couldn't get cyder to autoinstall. No problemo
