    Exclamation [Solved] Installer crashes when I try to install anything

    whenever I try to install anything (I tried installing 'sand' game), after the installer downloads it, it crashes and displays springboard. When i saw in the Finder, it had partially installed Sand. I removed it and tried again but no luck.

    What i tried
    - installing different applications available on installer
    - respring
    - restart

    Pl help. Thanks a lot!

    Remove the temp folder located here by typing this command in terminal/ssh:

    rm -R private/var/root/Library/Installer/Temp
    Then restart and try to install an app again.

    Yes, because you probably had some corrupted installer temp files in it.

    (i made a mistake when writing remove, i wrote rename instead, dunno why )

    Delete Installer sources/repositories folder and plist by typing this command in terminal/ssh:

    rm -R /private/var/root/Library/Installer/
    rm /private/var/root/Library/Preferences/com.apptapp.Installer.plist
    Then restart and try launching Installer.app and install an app again.

    If it crashes again, you'll have to find a Installer.app and install it manually in /Applications/

    There is another problem: If you installed too many application the part of the iPhone reserved for application could be full - so no more applications can be installed. Try to remove some of the big applications and retry.


    (biggest space consumers: MobileChat, ApolloIM, gpsPhone, ScummVM)

    If it was a question of disk space, he would get a "low disk space error".

    Anyway, there are 2 methods: a manual (page 1) and an automated one (page 8).

    I had a problem with low disk space and the installer crapping out. It would get past 'downloading package...' and start 'installing package...', at which point it would crash and take me back to Summboard.

    I deleted some apps I had installed (scummVM and some games) and all was well again.

    Also, I didn't get an error from installer about the low disk space. It just crashed.
