    I have my iPT fw 2.0 pwned and was curious about another comment regarding installing Installer. Can Installer be added at this point?

    Yes it can, but Despite what I'm sure you've heard "ahh cydia sucks" "it crashes" *runs away from cydia*

    cydia ismuch more stable than installer
    It Also has more applications and styles than installer.

    If you still want installer it's actually quite easy, google around for a download of " 4.0b" and eventually you'll find it. then just ssh it to your applications folder like you would anything else.

    I know Installer is supposed to be much worse at this point, but I'm curious what is out there (Everything can be deleted eventually). I guess I should have picked up on the idea of SSH-ing it to the iPT.

    download a slightly older version here (when it loads it should tell you theres an update of installer)

    and heres how to install:

    - Upload to the /Applications directory on your iPhone.
    Use any SFTP client (user:root, password:alpine)
    - Connect to your iPhone with an SSH client
    Prefer putty for windows or Terminal for mac
    - Execute the following commands:
    chmod -R 777 /Applications/
    chmod a+srx /Applications/
    - Reboot iPhone
