    Hello, I have a 3.1.2 iPhone 3GS I have 16 gb jailbroken with Blackra1n RC3. The problems are:

    - First on the iPhone, when I download an application on the App Store, I receive an error message: "Unable to download the application. Išin can be downloaded when you reconnect to the iTunes Store from your computer "

    - Then, when I connect to Itunes, I have another error message: "The application" išin was not installed on the iPhone "iPhone Mikael" because an unknown error occurred ( 0xE8000041).

    Also, I tried with other applications but the problem is the same.

    So I can not install any application.

    With the help!

    it is possible if you have your SHSH on file in cydia. With a few changes to some iTunes config files it should work to restore to 3.1.2, you might be able to just restore to 3.1.2. I dont think apple has quite signing it yet. DL it and give it a try and if it gives you an error you might have to make those changes to iTunes config files to direct the server to sauriks servers. Correct me if im worng. I dont have the new bootrom so i have not dealt with it yet.

    Thanks for the help. I changed the application /var/mobile/application folder owner to 'mobile' and the error goes away and application installation becomes successful. I almost did a restore to my ipad.

    Had that error popping up for both paid and jailbroken apps when I updated my 3gs to 4.2.1 using GreenPois0n.

    I did the following in MobileTerminal (under mobile not root) and all is well:


    chown -hR mobile /var/mobile

    I had the same problem. I figured it out tho. While i was browsing though iFile i accidentally unzipped a zip file and pretty much copied my device. after snooping around through it again i changed it to "mobile" instead of "root" and it works. Thanks D

    That's great. Hey you know, now that I think about it, my problem started when I downloaded iFile. Perhaps I screwed something up by accident. Anyway, I'm glad you fixed the problem.

    Drove me crazy until I stumbled upon a forum where a member mentioned how to fix all permission problems, so I just took a shot in the dark.

    Okay here is how they fixed the apps from not downloading. Go to ifile then go to /var/mobile then click the arrow next to applications then it will take you to the file attributes. Then go down to owner and change it too mobile instead of root. Then your good to go!

    Hello

    Does anyone know who to resolve this issue correctly, restoring iPhone or manually changing the root problem through cydia?

    My father is using the iPhone 4 with the jailbreak included and his firmware is 4.2.1?

    I need help figuring out a way to update apps or install apps without doing the following; restoring the phone completely or changing the

    root problem through CYDIA, because of this error "itunes error 0xe8000041" it won't allow this process of UPDATING APPS OR INSTALLING

    APPS THROUGH iTunes correctly. THANKS WHOEVER CAN FIGURE THIS OUT, IS TRULY ADVANCED IN KNOWLEDGE OF COMPUTER OPERA

    TING SYSTEMS!
