    OMG THANX K WIZZLE. I decided to just copy his post here because he helped me so much. Ok here goes the situation...for over a month now my insaller would just crash to my summerboard without even starting up. But thanks to K Wizzle(not sure how he knows this) B, i finally got it to work....

    HIs exact post:

    "ssh into your ipod or use mobilefinder app on the ipod and go to var/root/library/installer and delete RemotePackages.plist"

    Does this get rid of the 300MB limit or something? My installer keeps crashing due to not having enough space, will this solve it or no?
