    Default How to Transfer apps with WinSCP?
    I have some apps on my pc that I want to transfer onto my girlfriends phone. Right now they are in my applications library. I tried to just sync them to her phone but then it says it will replace all her other apps. How come everything is always replaced during a sync. I dont understand why they cant just be "Added" . So unless anyone knows of a way around this I would like to know how to transfer them to her phone using WinSCP. Thanks guys

    because apples DRM wont allow you to do that. its illegal. there are ways around it, but we cant discuss it on this forum. its against the rules.

    My bad I won't bring it up again lol sorry.

    @ip3
    if it's from cydia there are plenty of arrivals how to transfer apps via winscp. But we can't talk about drm apps from store.

    if the app is a paid app on cydia, i wouldnt discuss copying it cause even though its not supported by apple, someone still made it and if you didnt pay for it..its still stealing. if its free on cydia, there are plenty of tutorials on installing cydia apps via ssh. but yeah, mentioning things that work around apples DRM = big no no on this forum.

    Seriously all u have to do is google transfer apps using winscp. The first result is perfect example just u don't need tunnel software cause u have openssh. Not being harsh just stating the fact. Sorry it it seems mean not trying to be.

    Ok so all u do is connect winscp and goto applications fold from the root (/) an then transfer .app folder in there make sure folder permission is 755 and make it reculusive (check box in permissions window.) this is to be used by free non drm apps only. Even if the App was free in the app store it's still considered drm and they should download from their own iTunes account.

    If I already had it and I want to copy it for myself, then thats not stealing. Same concept as making a copy of a software cd for your own personal use or backup.

    LoL you got balls making an assumption about me like that. Number one my girl is the type of girl a guy like you would jerk off to. No2 I just told her to take a look at your post and she found it pretty amusing. No3 I am the total opposite of cheap, I spend money for fun, and if I can find a deal or get something cheaper obviously I am going to take that route, and if you don't understand that concept then you probably dont have much money yourself and in that case you might actually want to start being cheap. Last but not least number 4 why would you make a comment that has nothing at all whatsoever to do with my thread, an Iphone, or the forum altogether? The only reason I am responding to your post is because im in a good mood today and just felt like making you feel stupid. So thanks for the amusement.

    Thanks a lot man that's exactly the kind of help I was looking for. Oh and I didn't think you were being mean lol. Good instructions, nice and simple, thanks so much.
