so i installed the alpha version of summerboard manually. but now that version is on installer.app. . .but installer.app doesn't see i have this installed.

what should i do? i don't think it's safe to delete what i did manually, then install via installer.app(won't that like delete my settings and all)

I was in the same boat as you..... so I just went ahead and installed it via Installer, which worked fine.

When I go to SMBprefs I can see that it's running the new version. I could also tell it did re-write the files, as when I rebooted the custom icon I had used had gone back to the original.

Just install it from installer.app, that is what I did. It'll over write the files you put in manually, and mark it as installed in installer.

I installed the new summerboard manually already. Now when I try installing it through installer, it says I have to uninstall the older version first. :(

To clear up some confusion:

This SummerBoard version is the same version you guys were installing Manually. It's only change is that it's available in Installer.app. At first, I couldn't see SummerBoard in the list until I UPGRADED Installer.app through Installer.app. Please also note, there is no advantage of installing it through installer.app if you already have it installed manually. It doesn't make it better or more stable. As a side note, even if you install it with Installer.app, you cannot uninstall it from Installer.app, it will only uninstall the SMBPrefs.app from your springboard and you'll still have to uninstall the rest manually from FTPS.
