    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 i fixed it.


    just Go to Winscp, then navigate to /Applications and delete installer. Then jailbreak using
    the most recent ziphone (http://download.ziphone.org/) and select the Jail break method on the left. WITH OUT RESTORING!!!

    Then just let ziphone jailbreak your ipod, shouldn't take too long.

    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!

    im not responsible for you doing this incorrectly or anything that may happen however

    I think what he's saying is jail break it dellete installer Then rejailbreak with ziphone.

    But it is worded a little odd.

    Works, but not that great...

    It works it doesn't give me that error anymore.... but i have like 30 apps on my screen, and since you reinstalled the installer, all of the sources are gone, and you cannot uninstall any of your programs through installer anymore.

    hey yo!

    I was really bothered about a problem I was having with my iPod.

    I couldn't install any other app or even update any that I had.

    So I did as you said, I SSH into my iPod, deleted Installer.app and run ZiPhone 2.6b and voilĂ ... My installer is working as a charm again. The only inconvenience is that is the old version so it means installer runs a bit slower when it's resefreshing and I don't have the search textedit anymore. I can live with that.

    And about the Sources... Yes, I think I lost all of 'em. I just have those 6. I don't even have the Update of Installer.app anymore.... But that's ok for the moment, as soon as they find out what the problem was with the new version of Installer, I'll update it.

    Thanks again!

    i have just did what you did, but the source won't update, it just goes a bit in the progress bar and the refresh would just stop and freeze.

    what gives?

    Its still refreshing, it means the source is down, wait about a minute and it should continue, but it will always finish
