Method number 1 (obsolete)

What we need:

  1. JailBreak'nuty device.
  2. File manager, for example iFile
  3. Terminal for your OS.

All downloaded in sidia


  1. We put the folder on the phone in private / var / stash / Applications. (Hereafter, in different ways, I have "Applications.82X3Wf." Remember the name of this folder, it will come in handy later) and create a folder called "Documents" (if not created) in "/ var / mobile /". * there is an interesting point - on one of my iPhone directory "private / var / stash" was missing. That's why I just downloaded the folder with the application in "/ Applications /"! But there is not much space on the system partition, that's why (not) it is necessary to use the BossTool 2.0 utility from Cydia, which will transfer the entire contents of the "/ Applications /" folder to the user section!
  2. Reboot the phone or Respring
  3. We go in MobileTerminal and write "su root" - click input
  4. Enter the password alpine (the letters are not output, so it is necessary) - click the input
  5. Next, we write "cd / var / stash / Applications", (like uvass), for me this line will look like this: "cd /var/stash/Applications.82X3Wf" - press enter
  6. So we got to the folder "Applications.82X3Wf" (I have), it contains the system programs and applications installed by you not from the AppStore. Now we will set permissions for the *** folder. App
  7. We write this line "chmod -R 775 ***. App" - press enter. Done.

* In my case, when I put the folder with the application in "/ Applications /", in the terminal I wrote the lines:

"cd / Applications /"

"chmod + x tetristouch"

PS. All commands are entered without quotes.

Method number 2 (simple)

What we need:

  1. JailBreak'nuty device.
  2. File Manager iFile.


  1. We drop the * .app folder into the directory "/ var / mobile / Applications"
  2. We go into the properties of the folder (blue arrow) and set access rights 755:
    • User - read, write, execute
    • Group - read, execute
    • All - read the execute
  3. Respring or reboot if an icon does not appear.

Method number 3 (elementary)

The folder * .app can be simply dragged into iTunes - the Media Library - Programs, there will appear the usual application (icon, file * .ipa), further as usual.
