Prevent iTunes from Deleting Cracked Apps Downloaded via Installous

Hello Jaxov, I am using a factory unlocked iPhone 4 and it is jailbroken using Redsn0w 0.9.6rc16 on iOS 4.3.3 on my Mac OS X 10.6.7 (recently updated). I have installed the latest version of iTunes. I’ve been using this jailbroken iPhone for a while now, and then a friend recommends installing Installous 4.4.2 via Cydia. Of course, I installed it, added Hackulous as Cydia source and start downloading cracked apps. However, when I connect my Phone 4 on my Mac, iTunes deletes all apps that I have downloaded from Installous through Cydia? What’s wrong with my iTunes? Please guide me how to prevent iTunes from deleting cracked apps. Thanks in advance.

Hello Paul, there’s nothing wrong with your iTunes. It’s working absolutely fine. This is a common issue with Installous apps. Cracked apps will be deleted automatically once detected if you sync your iPhone, iPod Touch or your first-gen iPad in iTunes. So in order to prevent iTunes form deleting your downloaded cracked iTunes apps using Installous, you will need to install another jailbreak app called AppSync. As the name suggests, AppSync will prevent your downloaded cracked apps firm getting deleted when you sync your iOS device into iTunes. Additionally, without AppSync, Installous will throw Invalid IPA: Installation Failed error.  You can follow the tutorial posted below on how to install AppSync 4.0+ (for the benefits of others, I will include the instructions on how to add Hackulous repo in Cydia)

Step 1: Launch Cydia on your jailbroken iPhone (iPod Touch or iPad).
Step 2: Then tap on Manage and then on the 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.
Step 4: Then enter as Cydia/APT URL and tap on Add Source button.
Step 5: Now wait for Cydia to reload and update its sources database. Once done, tap on Return to Cydia button to view Hackulous repo.
Step 6: Tap on the Search tab at the bottom. And type AppSync in the search bar 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! Just wait for Cydia to install AppSync on your iPhone. You can now start downloading cracked apps again and iTunes will not be able to delete it.Download Installous to install Cracked apps
