    I installed Installous, downloaded games & apps from there and played them. Everything was working very fine I was very happy but the next day when I connected my iphone4 to iTunes it started downloading all those software from iTunes store, afraid of being charged I immediately disconnected my phone as I did it iTunes gave a massage saying “All purchased software will be down loaded next time when the phone will be connected”.
    Can anyone tell me will I be charged for these software or its a normal procedure.

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 2 months ago

      Ofcourse you will not be charged. Its only syncing the newly found apps from your iPhone across to your iTunes library. Its the same process that happens when iTunes syncs your music / videos.

    after downloading when i install the dame the error appers that invalid ipa now whats the reason for it nd what can i do now:(

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 3 months ago

      You will get the answer for your query from my previous reply. Don’t use Installous. Instead, just download the IPAs separately onto your PC & sync them back to your device via iTunes itself.

    I cannot install any app on installous , it says ipa file failed n iz nt installed :(
    Pls help

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 4 months ago

      Make sure that the IPA that you have downloaded is from a well known source & that it also supports your iDevice. Download your IPAs from reliable sources like http://apptrackr.org.

    Hi I have installed installous wen going into catagories,games and go to downlod a lot of files come up wen I click on a file another page pops up and tells u speed of dload etc….
    Is that where I dload the app from or not? And all the files previous r they all by different people who have cracked the app? Please help to explain.

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 5 months ago

      Yes, you need to download your files exactly from there. Installous hosts cracked IPA’s that are added by different users.

    iPhone4Jailbreak3 years, 6 months ago

    I get the same Socket is not Connected every time though.
    I am connected to WiFi and everything but it’s only at that certain moment when I confirm the Installous download that the WiFi goes down. What do I do?

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 6 months ago

      There could be some issues with the Wi-Fi connection that your using. Try a different network connection (your friend’s maybe). Downloads should work just fine unless there is some error generated by the server itself. Try downloading Installous after a brief period of time, say like 2 hours, to see if you socket gets dropped.

    Hello,

    I am having trouble during install the Installous 4. I kept getting error message saying POXIS : Socket not connected.

    I already jailbreak my iphone 4 but there is a message on top of the cydia screen saying “The Device is in the Pending TSS queue”

    I already http://cydia.hackulo.us add in the sources and installed the AppSync for 4.0.

    Appreciate your help on this. Thanks a lot!

    •  
      Wolverine3 years, 8 months ago

      POXIS: Socket not connected occurs if your internet or Wifi goes down while Cydia is downloading the DEB file.
      The Device is in the Pending TSS queue is not an error. It means request to save your SHSH blobs on Cydia has been received and you can soon see all of your SHSH blobs on Cydia homepage!

    •

      You are downloading apps from App Store. After installing Installous, you must use Installous to download and install apps. It will not ask for any username or password.

      After download, you need to install the app. Go to “Downloads” section of Installous and click on the app to install it.

    hey, me again =.=
    why i dowload app at instalous, always cant complete and automatically close instalous without a msg? Izzit need to install other program to run?

    •  
      Wolverine4 years, 2 months ago

      You must install AppSync 4.x.x as well. If its already installed, then the Installous must have not installed correctly.

      •  
        kenny4 years, 2 months ago

        Yes, i already installed AppSync 4.1
        If the Installous have not installed correctly, what should i do? Remove then reinstall?

        •  
          Wolverine4 years, 2 months ago

          Yes try re-installing it. I have my iPhone 3G on iOS 4.1 jailbreaked with PwnageTool and i have no issues in using Installous =)
