    Did you do:

    su root

    alpine

    chmod -R 4777 /Applications/Installer.app

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

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

    exit

    killall Springboard


    Credit to Gitykins for that.

    You must install mobileterminal from cydia. Or atleast, this is the easier way to do it. Then enter those exact commands and it should fix it.

    Oh and when I did it, I did not have to enter exit and then killall springboard, so don't enter that. If it still doesn't work, then you can enter it but I did not need to. I just clicked the home button to close mobileterminal, and when into installer and didnt get the message :]

    Please Register or Log in to view images


    but isnt that just changing the permissions to the installer file to 4777?
