As a reminder, this is illegal! I do not encourage anyone to hack or crack iPhone games. Some developers spend quite some time working on them and really need the appreciation and encouragement they deserve. Buy it legally through App Store.
There are two types of files you can get for iPhone Apps. The ‘normal’ .app file, and the cracked IPA file. This information is available on Internet public domain, feel free to contact me for any concerns. We’ll discuss different scenarios’ and different ways to install cracked apps.
Install miPatch App from Cydia:
- Open Cydia in iPhone, Touch
- Click Manage, Sources , Edit, Add ‘http://cydia.hackulo.us‘ , Ok and wait for refresh.
- If You cannot see miPatch in the repo ( Sections ), restart your cydia (or your device) and have it update it’s sources.
- Just click it and let it install and simply double click them and sync them with your iPhone and enjoyy.
iTunes / IPA method
This requires replacing a framework file on your iPhone first, but then makes the installation of apps very easy (double click on the mac/pc):
How to install Cracked IPA’s:
- Using SSH, navigate to : /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/MobileInstallation.framework/"
Backup the file "MobileInstallation"
- Download this patched file – rapidshare.com/files/M … stallation/ – (2.0.x) and Copy the patched file over to "/System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/MobileInstallation.framework/" set permissions to 755
- Reboot your iPhone.
- To install the cracked .ipa apps, simply double click them and sync them with your iPhone and enjoyy
Direct method (SSH copy)
- Download the cracked game/app and extract the ApplicationName.app folder to your desktop.
- Copy ApplicationName.app into /Applications via SSH or SFTP and set it’s permissions to 755 (chmod 755 ApplicationName.app )
- Create a folder called ‘Documents’ in /var/mobile/ and set permissions to 777. (*only needs to be done once)
- Reboot your iPhone and enjoyy
Download and Install cracked ipas directly on ur phone
Appshare and Installous allow you to download ipas directly from your phone and install the applications directly on ur phone without needing a pc.
- Open Cydia, goto manage then click on sources, click on edit then add. Add the following source - http://cydia.hackulo.us tap on the source
- Download Installous and then Appshare.
NOTE: You SHOULD DELETE SAFARI DL PLUGIN IF U HAVE INTSTALLED, INSTALLOUS WILL REPLACE IT
- Open Appshare and click on appulo.us or the monkeysballs
- Begin searching for the IPA you want to download, tap on the app then scroll down till you see "download" tap on that.
- Choose any of the iphone-freindly links and follow the host directions to download
- Once download has hit 100%, hit installous at the bottom of appshare and once Insntallous opens up tap on the file you download, tap install
- Wait for it to install (this will take a few mins). Once the screen return to normal you can close installous
- In Springboard you will see you newly *free* Appstore app and enjoyy
Possible Problems and Errors:
- If you have problems with apps crashing then usually the solution is to first install any legit app(can be free), then install the cracked ones
- If you still have problems redo the steps again CAREFULLY
- The application ‘XXXXXXX’ cannot be opened
Fix: Reboot your iPhone or iPod
