UPDATE 1: NOW METHOD 1 AND 2 BOTH ARE UP, METHOD 3 AND 4 WILL BE UP SOON!!
<<**ONLY METHOD 1 IS UP RIGHT NOW!! THE OTHER 3 WILL BE UP SOON!!**>>
In this tutorial I will be calling the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad as iOS Devices as they all run the iOS firmware to make the devices work. So when I say iOS devices, I actually mean the iPhone, iPod Touch and the iPad. These methods of installing apps will work on all the devices.
First off let me tell you, I am assuming that you have already jailbroken your device. All of the following will only work if you have a jailbroken iOS system and also if cydia is installed. Secondly, let me also tell you that I am doing this just for educational purposes. I for one think that its unfair for Apple to make us buy an app without a proper trial. The description may look all fancy on the app store, but when you buy and run the app, you will start to understand how crappy the app actually is. App developers sometimes really do over estimate their apps, sometimes they really are not worth the price!! IF YOU END UP LIKING THE GAME THEN PLEASE GO BUY THE GAMES FROM THE APP STORE!! THIS IS ONLY FOR EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES!! Also I wont be telling you where to get your cracked apps from. Type “download cracked app” or “cracked ipa” on google or any search engine and I am sure it will cough up more than enough sites where you can download cracked apps from. Choose the app that you want to install into your device from those sites and download the .ipa file to your computer. I will not be posting any links here to cracked apps, I am leaving the responsibility in finding them to you, I am just showing you how to install them after you get the cracked apps. Ok now that, that is over, on to the procedures!!
There are 4 different methods to do this (that I know of), choosing how you want to do it is upto you.
1. Using new version of iFunbox. (easy peezy lemon squeezy)
2. Using Installous. (easy)
2. Using vShare. (easy)
3. Access the iOS system files by connecting to a computer using the data cable. (relatively hard)
4. SSH the ipa to the iOS device. (hard)
Before I tell you each method in detail, you have to first do something to prepare your iOS device for any of these methods to work.
Preparing The iOS Device:
a) Open up “Cydia” on your iOS device.
b) Touch on “Manage”.
c) Touch on “Sources”.
d) Touch on “Edit”.
e) Touch on “Add”.
Type in http://cydia.hackulo.us and then touch on “Add Source” Type in http://sinfuliphonerepo.com and then touch on “Add Source”. This source also has the new AppSync for iOS 6 and greater (6.1, etc)
g) It will give a Source Warning page, just touch on “Add Anyway”. (don’t worry there is nothing dangerous, no need to wet your undies)
h) It will take you to a black terminal page telling its downloading packages, let it download. There MIGHT be some yellow and red writing saying “error” or “failed to fetch”, dont worry about those warnings, just ignore them!! At the end touch on “Return to Cydia”.
i) Then touch on “Manage”.
j) Now touch on “Sources”.
k) Now find “SiNfUl iPhone Repo” and touch on it. If you are running iOS 6.0 or above, just follow the same procedure!!
l) Go down the list and choose the appropriate version of Appsync according to the iOS version you are running on. That is, if you are running on iOS 3.1 then touch on Appsync for OS 3.1, if you are running iOS 3.2 then touch on Appsync for OS 3.2, if you are running iOS 4.0, 4.0.1, 4.0.2, 4.1, 4.2, 4.2.1, etc then touch on Appsync for 4.x+ and if you are running on 5.0, 5.0.1, 5.1.1, etc then touch Appsync for 5.x+ (you get the drill) . To find out your iOS version that is installed on your iOS device, go to Settings>General>About and next to “Version” it will tell you your iOS version. I chose Appsync for 5.x+ as I am running . If you are running iOS 6.0 or greater then choose “AppSync for iOS 4.x-6.x”.
FOR iOS 6.0 AND ABOVE
m) After touching on the appropriate Appsync version, touch on “Install” then “Confirm”, and again the terminal window will run telling that it is installing Appsync, then touch on “Restart SpringBoard”.
FOR iOS 6.0 AND ABOVE
n) Then exit out of Cydia and restart your iOS device.
Thats it, you have installed AppSync to your device without Hackulo 🙂 Ok now I shall go onto different methods fo installing a cracked app onto an iOS device. Make sure you have installed Appsync following the method mentioned above before you chose your method of battle with the cracked app.
Method 1: Using new version of iFunbox.
