    Pau: You're welcome.

    Kanies: I have a couple of questions and suggestions:

    1) Where did you have your iPhone jailbroken & unlocked?
    2) What is the firmware version? Is it 1.1.1 or 1.1.2? You will see it when you connect it to iTunes when you click on your iPhone under devices.
    3) Try to get a program for windows that will allow you to access the iPhone. You can use something like CuteFTP:


    I'm not sure how comfortable you are in using. It is a program that will give you access to your iPhone kind of like a USB key or a hard-drive that you plug into your computer. You will also need to have a wireless internet (router) connection at home.

    I'll wait for your answer on this to know how to further answer you back.

    If you are really not comfortable with it, see if anyone you know with an iPhone has copied files into it. If so, then just give them the link to the file I posted and have them replace it on your iPhone.

    It is the only way to get your installer up and running again (there may be other ways but they risk to be more complicated involving you to re-jailbreak your phone and other stuff....)

    This is a disaster for me. I had a BAD feeling about updating Installer. Put it off for a bit. Then I thought "It's installer, it should be trustable". Nope. My phone is screwed.

    I installed it. When I tap on Installer icon, a blank page starts to come up then the springboard icons fly back in and I'm back on my home screen.

    I can't install/uninstall anything. My phone is 100% dead in the water. I've no clue how to fix it. The most I know how to do with the phone is Jailbreak, use installer, add sources. No clue how to move files, etc. into the phone.

    Is there any site that explains how to fix this in lay terms? I have 1.1.2 working with a mac.

    I have the Installer file on my mac (I think), but cannot figure out how to get it from my Mac into the iPhone.

    Does ANYone know of any site/guide/tutorial on how to do this that's written for a newbie? I can't find anything with FULL instructions. Thanks.

    Kanies & Meagain:

    Meagain: For Mac, I did a quick search on Youtube and found a kid that does a decent job showing you exactly how to get into your iPhone using Cyberduck. ( [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-TUByq9HTbs"]YouTube - How To SSH File-Share On Your Iphone/ iPod Touch (mac)[/ame] ) Follow his instructions until you manage to see the files on your iPhone. From there, open Finder on your Mac and simply drag the (uncompressed) file you got from my site and drag it over the "/Applications" folder so that it replaces the installer folder in it. You will get a prompt asking you to replace, just say Yes. If you don't get a prompt, then you may have dragged it somewhere else by mistake. Give it a shot and let me know.

    Kanies: Here is another video from youtube ( [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tqSCRUpeD_Y"]YouTube - TUTORIAL how to download, install and use cuteftp pro[/ame] )that I find best shows how to use CuteFTP. If you already have it, then the process will be similar to the link I put for Meagain. For the video of CuteFTP, ignore the part where he guides you to the installer on the iphone.

    I'm assuming that you both have SSH already installed on your iphones. Whoever unlocked them for you should have done that.

    Good luck for both. I hope this helps and don't forget to restart your iphone when you are both done. Hold down the sleep + home button until the iphone shuts off. The wait a couple of seconds and press the sleep button again to turn it on.

    Pupkus - thanks so much for trying to help. Unfortunately, I tried both cyberduck and Fugo and neither will connect. For Cyberduck the message is: i/o error: connection failed
    sftp://[email protected](my ip):22
    There was a problem connecting to (my ip):22

    Maybe I don't have OpenSSH on my phone? Nope. I can't find it anywhere. Is that my problem? And, does that mean I have to restore & revert back my firmware to 1.1.1 and start from scratch? Is there a way to install OpenSSH to the phone without using Installer (which is dead?). Oh I'll just die. LOL Seriously.

    Much thanks to Pupkus for IM'ing with me to help.

    Amazingly, I didn't have OpenSSH in the phone. This didn't help matters.
    I fixed it by loading the older version of Installer directly into the phone via using Independence to add only SSH into the phone, then using this instruction here
    using Fugu (which didn't work at first cuz SSH wasn't on my phone).... Actually, this didn't work right either at first - what DID work was uninstalling Installer - then reloading the old version via Fugu & SSH. LOL

    No, I won't be upgrading to the new Installer.

    mtaveras - That's what happened to me after I moved the file manually into the phone. The installer page (blank page) came up, stayed there for a long while, then home screen again.

    What I did was on my mac - totally deleted installer 100%... then reinstalled installer manually. This worked for me.

    I used the instructions from here

    slvrf150fx405: if you are not able to connect to your iphone using an FTP software, then maybe you don't have SSH installed on your phone.

    You should get it installed using the links that meagain provided to get SSH on your iphone. From there, try deleting some apps to make some space and then use the file that I put on my site to replace the one currently on your iphone.

    You can use one of the two Youtube references that I posted earlier on this post to help guide you on copying the files.

    Good Luck!

    Meagain: I want to thank for taking the risks with me on your iPhone and trying all the different suggestions. I'm glad it worked out! Hopefully this will provide solutions to anyone else having problems.
