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 6 firmware that you either delete the app after testing it or purchase it from the App Store.
Perhaps the number one question a lot of people are wondering after the release of the iOS 6.x Untethered Jailbreak is how do you install cracked apps on the iOS 6.0, iOS 6.0.1, iOS 6.0.2 or iOS 6.1 firmware. Well, the answer to this question is the same as it has always been, you will first need to install AppSync. Essentially, what AppSync allows you to do is run cracked App Store applications on your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad. Without AppSync cracked applications will not run.
You used to be able to download and install AppSync from one repo and then just install Installous and be on your way to enjoying cracked applications on your device. The problem is however, Installous has shutdown and AppSync for iOS 6 is a little bit harder to find. No to worry however, you can still get cracked apps on iOS 6.x and in this tutorial we will show you how to do just this.
How To Install AppSync On iOS 6.x
Perquisite: Your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad must be Jailbroken on iOS 6.0, iOS 6.0.1, iOS 6.0.2 or iOS 6.1 before proceeding with this tutorial. For a guide on How To Jailbreak iOS 6.x click here.
Step 1) - The first thing to get cracked apps on your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad Jailbroken on iOS 6.x is to install AppSync. In order to do this you will need launch Cydia, tap the Manage Tab, tap the Sources section and finally tap the Edit button in the top right corner of the screen. 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:
Note: A lot of repositories are currently under a lot of strain, so if you are having troubles adding the repository above you can try one of these alternatives.
Step 2) - Once you have added one of the repos listed above you will need to search for AppSync. Depending on the repo you added AppSync will be called something slightly different, but look for something along the lines of “AppSync for iOS 6.x“. As long as you see somewhere either in the title mentioning iOS 6 or in the description you can go ahead and install it.
Step 3) - Once AppSync has installed reboot your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad by holding down the power button until you see “slide to power off”. After rebooting, download a free application from the App Store and ensure the app launches without any issues. If it doesn’t launch then this is likely not a working version of AppSync and it will need to be uninstalled by launching Cydia, going into the Manage tab, followed by Packages, finding AppSync and uninstalling it.
Step 4) - As long as the free application you downloaded did launch, you are good to go.
With AppSync installed it means cracked applications can now run on your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad.
