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.
