    Installer.app CAUTION
    I have a couple of friends who have had major issues after they installed the installer.app into the iphone... further investigation by them said you hav to use extreme caution using this app becuase on some iphones the app is so damaging that not even a restore will always fix it...
    i wanted to share this, of course do whatever you want but these guys are major MAC IT guys and they pretty much know all of these products inside and out...

    This is pretty much what Apple are saying with regard to unlocked iPhones. They warn that future upgrades are likely to render "jailbreak" iPhones as inoperable.

    This is a bunch of FUD being propagated by Apple. There is nothing wrong with using Installer.app on your iPhone. I've installed that along with a dozen applications with no negative effects. I've had my cousin and several friends do so as well, also with no problems.

    Either your friends have been drinking too much Apple Kool-Aid or they're just idiots who don't know how to do basic stuff like install an application.

    I'm just waiting for the hordes to arrive when the next Apple update breaks every jailbroken iPhone, waving placades detailing their "right" to abuse the iPhone EULA as they see fit. That's what Apple are warning about.

    Well said. I'm happy Apple spoke out about unlocking and won't accept it.

    Whats funny is how Kash is so insulted from using unauthorized hacker apps on his iphone, that he has to insult friends who were just being cool and giving me a heads up... not cool at all....

    Maybe you should drink a little apple kool-aid and look for more hacks for your iphone..... funny how you have been the hacker advocate on these boards ive seen you promote installer.app more than anyone here... Ive been sent PMs for infractions for little things I wonder how many you have received....

    I say have fun and install away whatever you like, just don't whine about the manufacturer in here if an update breaks your phone. By all means ask in here for help and input to fix it YES, but don't complain about the manufacturer not making accommodations to fix something it never designed in the first place. Personally, I use my iPhone to make CALLS and as such choose to leave it bone stock for now in the interest of reliability. BTW: Flaming people in the forums and calling them idiots is kind of lame Kash. I would have expected a bit more couth from an experienced forum member such as yourself.
    Never judge a man, untill you have walked a mile in his shoes...
    That way you'll be a mile away from him, and you'll have his shoes.

    Also bear in mind that talk of breaking the OSX EULA isn't allowed here - I assume that discussion of breaking the iPhone EULA isn't either...?

    using apptap installer does not permanently damage the iphone. Neither do any of the 20 or so apps that I've installed with it. Your friends either don't know what their talking about, you don't understand what they were telling you, your friends work for apple and are simply regurgitating apple propoghanda, or you work for apple and are posting stuff like this all over the net.

    The issue is complicated enough that you can't state your experiences as being the same for everyone. There are reports of unmodified, locked iPhones failing as a result of this upgrade - do they all work for Apple too?

    How do I uninstall installer.app? My iphone isnt bricked or unlocked. The only thing on it is installer.app, mainly because I was going to put games on it.

    Edit: Nevermind. A restore worked. Going to the Apple Store tomorrow because I lost my sim tray and my macbook is messed up. Wish me luck.
