The bittorrent client for iOS is back from the dead and functional. Back in the day, if you wanted to download a torrent file on to your iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad, you would use the jailbreak tweak iTransmission. But, as time passed, the developers stopped supporting the tweak and eventually it was no longer available for newer iOS devices and firmwares.
A jailbreak developer who goes by the name of iOShomebrew has restarted the iTransmission project and has made an alpha version available on the Cydia Store. iTransmission 2 is exactly the same as the first version (iTransmission) and can be used to download torrents on to your iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad. It works on the iOS 5 firmware and also on the latest iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad’s.
Remember that iTransmission 2 is still in alpha, so there may be certain bugs and issues. This jailbreak tweak is available for free in the BigBoss repository on Cydia. Try it out and let us know if it worked for you in the comments.
Iphone 4,… 5.0.1, itransmisson 1 worked just fine.:) uninstalled it and installed itransmission 2. havent tried it out yet. Looks of it, it does not look any better. u cannot manually add nor choose to were u want your files saved.
It’s crashing like a bitch
how it can run on the background becouse when use another application itranssmision 2 won’t download it download only when it is opend
Itransmision 2 downloads files waaaay faster… When used with ifile works like a charm
After using IT2 for about a week.. It downloads torrents way faster then IT1, my laptop, and my PC..It has now become my #1 BitTorrent client..It is missing a few features and has a few bugs…but I’m hoping with future updates those bugs with get squashed.
Here’s how I use it:
I use iTransmission 2to download my files and once they’re completed I use iFile to move them to my CineXplayer/MusicPlayer/etc
If you want iTransmission 2 to download files in backround try the tweak called “backrounder” and you’ll be able to multitask without pausing your downloads.
How to add torrents to itransmission 2 ?
Just crashes on startup
Rene Orna2897 says
When installl is press, showing conflict with ipad, should i install t anyway? Please advise. What will happen if there is a conflict?
if you’re an ios 5 user and want to use itransmission 1 instead do the following
1 ) add xsellize source
2 ) search for appsync 5
3 ) make sure its 1.0.2
4 ) install and enjoy your itransmission with very good quality even better than 2
@guest you cydia tweak called backgrounder to keep any app you want active while you use other apps. If you want itransmission to download when your idevice is sleeping then use insomnia tweak called cydia

Where does itransmission save to by default on the iPad? I’m trying to use iFile to transfer my downloads to their usable folders as you said but I can’t find the files… :(
thx for the info. I have a question I chose the torrent and opened it through “Edownloader” and then i can manage the torrent through ” i transmission”. I wanted to ask which is better to use “i files ” or “E downloader” considering e downloader is free through installous.
lol crashing like a bitch :D
