    Default [warning] Adding too many sources in Installer

    Just so you guys don't replicate my mistake.
    I've been hapilly runing 1.1.4 for some time so I got bored and added every possible source that I could find.
    Unfortunately Installer didn't take it lightly... It just wouldn't launch anymore, so I copied plist to my desktop and realized that it was roughly 40MB in size! After editing it on my computer (Removed most sources) i ssh'd it back to my phone. Unfortunately that didn't work. Installer launched but wouldn't install or uninstall anything so I had to restore.
    Long story short, do not add too many sources ;-)

    imack, that has happened to me, so here is what I did. I used MobileFinder and went into the Installer subdirectory under ~/Library/Installer, and deleted the RemotePackages.plist file. I closed out of MobileFinder and ran the Installer application again, and it ran without a problem. It took a while to get through the "Refreshing resources..." screen. I don't know why it refreshes automatically. There should be an option to refresh only when you request it manually instead of refreshing automatically at startup.

    It auto refreshes every 12 hours, from the last auto refresh. Manual refreshes do not reset the auto refresh counter for some reason.
