    I used Pwnage tool to jailbreak 2.0.0 when it just came out so I don't have installer, only cydia... I'm wondering if there's any way I can install installer using cydia or using ssh? I just really don't want to update or restore to 2.0.2 and lose everything (mainly game saves)...

    Go to wherever the application folder is for Pwnage on mac, and look for an Installer.tar file, or some type or archive with the name Installer. Open the tar in an archive manager, and take the .app folder out. SSH it to /Applications, permissions to 777, etc.

    That worked, thanks!

    I'm getting a permission error when I run it even though I changed the permissions of the application (and all subfiles) to 777. It still seems to work though... I might just wait until they update installer and then let it fix itself. Thanks again!

    Nah, that's an error you get when you install it through SSH.

    Run these commands in terminal:

    su root

    alpine

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

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

    killall SpringBoard


    After it resprings, you sohuldn't get the error anymore.
