ScummVM manual install on firmware 3.0 without Cydia or wifi

Post by DSpider » Sat Jul 04, 2009 10:16 am

Is there a way to do a manual install - as in without using Cydia or a wifi connection ? Maybe using a tool like DiskAid to access the root of the device and manually copy the folders to /Applications

From the "scummvm-0.13.1-iphone.deb" package, ScummVM.app is pretty much obvious where it goes but what about those ._control and control files ?


PS: I also hear v0.13.1 isn't compatible with firmware 3.0 (at this time)... Is it true ?

i just installed the deb file via terminal.app
then i did a respring to restart the springboard.
after that scummvm is there, it loads and then i pop up back to the springboard. so yeah i assume the scummvm-0.13.1-iphone.deb isn't working on OS 3.0


(running os 3.0 on a 3gs over here)

Ummm, 3GS ? :roll: You can't jailbreak it until the redsn0w developers decide to release the software. Or maybe you're on the dev team and already have it jailbroken ?

you're not up to date mate ;)


http://iphonejtag.blogspot.com/ is the blog of geohot.
the jailbreak works like a charm, just check any of your iphone news pages that post news about that kind of stuff :P


edit: forgot to mention, the manual install didn't worked out, so i added the source in cydia and reinstalled scummvm from there, its a newer version. testet with monkey 2, running good so far, uploading indy 4 talkie in a few to test

Yes, as I wrote here, 0.13.1 isn't compatible with firmware 3.0

Use this one: http://urbanfanatics.com/cydia/scummvm- ... iphone.deb

That's the current Cydia version. Install it using "dpkg -i filename" on the phone.
