    *****This is for the people who got the beta from Rip Dev not another source

    Where there is a new line that means hit enter


    Well until now you cannot get it through Cydia and until it is done the right way you cannot do it at all. Well thanks to Gabe_G23 (IRC name idk his IPTF name) I have been able to set this up correctly.

    What you need
    1. Terminal
    2. SFTP

    First there are the obvious things to do. Install into /Applications and set permissions

    In the email you have gotten it says to make sure it is set to root wheel so enter:
    Code:
    su
    alpine
    chmod root:wheel /Applications/Installer.app/
    Then it says make sure Scythe is 755 so enter:
    Code:
    chmod 755 /Applications/Installer.app/Scythe
    Then there is the one people always get messed up. Make sure the Installer file is set to a+srx. To do that you enter:
    Code:
    su
    alpine
    chmod a+srx /Applications/Installer.app/Installer
    I really hope this helped the Beta Testers. And i mean the actual beta testers.

    Why don't you just combine it into one terminal session, I.E.:

    su root

    alpine

    cd /

    chmod -R 755 /Applications/Installer.app

    chmod a+srx /Applications/Installer.app/Installer

    chown -R root:wheel /Applications/Installer.app

    killall SpringBoard

    It logs you in as the super user, meaning you can use all the commands in /usr/bin.
