    When I try to intall a .deb in ifile, it gives me this error

    dpkg: requested operation requires superuser privilege

    Does anyone know how to fix this?

    Please don't say use mobileterminal or ssh I would like a solution not an alternative

    dont you have an internet connection right now? you can obviously "tether" your computer and make your own wifi connection if your computer is connected to a wired connection... (ad hoc network) the latest version of ifile is 1.3.0-2

    Just use mobile terminal.

    su root
    password (alpine, unless you changed it.)
    dpkg -i /location/name.deb

    Or put the .deb in /var/root/Media/Cydia/AutoInstall and reboot.

    other then that, wait for an update.

    I did end up doing that, but I want a solution not an alternative
