Thread: Converting SDK app to Jailbreak app

  1. #1
    Default Converting SDK app to Jailbreak app
    Hi there,

    I Just finished building an app on the Official 2.0 SDK. But I wanted to distribute my app for Jailbroken phones.

    Can someone tell me/point me to a detailed tutorial on how I go about doing this?

    Thank you!

    just don't sign it, and use ldid(from Cydia) on the code file on your iPhone.

    ldid -S /Applications/xyz.app/xyz
    chmod +x /Applications/xyz.app/xyz
    and it works!

    try it with HelloWorld first. (I did)

    Not that I think Apple will actually sue anybody but does anybody know about the legal issiues using the official SDK to develop an app and distributing it via cydia? I suppose that would harm the terms of use of the SDK? And if so what WOULD be Apples legal options?

    Easy, just put a backslash before the space and terminal will understand to interpret it as a continuous command.

    Example to browse to a folder in your home directory called New Folder, the command would be:
    cd ~/New\ Folder/
    or
    cd /Users/John\ Doe/New\ Folder/

    I'm not sure the terms would disallow distribution by another method (have to read more fine print) but I it definitely doesn't allow use of non-public APIs so they could deny you use of the SDK and pursue "damages" whatever that might mean.
