Fix: Hash Sum Mismatch Cydia Error While Installing Installous 5

Hash Sum MismatchEarlier we talked about Installous 5, which has one of the major feature now (Download files via torrent), but many users faced issues while installing Installous 5. Earlier, an update was not showing in my jailbroken iPhone 4 and later when Installous 5 update was visible, on Installing I was getting this error : Hash sum mismatch error. Here are some of the workaround to fix this issue.

2 Ways to fix Hash sum Mismatch error in Cydia:

If you getting this error for the first time, I suggest you to retry or try downloading any other app in Cydia and see if it works. Else, here are some of the possible solutions which you can try.

Reboot:

This is the basic step and this worked fine for me. I closed all the apps, restarted my iPhone and tried updating to Installous5 and it worked for me. Even in forums, many users reported the same and it’s working for them without any issue.

Use Alternate source:

Usually we use http://cydia.hackulo.us to install Installous, but you can also try alternate cydia sources like SinfuliPhonerepo. here is the repo address: http://sinfuliphonerepo.com

simply go to Cydia > Sources > Edit > Add and add the following source and then search Installous 5 under it, and install. I tried this method in iPad 2, and it worked for me.

Reinstall Installous:

Another method is to delete installous and remove it’s source and re-add it. This is one method, which I have not tried but many users reported it worked for them.

I tried the first 2 fix for fixing Hash sum error in Cydia and it worked for me. Last but not the least, if nothing works for you: You can start from scratch by re-jailbreaking your phone and installing Installous on fresh device.  Though, I suggest to use this only, when nothing works for you.

Here are few more fixes, which are suggested by users in forum:

Reset Network settings:

You can try resetting your network settings in iPhone or iPad and it may work. Also, reboot your modem once.

Reload Cydia:

On the cydia homepage, reload it to update it and then try and see is you still getting “hash sum mismatch error“.

I tried the torrent feature and for now, there are very few apps with magnet link available, but in coming days we can expect way more. Anyways, do let me know which solution worked for you and if any of these worked (It should), don’t forget to share this post on Facebook and Google plus.

How to Get iPhone SMS Delivery Report

When you send a text message to someone, you always want to know if it was delivered to them or not. If you’re using an iPhone, the stock SMS app won’t give you any such delivery notifications, except on the new iMessage. There are third party apps like BiteSMS that do provide extra features and a delivery notification as well, but wouldn’t it be nice if the original SMS app had it. Well, if you’re using a jailbroken iPhone, then you’re in luck, because there’s a tweak to make that happen.

How to Get iPhone SMS Delivery Report

SMSConfirmation is a Cydia tweak for jailbroken iPhones that brings the much needed iPhone SMS delivery report to the stock Message app. Normally, all the other mobile operating systems do provide the option of whether you want to get the delivery notification. The notifications are quite useful, as it lets you know if the recipient has received your text or not, specially if you’re in a area where this is low network coverage. Times like those, SMS delivery notifications on the iPhone could be pretty helpful.

When you send a text message, a popup appears saying Message sent, which means that your text has been delivered to the recipient. Once the tweak is installed on your iOS device, it will show you the notification pop-up even if you navigate away from the Message app. However, it doesn’t utilize the new iOS 5 notification center features, so no banner/lockscreen notifications. All you get is a popup in the form of the older iOS notifications, which is still not bad.

The tweak is available for free from ModMyi repo in Cydia or you could just perform a search to find it. Once it’s installed, you’ll have to respring your device to be able to receive the notifications and there are no settings for the tweak. If you don’t like it, and want to get rid of it, then all you have to do is head over to Cydia and uninstall the tweak.

Try this tweak and let us know if it worked for you and also if it’s useful. iPhone SMS delivery report is something that we’ve all been wanting to have on our devices from a long time.

Send Music and Videos via Mail with iPodMail [Jailbreak Tweak]

Recently we told you about a jailbreak tweak that can be used to delete music from iPod app directly, instead of heading over to iTunes. Now, the same developer has created another new jailbreak tweak that adds another useful functionality to the iPod app.

iPodMail for jailbroken iOS devices is a free Cydia app that adds a Mail Songs option to the iPod app, using which you can email music to your friends/family. You can also use it send videos. The jailbreak tweak adds the same functionality like the DeleTrack and a new option that says ‘Mail Songs’ will appear on your iPod app.

To install this amazing tweak, head over to Cydia and search for iPodMail and install it. Now open your iPod app and select More. You should be able to see a Mail Song option. Once you’re inside that option, you can just select any music or video and it’ll directly open the Mail app. Slap in an address and the song/video you selected will be shipped to the recipient. Easy as that.

The first tweak did receive some complaints from users stating it did not work on their iPod app. Well, maybe you did something wrong or your iOS version is to blame. Both these tweaks worked perfectly fine on my iPhone 4 running iOS 4.3.5 and I can guarantee you that both of them are really useful. Many a times, my friends have asked me to send songs to them over email and stuff, and now this tweak is going to make it real easy.

Oh, I almost forgot, you do need a jailbroken iOS device for this!

Do try this app out and let us know what you think of it.

How to Lock Applications on Your iOS device [Jailbreak Tweak]

There are many ways a jailbroken iOS device is better than a regular one, the amount of tweaks available that make the operating system better is unlimited. Nowadays, people usually run behind security a lot, as most of their data is either stored online, on their computers and on their mobile devices. Even though all of them are pretty secure, it’s easy to break in to them. We all care about our important and personal data and sometimes we do not want to share it with others.

You can password lock your iOS device, but you can’t normally lock application that might be of much importance to you, for example the Messages, Contacts or Notes app. You might have some sensitive data in some of these applications, certain contacts that you may not want to share with others and important data in your Notes app. Wouldn’t it be much simpler if you could just lock applications instead of everything. There’s a tweak for that!

iAppLocker is a Cydia tweak available for all jailbroken iOS devices that can lock application with password protection for each and every app. You can select, which apps you would want to be locked in the Settings menu and also set the global password. All the locked applications will henceforth require you to input a password to gain access.

As you can see in the above screenshot, every time you launch a locked application, you’ll be asked to type in a password set by you. And, this makes your app really secure, by not allowing anyone else to open it. How to get this amazing Cydia tweak on your Jailbroken device?

Well, first of all, you’ll need to have a jailbroken iOS device. Once you have that, head over to Cydia and search for iAppLocker, install it, head over to Settings and Enable the tweak and set your password and select, which applications you’d like to password protect.

Remember, the tweak won’t get enable right after this. You’ll need to Respring to get the tweak working, the same must be followed when you want to disable it. It works pretty well and I was really impressed, so why don’t you try it out yourself and tell us what you think of it.
