Installous Alternatives To Download Cracked Apps on Your iOS Device

It was big news last year when Hackulous shut down its service. The repository hosts the major iOS piracy app, Installous and it bothered a lot of users who have jailbroken their devices. That is because a lot of them jailbreak their iOS devices just to get cracked (free) apps.

However, there is nothing much to worry. Just when you thought jailbreaking is dead, it is not.

Aside from the fact that the Evaders recently released the iOS 6 untethered jailbreak tool called evasi0n, there still are alternatives for Installous that you can use to download those cracked apps.

Here is how you can get them.

1. First of all you need to make sure you are jailbroken. Go to Cydia > Manage > Sources. Tap Edit on the upper right corner and add this repository:

enter repocydia repository in sources

2. Go back to your list of Sources on Cydia. Since Repocydia hosts all of these apps, just open the recently added Repocydia repository.

3. You need to download 5 things from the repo:

vShare, AppCake, IPASTORE, HiPStore Apps on Home Screen

The 4 installous alternatives
1. vShare
2. AppCake
3. IPAStore
4. HipStore


App Sync for iOS 6 on Repo Cydia

5. AppSync for iOS 6 (this will make you sync the cracked apps you've downloaded to the iTunes on your computer.)

By the way, vShare is the most preferred app by many. However, I personally have never tried using the 4 of them to download my cracked apps. For now, I am good with all the official apps I download from the App Store. But, I will still test these apps in the coming days.

Another app I haven't mentioned in this post is Zeusmos. I only discovered the app a few weeks after I published this. You might also want to try that too. 

This post is dedicated to those of you who have been wanting to download cracked apps again. Since I've been getting a lot of questions from you, this is it! Alternatively, if you are jailbroken and just want to download paid apps from the App Store, you may check this guide.

Happy downloading and long live jailbreaking!
