ERROR – Package download failed!

After installing 1.1.3 and all that goodness, everyone I’ve talked to has the error when downloading some packages from Installer. This is due to Conceited software moving a repository.

You need to install Community Sources 2.5 or newer to fix this. However, you may not be able to because you are getting the same error when trying to install Community Sources. Just go to Sources, remove Conceited, refresh, Clear the Installer Queue, then re-install Community Sources. voila!

[…] Just fixed this on my new ziPhoned 1.1.4 16gb. Installer > Sources > Edit > delete Conceited > Done Reboot (home and power, shutdown) Clear your Installer queue (just go to install any app, but click ‘Clear Queue’ instead of Install) Installer > Install > Sources > Community Sources > Install (Your sources will refresh) Reboot again Alles gut! Dunno if the reboots are strictly necessary, but they made me feel better Props to Chris Carey for the fix. […]

Bless your heart, I’ve been going around sites looking for solutions for a better part of an hour – yours is the only one that works so far! Also, a tip – folks should get rid of any source that is unlisted or uncategorized at the bottom of their sources list.
