    Question [Installer] What's going on with it ?

    Lately I have been having a few issues with installer that I have never before witnessed. My installer app freezes during refresh and I have to exit the app then re enter to find all sources refreshed, moving from menu to menu is slow and cumbersome, just recently it will crash forever and ever unless I rename it (thanks Xian for helping me fix) and today that happen where I needed to rename it. Another thing that has been brought to my attention (thank you n350z ) is that some of the recent packages don't change like they used to. What I wanted to know is are any of you guys expriancing things like this or other isuess or do any of you guys know whats going in with installer ....?

    Hi, yes i have been experiencing this too. sometimes the installer just hangs on the refresh and never goes right to the end, it's not a soucre issue because it even does it when you only have the pre installed source list. I also think it does not list all the latest apps as the recent packages list always looked the same to me. Just had to do a restore because of iblacklist and this time i'm not going to update the installer

    Yeah...same here. Sometimes it would hang during a refresh. Even worse, during an update, it would kick back out to SummerBoard and reboot!!!

    I just tried using the "Refresh Faster" and it seemed to fix the problem. However, a lot of sources were gone...even the ones that weren't "Uncatergorized".

    I think the Recent Packages list stays the same for marketing reasons. Many of the "always recent" apps are the same ones that are on the Featured page. For example, Tap Tap Revolution (a game) has been on the Today list for months, and it has been on version 1.6 all that time. It is made by Nullriver Software, the creators of Installer. Another one, Kate by RiP Dev, is commercial (paid) software. It wouldn't surprise me if RiP Dev paid Nullriver a fee for being featured and "Today".

    When are there going to be more sources for Cydia? Please...

    * on your iPhone: convert those files in a terminal with plutil (installed with Erica Utilities) or edit them with iFile (Cydia links).

    maybe it's RIP installer. Cydia should get more attention.

    Question

    I wonder what exactly is causing the instability of the new installer vs the the stability of the old one. Any one notice any change in its framework?
