iPhoneAtlas reports (http://www.iphoneatlas.com/2007/10/31/nearly-150000-installs-of-appsnapp-iphone-3rd-party-appjailbreak-tool-in-3-days/) that one click web-based (http://www.macrumors.com/iphone/2007/10/29/one-click-jailbreaks-for-iphone-and-ipod-touch/) Jailbreak for the iPhone and iPod Touch has seen 144,000 downloads since its release. The programmers estimates that this number represents approximately 100,000 actual devices.

AppSnapp allows iPhone and iPod Touch users to "jailbreak" their device easily to allow installation of 3rd party applications. Using the known TIFF exploit, by simply downloading the image on your device's Safari browser triggers the application to open up the iPhone and install the proper applications.

I think it only released for about a week or so?
Nice! Great job iPhone Dev Team :)

Too bad there aren't numbers for downloads per device. I would like to see the number of iPod touch downloads compared to iPhone downloads.

Can AppSnapp be installed using EDGE or is it meant only for a WiFi connection?

that's good news. maybe it'll push apple to a surprsie announcement of the availability of the iphone native apps dev kit this month instead of early in the new year :D

yes, but it'll be slow.

That's a bit of a generalization, as it is not THAT slow. Slow, yes, but not unbearable.

That would be something like 143,996 to 4.

I'm sure the majority of iPod touch downloads are people with BOTH devices, iPod touch and iPhone. The alternative is the wrong demographic for AppSnapp. Or should I say, the wrong demographic to KNOW ABOUT THE EXISTENCE OF AppSnapp.

You haven't been over to the Touch forums here lately have you?

Ok since this isn't a feature of AppSnapp, do you think maybe you should consider what YOU did wrong? Sadly, so many in this community are quick to blame the software or the dev team or jesus for their iPhone issues.


Hate to break it to you, but when software WORKS on one iPhone, or better one dev team worth of iPhones, then it WOULD work on yours as well.......if you did it right.

Some may say, how can you screw up a one click install? Easy. By installing AppTapp on old firmware, improperly restored firmware, ALREADY HACKED firmware, UNLOCKKKKKKED firmware... Furiously tapping around trying to 'make it work'. Not restarting your phone after install. Not restarting your phone after each of the first few downloads/installs. Not restarting your phone. Not restarting your phone. Not restarting your....oh sorry.


Continuously and obsessively restart your phone during the first stages of any sort of hack/jailbreak to the iPhone and you will be in much better shape than the guys who don't and then blame AppTapp.

Sure I have. I was exaggerating obviously, but not dramatically. In the iPod touch forum are the same 10 ten people posting over and over and over again. MANY posters are people who you see have iPhones or are simultaneously posting the same things in iPhone threads. Its gettting quite annoying frankly.

Hi guys, I tried out the AppSnap, yup worked like a snap...
now what?
how do i get apps onto the iPod?
i tried using Cyberduck and SFTP but doesn't seem to work.
do i need to install SSH onto the iPod separately?

and how do i do that? I tried out the INdependence, but the buttons are greyed out, saying that i need to jailbreak first.

Is there an easier way of getting apps onto the iPod after installing Applications?

thanks

You're thinking 144,000 uploads.

Me, I'll take a religion with unlimited uploads. And a beer volcano.

If AppSnapp did what it is supposed to do, you now have the installer app. tap that. and all the apps are a tap away.

or to install things that might not be listed there first install the SSH access thing then use something like cyberduck to manually access files from your computer.
(of note the username/password i was using with the old firmware was username=root password=dottie, now i had to use username=root password=alpine)

Yay, 144k paperweights when Apple releases a patch for this. Which is imminent. :rolleyes:

I would think people would be smart enough to heed Apple's warning this time around, and not upgrade "modified" iPhones/iPod Touch's without restoring to the stock firmware.

I wonder how many of those 144,000 were on demo iPhones at Apple Stores... :rolleyes: Trick or treat!

this program is amazing but has anyone else been able to use any of the applicaton without it crashing on start up?

I did it, and my iPhone went all screwy. It wouldn't ring, and YouTube wouldn't work.

Did it on my iPhone, went all screwy, couldn't open SMS without it crashing, like... horrendously unstable, restored back to 1.1.1; I don't *miss* or even *want* 3rd party apps so long as they're this unstable.

I would think a lot of those downloads are not being used. I downloaded all the available hacks early on and once I realized that it was more hassle than it was worth, I removed everything and joined the leading edge instead of the trailing edge.

It's not terribly clear how to install this app, but let me try to explain.

You have to install a BSD Subsystem app and Community Services apps, first. Then, installing other programs will work. This has literally taken away all of my iphone frustrations that have ticked me off.

The functionality I got this week:
1. icon showing sms or mail status from phone in locked position in the menu bar.
2. custom ringtones and song ringtones (sendsong)
3. Tetris (aka Tetromino)
4. Email files (sendfile)
5. Finder
6. iStumbler (shows surrounding wifi networks) (aka Stumbler)
7. INTERNET RADIO - yep, the same stations as in iTunes (yummy, Groove Salad)
8. a search program for contacts/dates (like spotlight)
9. etch-e-sketch program
10. Well designed themes (summerboard)
11. CHANGED LAME "NEW MAIL" Sound (I'm using the mario "power up" sound)
12. Voice notes
13. Cell-Tower based GPS (Navizon, only works when wifi is off)
14. Apollo IM for MSN and AOL

End result is, I don't know what apple can give me now. I have all I want on my phone (besides a decent push email and more storage).

It's really worth it if nothing else for the themes, mail notifications and Apollo Instant Messengers. I can imagine that ATT and Steve are pretty ticked since this cuts into ringtone income and SMS income that have been so easily incorporated into the current phone software. The reality is, this should have been in the phone in the first place. These guys are doing great work.

You can still sync with iTunes, but don't upgrade your software until you find out how to guarantee it won't brick your phone. Really though - there's not much else they can provide software wise.

I think you are spot on. Alot of kiddies see a friend with all of the gobbly gook on their iPhone, go home and download and then realize that they are way over their head and decide that they would rather have a iPhone that works. I bet the installed base is significantly less.

The next firmware update will leave many folks who have actually done the installation with a serious come to Jesus talk with themselves.

I would think a lot of those downloads are not being used. I downloaded all the available hacks early on and once I realized that it was more hassle than it was worth, I removed everything and joined the leading edge instead of the trailing edge.

It seems that iPhone crashes and certain applications don't work but I have an iPod touch and I haven't heard any of them crashing or closing down.

BY THE WAY DOES ANYONE KNOW HOW TO UNISTALL APPSNAPP ALTOGETHER????!!! it's a great program but I think I just want to go back to the original applications. Please reply guys.
