SMF will not delete the folder, but your host might be deleting it because it's a security hazard (world writable). You never make a directory 777 until you have tried 755 and then 775 without success.

You're best to contact your friend about the problem with the mods. If they work fine for most people and on your local sever. Then it's probably a server related problem and there's not much we can do about that.

If at first you don't succeed, use a bigger hammer. If that fails, read the manual.

Probably. When hooks are used there's can be no file edits. At least in the case of this one there aren't any.

Hi, welcome to SMF. :)

In the Packages folder, create a new folder named temp and chmod it to 777. That should fix that.

I hope. ???

I did this for the recent 2.0.3 security patch and it fixed my "You cannot download or install new packages because the Packages directory or one of the files in it are not writable!" error.  I was able to successfully install the patch after following Kays' instructions of creating the 'temp' folder, and CHMOD to 777.

Hope this helps others.
