    So I know that I had installer crash, then it would freeze and five me an installed incorrect error, then a main script execution failed error.

    So i had all these problems within an hour, but thats ok i found an ok fix.

    - YOU WILL NOT LOSE ANY MUSIC OR APPLICATIONS, ETC
    - YOU WILL NOT HAVE TO RESTORE
    - ONLY TAKES ABOUT 1 MINUTE



    SSH into your ipod and delete installer.app (in /applications)

    Make a backup of localpackages.plist(/private/var/mobile/Library/Installer & /var/mobile/Library/Installer)

    Next Download the most recent ziphone (http://download.ziphone.org/) and select the Jail break method on the left.

    Let ziphone jailbreak your ipod, shouldn't take too long.

    Then restore (overwrite) your backup of localpackages.plist to the same place

    If ZiPhone gives you any errors (such as Bsd Root or whatever it is) just put your ipod in normal mode using ziphone.

    thats it, installer should be there and working if you did it correctly.



    Now i know this tutorial wasnt very detailed so to ask me anything just contact me on aim (sn: add45@yeashutup.com) and ill be glad to help

    hope this fixes your problems! If it did...uh... just write on my visitor wall or something since theres no rep system

    thanks mate.

    i thought this would get rid of all my apps that i have but it didnt and it only took me about 1 minute because i already have the ziphone jailbreaker on my laptop.

    You need to go to the root directory, look at this picture to do find out how.

    i circled the button you need to press. You need to continue to press it until you see the applications folder, then your good to go
