    The latest installer beta has the wrong link in the RemotePackages.plist file for the BSD subsystem.

    RemotePackages.plist is in /var/root/library/installer/

    You need to change




    Then open and immediately install the bsdsubsystem, I say immediatly, as you dont want to do one of its sources refreshes, and undo the work you have just done!

    This might be my problem with the 1.1.1 jailbreak (miiiiiiiiiight).

    Anyway, how do I alter that string? Can I do it with iBrickr?

    Bad link to BSD_Subsystem

    Dear Folks,

    How does one access the file RemotePackages.plist on the iphone, if one has not been able to establish a connection from a computer to the iphone?

    Thanks for posting gizzymo, but how can I tell if BSD subsystem got installed? The only option in Installer is to Reinstall. It does not say Uninstall. But is seemed to install, or at least go through the motions. Thanks for the help.

    change it into
    save it (RemotePackages.plist) in WinSCP and close that file

    Still with WinSCP open and connected, go to my iphone immediately and start in my springboard, go to all cathegories, system and try to install it again. But another error.

    I check my wi-fi connection, i restart my router, i tried also with this new url address which works in my computer:


    I don't Know what to do.

    Please help me, i am not an expert.
