    Default [installer] can't fix the "main script error"

    i've searched and followed everything i could find on this site, mod my ifone. and hack the ifone. i ihad a 1.0.2 phone. restored to itunes came away with the 1.0.4 and current baseband. i used ziphone and everything unlocked fine and jailbroke although somehow it jailed itself. i fixed that by jailbreaking via independence. i was able to install the installer through comm sources and install maybe 10 programs. somehow (and perhaps it was a utility i installed) but i started to get the main script execution failed message. i used terminal and followed two methods...the one using wget (which could never be found) and then another u
    that used commands that consisted of "private" before Applications. i re-jailbraked, rebooted, eveything short of a restore but nothing seems to clear my problem. the rest of the on t-mobile the installed programs work fine. but i can no longer get any program to run. i was able via transmit to add summerboard themes and ebooks but nothing else.

    i'd appreciate any help i can get. believe me i've googled and searched all the forums and nothing has work for me on my macbook pro

    thanks

    alan

    found this and it worked perfectly:


    You can download installer app directly by downloading it from http://repository.apptapp.com/packag.../Installer.zip and then copy to your Applications dir using your SCP app of choice, but you’ll need to ssh into your phone afterward and do:

    Code:
    cd /Applications
    rm -rf Installer.app
    unzip Installer.zip
    chmod +s Installer.app/Installer
    chown -R root:wheel Installer.app
    chmod 4755 /Applications/Installer.app/Installer
    rm Installer.zip
    reboot

    You must install the BSD Subsystem to use chown (part of it).

    Or download chown from here and install it manually before installing Installer.

    Put it in /usr/bin/
