    I have the ControlPad app for the Snes HD emulator on my 3GS but the source appears to be down so I can't get that app anymore for my wife's iPod touch.

    I packaged the into a .deb file and hosted it on my repo

    It will install via Cydia and show on springboard but will only open for a split second and then exit

    Please can someone tell me what I have missed.... Should I have changed the permissions of the files before I .deb'd them?

    Any help appreciated

    Here is the link to the original post:

    The app may not be compatible, incorrect permissions, need signing (ldid -S ...), missing preferences, or a number of other reasons. I suggest contacting the original author.

    The problem is that source is down but I did manage to get the controlpad app from there which does work on my 3GS so presumably has been code signed

    When I repackaged the files from my 3GS to mirror on my repo, it won't open on my wife's phone

    I think this is a simple step I am missing

    'Repackaging' an app is not as simple as it appears. There are control files, install scripts and other misc options during the install. It's really difficult to say what is wrong, it could be simple. Usually permissions and ownerships are at the top of the 'won't run' list Checking the syslog may help.
