Can I Update Cracked Apps Through iTunes App Store?

Hi, I bought a brand new iPhone 4 just couple of weeks ago, and then jailbroke it using the JailbreakMe 3.0 tutorial posted on your blog. I also followed you tutorial on how to install Installous on iOS 4.3.3. Now my question is, can I update my downloaded cracked apps through iTunes App Store and how can I sync them? I have downloaded and installed some games and apps. However some of them are quite outdated. Thanks in advance.

Hello Natasha, unfortunately, you will not be able to update your downloaded cracked or unsanctioned iPhone apps through the App Store since you have downloaded them from unauthorized App Store. And if you try to update them through App Store it will say app was never purchases and it will ask you if you want to buy this app now since you haven’t bought them before.

Since they are cracked apps, you have to wait for Installous to release a new cracked update. Anyway, in order to be able to sync your apps to iTunes, you will need to install another jailbreak app called AppSync. You can follow the step by step guide posted below:

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.

    After installing apps from vshare, i can see them as downloaded from the appstore. I also updated an app through app store and charged me ( my mum ) money. Does it only charge money if you update cracked apps or is it a matter pf time till i get new pay reciets ?

      Hi, Hackulous is officially dead, so this won’t work anymore I’m afraid.
