Installer 4.0 Beta 5 Released

Installer 4.0 Beta 5 Released

Posted August 17, 2008 at 12:58pm by iClarified
RiP Dev has released a Installer 4.0 Beta 5 with many bug fixes and visual enhancements. You download the latest beta by refreshing the RiP Dev source in Installer 4.0 and then installing the update.

What's new?

* Many visual enhancements and fixes in regards to source and packages display.
* Fixed an issue with failing installs with dependencies under some circumstances.
* Fixed a bug causing package information to be displayed incorrectly (size 0 bytes) on the first access, or when the custom information HTML page (such as packages from Big Boss' repository) was not displayed.
* When updating a package, and one of its dependencies also has an update available, the dependency will be updated as well.
* The package icons will only be downloaded when on the Wi-Fi to help you save on bandwidth.
* The repositories are being refreshed upon Installer.app launch so you always stay on the bleeding edge with the updates. This is exeperimental behavior and we're not yet sure it will make it to the final release.
* Fixed a script command Confirm that was returning invalid button index for the "OK" button.
* Lots and lots of both cosmetic and internal application core fixes that improve the overall performance, presentation and stability of the application.

We will begin testing the iClarified repo on beta shortly. Stay tuned!

I had jailbroken my ipod touch, customized it and everything, and then I downloaded the 2.0 software. Little did I know that I would lose everything. So I Pwned my ipod touch once again and kinda customized it. Yesterday I wanted to customize is further, but Cydia was no where to be found on my ipod!! Can someone please tell me what happened? I have the most current itunes. Did they put something in that to take it away??

I agree, I think we need to just appreciate the time and effort going into this. The only reason we are doing thi is to be different or ahead of the curve. So I personally would hold off on the bitching for now, especially when its still in beta. Its not final so maybe you should wait till it is and then install it. For now i can deal with the hiccups to sport this new shit. Great work guys!! Keep it up.

Man, I get tired of seeing in ALL of the forums and comments how crappy Cydia and Installer (and WinPwn, Pwnage, etc.) are! I've been using both since they each were released way back when, and I use both today. I, too, have restored my iPhone more than once due to software I chose to install. But that's just it - I CHOSE TO INSTALL IT! If you don't want to deal with the risks these types of programs present, then just use your iPhone with the software it came with. The App Store has problems, too, so I can't even say "just stick with Apple-approved stuff". These people spend a ton of time AS A HOBBY creating this FREE software for all of the Haters to cry about. There are a ton of us out here that use the stuff and don't whine that "Installer is sh!t" or "Cydia sucks" everytime we face an issue. Yes, even if that issue is a full restore of the phone. By all means, tell us about issues and problems that you experience. Even give suggestions to the developers and the rest of the community on what enhancements you'd like to see or which applications you useful or buggy. But please stop discounting people's hard work by labeling their software as excrement. (BTW, I'm typing this while iTunes puts all the data back on my pwned iPhone after a full restore due to a program I uninstalled from Cydia left my phone unbootable. And I still installed BOTH Cydia and Installer with my custom firmware.)

tosho - August 17, 2008 at 2:59pm
This is the worst piece of code I've seen so far on iphone, give us a break and start using cydia. I mean you can't even scroll through the packages without freezing the whole thing and why do the tasks increase during scrolling? Its not like i want to install anything!!!!!!!!
