A number of users have reported an inability to install Summerboard after jailbreaking firmware 1.1.4. With Summerboard being one of the most popular third party applications for the iPhone, many iPhone owners will be glad to hear a solution is at hand.
An iPhoneFAQ reader, Cherubsan, sent in the following instructions which allow those running jailbroken 1.1.4 to install Summerboard via Installer.app. As with all instructions related to jailbroken or unlocked iPhones, proceed at your own risk:
2. Refresh sources in Installer
3. Navigate to Tweaks (1.1.4)
4. Install 1.1.4 Summerboard Patch
5. Install Summerboard
6. Uninstall 1.1.4 Summerboard Patch
Reportedly the patch just tells Installer that your firmware version is 1.1.4 instead of 1.1.3 so that Installer will not refuse to install Summerboard. As 1.1.4 is a bugfix release, no known compatibility issues with Summerboard for 1.1.3 are expected.If you have success or a lackthereof when using this workaround, please post your experiences here.
