    im having the same "Cydia subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 2" problem. It just suddenly started happening last night after I installed TimeCapsule (from the same dev as Moleskine so maybe it's something to do with those apps?).

    Now the error comes up every time I try to install something.

    I'm using Cydia right now and I'm wondering does it have an AIM install application? If not is it possible to install two installers ? I really want AIM on my phone.

    Also how do I get the themes I've installed to work ? Any suggestions ?

    two installers is possible. I use both Cydia and the standard installer. Both work hgappily together.

    My Cydia not working at all since first day, how I can remove it and re-installing Installer? thanks,
    that post is on page 1 of this very thread.
    in short it tells you how to remove cydia. seeing how its been mentioned numerous times already, i'll quickly say it again.... cydia does not remove installer. so the second part of your question is moot.

    still having some issues with Cydia. The new version fixed the issue with the "Cydia subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 2" thing. But then I tried downloading Band Pack 1 and it died half way through. Now I get a pop-up each time I load cydia saying 1 package is in a bad state, however, I can't forcibly remove it or re-install it. Both fail (force remove does nothing). Is there a way I can do this manually (ie: manually remove band inst pack 1). Any help would be appreciated.

    If anybody is having the following error message using Cydia, then have a quick look here: Installation of SOME apps result in "subprocess pre-installation script returned error exit status 1"

    I can't find anything else about this problem...

    Any ideas?

    I had installed cydia and installer on my iphone version 1.1.4. Everything was working fine until few minutes ago when I felt the need to update cydia package :-( now after update I am unable to open cydia. when I try to open it it just "shuts down" (just the cydia). I have been unable to open cydia since then. I tried restarting iphone with no luck. None of the other application seem to be affected. Can someone (saurik?) please help me get cydia working.


    Edit: I added http://apptapp.saurik.com/ source in my installer, downloaded and then reinstalled cydia package. I am now able to open cydia. Hopefully this will help others.

    Can someone add a way to UNINSTALL Cydia, the only way I've found so far is to restore.

    There is another Cydia's repository: repo.iphoneapps.ru

    #cat /etc/apt/sources.list.d/iphoneapps.list
    deb http://repo.iphoneapps.ru stable main

    It is possible someone already asked about this problem but I can't seem to find it in this thread.

    Whilst trying to install Cydia via Installer, the app downloads and then begins to install when suddenly Installer closes and it's back to the home page.

    Obviously it cuts the installation and I have to start all the process again. I tried this several time but still just as it's about to install it closes on me.

    I don't see what makes this happen...perhaps a problem with another app?

    I'm on an iPod Touch with 1.1.1 firmware.

    EDIT: Never mind, it was a space problem.

    I have used installer since the beginning and it's great and has done its purpose.

    I've never been intrested in trying another alternative because the iphone is so finniky that if you install 1 bad app or file the whole ship could go down in flames.

    I froze up my iphone this weekend trying the new freebase, fiasco and what a perfect time to try cydia.

    iliberty? i think installed it automatically along with the correct (i assume) bsd subsystem that everyone is making all the fuss about.

    After a fresh 1.1.4 restore and a clean install of cydia, I see what all the fuss is about. the program is awesome!

    first. to update all the settings its not that hard? you run the application, goto "changes" and click update all. it updates all the unix commands, etc etc and you are good to go. In a matter of seconds I was re-installing all the app's I use to have, except this time I didn't have to wait for sources to refresh, etc.

    I for one am glad I was able to switch over and am enjoying the new installer. I still had to install apptapp installer because certain programs just haven't migrated to cydia yet, but the sooner people switch over and demand cydia repo's the sooner we can move to a open source install program. where we aren't forced to look at ad's or top 10 lists or etc.

    I didn't like it. Didn't understand all the warning messages and had fears of it messing up my phone. I prefer the Installer. Its simple and it works. Not saying your app is bad i think it is well made just i am skeptical about it

    Cydia's great but i have one question. Cydia will move the Application, Wallpaper, Fonts, Ringtones and Share folder to the media partition to give more space.

    My question is why does it move all those folders to /var/stash and append some random numbers/alphabets to the end of the folder name? I thought it supposed to move it to /var?

    I looked in the spaces.sh and move.sh script and the destination directory is /var/stash. What's the rationale of it moving it there and appending a random numbers/alphabets to the folder name?

    I think thats more than 1 question. Hehehehehehe

It just opens and shuts. how do i get installer back or get cydia working ? please help!!!

    yes, pf: Cydia is pretty cool indeed.

    If only... who's in charge of MMi's Cydia repository took "a little" more care of keeping it updated... ;-)

    (please, please, please: there have been two moleskine's updates, since the version you already host, which is three weeks old! *please*!!!)

    I have to say I currently prefer Installer for the lack of downloads through Cyndia, but Installers is not as featured as Cyndia, nor is a real packager, but Cyndia really needs to make it easier to add sources.

    What source would you add?Installer sources don't work in Cydia - it's not Installer.
