Fix: Hash Sum Mismatch Cydia Error While Installing Installous 5

Hash Sum MismatchEarlier we talked about Installous 5, which has one of the major feature now (Download files via torrent), but many users faced issues while installing Installous 5. Earlier, an update was not showing in my jailbroken iPhone 4 and later when Installous 5 update was visible, on Installing I was getting this error : Hash sum mismatch error. Here are some of the workaround to fix this issue.

2 Ways to fix Hash sum Mismatch error in Cydia:

If you getting this error for the first time, I suggest you to retry or try downloading any other app in Cydia and see if it works. Else, here are some of the possible solutions which you can try.

Reboot:

This is the basic step and this worked fine for me. I closed all the apps, restarted my iPhone and tried updating to Installous5 and it worked for me. Even in forums, many users reported the same and it’s working for them without any issue.

Use Alternate source:

Usually we use http://cydia.hackulo.us to install Installous, but you can also try alternate cydia sources like SinfuliPhonerepo. here is the repo address: http://sinfuliphonerepo.com

simply go to Cydia > Sources > Edit > Add and add the following source and then search Installous 5 under it, and install. I tried this method in iPad 2, and it worked for me.

Reinstall Installous:

Another method is to delete installous and remove it’s source and re-add it. This is one method, which I have not tried but many users reported it worked for them.

I tried the first 2 fix for fixing Hash sum error in Cydia and it worked for me. Last but not the least, if nothing works for you: You can start from scratch by re-jailbreaking your phone and installing Installous on fresh device.  Though, I suggest to use this only, when nothing works for you.

Here are few more fixes, which are suggested by users in forum:

Reset Network settings:

You can try resetting your network settings in iPhone or iPad and it may work. Also, reboot your modem once.

Reload Cydia:

On the cydia homepage, reload it to update it and then try and see is you still getting “hash sum mismatch error“.

I tried the torrent feature and for now, there are very few apps with magnet link available, but in coming days we can expect way more. Anyways, do let me know which solution worked for you and if any of these worked (It should), don’t forget to share this post on Facebook and Google plus.

How to Install Celeste Bluetooth File Transfer from Cydia

This is a guest post by Aashish. If you would like to write for CallingAllGeeks, check our guest posting guidelines.

Earlier we shared a complete feature list of Celeste Bluetooth file transfer app for iPhone. This app uses OBEX bluetooth transfer so you can communicate with almost all Bluetooth enabled device.

The only thing missing on your Apple device was Bluetooth file transfer and finally it has arrived thanks to cocoanutapps. Of course your device must be jailbroken to get Celeste from Cydia. Celeste was launched a few weeks ago for 7.99$ (3-day introductory price) which is now available at a price of 9.99$.  Now that price is too high for an app with a few bugs which just lets you transfer files over bluetooth.

So here is a solution to get Celeste working on your apple device free of cost. Note- This works only for jailbroken devices on iOS 4.2.1. You will also need sbsettings which can be found in Cydia.

Installing Celeste from Cydia:

1. Go to cydia, manage, sources, edit, add: http://repo.biteyourapple.net

2. Wait for a few seconds and then click on return to cydia. Now under the Manage Tab->Sources- you will find BiteYourApple. Open it and search for Celeste Bluetooth File Sharing, install it. Once installation is complete, click on the option Restart Springboard.

3. Now you will get an error: activation failed. Switch off 3G, Data & wi-fi and restart the springboard. Now activate 3G, data & Wi-fi and restart springboard. Now you will get a message License Activated.

4. That’s it done! Now slide on the status bar to open Sbsettings and click on Celeste when you want to tranfer files. You don’t have to activate bluetooth from settings.

You will find a option to send via bluetooth on images and to transfer music, click on the file for 2sec and you will get the option to send.

And another great thing is that with Celeste comes free Gremlin. Gremlin is the app which will automatically show the images received via bluetooth in camera roll and music in iPod. So whenever you complete receiving a file, you will find a ‘G’ symbol coming on status bar. And these files will automatically sync to itunes whenever you connect it to your PC.

Do let us know if you face any issue with Cydia or installing Celeste from Cydia.

This is my 1st post ever so sorry for any mistakes.
