    Hey, is anybody else having an issue with installer in where a number of the same programs are listed in the recent packages under "today" every single day?

    some of the apps include (but are not limited to): moleskine, wallpaper, collage, iflickr, twinkle, and hidepod

    OK, i found a temporary solution.. The modification of LocalPackages.plist

    1/- Get the file /private/var/mobile/Library/Installer/LocalPackages.plist

    2/- Convert it using this:
    http://140.124.181.188/~khchung/cgi-bin/plutil.cgi

    3/- Open it with the notepad, at the end before:

    HTML Code:
    </array>
    </plist>
    Add thoses lines:
    HTML Code:
    	<dict>
    		<key>bundleIdentifier</key>
    		<string>com.googlecode.iflickr</string>
    		<key>name</key>
    		<string>iFlickr</string>
    		<key>category</key>
    		<string>ZZZ Fake Install</string>
    		<key>version</key>
    		<string>0.9</string>
    	</dict>
    	
    	<dict>
    		<key>bundleIdentifier</key>
    		<string>com.gogoapps.twinkle</string>
    		<key>name</key>
    		<string>Twinkle</string>
    		<key>category</key>
    		<string>ZZZ Fake Install</string>
    		<key>version</key>
    		<string>0.75</string>
    	</dict>
    
    	<dict>
    		<key>bundleIdentifier</key>
    		<string>net.ations.cre.ttr</string>
    		<key>name</key>
    		<string>Tap Tap Revolution</string>
    		<key>category</key>
    		<string>ZZZ Fake Install</string>
    		<key>version</key>
    		<string>1.6</string>
    	</dict>
    	 
    	<dict>
    		<key>bundleIdentifier</key>
    		<string>com.iappaday.collage</string>
    		<key>name</key>
    		<string>Collage</string>
    		<key>category</key>
    		<string>ZZZ Fake Install</string>
    		<key>version</key>
    		<string>2.2</string>
    	</dict>
    	
    	<dict>
    		<key>bundleIdentifier</key>
    		<string>com.hidepod.HidePod</string>
    		<key>name</key>
    		<string>HidePod</string>
    		<key>category</key>
    		<string>ZZZ Fake Install</string>
    		<key>version</key>
    		<string>1.0.4</string>
    	</dict>
    	

    4/- Save it and upload it back.
    5/- Done ! Installer will not show thoses apps in "Recent Packages" until the next upgrade of one of them..


    As you can see, we make Installer believe that thoses apps are already installed..
    But you have to do it again each time that an app is upgraded..


    Ps: The file LocalPackages.plist will be encrypted again at the next "Refresh" of Installer.


    Ps: I'm french, so for my ego: is my english right ?

    I tried talking to a guy from Nullriver but he was no help, but yes it is annoying because the apps arent being updated, just put to the top so incase we didnt see them on the front page, they can be shoved back into our faces...
