02-05-2009, 03:56 PM #1Is it possible to install duplicate apps?
Alright I bought Appigo's Todo app legitly, and paid the 10 bucks for it, and I like the app, I use it to keep track of recurring events like bills... that's pretty much the only thing I use it for at the moment. The thing is that now that Im back in school I want to use it to keep track of my school work, but I dont want to have two totally unrelated uses for it on one app. Anyway I downloaded a cracked IPA of the Todo app and tried to install it and see if i could have duplicate apps, and it didn't work. It just replaced the paid app.
I know cracked apps are frowned upon here (I think) but I did pay for it, so... I was wondering if there is a way to be able to have two copies of the same app on one phone?
I dont really know much about plists and all that, so maybe it's a simple solution... or maybe it's not possible.
Anyway can someone help me out? Is it possible or not? And if it is, then how?

yes, no? anyone?
...anyway... i found the answer if anyone is interested.
Change the .ipa extension to .zip, unzip the file then go into the payload folder then into the app name folder, find the Info.plist file, open it with a plist editor or notepad
in the info.plist look for CFBundleDisplayName and CFBundleIdentifier, and change the name of the app in those two fields
for the CFBundleIdentifier, it's something like com.developername.appname, just change the app name to whatever you want
save the info.plist file, then afterwards rezip the payload folder and itunesartwork file and name the folder into newappname.zip, then change the .zip extension to .ipa and then install like you would any other cracked app
hope it helps somebody
