How to Fix Error 0xE8008001 while Syncing Jailbroken iPhone 4 with iTunes?

Hello Jaxov, I am having a weird error on my iTunes every time I try to sync my iPhone to my computer. Every time I synced my phone, I got "The application "___" was not installed on the iPhone “iPhone” because an unknown error occurred (0xE8008001)". Also, some of the jailbreak apps on my device will got deleted automatically. I have already installed the latest version of iTunes. Is this normal if you were using a jailbroken iPhone? Any idea to fix this? Thanks.

Hello Nelly, the error "The application "___" was not installed on the iPhone “iPhone” because an unknown error occurred (0xE8008001)" occurs because you have pirated apps installed on your jailbroken iPhone 4. You can easily bypass this error by uninstalling all the apps that were installed on your iPhone using Installous. If you don’t want to uninstall your cracked apps, then you will be needing to download and install AppSync 4.0+ in order to bypass this error. You can follow the tutorial posted below on how to install AppSync:

Step 1: Start Cydia app on your jailbroken iPhone
Step 2: Then go to Manage and then on Sources section to view your current Cydia repositories.
Step 3: Now tap on on Edit button and then tap Add button on the top-left corner of Cydia (skip to step 5 if you have already added
Step 4: Then add as Cydia/APT URL then tap on the Add Source button.
Step 5: Now wait for Cydia to reload and update. Once done, tap on Return to Cydia button to view Hackulous repo.
Step 6: Now you have to tap on the Search tab at the bottom, type AppSync in the search bar and then tap on Search button.
Step 7: From the search results, select AppSync 4.0+ and then tap on the Install button.

That’s it! You will now be able to sync your iPhone to iTunes without getting any iTunes error.
