  • Access The AppStore via iTunes
    Well the iTunes 7.7 Out thread lead to something really cool. thefragman decided to make his first posts here on MMi instructions for accessing the AppStore via iTunes. thanks thefragman!



    1) Go to your itunes store home.
    2) Right click on the music link and copy the address.
    3) Paste into your browser.

      Ye, same here, I can't find MMS or Video Recording in the store, does anyone know if them two apps are there?
      Can't wait for the Samsung i900 aka omnia to be releases, I know its going to be soo much better than any iPhone (Present and future ones). The AppStore is a big let down.

      I just saw Sketches on the front page; $8?!? Let the cracking begin...

      Yah, SportsTap is now a native app!

      $10 for Band? Its hard getting used to having to pay for apps now...

      You don't need to wait until tomorrow if you want 2.0. If you are a legit AT&T customer with iPhone account you can install 2.0 (5a347) without a problem.

      You need iTunes 7.7, so make sure you get it before attempting installing 2.0. To get it just go to your Apple Updater.

      The AppStore Icon on the iPhone went live as soon as I installed my downloaded apps.

      If you later want to downgrade (install some other version like a 2.0 Pwned one...), there are numerous posts out there on how to downgrade.

      To downgrade:
      Basically you just put it in DFU mode (not restore), downgrade to 1.1.4. Then try to kick it out of Restore mode with your favorite app (in my case I had to install 1.1.4 twice before I could kick it out) and then use a Baseband downgrader that is already available if you need to unlock your BB.

      I agree as well. The Myspace app looks cool, but come on. I have AIM, Gameboy Advance, SNES, Sega Genesis and radio on my iphone for free. Ill pass on paying for Solitare and an ebook version of "A Tale of Two Cities" on the app store. Keeping my phone JB for now. Hopefully much better games/apps are in the pipeline or someone JBs 2.0

      As opposed to the 70-80% of trash apps found in Installer/Cydia? This has just been released, give it time to mature and companies to jump on it. Plus, the push-service to be released on September is going to be a big influence on future apps.

      You won't find those apps in the store ever.

      If you are legit AT&T go for it. If not you may potentially brick your iPhone if you can't get it into DFU to downgrade.

      not being able to use Customize with 2.0 is what will keep me from updating regardless of the apps they offer
