iPhone hackers: freaking MORONS

And so Installer.app had a new version. It asked me to update it. I went with it. I restarted the springboard and the fucking app is not listed there anymore! Yes, it is installed, but the four icon positions at the bottom of the iPhone are occupied by other third party apps now, including a fucking launcher utility that does not include Installer.app in it. Basically, to get to launch Installer.app I need to remove apps from the iPhone so it moves up the icon hierarchy. But without Installer.app I can’t remove anything anyway. It’s the chicken and the egg problem.

The only useful app I have installed on the iPhone is a Terminal, so if anyone knows how to either edit .plist to bring Installer.app up the ladder, or how to actually launch the damn thing from the terminal, it would be great. And no, I am not interested in the Summerboard, so don’t suggest it. I am ok with additional third party software but I do not trust software that actually modifies/replaces important and existing pieces of a given system.

Uh… it’s there, it’s just not listed first anymore, it’s in alphabetical order. Did you not have Summerboard installed? You can still get to the installer. Trust me, it works.

I know it’s there, there’s just no way to get to it. It just shows how stupid these developers are. There is a way to force yourself on a given icon position, but they didn’t take that measure, because they thought that everyone has the summerboard installed.

I got it back on the front screen by opening manually the Installer binary via the terminal, and then by removing ALL by two third party apps. Only then the damn thing showed up in the icon list.
