    Hey MacRumors,

    I have a very annoying problem with one .deb in Cydia, called IconSupport.
    The problem is that it can't overwrite some file, and I can't get it out of the queue (everytime I open Cydia it auto-queues it).

    And everytime I try to install and I fail, it wants me to Restart SpringBoard.

    It should also be said that I got it through the Podulo source, best source I found so far, please recommend another if this can solve my problem by uninstalling the source.

    First error:
    Code:
    Error: Running
    Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
    Second error:
    Code:
    /var/cache/apt/archives/com.podulo.IconSupport_1.3_iphoneos-arm.deb
    
    trying to overwrite '/Library/MobileSubstrate/DynamicLibraries/IconSupport.dylib', which is also in package com.chpwn.iconsupport
    I have tried to delete the .dylib and .plist file through SSH with Cyberduck, but it didn't help.

    Thank you very much in advance.

    Unfortunately I cannot help but I can say something isnt right with IconSupport.

    I installed version 1.6 manually via "AutoInstall". It never came up in my Cydia Packages.

    I when I try to upgrade to 1.6.4 via a Cydia repo, I get the 2nd error you mentioned.

    trying to overwrite '/Library/MobileSubstrate/DynamicLibraries/IconSupport.dylib'

    Is there a why to uninstall this "IconSupport" app via iPhoneBrowser??

    Thanks!

    Fix!

    I Just Worked This Out
    SSH Into your idevice then run
    Output:
    If That Is The Output Do The Following
    It Should Say Something Like
    Setting up com.chpwn.iconsupport (1.7-1) ...
    Then Thats It!
    :D
    I Worked This Out From Experience With Linux and dpkg :)
