    my installer is going very. Everything else on my ipod is fine except installer. It takes about 5 - 10 minutes to refresh sources and about 30 seconds to open up different categories to install things. What should i do.

    Now that is very slow, maybe your connection? and if it's slow on you categories it means, that most likely you have many sources, which take longer to open.

    i'll try to delete some sources and see how that works. I also keep getting an error when i try to download apps from installer. It says "Error downloading package!" I searched for a while and tried a few things they said but nothing worked.

    One of the reasons for that is that the repository is down.
    Sometimes, just simply restarting your iPod/iPhone helps.

    i've tried that a few times, it's not working. I guess the repo is down.

    here. If you are having problems with installer refreshing sources, then open something like winSCP or more prefferable, Terminal. Then make a terminal window and type in...

    cd /Applications

    cd Installer.app

    ./Installer


    Then read what it says when it says refreshing sources, then when it stops on one for a while, then you know which one is making your sources going slow.
