    is there a way to disable the installer from respringing automatically when its closed?

    I find many times that I spend a few minutes installing apps and then exit to catch a glimpse of a number in the corner of my IM application before it respeings... then I don't know what was said or even who to ask to repeat it...

    right now, after I'm done installing things I press reinstall on BSD subsystems and it says "download failed" and doesn't respring when I exit. but this is kind of annoying

    You can.
    Just edit it in a hex editor and hope it works.

    Other than that... no.

    Thats a load of BS! Don't try act all smart and use words that noobs obviously wont understand.

    Just press and hold the home button for 7 seconds after you install an app, and it wont respring.

    Problem solved.

    Ezra. He said to disable it, that doesn't do that.
    If you don't understand a word, you ask or you look it up.

    If you go and look at some threads on this forum there are a lot of words "noobs" won't understand. There are a lot of threads about "What is ZiPhone?" and what not. So that is a load of BS.

    Ok, but my post is a lot more helpful then yours.

    I'm giving him a way that will save him the trouble of what he's doing now.

    Just say I'm sure of a way to do that, BUT you can bypass it by holding the home button or whatever.

    Ok?
