    I have this exact problem?

    I followed this;

    and can confirm all is exactly as shown here

    however each time I open Installer and select ANY item to install it will download the package the start to install it and instantly show the following;

    Now this must be to do with the symbolic linking done above so the question is has anyone else had this problem and if so how do we go about repairing it?

    Would the problem relate to the folder permissions?

    Currently have a great looking 1.1.3 which I can WinSCP into not not much else :(

    ssh into the phone and run this command:

    chmod ug+s /Applications/Installer.app/Installer

    Fixed it for me.

    I uninstalled Community Resources and reinstalled it. Fixed the problem. No chudmown^1+fubu755=own/dir mumbo jumbo to type.
