Thread: Taking apps out of appstore ?
07-10-2008, 06:28 PM #1Taking apps out of appstore ?
ok what i notice is that when you download application you can simple drag it to desktop from your itunes. there you can extract it using expander and you will get usual .app folder.
but thing i dont know is can we manualy upload it to phone by SSH?
can this be done with not free apps ?
now all we need is some one with jailbroken 2.0 and ssh or adf to try up this theory
so question remains when you take app from appstore/itunes, unpack it and upload it to phone amnualy will it work ?

It might (and I say this lightly) work for free apps, but pay apps have DRM or whatever protection the iTunes Store uses. Also, for pay apps this would be the same as warez. Either way, I wouldn't delve much into it other than to know how apps are thrown into the iPhone for people working on non-approved 3-rd party apps can throw their apps through iTunes the same way most use custom ringtones.

As Happy Noodle Boy said, for free apps that may be ok, but for paid apps that would be warez

the best way is to take out the apps from the appstore ....crack it ....then post it on the installer ....freaking awesome if possible ....everything will be free by then

I just tested it, and I got the startup splash to showup, but then it crashes and resets to the springboard. I set the permissions to 0755. Anybody else?
This was done with MySpace.
I really want to figure this out because I don't want to have to pay just to get three free apps.

He probably has an iPod Touch which would cost him to update to ver 2.0

I was messin with the eBay Mobile app (trying to get the icon changed, NOT trying anything naughty), and can't get it to work lol. Looks like I gotta re d/l it now...And it will be like a taco inside a taco within a Taco Bell that's inside a KFC that's within a mall that's inside your dream! Springboard screwy after reboot? Here is the fix

To quickly answer why you have to pay for apps in a Touch: the Touch has no monthly bill attached to it.
EDIT: there's a longer, more detailed explanation somewhere but basically since the economic model of the touch doesn't involve paying monthly after the initial cost of the device, any service/app provided to it (for the exception of OS or critical elements) need to have a charge tied to it. I'm trying to google more information but the subject has always been weird.

I'm not familiar with the steps and stuff in installer, but I downloaded Remote, and changed the .ipa file to .zip and unzipped it. Inside was the Payload folder, with the app, iTunesArtwork file, and iTunesMetadata.plist.
Should I try installing it on my 1.1.4? How? Do I drag a folder with everything in it to my iPod and let Installer do it? Or do I just drag the payload into my Applications folder.
Edit: I dragged the .app file, only, into the Apps folder, and it shows up. When you click it, it returns to springboard.
Edit2: I put the .plist and other file into mobile/Library, and no luck. Probably designed to not work....?
