    /private/var/applications is where you need to copy your apps.

    I don't quite follow you, but if you copy the ???.app folder into the location where all your other app folders are and then restart the phone (or re-spring) then this should be all you need to do. A quick question though... what are you trying to install that is not available via installer?

    Hmmm its strange cant quite get it myself i just tried copying the folder to the root/applications and it worked but its folder is not is not available at var/mobile/library and if i copy it to var/mobile/library i get its icon and it does not work or show up on springboard.

    Actually i am trying to install SwapPhoto for 1.1.3 which i downloaded from a thread on this forum if i get a salution a want to install SMSD beta for 1.1.3 as well....thanks for your help...
