    How do I download an app on I phone 5 without wifi

    How do you download apps to an UNJAILBROKEN ipod touch without wifi on a mac?

    im new to this so please answer me these; What is a "jailbroken ipod"?and; I downloaded iGopher but it won't run.

    I'll do mybbest to explain this. A jailbroken iPod is basically when you take your iPod and download a third party appetite called cydia. Cydia is not available on the appstore, so you have to download it from the computer, or there are someway to do it without the computer. On cydia there are a lot of apps and tweaks, as they call them. Tweaks really just change how the iPod works, so you can put themes on it, and do stuff that normally an iPod wouldn't be able to do.

    And sorry, I have no experience with igopher, so I can't help you there. Hope that helped.

    Hi my wifi is greyed out. how do you get install on your ipod

    No offense, but you don't have to do all this, but it could help if you don't have iTunes or are running on Linux, or any OS that iTunes doesn't support. You don't need to Jailbreak your iPod to put apps on your iPod without WiFi. Just go into iTunes Store, click App Store, then search for the apps you want. Then, you sync your iPod.

    wat if when you go to the apps in itunes thenyou you cant click anything. what do you have to do?

    I have an ipod touch 4g 4.2.1 and i already downloaded jailbroken apps. How can i install the apps i downloaded?

    dont jailbreak u ipod it voids the warranty and if you upgrade to the new firmware ios 4 you can get apps direct form your itouch!!

    uhhhh if you restore apple cant tell that you jailbroke...also, im not sure what you mean by "direct form your itouch" but the app store has existed since ios 2...but you still need wifi.

     Can you somehow install Cydia without wifi? Im using 3.1.2 and so far, only Blackrain can only jailbreak that, and that needs you to have wifi to install cydia.

    Go here (with Wifi sorry) but do this on your ipod/iphone type this in "jailbreakme" and it jailbreaks it in like 2 min. :)

    doesnt limera1n work with 3.1.2. i have a ipod touch 3g running 4.1 its jailbroke and im connected to my schools internet with it XD. anyways limera1n jailbroke mine without any problems almost instantaneously.

     I have an easier way and its only one word and it is free it is called itunes

    Hi, I was reading the comments from before and I have the same problem when it says "Script and files ready, saved in export directory. No valid connection, no transfer will be performed at this time." I did what you said to the other person like five times. I even restarted my computer twice. Still nothing. I did everything said there. Hope you get back to this soon. I really need to hack my iTouch asap. Thanks!

    Which jailbreak method did you use?

    That's most probably the source of the problem, some methods like ZiPhone don't allow
    USB access to the entire iPhone filesystem. Check if you can see the root directory
    with a tool like T-PoT, iPhoneList or iPhoneBrowser.

    You need to modify your services.plist in /System/Library/Lockdown/


    DOWNLOAD modified services.plist from here

    Check if you can get into /System/Library/Lockdown/
    with Total commander or iPhoneList or iPhoneBrowser.
    If you can,follow these steps

    1.Rename services.plist to bservices.plist (backing up)
    2.Copy the downloaded services.plist file to /System/Library/Lockdown/


    If you cant get into /System/Library/Lockdown/ through Total Commander ,follow these steps.

    1.Create a 'Documents' folder in your desktop.Copy the downloaded services.plist
    2.Copy this Documents folder to your ipod touch (where you can access through total commander)
    3.Make sure you have MobileFinder downloaded to your iPod.(which is available in the installer or download it manually if you don't have wi-fi)
    4.Open Finder.Goto top right corner and click on ~ button
    5.You should see Documents Folder ,open it.
    6.Copy Services.plist
    7.Goto /System/Library/Lockdown/
    8.Rename Services.plist (original file which you find in /System/Library/Lockdown/ ,NOT THE DOWNLOADED ONE) to BServices.plist
    9.paste your downloaded Services.plist there
    10.Reboot Ipod.

    Hope this will help.

    This fix is called afc2 fix. If you have wi-fi, you can download this fix through installer. (don't remember the repo :/ )
