Tip & How-To about Cell Phones

How to get Installous on your iPod, iPhone, or iPad.

Note that, like jailbreaking and using Cydia, installing Installous is perfectly legal, however using it to pirate paid apps is illegal. While the risks are very low and most apps are only $.99, you can still get in trouble. Do so at your own risk.

Anyways, now that that boring disclaimer talk is over, let's get on to getting Installous! You will of course need your iOS device, and it will NEED to be jailbroken, and has to have Cydia. If you haven't jailbroken or don't have Cydia, click here to be taken to my guide on doing that on the latest version (4.3.1).

Step 1) Open Cydia and go to the Manage tab, and press the Sources button.

Step 2) On the top right corner there should be an edit button. Press it, and now on the top right corner there should be a button that says Add. Press that and type in http://cydia.hackulo.us/

Step 3) Now that the repository is added, make sure you're still at the Sources screen and press the newly added Hackulo.us source. You should now see all of the available apps from Hackulo in alphabetical order, one of which is Installous. Scroll down to Installous and press it, then press Install.

Step 4) Cydia should run some things to download and install Installous for you, and when done, Installous will be the last app on the last page you have. You are now done. Congratulations!
