How to install Installous on a Jailbroken iDevice

Please give respect to the developers who worked on the iOS applications/games and purchase the Apps.  Use of any pirated applications/games is illegal, so please purchase them from the AppStore.

For those who want to try installing Installous, here are the steps:

Once your iDevice (iPhone, iPod, iPad) is officially Jailbroken, you should see Cydia icon.

  1. Open Cydia
  2. Go to “Manage”… one of the five icon-options at the bottom of the screen.
  3. Go to “Sources”
  4. Go to “Edit” on the top right corner
  5. Go to “Add” on the top left corner (this will appear when “Edit” is clicked)
  6. Type in “http://cydia.hackulo.us” without the quotes
  7. Click “Add Source”
  8. Click “OK” when asked so it can retrieve the data from the newly added Source

If you did everything correctly up to this point, then you can go to “Search” icon on the bottom right, and then type in “Installous”.  Click on the App “Installous 4″… and then click the “Install” button on the top right.  Voila~  You now have Installous installed on your iDevice.

Must Have Cydia Apps for iPhone/iPad

Must have Cydia Apps for your jailbroken iDevices (not in any particular order):

  1. Infinidock
  2. Infinifolders
  3. Infiniboard
  4. SBSettings
  5. 5-Row Keyboard iOS4 (not working on iPad2 yet)
  6. RemoveBackground
  7. LastApp
  8. OpenNotifier

Mind you that some of these are already implemented on the new iOS 5.  However, it will be a while until it gets released… and more importantly, it will be a while until a new jailbreak for iOS 5 comes out!

Jailbreak for all iOS devices including iPad 2

Jailbreakme 3 is out and live.  This is a web-based Jailbreak for all your iOS devices, including iPad2. This means you won’t need to attach a USB cable to your computer, but rather just visit jailbreakme.com on your Safari (on your iDevice) to initiate the process.  I’ve personally tested it on an iPad2 running iOS 4.3.3, and it took no time at all.

Jailbreaking is simple and legal… however, it will void your warranty from Apple if you ever do need to take it in for support and they see that your iDevice has been jailbroken.  So, if you’re planning to do it, please know what you’re doing and the consequences that may follow.
