Cydia is an application manager program that installs when you jailbreak an iPhone, iPod or iPad. You can use the program to search for and install various programs, themes and ring tones for your device. Installous is a program that lets you install jailbreak apps from iTunes the same way you install official apps. You can add the source that contains Installous and install the application on Cydia by following a few simple steps.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Tap the "Cydia" icon on your iPhone's springboard and tap "Manage" at the bottom of the screen.

  2. 2

    Tap "Sources" and tap "Edit" in the upper-right corner of the window. Tap "Add" in the upper-left corner and type "" in the dialogue box that appears. Tap "Add Source" to add the source to Cydia.

  3. 3

    Tap "Search" at the bottom of the screen after Cydia finishes adding the source. Type "Installous" in the search box and tap the program's name when it appears. Tap "Install" followed by "Confirm" to add the application to your phone. Tap "Close Window" after Cydia installs Installous.
