    this looks great, i am not at home and cannot upload apps manually right now, can anyone confirm this works?

    would there be a way to manage these apps like with installer? or would we need to ssh, or ibrickr everytime?

    Default ummm what?
    This definitely doesnt work for me.... i used the dominos app that you posted, used iphonebrowser to create an app folder in the Applications folder named dominos.app and then copied the 4 files inside of the dominos.app folder you posted into the dominos.app folder on my iphone. it shows up fine on the homescreen of my phone, but when i press the icon, it brings me to a black screen which crashes back to the homescreen in about 10-20 seconds. is this a joke? or am i doing something wrong.....? probably doing something wrong so can someone please help?

    You need to install the .app folder OR if you are going to copy each file then you must set the program to allow execution (chmod +x <appname>, use Terminal on your iPhone or SSH.

    I saw that Finder has "permissions" under the info button (Owner - Read Write Exec etc.)
    Do you know what these need to be set at to allow a program to run?

    Are these the only steps necessary? I did this, then dragged into the applications folder with ifuntastic and the app doesn't work. Shows a black screen with a curved line on it for 2secs then goes back to home. Am I missing a step? What about creating a folder for the app?

    i set the permissions to 775 for each file.. changed the number in the .plist file and all i get it s black scren for 10seconds and back to the home screen..

    any ideas? do i need to change anything else in the .plist file?
