You can install CYDIA but you cant put any application on it? I got 3G 32gig.did I do any thing wrong?
Toni - June 11, 2010 at 11:33am
Before you install any hacked apps, you have to install AppSync 3.1 from Cydia.
Toni - June 7, 2010 at 1:23pm
Would this work for the new model of Ipod touch? I just rencently bought one 32gigs at Best Buy and wondering if this will work. Thank you very much!

Great job.. Little trouble at first because the file didnt download properly and wouldnt open because of that.. So make sure its 4.4mb :) Awesome work, very, very fast jailbreak.. quickest ive ever seen :)

After JB, some "Homescreen Icons" (Music, Photo, Video...) disappeared! I did try, settings, general, reset homescreen, but these icons won not come back.
Elangelito - May 15, 2010 at 7:05pm
I have this same issue, my icons just disappeared like magic after jailbreaking!!!

All Just want to clarify something regarding Cydia / installeous... If we download an cracked app via Installeous and install it on our ipod touch / iphone and then we do a normal synch via itunes. Will we get 'charged' (invoiced) by itunes / Apple when they 'see' - 'recognised' these cracked apps on our iphone / ipod Touch that we haven't downloaded officially via the itune store ? Please advise ? Alternatively is it best not to synch these cracked apps via itunes ? Thanks
Minh - May 7, 2010 at 7:01pm
Don't worry over the apps. Itunes would recognise them cracked apps and assumed you paid for them. Just drag to the 'Apps' section in your iTunes and sync normally and it should work fine.

Create an iTunes acc without a credit card and then sync.
jhebay - June 1, 2010 at 5:25pm
how can i create an acount without credit???can you teach me???
rush2112 - July 31, 2010 at 11:21pm
I did the spirit JB on my iphone (3.1.3) and won't sync apps thats says are patched using itunes. I don't know of any other way to install on phone.
Jared - May 3, 2010 at 4:04pm
If I am JBed with 3.1.2, is there any reason for me to update to 3.1.3 and use this?
Victory144 - May 5, 2010 at 9:15pm
@Jared wrote.... This one is untethered method.... (When restart the device, well still have the jailbreak activated)...
Tigras - May 17, 2010 at 10:58am
Yeah, you can turn on and off your iPhone. Also, I need some help with this. All my homescreen icons, except for youtube, well, they kinda disappeared after the jailbreak. How do I get 'em back? An iPhone without a phone or internet app is kinda useless IMO. :x
leon - May 3, 2010 at 2:00pm
