Hackulous Tutorial: How to get Free iPhone Apps
*UPDATE* Hackulous is no more. Not to fear, there is already awesome alternatives!
Check out iPhone Cake:
Info below is outdated. Click Here for tutorial on adding AppCake.
If you want to get free apps for the iPhone or iPod Touch, you must first have your iPhone or iPod Touch jailbroken. After that, simply get on Cydia and add the Hackulous repository;
Cydia -> Manage -> Sources -> Edit -> Add
Enter the link “http://cydia.hackulo.us” like the picture below.
After adding the source for the Hackulous repository to cydia, the next step is to download the Installous app for the iPhone or iPod Touch. The Installous app will be your source for apps.
Cydia -> manage -> Packages
From there whether you want to perform a search function or just scroll down and find it, you will have to install the Installous app. The Installous app will be like an alternative to the iPhone app store.
Once the Installous app is on your springboard, you can use it to find the many apps that are available for the iPhone and iPod Touch. The app will often redirect you to hosting sites via the browser but from there just simply select a mirror and you should be able to enjoy the apps free. Also, if you want to support us so we can put up more tutorials in the future. We are aware that our posts are rather old but stay tuned because we are back up now! Have a great day and don’t hesitate to ask questions!
