    Default Trip1Prepz install hangs (preparation for 1.1.1)

    When I try to install Trip1Prepz in Installer.app, the installation hangs. It downloads the package, unpacking, then starts to install, but when it's at about 15% it hangs (and sometimes I get a warning about running out of disk space, even though iTunes says it has over 1 GB free space).

    It's only the installation that hangs, not the Installer.app software. I can exit to the home-screen whenever I want to.

    How can I fix this?
    ...is it another way to create a media-symlink?

    iMags, same thing happened to me. if you check to see the result of that hang in the iphone you'll see that it actually does the process. i don't know if completely but does the symlink. what i learned from this is that i'd rather do that manually. and by that i mean installing ssh and bsd through command line and then typing mv and ln -s to backup and create the symbolic link. why you might ask? because this part, while appearing to be simple to some is very delicate. should you screw up the symlink part you'd be quite screwed as you're messing with the root folder of your iPhone.

    but that's just me. i hope this helps. i guarantee you'll be happier with the result and more confident in the whole process. i believe that the more confident you feel after each step you complete the less room for error you have and easier it is to spot where there's a mistake. i also make the habit of running all command line scripts and apps with the -v (verbose) flag to see the whole process. that way i can see what it's doing and understand it if an error comes up. this proved useful as installMacSSH was running and finished saying it was all successful while having problems to connect to com.apple.afc. reading around i figured you have to change that in that case to com.apple.afc2 in iPHUC for it to communicate efficiently.

    sorry this came out so long but i hope it sheds a light to your problem.

    i did not get the app to work either.

    just follow the alternate instructions, and all will be fine. I just did 4 iphone. you might run into a problem installing ssh (as others have). I used the following link:

    Your phone will have to have less than 300mb on it, and you must be connected to iTunes before attemptiong to install Trip1Prepz, or it will fail. After you install Trip1Prepz then use the update button, not restore, to go to 1.1.1. Then you're good to go. Read the original jailbreak readme closer, it says, BEFORE INSTALLING trip1prepz, you MUST be connected to iTunes.

    Note: If you failted once, you'll have to restore to 1.0.2, and do it over. It took me 5 hours yesterday to figure this out. MUST CONNECT TO iTUNES before attempting first install of Trip1Prepz. That is the key, and nothing else.
