How to Install Installous 4.4.2 on iOS 4.3.3 to Get Cracked Apps on iPhone, iPod Touch & iPad?

After jailbreaking your iPhone 4/3GS, iPod Touch 4G/3G & 1st-Gen iPad on iOS 4.3.3, you can install Installous 4.4.2 on your iDevice to try free premium iPhone apps before making a final purchase from App Store. For those who don't know, cracked apps are those iPhone apps whose DRM has been trimmed to make them run on every iDevice and the utility which is necessary to install and sync these cracked apps with iTunes is called AppSync.

IMPORTANT UPDATE 1/19/2013: Hackulous is now officially gone, so you won't be able to download Installous from the repository anymore. As an alternative, you can use other Cydia repos to download Installous from: (Best Cydia Repos 2011, Best Cydia Repos 2012, Best Cydia Repos 2013). Better yet, it is recommended that you check out these Installous replacements.


Download Installous

Steps to Install Installous 4.4.2 on iOS 4.3.3 Through Hackulous Repo:

  1. First you need to jailbreak your iDevice on iOS 4.3.3 using Redsn0w, PwnageTool or Sn0wbreeze tool. Once done, open Cydia on your jailbroken iDevice.
  2. AppSync iOS 4.3.3 (Cydia)

  3. Tap on the Manage tap followed by a tap on Sources section. Now if you see Hackulo.us repo already added in your sources list, skip to step 4 otherwise continue to the next step.
  4. Cydia (Manage)

  5. Now tap on the Edit button on the top-left and the tap on the Add button on the top-right. When prompted for source address, enter http://cydia.hackulo.us as Cydia/APT URL and tap on Add Source button.
  6. Cydia (Hackulous Repo)

  7. Now wait while Cydia updates its repo list. Once done, tap on the Search tab at the bottom and type Installous in the search field.
  8. Search Installous

  9. Select Installous 4 from the search results and tap on Install button on the top-right to install Installous on your iDevice.
  10. Installous 4.4.2

  11. If for some reason you don't have a Wi-Fi access, you can still install Installous on your iDevice without Wi-Fi or SSH access. Just download Installous 4.4.2 DEB file from here, AppSync for 4.0+ (1.1-5) DEB from here and other necessary DEB files from here. Using iPhone Explorer, navigate to the following location and place all DEB files in AutoInstall directory.
  12. Location: /var/root/Media/Cydia/AutoInstall

    Install Installous DEB File

  13. After placing all DEB files in AutoInstall directory, reboot your iDevice. To install cracked IPA files without Wi-Fi, download them AppTracker and place them in the Downloads directory at the following location:
  14. Location: /var/mobile/Documents/Installous/Downloads

    Install IPA Files without SSH or Wifi

  15. Open Installous app, go to the Downloads section, tap on the name of app and select Install option from the pop-up menu.

      Install CyDelete from Cydia. That should bring the cross mark for all your apps downloaded from Cydia as well.

      You mean adding in the Hackulo repo right? Try the same after a few hours. Its probably a temporary server issue.

    When i try downloading installous it comes up with error messages about http something during the download, then after it says the download is complete i cant find installous on my springboard??

    •  
      Pramod5 years, 4 months ago

      Just retry the download after a few hours. Its probably due to a congestion at the server side which has caused the incomplete download.

    Yes, I have Cydia in my Home Screen but I put it in a Group folder… this is what happen.. after jailbreaking my iphone I installed 10 repos “TOP TEN” which I found on your site. When I try to installed Installous 4 for Hackulo.us I received a error message “size mismatch”..(please advise) and so I turn to this alternative using iPhoneExplorer I received that said error “You are accessing a non Jailbreak dir. with your iPhone connected to a Jailbreak Interface.”… huhuhu…

    •  
      Pramod5 years, 4 months ago

      Instead, use iFunBox as an alternative to the iPhone Explorer. Go ahead and download it from here.

  •  
    Joel5 years, 4 months ago

    I Jailbreak my iphone 3gs using JB 3.0 and I’m using iPhoneExplorer but everytime I drag the DEB files in AutoInstall folder that Ive created I received a Warning Message “You are accessing a non Jailbreak dir. with your iPhone connected to a Jailbreak Interface. File that you copy in this manner have system level access priviledges and cannot modified or removed by Apps running in your iPhone. To avoid this issue change the any root directory that is not the Jailbreak root.”….

      Use i-FunBox as an alternative to the iPhone file explorer that your using right now on your PC. Download it from here. That should work just fine.

    I’ve recently downloaded installous 4.4.2 on my iphone 4 but everytime i press the browse button, installous just hangs thus i cant seem to download anything. HELP!

    •  
      Pramod5 years, 5 months ago

      In case Installous isn’t working for you, then try this. Download the IPA file for your iDevice from http://apptrackr.org and sync it back to your iDevice with iTunes. It’ll still install it just like how Installous would do it for you.

  •  
    Derek magalong5 years, 5 months ago

    Why no ipad 2

    •  
      Pramod5 years, 5 months ago

      Because the iPad2 cannot be jailbroken yet. Installing Installous requires your iDevice to be jailbroken.

      put if i put .ipa files manuali installous download folder (with iphone explorer) everything works fine

    •  
      Pramod5 years, 6 months ago

      Sometimes, the file your trying to download via Insatallous may not be available on the server or the server might be down and so its not able to retrieve your file for downloading. I’m sure that this issue doesn’t happen for every app you try to download via Installous. Try to download other apps and let us know if its causing the same issue. Hope it helps. :)

    Hey!
    I´ve jailbreaked my ipod, but when i use Iphone Explorer i locate var/root/media but there´s no cydia map there. I located a cydia map in var/lib/cydia and I try to install the deb files but it doesnt work!

    •  
      William5 years, 6 months ago

      Btw, the only thing that I can see that I did wrong is that i used Redsn0w 0.9.6RC16 instead of Redsn0w 0.9.6RC15 but I can´t see why that would make any diffrence and I can´t find any Redsn0w 0.9.6RC15 to download :S .
