Lately a new platform gained ground in the jailbreak community, it’s simple and fast. From it beside the usual apps you can even download cydia, so without further ado OpenAppMkt is that platform. But what makes it so special? It’s more like a collection of web based apps aka iPhone web apps. This technique will offer any iOS user the possibility to get any app without the need to have a jailbroken iDevice. Similar to the well-known AppStore and a good alternative to Installous but also to vShare and AppCake, OpenAppMkt is on simple to use platform, so simple that you will not need a how-to tutorial.
Since Installous is no more, most of us wonder what other alternatives to it are out there. Well the answer is simple, in terms of functionality AppCake is the closest as it can get. Some say it’s more like a clone of Installous. And this is not all, you will be pleased to hear that the latest beta of AppCake v4.80 will run on any iOS 9 jailbroken devices. If you want to get AppCake you should know that there are two ways, one is via Cydia and the other way is without Cydia.
What is AppCake?
The most used Cydia cracked AppStore for jailbroken iPhone, iPad or iPod is definitely AppCake, the greatest Installous alternative available for download. AppCake is developed by the iPhoneCake.com team and is available just for jailbreak users with cydia installed on their iDevices. As Installous, AppCake let’s you find many of the paid apps out there for download free of charge. This is a free repo to allow to install cracked IPA files.
Sharing free cracked apps for iPhone or iPad is now made easier with AppCake using Air Drop Sharing to transfer from one device to another the previously downloaded IPA files. AppCake now let’s you know when an update is available for your downloaded apps.
Because of the big community behind AppCake now anybody can request or submit an app.
Requirements to download and install AppCake:
a jailbroken iPhone/iPad/iPod
Wi-Fi enabled on the device
How to Download and Install AppCake
Follow these three easy steps to download and install AppCake Source/Repo:
In Cydia go to Manage / Sources / Edit and Add and enter the AppCake repo: http://cydia.iphonecake.com
Search for AppCake in Cydia
Install the correct version for your iOS device and ENJOY
I personally use AppCake as a reliable source for cracked apps for my iDevice in order to test them. AppCake is very stable and it should work ok but the apps installed trough AppCake are not guaranteed to work or not to harm your device. If you want to have always the latest version of an app installed just buy the app in Apple’s AppStore after testing it.
So if you have jailbroken your iOS 9 device and opted for Cydia install you will need first to add cydia.iphonecake.com repo. You can do this by entering Cydia, then tap Manage, now Sources, then hit Edit and now tap on Add button. Here you will input “cydia.iphonecake.com” and the repo by taping Add Source. Now you can search and install AppCake via Cydia.
Install AppCake without Cydia
If you just want to jailbreak and install AppCake without Cydia follow these easy steps:
You will need to jailbreak your iOS 9 device. You can do this with Pangu tool which is only for Windows users. So if you are a Mac user you will need to setup a windows running virtual machine. So download Pangu tool and start jailbreaking.
After jailbreaking you will need to install OpenSSH via Pangu app on your SpringBoard.
Now you can download and install AppCake by using this link > http://cydia.iphonecake.com/AppCake4.80.deb
Now we need the help of another app, a SFTP client which CyberDuck SFTP Client should do the trick nicely. To connect to our device we need to find its IP address. You can do this by going into Settings > Wi-FI. Now input the address in CyberDuck SFTP Client and install AppCake via CyberDuck
In CyberDuck click Go > Send Command and input the following command line “dpkg –install AppCake4.80.deb” and then click Send
Still in CyberDuck click Go > Send Command and type “reboot” and click Send.
If all went well your device should be rebooting and you will find in SpringBoard AppCake. If you are having some issues seeing AppCake don’t get freaked out there is a solution for this too. Using CyberDuck click Go > Send Command and type “su -c uicache mobile” right about now you will be prompted by an error, just ignore it, then reboot.

Well AppSync for iOS 9 is the best Cydia Tweak available from iOS 3 to now. What AppSync does is very simple… it signs your IPA files so you can install on your iOS device. Apple has build a system when you purchase an app in the AppStore, Apple signs that app so it can only be installed on the device that made the purchase. This is not a problem for those that are purchasing the apps but for those that are searching for cracked or free versions of the same apps in order to installed an shared app you have to use AppSync iOS 9 to fake the Apple signature of the app.
AppSync Source can only be installed from Cydia App Store with or without jailbreak even on iOS 9. If you don’t have cydia installed or jailbreak iOS 9 go to the Cydia Download Page. We recommend jailbreak first and then install AppSync Repo.
Since two well-known software distribution platforms Installous and Hackulo.us are gone, many jailbreak users who are into downloading any software content for free are try to find other alternatives. For most of them this starts to be a long journey.
For those who don’t know other alternatives to these two I will gladly share them with you which are AppCake and vShare, but today we are not going to talk about AppCake instead we are going to talk about vShare and how to install it. vShare supports iOS 8.
If we start analyzing vShare we will see that is quite easy to use. When compared to Installous, with vShare you can download IPA files right away without any hassle like CAPCHA verification or time limit.
In order to install vShare you will need to first to have a jailbroken iDevices. If you haven’t done this yet I suggest you get Evasi0n7, this is an untethered jailbreak version for iOS 8. After this we need to install Cydia. So when the time comes in the jailbreak procedure don’t forget to opt for installing Cydia. Cydia is a digital distribution platform just like AppStore but made to work on jailbroken iDevices. Cydia doesn’t house apps, tweaks, themes or any packages but it’s a mere portal offering you a possibility to download packages from developers from various repos. So the more repos the better choice of getting the package that you want.
Now let us begin our short how tutorial on how to install it on your iOS 8 device.
In order to get vShare we need first to get AppSync for iOS 8. This will help you get the desired app and sync it with your iDevice. You can do this by going into Cydia > Manage > Sources > Edit > Add. In the input field type
