View Full Version : Categories 2.00b for firmware 2.0.x BETA TESTING

09-02-2008, 07:16 PM
Categories v2.00b for iPhone OS 2.0 is ready for testing if there are any takers. I would like to get it out there a bit before putting it on high volume Cydia. Therefore, I am going to put it here for now. Those that install it should make sure they are ok with beta software that has not even undergone much engineering level testing. This is for advanced users. In order to install this, you are expected to understand how to use SSH. If these instructions are complicated, you should wait a couple more days for the actual Cydia release which will be coming soon.
Install instructions:
1) Grab the deb file [/URL][URL]http://www.iphonemodding.com/forum/downloads.php?do=file&id=147&act=down (http://thebigboss.org/repofiles/cydia/debs2.0/categories_2.01b.deb).
2) SCP it onto your iphone in /tmp (or use wget)
3) SSH into your iPhone and type: dpkg -i /tmp/categories_2.01b.deb
Please read the instructions inside the help button carefully. They can also be viewed here (http://thebigboss.org/apps/CategoriesHelp.php).
Also, anyone that is doing some testing, if you find serious issues, please try to get me detailed reproduction steps. Please no reports that are “it doesn’t work” or such. I need to be able to reproduce the problem(s) in order to fix them.
Finally, the updater code for Cydia has not yet been written. So I will not be able to send out an update until at least late Monday (pacific time) if one is needed.

If all goes well, i may be upgrading :clapping:
