I have installed it successfully to an Ipad 2 CDMA (Verizon) but after I launched Cydia all of the sudden the sound is gone, no audio setting , volume will not go up or down neither from the side switch nor settings and also it seems that the ring works for some odd and strange reason but ONLY under settings, when trying the task bar and flipping to the left where usually the volume slide, light slide, the play, FFW, RWD, and lock screen would show, it will not show the volume circle to move. I have tried to restore to stock, update to latest iOS, it was working on 6.0.1 and its now updated to 6.1.2 but without jailbreak now the volume is not working, I also tried to jailbreak after restoring to stock and still no volume, but it did jailbreak with no errors. I think the driver for volume is gone missing, and its not HW because the ringtone still rings. You might have to get a patch to fix Volume driver issues on iPad 2 (CDMA). Please email me with assistance or if you need more info. Also I have tried it on 2 Win Laptops, one with 7 and 8. I also did a iPad2 wi-fi only and I haven't had any isues (iOS 6.0.1).

Installous is dead. There is no more Installous, so that's why you can't install it. Look around for alternatives.
