Thread: Can Cydia Apps Be Installed With xCode?

    Default Can Cydia Apps Be Installed With xCode?
    I am new to the Apple iOS developer program(paid) and was wondering if there was a way to install apps I have purchased through Cydia onto a non-jailbroken iPhone by using xCode. I'm not to the point where I can write all the programs that I love and use, but I also want to be able to preview the latest beta versions of iOS and not have to keep downgrading and re-jailbreaking everytime I try a new beta.

    I have an iPhone 4 in service with at&t and a 3G that has no service. Both are on current beta right now and can be downgraded.

    Short answer would be no, since a lot of the cydia apps require full system access. Longer answer would be some could possibly, like games and things like that if compiled with xcode.

    Well if it doesn't require system file access the yes u can trick xcode into signing and installing cydia apps onto nonjailbroken devices but on the whole, no sorry.

    AppStore apps are restricted in a sandbox, giving them only restricted capabilities. MOST jailbreak apps need to be let out of this sandbox in order to work, but not all of them
