    Hey guys,

    I went to install Cydia today and suffered a terrible issue during the installation. I was using Installer, and Installer gave me one of those Main Script Execution Failed errors. This left Cydia.app on my springboard, however it was not under programs I already had installed on my iPod. I have tried to delete Cydia using MobileFinder, however it doesn't seem to want to delete for some reason (wtf?)... ALSO, while installing Cydia I think it corrupted my SSH or something because I'm no longer able to SSH into my iPod from my computer... I have the suspicion that my SSH got messed up during the "error". So as you can see, I'm stuck in a loop of never being able to SSH into my iPod, uninstall Cydia or really do anything about the Installer problem. Anybody have any help for me? Or should I just give up and restore?

    Also, for future reference, is the solution to fixing the error I described for Installer simply a matter of permissions for the Installer.app folder?

    Thanks guys. Any help is appreciated.

    since SSH is not an option (currently not working), how would i do it with Terminal? i know how to change directories, etc. but not delete a file or folder?

    hey electricbuffalo this just happened to me [twice]
    um what you need is total commander to delete the thing you tried to install [i just blanked on the name]
    then reinstall bsd subsystem in installer and reinstall installer
    it worked for me the first time but it didn't the second so now i'm restoring yay
    goood luck

    Please create your own thread for an issue rather than bumping a two-year-old one.
