Thread: Can I use my iphone browser to install apps?

  1. #1
    Default Can I use my iphone browser to install apps?
    I am using iPhoneBrowser (v1.5.2.0) and it does recognize my iphone as jailbroken. I can drag an app from my desktop to the iphone, and it copies.. but that's all that happens.. I can't find the app (or folder) that I copied on the iphone itself (it does show in the browser)... Is there any way of installing apps using an iphone browser?

    Can I add NES roms using the browser? Just trying to figure out how I can use the browser and what it is for exactly.

    Yes you can. I do it all the time. Copy the application folder to your /private/var/Applications directory or depending on your firmware of course and then you have to set the propper permisions for the app usually 0755. I use mobilefinder for that directly on the phone. You can also use winscp and do everything wirelessly including setting permissions.

    That's great, I may have to hit you up for more information about setting permissions in the near future!

    No problem anytime. I also backup apps regulary especially the ones installed with installer so you won't get any surprizes with updates that turn free apps into commercial.
