    Default Installer source refresh freezing - ANYBODY ELSE?

    When I open Installer, it begins refreshing my sources. But it never finishes. Instead, it gets maybe 90+% done and just sits. I've let it sit for over 30 minutes to no avail.

    Effectively, I can't go into Installer at all in to install, uninstall, or update any applications. If this is just a bad source, can I manually edit the .plist or something to delete the offending source? I'm on 1.1.2 and want to upgrade to 1.1.3 but I need to know I can install applications after doing so.

    BTW, I have a couple of the "huge list of sources" installed. I'm sure that doesn't help in this situation.

    This also brings up a REQUEST: Can we choose when to refresh the sources instead of having it do it automatically? Also - and probably even more handy - can we please refresh individual sources rather than having to refresh the entire list every time?

    To tweak your sources list you don't need to do anything complicated, just turn on Airplane mode then launch Installer. Select Cancel when the pop up appears and then you can go to sources and delete 'offending' source sites and/or edit to your hearts content. When you are finished, turn Airplane mode off then turn on wifi and restart Installer and you should be fine.

    Default Order of source refreshes?

    That's a GREAT TIP! Thanks! (I should have thought about that...)

    Now my problem is that I don't WHICH source is the "offender". Does Installer refresh in alphabetical order, randomly, or what? I don't have a problem deleting sources, but I would hate to go through ALL of them before finding the one that has a problem.

    To see what repo installer is hangin on when refreshing do this :

    ssh into phone as root

    cd /

    cd Applications

    cd Installer.app

    su mobile

    ./Installer

    Then watch the terminal window and see where it hangs and remove that source.

    I am not actually getting stuck, per se, in Installer. I just have a lot of sources that need refreshing.

    But there should be a way for it to complete the refresh without shutting down (and without having to change autolock). I find if it shuts off prior to completing a refresh it starts all over again when turned back on.
