  • julian February 17, 2011, 3:12 am

    hi can you help me i have installous3 but need to update to 4 how do i do this please i have my ipod touch all ready jailbreak?

  • Ezul February 17, 2011, 7:13 am

    I am on Verizon Iphone 4.2.6, I have Installous on my phone but once I download and install the app it never shows up on my springboard. What can be the problem any hints or ideas of what i can do to fix it.

  • Matt February 18, 2011, 2:11 am

    I would suggest just try different download mirrors. Usually have like 5+ different places to download from. Try that, install the new downloads and try turning off/on your phone.

  • Cris February 27, 2011, 11:09 pm

    Hi! I just downloaded installous 4 it it was great! I’m using a 3gs iPhone. Actually, I haven’t had finished downloading an app because maybe I’m having a bad connection again but anyway, I tried the search function and it just crashed. I mean, installous 4 closed. Tried doing it again, the same thing happened.

    Please help. I’m really not a “techy” type. I really want this. Thanks in advance.

  • TIm Green February 28, 2011, 11:05 pm

    I wonder if this worked for you because i have the same problem as Ezul and rebooting the phone does not work for me…

  • Nova-024 March 4, 2011, 1:22 pm

  • Matthew March 10, 2011, 8:12 am

    I am also on verizon iphone using the 4.2.6 firware and jailbroken using greenpoison. I have the same problem with the app not showing up on the springboard. how do i fix it, i restored and rejailbroke the phone. i have powered off and rebooted the phone.

  • JuggaloX March 16, 2011, 3:01 pm

    I use Installous to test out apps I’m curious about. If I like it when an update comes out I’ll purchase it or if I REALLY like the app I’ll delete it and then purchase it through the app store.

    That’s what Installous was originally created for to begin with.

  • Atul @ TechOfWeb March 20, 2011, 7:38 pm
