How to Fix Installous 4.4.1 Invalid IPA: Installation Failed Error on iOS 4.3.x?

Here is a quick tip for those who are getting Invalid IPA: Installation Failed error while installing cracked apps from Installous 4.4.1. To fix this error, all you need is to uninstall previous installations of AppSync and then re-install AppSync from Hackulous repo. To check if you have installed AppSync from a repo other than Hackulous, just follow this simple guide.

IMPORTANT UPDATE: Hackulous is now officially gone, so you won't be able to download Installous and AppSync from the repository anymore. As an alternative to Installous, you can download these Installous alternatives.

  1. Open Cydia on your jailbroken iDevice and tap on the Search tab at the bottom. Type AppSync in the search field and hit ths Search button. From the search results, you can see if you have any previous installations of AppSync. Just choose the one infront of which you see the ✓ sign.

Scroll down and tap on the Hackulo.us repo. Here you will see different versions of AppSync app. If you are on iOS 4.x.x, choose AppSync for 4.0+ and if you are on iOS 3.x.x, choose AppSync for OS 3.1.
  6. AppSync in Hackulous How to Fix Installous 4.4.1 Invalid IPA: Installation Failed Error on iOS 4.3.x?

    Just to add on ur advised above mentioned when I removed the Appsync as informed the Installous is also removed. I think u missed this part of job in guiding that when u remove appsync Installous also get removed and it needs to be re installed.

      Pramod3 years, 4 months ago

      If your still having issues with the Invalid IPAs, download your app from http://apptrackr.org/ instead onto your PC & sync it back to your iPT4G via iTunes. Make sure that you still have AppSync installed.

  •  
    Shola3 years, 4 months ago

    Hmm article doesn’t mention that u have to re-install Installous after, as an iphone newb that was a small ‘Arg’! moment when I realised it was gone, just go back into Cydia and re-install:) Also didn’t solve my ‘installation failed’ prob or my ‘download failed unexpected content’ thing.

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 4 months ago

      If Installous doesn’t work right, download the IPAs separately onto your desktop instead & sync them back to your iPhone via iTunes. Make sure that you still haven’t removed AppSync.

  •  
    Rob3 years, 4 months ago

    My installous is now gone! Followed directions exactly…even rebooting iPhone!

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 4 months ago

      Reinstall it from the Hackulo.us repo again if Installous isn’t marked in Cydia with a check mark.

    Hi

    I am trying to download big games from installous but it always say invalid ipa. I tried everything and still says invalid ipa. I even tried to download from apptrackr.org but its not syncing. I really need some help?

  •  
    mimie3 years, 4 months ago

    why does my hackulo.us doesnt have appsync for 4.0+? the source is cydia.hackulo.us right?
    Update: nevermind! i got it fixed already! i just installed installous from the hackulo.us and it installed appsync for 4.0+ automatically *i think. thanks! this web has been such a help!

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 4 months ago

      Yes, AppSync comes as an installable along with Installous. It can also be downloaded as a separate install from the same repo.

  •  
    Gustavo3 years, 4 months ago

    I’ve tried, but it did’t work… continue appearing fail in .IPA. I have a Ipad on 4.3.3 and I did everything that you said, but the problem continue. Do you Know what’s going on? How can I fix it?

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 4 months ago

      Well if it didn’t work for you, download the IPAs directly from http://apptrackr.org & then sync them back onto your iPad via iTunes instead.

    Sarah3 years, 4 months ago

    Oh I checked my iOS and it turns out I should have installed AppSync for 4.0+ (sorry I’m an iPhone noob lol) but I still have the same exact error that drove me to come here in the first place- it says Invalid IPA :(

  •  
    Sarah3 years, 4 months ago

    I followed the guide exactly but I’m stuck at trying to install AppSync for OS 3.1! It is giving me the notification that “The requested modifications cannot be applied due to required dependencies or conflicts that cannot be automatically found or fixed.” Can you please help me and tell me what to do?
    It is saying “Depends iOS Firmware = 3.1/ Depends iOS Firmware = 3.1.1, Depends iOS Firmware = 3.1.2/ Depends iOS Firmware = 3.1.3/ Depends iOS Firmware = 3.1.4?

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 4 months ago

      If your on an iOS version 3.x, you need to install the AppSync 3.0+ version & if your on an iOS version 4.x, the AppSync 4.0+ must be your choice.

    Hello I have a solution that helps w/o removing xsellize,i have the source and i figured this out:

    1. Find the appsyn you need (from hackulo repo)
    2. Install the appsyn before installous
    3. after appsyn is done,install installous
    4. It should only install installous and it should work now :]

      Download the IPA that you want from AppTrackr and sync it back into your iPhone. It much more easier than Installous itself.

      Download the IPA that you want from AppTrackr and sync it back into your iPhone. It much more easier than Installous itself. Don’t use Installous if you say that you have infact tried every trick in the book.

    hey thanks for the tips :)

    ipa thing is working but my installous is extremely slow, and i have good connection?

    any tips thanks ;)

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 5 months ago

      Are you using an iP3G? Because if that’s the case, they are pretty slow by default with iOS 4.2.1 itself. If your talking about the Installous’s in-app speed, not sure though why it would behave like that inspite of a good internet connection.

  •  
    Jessie3 years, 5 months ago

    Thanks for you solution:)
    However i dont know why my iphone doesnt work…
    When i tried to delet the old appsync, it said “trying to overwrite ‘/usr/bin/pathcsync’, which is also in package com.sinfuliphone.appsync40plus” and ” Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code(1)”…
    Is there other way to fix it…?
    Please help, Thanks!

      Have you followed the guide? You’ll need to uninstall & reinstall AppSync before you start with it.

    PharrGyi_Singapore3 years, 6 months ago

    Please try the following.. hope it helps..
    You can clear your cache or cookies in ‘Settings’, ‘Safari’

    If that doesn’t help, pls try the following…

    ‘Settings’, then ‘carrier’, unchecked ‘Automatic’,

    wait for a while to see all the available service providers just below ‘Automatic’ function, then choose ur? service provider manually.. e.g. AT&T, T-Mobile, SingTel, StarHub,etc.. then **’REBOOT’**(//##important##//*)..

    NOTE (important) : you may still need to switch between ‘Automatic’ and ‘Manual’ carrier mode since you may still encounter the same issue while you are in ‘Manual’ carrier mode. Just switch them vice versa..

    if you think your service provider’s 3G is not powerful enough, please try to install ‘My3G Cracked’ from SinfuliPhone.. It makes ur iphone thinks 3G as WiFi.. hv fun..

    I tried download AppSync 3.1 but it won’t download. It says “Note: The requested modifications cannot be applied due to required dependencies or conflicts that cannot be automatically found or fixed.” Please help D:

    •  
      Pramod3 years, 6 months ago

      This can happen because sometimes the iOS version your trying to install is different from your phone’s iOS. Can you also tell me what the dependencies are that is conflicting? It’ll show you a complete list of details in the same page where it shows the error. Make sure your choosing the 4.x Installous package to download on your 4.x iOS. Good luck. :)

    Hi, my ipod touch have been adding so weird. I cant even add hackulo.us without getting errors. The source will appear as added but I don’t think all the files were downloaded. For example, I don’t see AppSync 4.0, I only see appsync for OS 3.1 and AppSync for OS 3.2. Please help. I have tried using other sources too, but my ipod (version 4.3.2) always seem to fail on downloading/installing things. I fail to install AppSync 4.0 from another source and I have also failed to download a GameboyAdance successfully. The gameboyAdvance I managed to download could not save any data.
