Download AppSync For iOS 5.0.1 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.

Earlier in the year we told you that AppSync was updated to support the iOS 5.0 firmware. With the released of the iOS 5.0.1 Untethered Jailbreak in the forms of RedSn0w 0.9.10b3, PwnageTool 5.0.1 and Corona 5.0.1 Untether numerous people were reporting errors with installing AppSync. If you experienced an error with installing AppSync, while being Jailbroken on the iOS 5.0.1 firmware then you will be glad to know that the latest version of RedSn0w has fixed errors with AppSync according a tweet by Apptrackr.

Thus, if you were experiencing errors while being Jailbroken on the iOS 5.0.1 firmware untethered, simply re-run RedSn0w o.9.10b3 over your existing Jailbreak (ensure you deselect the install Cydia option).

If you would like to install AppSync on the iOS 5.0.1 firmware to get cracked apps then you will need to install AppSync for iOS, which 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 5.0.1 firmware using Appsync and Installous.

Install iOS 5.0.1 Cracked Apps

Step 1: The first thing you will need to do is Jailbreak your iPhone or iPod Touch running the iOS 5.0.1 firmware untethered. If you would like help with this process go to the How To Jailbreak Section.

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:

After typing the source above tap the Add Source button.

Step 4: With the hackulous source now added into Cydia go into the hackulous source by tapping on it and you should see AppSync for iOS 5.0+. Install AppSync for iOS 5.0+ and then restart your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad. After it has restart, launch Cydia again and install Installous for iOS 5.0.1 (Installous 4)  to your iDevice.

Congratulations! You have just installed AppSync and Installous to install cracked apps on the iOS 5.0.1 firmware. Additionally, you learned to fix AppSync errors on the iOS 5.0.1 firmware. If you have any further questions please leave them in the comments section below…

Note: does not support cracked applications. As it is our promise to report on everything to do with Jailbreaking, however, we have a responsibility to report on such news. If you followed this guide please keep in mind installing crack applications are illegal.

  • enlongatedqueef

    go into your itunes setting and check the  box for manually update apps and music.

  • Moe

    it does work you narb. dont click respring after installation finished then just  press power until you see slide to power off and then simply power on then you can download apps from apptrackr and put them in itunes and simply sync.

  • io

    where do i do that.i have the same problem….pls help

  • Stook12

    Every time I install installous it makes all my apps open in the top left corner of my screen. I followed these instructions exactly and it happened every time. Once I uninstalled it my apps went back to normal. There must be a conflict with another one of my apps. So for now no installous for me.

    I’ve been using Appsync since 4.0 and I love it, very useful for trying apps and even getting some games that are ridiculously over-priced (Square Enix Games). I recently decided to just uninstall Appsync and it’s MobileSubstrate dependencies since it seems to put a toll on my battery life, taking away maybe even almost an hour off my life. But your practicing piracy so it won’t be perfect…

  • Yorch_M

  • nunz

    Thank you so much for saving my day. I didn’t remember that we have to install AppSync in order to install cracked apps. Of course. After I followed the steps above, cracked apps now install without an issue. ^_^

  • brute force

    everything worked and looks great. but i see my installous icon but why do i not see the appsynch icon. and what does each of these programs do or what are each responsible for. do they both do the same thing?

  • Osinet

    Followed your directions, step by step and now have a working installous…
    You saved the day,

  • Meeeee

    Installous is great but now apps are getting your idevices udid and showing you a message saying if you buy this in the next 3 days there wont be trouble but ifvnot then there will be! So beware about what you download now!!!

  • Del

    Before you sync your apps, make sure you select “File” at top left in iTunes, and then “Transfer purchases from…”. Now you can sync your apps and iTunes won’t remove them. Also, make sure you have the latest “AppSync” installed on your jailbroken device.

  • Gustavo

  • Ihodgson

    I have jb for 5.1.1 plus Appsync and installous installed. I have downloaded some apps (ipa files) and copied them to itunes Mymusic/itunes/itunesmedia/Mobile Applications folder along with other files from the appstore. BUT, when I sync the ipad with itunes the new files are not installed. What I have to do is run the ipa file which runs itunes and then installs OK. However I have to this for each ipa file (ie quit itunes then run the next ipa file).
    Is this right? From what I have read the sync should do it all.

  • Saurav
