Download AppSync For iOS 5 To Install Cracked Apps On iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad

WARNING: Cracked applications are illegal. The whole premise behind cracked applications is if you would like to test an application before purchasing it from the Apple AppStore. It is expected that after you download cracked apps to your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad running the iOS 5 firmware that you either delete the app after testing it or purchase it from the AppStore.

AppSync is an application that allows you to sync and install cracked AppStore applications to your iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. AppSync has recently been updated for the iOS 5 firmware and this means you can install cracked apps to your iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad running the iOS 5 firmware. For those of you who are curious, AppSync works by patching the MobileInstallation file on the iOS 5 firmware which is need to install .ipa files (AppStore Apps) without going through iTunes.

cracked apps iOS 5 and AppSync iOS 5

AppSync for iOS 5 is only available through an external repository that must be added through Cydia. In this how to guide you will learn how to install cracked applications to your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad running the iOS 5 firmware using Appsync and Installous.

Step 2) – After you ensure you are Jailbroken you must launched Cydia, tap the Manage Tab, tap the Sources section and finally tap the Edit button in the top right hand corner of the screen.

Step 3) – You should now see an Add Button appear in the top left corner of the screen. Tap the Add button now and type in the following source:

    HELP !! I did an install for appsync 5.0+ on 3GS but something awful happen…i was told to reboots device and it keep showing the Apple boots logo nothing has change after waiting for 5-10 minutes…what should i do…??? 

  • Me


    i use installous and appsync since ios 3.0, for me the only way that syncing cracked apps is working WAS:

    -installed installous and appsync
    -in installous it has to be enabled “itunes Sync”
    -after installed a cracked app and syncing with itunes u have to answer the popup-question in itunes “itunes has found purchased apps…blabla” with “transfer purchases” WITHOUT SETTING the mark on “dont ask again” cause if u set the mark, the next time syncing it would not work and deletes the cracked app.

    This is how it worked for me till now , please comment if somebody can tell me to do it better.

    NOW, since IOS5 and Appsync 5.0+ and installous 4.4.2 it isnt syncing that way.

    -the only way it worked for me is:

    -BEFORE syncing i have to right click on my device in itunes and say “transfer purchases”
    -then i can sync my device.

    Is this really the only way its working on ios5???

  • Edgar242

    Same thing happen to me, I have tryed booting up several times using redsn0w but it keeps showing the apple logo.  I have restored 4 times already.  Is there a specific file I should use?

  • Edward_arabian0277

    i have the same problem

  • Alrbeei

    It’s working fine,

  • Rishavhappy

    after installing installous whenever i restart my ipod touch 4g my ipod only shows me the apple logo and it does not start. what should i do????

  • Rahulg

    do a teetered reboot , everything will be alright

  • Wenly_7

    I had my jailbreak for ios 4 and I tried to upgrade to ios 5, I download the latest red snow (0.9.9b6) and try to jailbreak my iTouch but unchecking the Install Cydia option because I already have one.

    After that I tried to install AppSync for iOS 5.0+ on Cydia but when I want to install it, it says “The requested modifications cannot be applied due to required dependencies or conflicts that cannot be automatically found or fixed”
    And I can only click the ‘continue queueing’ option. Anyone have the some problem or some advices?

  • Jakecool84

    Thx soooo much i was having this problem 2 but i couldn’t sync my apps, now i know how!!!!! :D

  • locomambo

    appsync 5+ not working for me i did tertereh reboot i delete and reinstall appsyn and installous and all that and i cant sync with that 

  • MAX

    HUGE problem…
    I’ve got an i-pod 4G, done jail brake, installed sydia, installous and as a part of it installed appsync. YET, everytime I sync my device it keeps erasing the installous apps…

    I’ve tryed EVERYTHING, checked and unchecked the “iTunes Sync” on the installous settings, tryed to reinstall both the installous and the appsync separatly and it keeps erasing the apps anyway…


  • Ben

    um just wondering if you were trying to sync your apps with itunes. Cause if you are not trying to sync apps with itune this stopped my apps from being deleted of the phone/ipod: TURN OFF the sync with itunes feature.

  • sadSid!

    my i phone 4 got updated to iso5, i was using it for a wile with the turbo sim, is there any ways i can get to use it again ! sad Sid !

  • E-side

    PLEASE somebody answer me: if i install appsync on my phone, that i put the iblacklist (non apple application) ipa file in itunes… if i update my iphone, i will lose the jailbreak (this ok it’s normal), but will i refind the app iBlacklist on my iphone, eventhough the phone will not be jailbroken anymore ???

  • Asd

    Load your ipsw file and then click on just boot

  • Xenezies

    I’m using a 4G iPod and it says it’s not available 

  • guest4167

    Everyone all you have to do are these simple steps
    1st step is to open up redsnow>extras>select the device restore file
    2nd step after you pick the file select just boot
    everything will be fine  if you see the pineapple logo or something else other than the apple logo

  • Bojan Djordjevic

    you should use redsnow and click “Just boot” while using your .ipsw for your current build. Jailbroken iOS5 is only tethered, which means that you need usb connected to your phone and do the things that I mentioned above.

  • Bojan Djordjevic

    I have the same problem, I think it’s because my iOS is 5.0.1, but I am not sure… It will be fixed, don’t worry

  • Atom246

    have an ipod touch 4g ios 5.0.1, used 5.0 ipsw. Have installous and appsync 5.0. i went to itunes and i hit transfer purchases, and nothing happened. itunessync is on in installous. cant seem to see the problem. Any help would be nice

  • Looneytune65

    all you have to do is after you install it click transfer purchases and itl save them

  • Bojan Djordjevic

    I would love it to be that easy, but he simply deletes them :/

  • Bradley

    Whenever i transfer purchases from my iPhone(The cracked apps) to itunes then try to sync the apps from iTunes to my non jail-broken itouch it says “Was not able to install (insert name here)” is there a way I can put cracked apps from a jailbroken iphone to a non-jailbroken itouch? Both are 3g and iOS 5.

  • Aleš Kroutil

    If you are writing your password to command line is doesn’t show up. You just have to write it correctly and it’s done.

  • Sksa2005

    Same here password just did not show..only reflect as ?

  • Anthony

    here’s what you do. when you open itunes, right click your device (ipod 4G) and select ‘Transfer Purchases’. Now that you have transferred them to iTunes they will sync and not be deleted from the device. make sure you do this every time before syncing
