How To Get Cracked App Store Apps On iOS 5.1.1 / iOS 5.1 Using AppSync, Installous

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 App Store. 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 App Store.

Apple released the iOS 5.1.1 firmware recently and for those of you who have updated and jailbroke your iOS device tethered running iOS 5.1.1 with RedSn0w 0.9.10b8b, you are probably wondering if you can install cracked apps. The answer to this question is yes, and it simply requires adding a 3rd party repository, followed by installing a couple of Cydia packages.

The first package you must install is called AppSync, which will allow cracked applications to run on your iOS device. The second package required to install cracked apps on your Jailbroken iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad is Installous. For those that would like a helping hand installing cracked apps to their iOS device you will be glad to know in this how to guide you will learn how to install cracked apps on an iOS device running the iOS 5.1.1 or iOS 5.1 firmware (also supports iOS 5.0.1 and iOS 5.0).

Install Cracked Apps On iOS 5.1.1 Or iOS 5.1

Step 1) – The first thing you will need to do is Jailbreak your iPhone or iPod Touch running the iOS 5.1.1 or iOS 5.1 firmware tethered. 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 launch Cydia, tap the Manage Tab, tap the Sources section and finally tap the Edit button in the top right 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:

Install Cracked Apps iOS 5.1.1

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.

Install Cracked Apps iOS 5.1.1

After it has restart, launch Cydia again and install Installous for iOS 5.1.1 (Installous 4) to your iOS device.

    I really wish you wouldn’t have posted this. It’s the only reason why jailbreaking is in jeopardy of becoming illegal altogether

  2. “WARNING: Cracked applications are illegal.”  But here’s how to get them anyway.  This is a bogus disclaimer on two accounts.
    1. Using cracked apps as trialware does not make them legal.
    2. Methamphetamine is illegal, but here’s how to make it anyway.  Do you see a problem with this statement?

  3. please take this down

  4. Yeah, I’d go ahead and delete this article.

    …  I don’t know why I bookmarked this site *facepalm*

  7. FuckApple says:

    i been using this since ages haha why did someone post it now?

  8. Michael Schnier says:

    While I agree that there are very few whitehat reasons for using Installous, I can think of two justifications: 1) for installing apps which would be available for free outside your country but are utterly unavailable within it, and 2) if Apple pulls an app that is embarrassing to its interests from its store (such as Phone Story).

  9. shovel shit says:

    maybe just release 5.1 untethered jailbreak!

  10. take this down….it is better if it does not get too popular.

  11. the main reason apple is trying to stop jailbreak is because of what this article describes. We don’t want this to become mainstream

  12. BlueRaider says:

    And this is exactly why i0n1c refuses to release his jailbreak, what a bunch of a$$hats at ijailbreak. I honestly wish installous would die! It’s the main reason all these newbs are getting into jailbreaking  and it’s ruining the scene.

  13. Mike Hunt says:
