    Default [PwnageTool] Fake BSD subsystems

    I just pwned my phone (BTW, in other threads there was a discussion on AT&T activation and Pwnage. I am an AT&T customer, I neutered and unlocked and have full service).
    Installer does not see my BSD subsystem, even though it's installed (came with my custom firmware). What's the name of the fake BSD subsystem and in which repository can I find it? I searched for it but I can't find it.
    Many thanks

    Isn't Cydia another kind of BSD? I heard people have problems with Cydia. I already have BSD, I am not sure why I should add Cydia. But I need Installer to know that I have BSD, and I remember this thing that 'convinces' Installer that I have BSD.

    Am I wrong? Or can you elaborate?

    If you want Installer to list BSD Subsystem, install it again from Installer. It will overwrite the previous installation. nothing more.

    The problem is that the routine to check if BSD Subsystem is installed is simple > it checks the installed apps of installer plist instead of checking the presence of some files (only installed with BSD Subsystem) in the /bin and /usr/bin folder.

    Thanks. However, I decided to overwrite it, it's actually a cleaner solution. BTW, neutered, unlocked and activated with Pwnage Tool, I am an AT&T customer. Zero problems. Pwnage is a nice tool. I know some people had problems, but obviously in these forums problems are over-represented.

    So which one is the better? Re-installing the BSD as new from Installer or installing the Fake BSD? Any advantages or disadvantages in any of these two methods. The FAQ on this site tells to install Fake BSD.

    Is re-installing from Installer again going to take some extra space than it should be?

    The Fake BSD is used with Cydia. A few of the older programs check for the original BSD and the Fake BSD makes them "happy". Cydia is one of my favorites. Cleans up some problems of the original BSD.

    if you have installed BSD using pwnage and then installed fake BSD, it doesn't make a difference cuz the files are the same...
