    Yesterday I bought an 8gig ipod touch and immediately came home and installed the 2.1 firmware and jailbroke it. It has Installer and Cydia but Installer does not work. I added more than a dozen different sources I found scattered across the web and not a single app will download.

    It gives me an error, ex:

    Unable to decode package more info at http://lyndellwiggins.com/iphone/roms.html

    I'm just trying to put some NES games on it and also GBA but I can't get anything to download.

    I've searched for the last hour but found nothing that helped.

    Please help me. I'm desperate.

    Dan.

    I think installer needs updated to work with 2.1. Mine was acting flaky.

    Well I downgraded to firmware version 2.0.2 and it is still acting up. Oh well...

    Cydia works just fine for what I need it to do.