If you used either blackra1n or spirit, then iFunbox will not be able to access your iOS device, dont worry there is a cure, you just have to install afc2add from Cydia (GEEKS READ THIS, NOOBS SKIP THIS (if you dont know what a noob is then you probably are a noob so just skip this) ———-> afc2add will enable the afc2 service on your iOS device and there is no harm in starting because traditionally it does run on your non jailbroken devices, its just that the blackra1n and spirit jailbreaks stop the service to implement the jailbreak, only to implement the jailbreak, so after jailbreaking you can start it back up without any problems and without harming or losing your jailbreak in anyway) . I am going to assume that you used either the blackra1n or spirit to jailbreak your iOS device, so I am going to give you the remedy. If you are not sure what method you used to jailbreak your iOS device or used some other jailbreak or have no idea what I am talking about, then just go ahead and install the afc2add following the method given below, it wont do your iOS device any harm so just follow all the steps regardless. You only have to install afc2add only once, don’t install it every time you want to use iFunbox or want to install a cracked app, YOU ONLY HAVE TO INSTALL AFC2ADD ONCE!! If you have already installed afc2add before, then just jump onto step 5.
1. Open “Cydia” on your iOS device and then touch on “Search”.
2. On the search bar type in “afc2add” and touch on the “afc2add” search result.
3.Touch on “Install” and then on “Confirm”.
4. Cydia will install afc2add and then ask you to “Reboot Device”. Just touch it and wait for your iOS device to restart. That’s it, you have installed afc2add 🙂
5. Now click here and download iFunbox.
6. It will be a zip folder. Extract the zip file and you will end up getting the iFunbox program.
7. Download the cracked app that you want to install to your computer from the internet and copy it on the folder where you have iFunbox (you don’t have to move it to the folder where iFunbox is, it doesn’t matter, but to make it easier I just told you to do it, its upto you !)
8. Connect your iOS device to your computer.
9. Double click on iFunBox and start the program up!! Vrrooommmm vrrrrooommm feel the power lol!!
10. You will see a window like the one below.
11. Click on your device then click on “Install App”.
12. Browse to the folder where your cracked app is saved and choose the ipa file.
13. iFunbox will install the app to your device.
14. After installation, iFunbox will spit out whether the installation was successful or not, and iFunbox will go into idle indicating a successful install.
15. Now click on “Device Safe Removal” and then remove your iOS device by clicking it. iFunbox will un-mount your iOS device.
Now close iFunbox and go check your iOS device, voila the cracked app is installed 🙂 …..wwwwoooohhhoooooooo….well done!!
That’s the end of method 1.
Using Installous . Using vShare.
Ok for this method to work you of course need to have a jailbroken iOS device, and have cydia installed and of course appsync installed (see above on how to install appsync). Since Installous is no more, vShare is the best alternative for it. It works exactly the same. I shall guide you through it!
1. Open “Safari” on your device.
2. Now on the address bar, type the address http://v.appvv.com/en/ and on the page that opens, touch on “Download/Install vShare”.
3. You will get a message saying “api.appvv.com would like to install vshare 1.0.53(Jailbreak Need)”, when you get this message just touch on “Install” and the app will get installed onto your home screen as seen below.
4. Now touch on the vShare app and start that baby up…vrooooom vroooommmm!! When the app opens up, touch on the magnifying glass search icon on the top right hand corner of the page.
5. Now type out the name of the app you want to get, and when your app comes on the list touch on the “Install” icon next to it.
6. When the “Install” icon changes to the blue “Installing” icon, touch on the “Download” icon at the bottom bar of the app.
7. In this window you will be able to see the app download. After the app is downloaded, vShare will automatically install it. You will see a band on the top of vShare with the name of the app you downloaded with a tick next to it, that means the app was successfully installed onto your device.
8. Now one more step you have to do before you fiddle and fool around with the new app you just installed. You need to get rid of the downloaded ipa file (this wont delete the app you installed), if you don’t download the ipa file, it will just clog up your phone and use up space. Touch on the “Downloaded” tab on the screen.
9. Now you will see the ipa file of the app you downloaded. Touch on it and it will open up a menu, in that menu touch on “Delete”. That’s it you deleted the ipa file.
10. Now just press on the home button and enjoy your app….boooyea!!!
That do be the end of step 2!! Seeeee I told you that you don’t have to worry just cause Installous is no more!! There is ALWAYS a way…never fret!! 😛
