    right i have this problem where, whenever i tap sources it will just automatically freeze and i have to manually shut it down
    this therefore means i can add any sources.
    I used my friends installer files and it did work till now

    so could someone be very kind and upload me from their iPod the installer folder

    /var/mobile/library/installer

    thanks

    It sounds as if it is a permissions problem, so the main Installer.app in /Applications.
    Try this command
    chmod 4755 /Applications/Installer.app/Installer

    If that doesn't work then I'd say try the usual.
    1) Delete "RemotePackages.plist" in /var/mobile/library/installer
    2) Relocate Applications and Create a Symlink.

    It sounds as if it is a permissions problem though.

    Anyways to fulfill your request

    wow i was just having the same problem. i had terminal installed and bossprefs and boss tool and i couldnt get anything else because of a lack of sources. i used the chmod command in terminal and it worked perfectly. Thanks a bunch for this post.
