Not supported for IOS 4
Very complicated explanations
Mine downloaded all the way buy I can’t seem to open it and don’t know if I have to open outside safari or not
Is simple enough to use… Good guide :)
You don’t open through safari. You download a “Ifile” manager (I use Myfile). Then simply go to the location your download is saved. Mine is var>download> .torrent
Now you will probably need a app that allows you to play movie files other than mp4. I use “Goodplayer” which works okay however there are free options available through Cydia.
Then simply paste the files in the document folder of the app (will require a little fiddling to find the correct location for the app your using).
Then open the app and start enjoying :)
Sir mine stay 0% try already all the torrents site i know…
how to tranfer them to pc???????????
Stuck at zero too, why are there no answers?
Change the download destination folder to tmp, that fixed it for me
Safari will not let me download torrents. I followed every instruction, downloaded the plugin, restarted my IPad. When I open up Safari and go to Pirate Bay, click the torrent it says, “site invalid.” I’m no computer expert … Please help.
This is retarded and doesn’t work. Don’t say it’s simple when you follow directions and the plugin doesn’t do jack shit. Really, jack shit. I guess I wasted my time.
Changed to tmp and fixed it for me too. Thx
