    Hi all,

    I am new to the forum, great info here.

    I have a jailbroken 1.1.2 phone, a guy put a ton of software on here but in comparing the phone to my friend's iphone, I don't have the installer.app on it.

    From doing some brief research, the installer.app is very useful as opposed to dropping software on to the iphone with an SSH app like PuTTY. I'm not opposed to installing apps with SSH but it would be a lot easier with installer.app

    When I talked to the guy who installed all the software, he said that installer.app causes problems and he used SSH and he is not responsible if it bricks. I looked at the installer.app and it seems one would have to downgrade the firmware to put it on (kind of complicated?), is this the case, or can you simply install installer.app on a 1.1.2 jailbroken phone?

    If you guys can offer some advice, I would be greatly appreciative!

    New to Iphone - also, I accidently took off the black panel at the back, didn't go back on flush (seems like it isn't designed to come off), wondering if I buy a new black panel, if it needs a tool to put on right?

    Also the back casing is flush on one side, just off on the left side (but I noticed many people have this - factory build issue)

    one other note: It is unlocked (without using turbsim etc), I believe he opened the phone and did something but it works with intl. sims straight like that.


    Thanks for your help

    Tony

    My opinion would be that you could just download installer.app and SSH it to your phone the same way he SSH'd everything else to your phone. Installer.app is an amazing program as long as you don't stray too far from the trusted sources.

    Tried this. I now have the installer app icon etc.

    But it simply comes up empty and bounces me back to the main menu after 15 secs.

    Did some reading, seems you need to downgrade then install it then upgrade firmware again...

    sceptical about doing that, don't mind to install apps with SSH but most seem to want you to browse the repository with installer.app
