Hi, i have a jailbroken 1.1.3 iPhone, and for the last few day it's been working great, but starting last night whenever I try to install, uninstall or update I get "main script execution failed!". So since last night i've been trying to figure out how to fix it, the solution i've found is run SSH on terminal or WinSCP to update installer but whenever try to log into WinSCP it won't let me (I used my IP address, "root" and "alpine" to login) since i didn't install the app OpenSSH on installer before i got the error, so it won't let me connect. So i'm lost now and wondering if anyone here can help me with like a way around it or an alternative with the exception of restoring my iPhone to new? thx..

close your Installer.app by hold HOME button at 6 sec.
disable Auto-Lock
than start Installer.app and install BSD Subsystem 2.0
it near 90% that "main script execution failed!" is disappear

unfortunately if you didn't install OpenSSH, Terminal, or BSD subsystems, then you have no other choice but to do a full restore through iTunes.
