    I'm a little stuck here and need some help, story is i'm one of those unlucky one with problem updating installer to 3.1, so i manually ssh it into my touch, running on 1.1.4, now it works but i get this msg saying installer should be set to root:wheel..

    Does anyone know how i set this? i've looked around but i just can't find any info on it, i found something bout UID = root and GID = wheel? not sure bout it but I'm using winscp and i tried ticking the two boxes next to them under propertise for the installer.app folder, the octal changes to 6755 then when i go ok however, it doesn't change, the boxes gets unticked.

    so am i doing something wrong? or am i suppose to do something else first?

    Any help is appreciated, thanks in advance.

    try this: add losprog.com/repo.xml
    then install FixPerms which will chmod /var/mobile to root:wheel
    hope it helps

    It's not a permission problem, it seems to be an ownership problem.
